While trying to escape the unwelcome attentions of a drunken squire, impetuous Francine Elizabeth Powell asks the rakish Earl of Ransome to kiss her. He complies--and he's smitten, but Francine doesn't believe it. Now it's a merry chase that could turn a rake into a fool with a broken heart or turn a brazen tomboy into a blushing bride.

Lady Francine is on her way to London to make her debut when she meets the Earl of Ransome. She has heard a great deal about him from her brother-in-law, who served with him during the war. Francine gets entangled in a mess trying to discover the secret behind her sister's estrangement with her husband. She draws Ransome in her schemes and goes from one improbable situation to the next. It's fun, but hardly believable. Still, if you ignore the unlikelihood of the plot, it makes for entertaining reading. An appealing hero makes the book much better than it would be otherwise.CMB
