Elizabeth Cameron is the Countess of Havenhurst and owner of a large estate. She is beautiful, intelligent and almost destitute thanks to the gambling ways of her father and her brother. Reluctantly her uncle provides the funds for her London debut for her to find a husband so that he can wash his hands of her. Ian Thornton is handsome and rich, with a reputation for gambling and of unknown lineage. And as these historical romances go, the path to love is littered with boulders along the way.
When I first picked it up I was put off by the heft of the 500+ pages of tiny print. But as the story progressed I found myself enjoying the story and will probably look up another by McNaught at a later time.”
