Book description
"I dislike all men and I shall never marry one!"

When Durstan Hayle first set eyes on Lady Lorinda Camborne, the toast of St Jame's, her eyes were alight with amusement. Circling the ballroom on a black horse, she appeared to be naked except for the red gold hair which completed her ensemble as Lady Godiva. Incensed by her behaviour, he wagered a thousand guineas that he can time this unpredictable beauty, but he found Lorinda headstrong and defiant even when trapped by her father's greed and indifference.

As Lorinda selected her evening gown, she carefully mapped her strategy. If she was to gain her own way and enslave her willful young husband as she had all her other admirers, she must first captivate him. She would force herself to be charming, even though she told herself that she hated him vehemently.

"He shall love me," she said grimly, "and when he does, I shall scorn him as I have all the others."

How Lorinda saves Durstan's life and how after many surprises the wonder and rapture of love unites their hearts for all eternity makes a thrilling and dramatic story of eighteenth century England.
