"Intelligent, practical Mary Challoner knew wicked Dominic Alastair, Marquis of Vidal, wouldn't marry her sister, despite her mother's matchmaking schemes. So Mary coolly prepared to protect her sister by deceiving Vidal. But she certainly hadn't expected the infuriated nobleman to kidnap her! Reluctantly awakening to his responsibility--and realizing just how serious Mary was about her virtue--Vidal proposed marriage. But after all the carefully laid wedding plots he'd dodged, Vidal had never expected to be refused by a chit! Baffled, bewitched and frustratingly tempted, Vidal swore that Mary would be his wife. Even if it was the last thing either of them ever did"--P. [4] of cover.

Sequel to These Old Shades, the son of the Duke of Avon is just as 'bad' as his father but in a different style. One of Georgette Heyer's very best novels with one of the very best-paired romantic couples. Vidal, meet Mary....

Really witty, as expected of Georgette Heyer. This is a sequel to These Old Shades which features the male protagonist's father and mother. I liked it a lot except I didn't really like Vidal. I think he's too violent and people don't really change that quickly. However, as a romance novel, it definitely was fun to read, and fast-paced. Recommended for anyone who likes witty characters and romance.

my first Heyer novel, it is great...the dialogue is wonderful and the ending is well contrived! I'm thrilled that I have so many more to read!

I believe that this is the only "sequel" written by the author. the Duke and Duchess have their story told in These Old Shades.

This book starts very slow, but don't give up! Once it gets going it doesn't stop. At first I wondered what the heroine saw in the hero, but I realized they both have the same sense of snarky humor.

"I feel an almost overwhelming interest in the methods of daylight abduction employed by the modern youth."
