Cleone Charteris is the joy and despair of all the young men of the countryside, and she seeks a husband - a man who can duel and dice with the best of them.

One of the men after her heart is the masterful and handsome Mr. Philip Jettan. But compared to other men in 18th-century England, Philip is out of step - he is careless in his appearance and, in Cleone's own words, she cannot marry him because he is 'a raw country bumpkin'. He even refuses to buy a wig! His hopes dashed, but wanting to win over the woman he loves, Philip leaves for Paris - to learn to be a gentleman. Download and start listening now!

    " Country squire Phillip is sent by his father and lady-love out into the world to acquire some polish, which he somehow does between two chapters without the reader's having a chance to observe the transformation, and then shenanigans ensue. Very silly and slight. More like the outline of a book than a fully-fleshed-out, character-rich narrative. Also, Heyer's first-person authorial interjections intrude. "

    " Short and mostly enjoyable. Heyer seems to like to poke fun at convention while still adhering to it, not unlike Austen. I think I may be getting a bit burned out on Heyer, though. I may just need a break. "

    " I believe the word used on the cover is "sparkling".An amusing period romance well worth the read. "

    " Entertaining and fun to read. If you're a fan of Regencies, please realize that this is set several decades earlier. It naturally has a different cultural landscape and language, though it feels like a Heyer cover to cover. Heyer manages to put more swashbuckling into the Georgians than she generally does into her Regencies. Hints of other pre-Regency heroes are here, too, like the one in Devil's Cub. "
