Bestselling author Georgette Heyer, the Queen of Regency Romance, brings her sparkling wit to this story with a Shakespearean twist.

And a heroic rescue
When Sir Richard encounters the lovely young fugitive, he knows he can't allow her to travel to the countryside all alone, so he offers himself as her protector. As it happens, at that very moment Sir Richard could use an escape of his own...
