Eliza Crenshawe has run away from her uncle/guardian who plans to marry her off against her will. She runs to Chaunceston Hall to “borrow” a horse so that she might return to her school and her friends. Unfortunately Eliza runs into Colin Hunt, the new Earl of Montieth and lord of Chaunceston Hall. He is less than thrilled to discover that the horse thief is a young woman. He is even less thrilled when she refuses to tell him who she is or why she is trying to “borrow” a horse.
Although the story is fairly predictable it was also a lot of fun. Ms. Jeffries infuses her characters with a sense of fun and sensuality that every read is a delight.
