Humphrey Freen, son and heir of the Marquis of Cornford, has 'a pronounced turn for duelling' in the caustic words of his one- time precocious travelling companion, Miss Anne Thouvenal. The half-French Anne is darkly attractive, but far too outspoken and ramshackle to pass muster with the disgraced and embittered young Earl. Humphrey is also a sore trial to his elder sister, the Lady Philippa, and never more so than when he attends her through her latest London season.
