Heyer does it again with this delightful tale of finding love when you least expect it. Young Kitty Charing finds herself in quite a pickle when she learns what her eccentric guardian has in store for her. The mean old goat has put a stipulation in his will that in order for her to inherit his fortune she must marry one of his great-nephews. Say what?! Well, that is just the most absurd thing she has ever heard and she means to take no part in it, except of course, to use it to her advantage.

One of the old goat's great-nephews and prospective suitors, "fashionista" Freddy Standon, joins forces with Kitty to get her out of dodge, so to speak. They fake a betrothal and persuade the eccentric to allow Kitty to stay with Freddy's family in London. She has never been there and is dying to get out of the boring, old house she has been stuck in for years and meet people her own age. What follows is a super cute story that will leave a smile on your face when you reach the end.

Kitty is adorable and naive and sweet, but she isn't your typical flawless heroin - she has her faults like the rest of us and the fact that your never quite sure who Kitty is going to end up with was the best part for me. If you're a fan of Heyers, Cottilion, will be up there with your favorites!

I loved Kitty and Freddy. They are so clueless.
