Marriage to a cruel dandy is not how Hetty Avebury envisions spending the rest of her life. Determined to avoid the match, she raises funds the only way she knows how – by gambling. When her plans go astray, she finds herself on board a man-of-war under the care of its high handed physician. But Hetty soon realizes that Doctor Withington is not quite the stuffed shirt she had first imagined.
If it wasn’t bad enough declaring one of the pressed men as a woman, Robert Whitington has been tasked with the tiresome job of returning Miss Hetty Avebury safely back to her dysfunctional family. Ten years earlier, his father had gambled away Robert’s inheritance, home, and any chance of marrying the woman he loved. So when Robert discovers Hetty gambling, he takes drastic action to cure her of the habit.
Yet with her family and her self-proclaimed betrothed hot on her heels, can Hetty really trust the doctor?

I enjoyed this novel very much. The characters were fun, and the romance between the hero and heroine developed at a nice pace. There were villains to overcome and even an adventurous, perilous sea voyage to increase the drama. Only a Hero Will Do is a story which is well worth your time!
A really enjoyable and totally engrossing story with lots of twists and turns as the plot develops. The two main characters make one of the most engaging couples since Elizabeth met Darcy at the Netherfield Ball, but they did not go on to have the adventures of Hetty and Dr Withington.
