Summary

A woman of independent means with a healthy dose of cynicism about the male persuasion, Harriet Tremayne is content with her circle of spinster friends and their devotion to literature, women's rights and intellectual interests.  

However, when she determines to undertake a London Season for her beautiful but featherbrained niece, she concedes she must appear less a bluestocking and more fashionable to successfully sponsor this impossible young lady whose only real desire, it seems, is to consume chocolate.  

Certainly her modish new appearance has nothing to do with the attentions of Lord Dangerfield, a wicked man of the world who has designs on the fair niece yet spends an inordinate amount of time trying to sell Harriet on the virtues of his all-too-obvious attributes.

Disappointing

This is another enjoyable light fluffy regency romance by M C Beaton but badly spoiled by the narrator. Apart from the not-so-featherbrained Susan, all the characters sounded as if they were in their 70s. When I come to listen to the series again I will be skipping this one.
