The downstairs staff at a Regency London townhouse prepares for another season in this delightful series by the New York Times - bestselling author . . .

The house at 67 Clarges Street in Mayfair has a new pair of renters - pretty, young Emily Goodenough and the silent, mysterious man she calls her uncle. Emily is in London to find a husband - though her awkwardness in society could prove to be an obstacle.

The servants, led by Rainbird the butler, suspect there is more to the story and soon uncover the true identities of the Goodenoughs. The question remains whether in spite of it all, Emily can capture the heart of the ton's most eligible bachelor . . .

Originally published under the name Marion Chesney, this is a delightful story of love and intrigue in a quirky London household, by "a romance writer who deftly blends humor and adventure" (Booklist).
