London 1776. Dominic is a rake, a gambler and enjoys living dangerously, shocking society with his wild ways. In the early hours one morning he stumbles home from a gambling den, discovering a youth who seems to have been beaten badly. When he discovers that the youth is a girl, named, she says, Jack, he tries to help her, but in the morning she has run away. Then Dominic becomes involved in a mad and tragic horse race, which ends with him being rusticated to the family home at Stovely in disgrace. When he meets Miss Sophie Thornton the fun and games begin. He soon discovers that Sophie and Jack are one! Yet he does not realise what a merry dance Sophie will lead him until all is settled satisfacorily.
This is a delightful Regency Romp. The hero is a bad boy who needs to be taught a lesson and Sophie is the girl to do it. This book is a lot of fun and highly entertaining. I recommend it. Five red roses, Linda Sole
