Elizabeth Baileyabout this book: Life for a women without means was tough in the Regency. An orphan, Lily Daubney was taken in by a relative. This was a common occurrence, but really it was the luck of the draw. Lily drew blank. Mrs Guineaford treats her like a drudge, an unpaid servant she can bully. Lily takes solace in her piano, learning music by default because her cousin Cynthia can't be bothered to practise and Lily benefits instead from the lessons.
Grown up, Lily has no prospect of changing her life, but she tries to make the best of things until she meets the dissolute Vincent, Lord Wintringham. Intrigued by what she hears of his reputation and by his careless appearance, Lily catches his interest.
Vincent is desperate for a wife, or he's going to lose his inheritance. His reputation is so bad, no debutante will look at him. But Lily proves an attractive prospect and he offers a bargain marriage. Astonished when all she asks in return is a piano, Vince thinks his problem is solved. But Lily can't bring herself to accept a man she hardly knows.
But Vince persists, creating so much mayhem for Lily she has no choice but to accept his offer. Can this extraordinary marriage of convenience promise anything but disaster when the husband is so selfish and the wife so naive?
A Regency romance in the classic tradition.
