Alverstoke will win a true partner if he can win Frederica’s love. I have a super awesome idea! You are so boring. I regret having to take this action. I only wish Heyer had allowed the new lovers more time together at the end, and a little more intimacy but so it goes with Austen and Heyer. Still Heyer brought charm and history in this heartwarming story that was just a plain joy from start to finish.

Because they have no available relations, she seeks out a distant cousin to help lend his countenance.

She is a rich, selfish, ungrateful tightwad. Quite easily the most entertaining member of the Merrivilles. He’s especially bored with family and friends who try to get him to do things he doesn’t want to do, like, say, put on a massive ball to launch his nieces in society.
