Less Romance, more excitement, 29 Mar 2011
A slightly different Heyer novel. The hero is not the dashing type, but a very young man born to rank and wealth, but with very little confidence in himself.
Through taking on a mission to help out a young cousing who is in trouble, he finds that he can manage very well for himself, and proves to be resourceful and brave under very trying circumstances. The heroine is also a shy young woman, and one feels by the end of the book that they really will live happily (almost all of the time) everafter!
