To this end, she projects a cheerfully argumentative persona in the hope that the potential suitors dredged up by her mother will all leave her alone.

Irritable because he believes he is investigating a mare's nest, he is determined to disprove rumors of crooked racecourse dealings as soon as possible so he can return to his political career in London.

In Regency England, Nell Kydd is at her wits' end and it's easy to see why. Her father is dead, her brother, Kit, is missing and her loathsome uncle, with his mismanagement, is wrecking the family estate. She must contend with a perturbing lack of funds, an unwelcome proposal of marriage and a mother who lives in a reality of her own. Cue the arrival of the unsettling Captain Hugo Derringer: an old schoolfriend of Kit's who blows hot then cold, and is discovered at odd times - in odd places - asking very odd questions. How far can Nell trust him?
