As thirty–fifth in line for the throne, Lady
Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young
woman, but she knows her table manners. It's forks on the
left, knives on the right—not in His Majesty's
Here I am thinking the education I received at my posh
finishing school would never come in handy. And while it
hasn't landed me a job, or a husband, it has convinced
Majesty the Queen and the Dowager Duchess to enlist my
I have been entrusted with grooming Jack
Altringham—the Duke's newly discovered heir fresh
the Outback of Australia—for high society.
The upside is I am to live in luxury at one of England's
most gorgeous stately homes. But upon arrival at
Place, my dearest Darcy has been sent to fetch Jack,
me stuck in a manor full of miscreants?none of whom are
pleased with the discovery of my new ward.
And no sooner has the lad been retrieved than the Duke
announces he wants to choose his own heir. With the house
a hubbub over the news, Jack's hunting knife somehow
its way into the Duke's back. Eyes fall, backs turn, and
fingers point to the young heir. As if the rascal wasn't
enough of a handful, now he's suspected of murder. Jack
be wild, but I'd bet the crown jewels it wasn't he who
killed the Duke?

Have you ever considered wearing a simple dress with a blazer on top?? That would solve the skirt/blouse dilemma and also cut down on the amount you would have to pack. It's just a thought. I must confess that I haven't had a chance to read any of your books yet, due to things going on in my private life at the moment, but this Fall I will be starting my reading regimen, and you are on it. I love books which are set in England, and you definately foot the bill!! The story line for this book sounds really good, and I'm really anxious to start it!! I might read a couple of your earlier books to get more of a flavor of your writing. Good luck with your road trip!!

I'm a huge clothes fail myself... the only hat suggestion I would have would be a beret!

Rhys, love your column and I am hereby offering to be "your lady in waiting" on your next trip. I can carry your hat!
I would pack a white long skirt and some colorful tops..stay cool and be cool.

Ah Rhys, not only are you a super author...I started with Molly Murphy & then you hooked me with Lady Georgiana..but your blog was a pip! How many writers can tell us of their trials & tribulations with their wardrobe, make us sympathize & laugh at your sense of humor. Can hardly wait to get my gloved hands on a cup of tea & Heirs & Graces.
