Very amusing and witty read. Chase the youngest of the St.John brothers' feels that he has to leave England to save the honour of his family that he thinks he has disgraced. He comes to this decision with a heavy heart, not wanting to leave his family. On the way to the coast he gets robbed and hit on the head and is found by the Ward family. Before he know it he is embroiled in a plan to save the Ward's estate from the bank by pretending to be Harriet Wards non-existant sea faring fiancee. This involves the indolent young rakehell in hearding and shearing sheep amongst other things. Add to the mix Harriet's inventive mother, two sisters and two brothers and the dastardly bank official who has decided to marry Harriet himself in order to further his social standing and you have the mix for a Regency romp. Enjoy!
