In Regency England, Lady Victoria Courtney secretly loves the dashing Richard, Marquis of Lansdon, who has never noticed her. On a journey to meet her new stepmother, Victoria is mistaken for a woman of the London stage and impulsively takes on the role. She fails to realise that her disguise will throw her into Richard’s path, with surprising results. A romantic comedy by an award-winning author.
This is a lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending.
Jacqueline Diamond’s half dozen Regency romances, originally issued in print by several publishers, have delighted readers for nearly thirty years. Jackie has gone on to sell 100 novels ranging from mysteries and suspense to fantasy, paranormals and romantic comedies. A former Associated Press reporter in Los Angeles, Jackie has received a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine and two finalist placements for the RITA Award.
Diamond is the author of A Lady’s Point of View, A Lady of Letters, Song for a Lady, The Day-Dreaming Lady, and The Forgetful Lady.

“Ms. Diamond is one of the most consistently enjoyable Regency authors around.”
—Romantic Times magazine
“Funny romp, complete with mistaken identity, funny supporting characters, and relatively clean romance that is as sweet as it is enjoyable….I was thrilled to find another author, like Candice Hern, writing in the great tradition of the Heyer Regency.”
-- Regency Reader
“A spirited romp…witty dialogue will help keep the reader hooked.”
