Written in 1972, this was written toward the end of Heyer's oeuvre. The hero and heroine are both past the blush of youthful infatuation, independent of fortune, and thus confident in everything they do. Annis's confidence doesn't always help, though, in interactions with her paternalistic, patronizing elder brother or with Mr. Carleton, mind you. Her brother, particularly, imposes on her in a way that seems very much like a plot device, and lots of interesting potential is lost. Bizarrely, the hero leaves town just as things start to get rolling. I thought it finished a bit hastily, and missed a number of opportunities, but on the whole it wasn't bad.
