For her, he would do anything... Plainspoken country gentleman Philip Jettan won't bother with a powdered wig, high heels, and fashionable lace cuffs, until he discovers that his lovely neighbor is enamored with a sophisticated man-about-town... But what is it that she really wants? Cleone Charteris sends her suitor Philip away to get some town polish, and he comes back with powder, patches, and all the manners of a seasoned rake. Does Cleone now have exactly the kind of man she's always wanted, or was her insistence on Philip's remarkable transformation a terrible mistake?

Not one of Heyer's best. The characters are not fleshed out and the dialog is not as lively as some of her others. Try Fredericka, The Grand Sophy, or The Talisman Ring instead if you haven't read any Heyer yet. Those 3 are wonderful!

One of Georgette Heyer's earlier novels, a Georgian period story, it's a light tale with tons of historicity to flesh it out. One can see the author's writing style evolving.
