At nineteen, Fiona is a beautiful and wealthy Scottish heiress. Yet for some mysterious reason, proposals of marriage have all fallen through. Amy and Effy Tribble, professional chaperons whose School for Manners is the talk of fashionable society, promise to train her in comportment and the feminine arts and guarantee a mutually profitable marriage by season's end. Upon arrival, Fiona behaves perfectly -- until her first ball, when she becomes an incorrigible flirt. Fiona, face-to-face with Lord Peter Havard, an unattainable rake, betrays her real feelings -- and the Tribbles are forced to confront the truth about her past. Is it too late to salvage Fiona's reputation?

She is also the author of more than one hundred romance titles and a series of romantic suspense novels, the Edwardian Mystery series. Born in Scotland, she now divides her time between Paris and the English Cotswolds.From Publishers Weekly:
In the second volume of the School for Manners series, the redoubtable Trib ble sisters are almost outfoxed by a young lady thrown on the London marriage mart, as they undertake another enterprise of matchmaking. Fiona McCloud, an implacable beauty, seems averse to marriage and is adept at dispatching would-be suitors for her hand and fortune. Her attitude undergoes a sea change with the appearance of rakish Lord Harvard. As he attempts to gain the approval of the Tribbles, a cast of familiar characters sets in motion the adventures that will aid and frustrate the spinster sisters as well as secure the proverbial romantic conclu sion. The Regency formula is once again applied with panache and a foreshadowing of the next volume.
