Publisher's Summary

He had nothing to recommend him but his smile, and she was surely too old, and had too much commonsense, to be beguiled by a smile... Miss Abigail Wendover's efforts to detach her spirited niece Fanny from a plausible fortune-hunter are complicated by the arrival in Bath of Miles Caverleigh. The black sheep of his family, a cynical, outrageous care-for-naught with a scandalous past - that would be a connection more shocking even than Fanny's unwise liaison with his nephew! But Abbey, adept at managing her sweet, silly sister Selina, her lively niece, and the host of her admirers among Bath's circumscribed society, has less success in managing her own unruly heart...

Excellent entertainment

A most entertaining and enjoyable book, beautifully narrated by a most distinguished actress who brought each different character to life so well. It was easy to imagine the various scenes, laugh at the idiosyncrasies of the Regency fops and the rigid rules of society. Typical Heyer humour perfectly expressed.

- Hilary

a great Georgette Heyer romance

All Heyer books are good but Black Sheep falls in a certain group I think are excellent (along with Grand Sophy, Bath Tangle, Frederica and others). Black Sheep is a little different in that the love comes earlier - the difficulty is how it will work out. The ending is a little surprising and very enjoyable.
