Love and betrayal in eighteenth-century London
Arabella and Nan Tucker arrive in London in 1756 to try and find husbands. But while Nan immediately sets her sights on an older but extremely wealthy bachelor, Arabella is not content to marry purely for money. She firmly believes in true love and is sure she can find a husband who will both provide for her financially and satisfy her romantic desires . . .

Sisters Arabella and Nan are on their way to London to snare husbands because the family coffers desperately need replenishing. While Nan is seemingly serene, Arabella is red-haired with a fiery temper to match. When Arabella alights from their shabby coach with her decolletage on view, how could Gervase, Marquis of Roxbourne, think anything else but that she was for sale? Needless to say, Arabella takes umbrage, but refrains from scratching his eyes out. As she and Nan seek good matches, Arabella attracts the attention of all the wrong men. She doesn't care about money, she wants love. In her zeal, Arabella makes the ultimate fall from grace and is forced into circumstances no one so gently reared should have to bear. Gervase saves her more than once, but she can't get past her intense dislike for him. For fans of tales with saucy, tempestuous heroines and the arrogant men who tame them, Herries' romance is a sure thing. Maria Hatton
