A classic Regency romance in the tradition of Georgette Heyer
Captain William Hawksmoor of the Royal Navy never expected to inherit a marquessate, and is none too pleased when he does so. He is especially displeased when he finds that in order to retain it, he is required to marry within a year, lest he be forever dealing with trustees.
As the new Marquis of Athelney, he takes command of Kingscastle, the family seat, and discovers much to be done to set it in order. There is also his aunt, Lady Willoughby Hawksmoor, determined that her timid daughter should be the next marchioness. When she discovers he is far more interested in Eleanor Burgess, her underpaid and much put-upon companion, Lady Willoughby shows she will stop at nothing to keep them apart.
