From the bestselling author of Agatha Raisin, M.C. Beaton, a sumptuous Regency Romance
Modern notions were all well and good but where did one find a man to share them?
Though Frederica chafes at the restricted life she lives as the adopted daughter of an infamous bluestocking, she does agree with the philosophy: until men learn to appreciate women as intellectual equals, Frederica is better off without them!
But her sister s recent elopement sparks fires of romance in Frederica s well-educated head. She is ripe to accept the considerable charms of Lord Harry Danger who saves her from a pack of drunken thugs - but if only he would treat her as an equal and stop all that silly flirting!
