Captain Cardew prefers balls at regional assemblies and small country houses because there he can meet the daughters of the lower class of gentry, who are impressed by his uniform and his rank, and are easily seduced. At one of these balls, at Hawtry Hall, he meets Millicent, a doctor’s daughter, and Hannah, a clergyman’s daughter, and seduces them both, one after the other. But, as he has found before, it is much easier to get into these affairs than to get out of them.

Throw ’em a bit of juicy bait, and you’ve hooked ’em before you can say Jack Robinson - and with bait like this...' He caressed his elegantly-folded cravat and admired himself in the mirror. Jane Austen described Wickh...

  • Pride and Poetry
    Anne Harlowe
    This book was originally a novella entitled Poet of Pemberley and the main characters were Lacy and Elizabeth of Pride and Prejudice fame-but the author, tired of hanging onto Jane Austen’s bonnet strings, decided to rewrite it to stand on its own merits (or lack thereof!). The new title is still somewhat Jane Austen-ish, but she has no doubt that Darcy wasn’t the only proud yo...
