Publisher's Summary

Two sisters vie for a notorious Marquess in this historical romance by bestselling author Marion Chesney

Must one sister suffer in poverty while the other lives in the lap of luxury? This question plagued Harriet Clifton incessantly. Inviting herself to her widowed sister Cordelia's posh London townhouse for the season was surely the only way to meet a suitable partner - as well as escape drafty old Pringle House forever.

The vain Cordelia was meanwhile casting her net for the notorious Marquess of Arden, a man who would rather court a mistress than wed a wife.

Who would have believed that the Marquess would succumb to Harriet's countrified charms? - or that Cordelia would stoop quite so low as to try to conquer the Marquess at her own sister's expense?

Best ending ever!

All of the usual Marion Chesney romance elements - sweet girl, pretty but in an unfashionable way and poor, meets rich rakish aristocrat. Everyone is against them, but they still manage to fall in love. This one is different, however, because it has the addition of three of the best and most hilarious ending twists, ever!

Another light and enjoyable romance!

I always enjoy M C Beaton books because they are full of interesting characters and twists and turns in the story line that you wouldn’t expect. She keeps her books moving along. The narrator is also very good.
