Engaging drawing room intrigue. Katharine dreads the visit of newlyweds Elinor and Tom, which forces her out of comfortable solitude. The young couple are dazzled by the sights of London, which unfortunately includes for Tom, the flirtatious Countess Standen. His scandalous open adoration becomes fuel for the gossip-hungry ton. Katherine is co-opted to help Cousin Elinor, although her ideas have much to be desired. The dashing Oliver, Lord Stonenden, AKA Stoneheart, also offers his aid. He is roundly rebuffed by Katherine, who once turned down his proposal with the words, “You are the most odiously arrogant man I have ever met!” Katherine’s stubborn streak blinds her to Oliver’s growing affection and changed character. Unlike other Londoners, he is genuinely interested in her time in India and her passion for painting. When an art critic insists that only a man could have created work claimed to be hers, Oliver helps her prove her ability, which involves time together with his handsome self as model. A kind companion, Mary, and friend Eliza, conspire to help Katherine notice Oliver’s overtures, a feat not easily accomplished that keeps the pages turning.
