Add to Wish List
When Lord Francis Kneller first sees Cora Downes, she is
tripping over her own feet, shrieking, and laughing rather
too loudly. His conclusion is that she is a frightful young
lady. When Cora first sees Lord Francis, he is wearing a
bright satin turquoise coat with silver and turquoise
striped waistcoat and silver knee breeches and copious
amounts of lace. She immediately thinks of peacocks. Cora
has a habit of getting herself into dreadful scrapes, and
Lord Francis always seems to be close enough to get her out
of them--at the cost of compromising her once too often.
Soon this ill-assorted pair is forced into a marriage
neither of them has sought. The book is a farce.
