HURDLES FOR THE HEART
Julia Daventry was an entrancing enchantress--but could she erase the arrogance of superbly attractive, supremely condescending Neville Devereaux?
Caroline Devereaux was an exquisitely adorable young lady--but could she induce the handsome Lord Redvers to cast aside his cloak of decadent Byronic affectations?
Julia and Caroline together were a formidable pair--but could they defeat the evil designs of the satanically seductive Sydney Knox-Gore and his devilishly scheming mother?
A stolen will... a snare of lies... a savage act of violence... and the very contrary ways of men--all made the irresistible darlings turn to each other for all the help they could get....
As a penniless orphan of barely sixteen, Caroline Devereaux scarcely dreamed that she would be whirled into the glittering and fashionable world of Regency high society as the protoge of an entrancing actress - Julia Daventry - the toast of London. Her auburn beauty, refreshing candour and insouciance enlist a host of admirers during the London season - particularly the outrageously handsome Lord Redvers.
But as dashing cousin Neveille and Julia clash about her future - and fall in love! - vile intrigue is afoot and Caroline is set to lose her noble admirer - if not her life!
