Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Regency Romance series, The House for a Season, from the bestselling author M.C Beaton.
Is number 67 Clarges Street the unluckiest house in Mayfair? Every Season the beaux mondes of the Regency would hire a house in the heart of London's fashionable West End at disproportionately high rent for often inferior accommodation and yet No.67 Clarges Street, a town house complete with staff, remains vacant from year to year. Could it be that it is associated with ill luck and even death? Something must be done so that the servants of this house don't lose their livelihood...
Salvation seems to come in the form of Roderick Sinclair who confirms he wishes to rent the house for the current season. The staff are overjoyed - until they find that Mr. Sinclair is a terrible miser who is planning no parties. Furthermore, his ward, Fiona, though a dazzling Highland beauty, does not seem to possess one bright idea in her head. But it is Rainbird, No.67's clever and elegant butler, who sees through her façade and resolves to help his mysterious mistress in whatever way he can...
About the Author: M.C. Beaton is the author of the hugely successful Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, both published by Constable & Robinson. She left a full time career in journalism to turn to writing, and now divides her time between a flat in Paris and a village in the Cotswolds very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
