Description - The Black Moth by Georgette Heyer
Jack Carstares, the disgraced Earl of Wyncham, left England seven long years ago, sacrificing his honour for that of his brother when he was accused of cheating at cards. Now he is back, roaming his beloved South Country in the disguise of a highwayman. Not long after his return, he encounters his old adversary, the libertine Duke of Andover, just in time to dispute at the point of his sword the attempted abduction of a society beauty. But foiled once, the 'Black Moth' has no intention of failing again. With this peerlessly romantic and dashing story shows Georgette Heyer's great skills fully formed even at an incredibly young age - and how she was set to work over the hearts of readers around the world.
