Frederica Merrivale has come to London for the social season, in order to give her beautiful younger sister Charis a chance to make a good marriage. The Merrivales, a family of solid social standing, have fallen into unhappy financial straits, and the marriage might deliver them from this situation. Frederica herself, a witty charmer, is feared to be beyond marriageable age - she is twenty-four!
But when they are introduced to London society by their distant cousin, Lord Alverstoke, they find themselves both besieged by more suitors than they can possibly handle!
