Delightful Regency romance from the author of the Agatha Raisin series; now a major new drama from Sky 1
Poor Lucy was living a dream. She had married a gambler, a womanizer, and a drunkard. And she refused to admit that his frequent overnight absences were of any significance.
The sting came when it was revealed that Lucy's parents had bought her husband for her. And then one night at a ball, Lucy met the charismatic Duke of Habard and suddenly anything seemed possible.
