Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Stunned when the lovely lady he is painting suddenly comes to life on the canvas and talks to him the Duke of Caswell can only conclude that his mind has finally snapped. But when his search for help sends him to Sir Osgood Bannister, the noted brain fever expert and doctor to the king, he ends up in the care of the charming, na ve Miss Lilyanne Bannister, and his life suddenly takes on a whole new dimension. A frustrated, artistic rake, a lively heroine who knows that life has more to offer than she has experienced, and a sassy, outspoken painting add zing to this traditional Regency, which features witty dialog, a clever plot, and a large helping of humor. Metzger is a popular writer of lively, humorous Regencies (Miss Westlake's Windfall) and lives in Long Island, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
