When 17-year-old Susan Fyfield is engaged to the dashing man-about-town Beau Eversley, it should make her the happiest girl in England.

After all, Beau is everything she could wish for: handsome, charming and from a good family.

The trouble is, in announcing her betrothal to her aunt and sister, she has made one small oversight.

With typical impetuosity, she has neglected to tell Beau himself.

Susan is surprised when Beau actually agrees to the plan: to help her out of the situation in which she has landed herself, not only will he consent to the pretence but will also allow her to break off the engagement whenever she chooses.

But then a revelation about Susan’s past casts a shadow on the history of her parentage and she realises deception is all around.

Will she ever discover who her real mother and father actually were?

Can she be destined to marry the man she truly loves?

The Clandestine Betrothal is a page-turning historical romance from a true mistress of the genre, which fans of novelists such as Georgette Heyer will surely enjoy.
