Miss Jane Nichols attracted the attention of Edward Brydges, the Duke of Chandross, when she had the effrontery to dun him at a Christmas season ball on behalf of a modiste!

Why would a beautiful young lady of the ton be so concerned for a middle-aged, frumpy French dressmaker? The mystery and novelty of it distracts the Duke from his own troubles and leads him on a journey of discovery to his own hearts greatest treasure.

This book is a diamond of the first water and a perfect example of the best the Regency genre has to offer its devoted fans. Ms. Fairchilds SUGARPLUM SURPRISES shines a joyous light on the Regency era and transports readers into the heart of the bon ton. (Nov., 228 pp., $4.99)
