This is the story of Rebecca Parrish, who is widowed, has a five year old son, and a mass of debts since her husband was killed.
After the customary year of mourning, she comes back into society looking for a man to help pay her debts. She sets her eyes on Sir Peter Ward, handsome and RICH. But she is also drawn to Trevelyan deVillars (whom I love and is a great character) who is pennyless and a rake.
During Rebecca's quest to win Sir Peter, there is much hilarity, as well as duel and the appearance of Jacobite rebels.
