The Diddington Diamond
To inherit the magnificent Diddington Hall, Lord Allenby discovers that where there's a will, there is most definitely a wife. More
Lord Toby Allenby is very fond of women – perhaps a little too fond. His younger brother, Harry, conversely, has no intentions of even contemplating another relationship – ever.
So, when the boys’ Great Aunt Milly bequeaths the magnificent Diddington Hall to whichever of the pair marries first, Toby assumes the inheritance is his for the taking, providing, of course, he can find a suitable bride.
But add to the mix a scheming mistress, a murderous money lender, an ambitious strumpet, and a bookish accident-prone young lady completely terrified of men, and Toby’s finds his quest not quite as simple as he first supposed.
