The romantic adventures of a reluctant Regency heiress...

When the reputable George Ferris asks for Miss Jennifer Purhcas's hand in marriage, Jennifer's Uncle and George's eccentric aunt, the Duchess of Lewes, believe the match is a perfect one.

However, no one thinks to ask for Jennifer's feelings on the matter.

As it turns out, the high-spirited and defiant Regency heriess insists there is no way she will be forced to marry the odious George Ferris, whom she has never even met.

Running away she joins the Laverstoke family as a a penniless governess.

However, it is not long before the naturally fiery Jennifer finds herself in some difficult to explain situations, all too frequently witnessed by the masterful Mainwaring, guardian to the Laverstoke children.

But that is only the beginning of Jennifer's adventures, and with her Uncle determined to seek out and reclaim his missing niece - and her fortune - it becomes increasingly difficult to keep her true identity hidden from the world...
