SUMMARY

"I am about to present society with a second Lady Courtly: young – blushing eighteen; lovely – I have her portrait; rich – I have her banker’s account. An heiress and a Venus!"

The setting is Oak Hall, Gloucestershire. Some have come for money, some have come for marriage, and some have come for as much free alcohol as they can get their hands on.

Sir Harcourt is brought out of his fashionable life in London by the prospect of marriage to the beautiful Grace Harkaway, several decades his junior. Distraction soon presents itself, however, in the form of her hearty, and very married, cousin, Lady Gay Spanker.

Meanwhile his son Charles turns up - fleeing from his debts - along with a mysterious but charismatic companion, Dazzle, before long he is in disguise and in love, with his father’s bride to be.

The wheels are set in motion, and there will be pistols at dawn before the weekend is out.
