Synopsis

GEORGETTE HEYER'S REMARKABLE FIRST NOVEL

'If Bridgerton whetted your appetite for Regency fiction, don't miss an eye-catching hardback reissue of The Black Moth' Sunday Express

'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' Joanne Harris

'Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes . . .Utter, immersive escapism' Sophie Kinsella

______________________________

Diana Beauleigh is caught between two men.

Seven long years ago, Jack Carstares, the Earl of Wyncham, sacrificed his honour for his brother and has been in exile ever since.

Returning to England, Jack pretends to be a gentleman named Sir Anthony Ferndale but makes his living in a most ungentlemanly fashion, as a highwayman and a gambler.

When Jack encounters his nemesis, the Duke of Andover, in the midst of kidnapping Diana Beauleigh, the two old enemies come to blows.

Can Jack save the beautiful Diana from rakes, kidnap and ruin...?
