When a young nobleman accidentally mistakes Harriett Wilson, the jewelry designer, for the other, infamous Harriet Wilson, he decides to make reparations by commissioning an extensive array of jewels in his brother's name. But the wrong jewels are given to the young man's paramour, and Miss Wilson must correct the mistake or suffer a bad reputation at the "lady's" hand. Mistaken identities and vengeful old enemies round out this sparkling, multifaceted gem of love and larceny. Martha Kirkland spins a free-spirited and fanciful tale of a feisty heroine, a fashionable hero and a flamboyant villain in MISS WILSON'S REPUTATION (4). (May, 213 pp., $4.99)
