A fun, witty regency romance from best-selling author Jane Ashford.
Young heiress Lady Elisabeth Elham has no need for marriage, but warding off London's most charming suitors is easier said than done.
Miss Elisabeth Elham is an unlikely heiress. She never knew the curmudgeonly uncle who died suddenly and left her a fortune. She's proud, outspoken, and independent - a definite challenge for London's fortune hunting suitors.
As various determined gentlemen vie for her attention at balls, routs, picnics, and parties, Elisabeth finds herself embroiled with a charming rake, a mysterious nabob, and an elegant neighbor. This would all be great fun, if only she wasn't so fascinated by the one man in London who's not trying to woo her....
Originally titled Bluestocking, this story has been unavailable for over 25 years.

Good storyline

I really enjoyed the storyline. Such a relief to be spared the usual selling points of a novel. Lucy Scott has a sweet voice but please look at pronunciation. Not A-lisabeth - it is E-lisabeth, not a-mmediate - it is e-mmediate etc. This jarred throughout the reading unfortunately
