She is pretty, and an heiress. Phillipa, in love with Charles, is distraught.Then her French cousin Sophie du Plessis comes to London and promises to help her. Their mothers were twins, and the girls are sufficiently alike to confuse people who do not know them well.When Hugo sees Sophie on her own he offers her a lift home, intending to pursue his suit in the belief she is Phillipa. She maintains the deception, hoping to prove to her uncle that Hugo is not a fit husband for Phillipa.Her behaviour is, however, unlike Phillipas shy response, and Hugo is intrigued.Marina Oliver has published over sixty novels and several non-fiction books. Most of her historical novels, twentieth-century sagas, contemporary romances and crime books are now available as e-books.
