A dashing man of honor... En route to propose to his sensible acquaintance Lady Hester, Sir Gareth Ludlow finds young, pretty Amanda wandering unattended and knows it is his duty to bring her back to her family. This turns out to be a challenge as Amanda seems to possess an imagination as intriguing as it is dangerous. A shocking refusal... Lady Hester stuns both him and her family when she refuses him. At her age, no one would expect her to turn down such an eligible suitor. But Lady Hester has met the indomitable Amanda. How can the quiet, intelligent Hester hope to compete with such a lively young lady?

As a long-time fan of Georgette Heyer, I remembered this title as not among her best. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it deserved a better standing among her Regency romances than I had initially given it. Sir Gareth's attempts to keep the beautiful young runaway Amanda from harm fill most of the pages. The minor role played in the story by Amanda's true love, and the late entrance of the introverted Lady Hester (who loves Gareth) will keep some readers from fully enjoying this title in the Heyer canon. Amanda's escapades are funny, and all ends well for the two couples. Those who haven't yet tried Heyer might prefer "The Nonesuch". "The Reluctant Widow", "The Talisman Ring", or "Cotillion" for their first read by this founder of Regency period romance.

I liked it mostly but was severely disappointed in the ending. No one ended with the people I wanted them to be with!

I enjoyed this book, but had to try to interpret the meanings of many phrases that are not common in English speaking Canada (of today). Even the title is difficult to decode without reading the book. I simply had to skim over many colloquialisms without understanding their intended meaning. I never had this much difficulty when reading any of Jane Austen's work.

Not Heyer's best, but a fun, frothy romp nonetheless.
