'I dislike all men and I shall never marry one!' When Durstan Hayle first set eyes on Lorinda Camborne, the toast of St Jame's, her eyes were alight with amusement. Circling the ballroom on a black horse, she appeared to be naked except for the red gold hair which completed her ensemble as Lady Godiva. Incensed by her behaviour, Durstan wagers a thousand guineas that he can time this unpredictable beauty but finds Lorinda headstrong and defiant even when trapped by her father's greed and indifference. How Lorinda saves Durstan's life and how after many surprises the wonder and rapture of love unites their hearts for all eternity makes a thrilling and dramatic story of eighteenth century England.
