Martha Kirklands independent heroine finds an unlikely champion in the form of a notorious rake when she arrives in a small community in the Peak District to take up residence in her recently inherited cottage. Although the absolute last thing THAT SCANDALOUS HEIRESS (3), who is already shocking the townsfolk by living alone, needs is the attention of a known debaucher. Fate conspires to throw them together anyway, and an unlikely love affair is born. Throw in a dash of mystery, and you have fine reading entertainment.
