Overview

As a gambler's daughter, Frances was resigned to spending her life masquerading as a boy, learning how to shoot a pistol and fight with a sword. Constantly moving from town to town, it was far safer than being a girl. But when her father dies suddenly, she must pack her bags and return to England, to search for the family she has never met. Hoping to find her place at last, the last thing Frances expects is that she will need to continue the masquerade - or risk her life and her heart.A light-hearted Regency Romance.

What People are Saying About This

Demelza Carlton

“I had difficulty putting this one down - and I don't read romance, as a rule.

So to find Peter Francis - a character I already liked from the beginning - wasn't a man at all, I thought of my favourite Shakespeare play, Twelfth Night. Yet the style was more like something out of one of Jane Austen's books, as the title tells you exactly when it's set - Regency England.

While maintaining a careful balance between description, romance and action, Vera Loy kept me riveted from start to finish.

Poor, confused Richard Carleton...ah, but I won't spoil it for you, as this story does have surprises in it that I certainly didn't expect.

I think the bit that disappointed me most was discovering that Peter Francis wasn't a man, for he was the character I loved most throughout the book. For that I blame Ms Loy - she wrote the character far too well. It didn't detract from the story in the slightest, though, as the gender contrasts are clearer in this book than in any of Austen's and make for some very funny plot twists.

Well worth reading, I'm pleased I purchased this book, so I can read it again.” --Demelza Carlton (author of the Ocean's Gift series)
