Patricia Veryan's superbly entertaining Regency romances have inspired Library Journal to call her "one of the most able writers of this genre," and The Chattanooga Times to proclaim her "a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer at her very best." Now, in The Noblest Frailty, Patricia Veryan continues this splendid tradition as she follows the adventures -- and misadventures -- of Yolande Drummond, Alain Devenish, and Craig Tyndale.
Yolande has been promised to her cousin Alain ever since she can remember, and there is no doubt that the handsome couple would make a striking and suitable match. Yet Yolande is concerned by Alain's propensity for youthful pranks, even at the advanced age of four and twenty, and hesitates to set a date for the wedding. When their dashing but thoroughly unsuitable cousin Craig Tyndale arrives from Canada, Yolande fears that all her fondness for Alain may not keep her from falling in love with the man who is his deadly rival.
The latest volume in Patricia Veryan's extraordinary Sanguinet Saga, The Noblest Frailty takes us and its Regency coterie from the tame English countryside to a haunted castle in Scotland. As we meet the delightful waif Josie Storm and Craig's Indian ally, Montelongo, who is not quite what he seems, we know that we are once again in the hands of an enthralling storyteller
