A renowned gamester, and the first to own that he is untroubled by a romantic disposition, Max Ravenscar regards all eligible females with indifference. But when he learns that his young cousin Adrian is bent on marrying Deborah Grantham, beautiful mistress of her aunt's gaming house, he meets an opponent in whom all his experience of risk and gambles finds him unprepared. Full of typically rogueish heroes and beautiful heroines, Faro's Daughter shows all the qualities that made the greatest romantic novelist of her age, and won her a huge audience that continues to this day.
