Seventeen-year-old Althea is the sole support of her entire family, and she must marry well.
But there are few wealthy suitors - or suitors of any kind-in their small Yorkshire town of Lesser Hoo.
Then, the young and attractive (and very rich) Lord Boring arrives, and Althea sets her plans in motion.
There's only one problem; his friend and business manager Mr. Fredericks keeps getting in the way. And, as it turns out, Fredericks has his own set of plans...This witty take on the classic Regency - Patrice Kindl's first novel in a decade - is like literary champagne!
