"You have been cheated." The dying words of her uncle irrevocably change the life of Miss Felicia Brook and the handsome gentleman who provides aid and assistance after a carriage accident strands her at his home.

Although Felicia had resigned herself to life as a poor relation after her father failed to make provision for her in his will, she had no idea that the will was not legitimate. But now, with the help of Lord Chessyre, she has a chance to find out the truth once and for all, even if she loses her heart in the process.

While phrasing is uncharacteristically awkward in places, romance fans will be pleased with this entertaining diversion from a favorite Regency pen. (June, 224 pp., $4.99)
