Collection of Regency short stories . . .
THE GALLANT GAME OF LOVE . . .
The meeting of eyes at a ball -- the touch of hands in an open carriage -- one breathless, moonlit kiss . . .
This is the stuff of which stories like these are made. Here is the vanished world of great country houses and London in the Season; of titles and fortunes and scandalous elopements to Gretna Green; of sprightly schoolgirls and bored men of fashion, pretty widows and charming peers -- a frivolous, decorous world where marriages of convenience threaten but love always triumphs.
