Determined to secure a brilliant marriage for her beautiful sister, Frederica seeks out their distant cousin the Marquis of Alverstoke. Lovely, competent, and refreshingly straightforward, Frederica makes such a strong impression that to his own amazement, the Marquis agrees to help launch them all into society.

Frederica is the story of the Marquis of Alverstoke, a confirmed bachelor, and Frederica Merriville, the bold but uncalculating woman who wins his heart.

I’m sure I’ve read dozens of books that feature noble bachelors, none of whom intend to marry until they meet the heroine, and no doubt several of them may have been inspired by this book.
