    Summary

    "Lady Talgarth - Sancia - was a sort of chère amie of my father’s," Sophy said, hurtling towards a turnpike. The groom operated the yard of tin. "Although eventually they decided they were not suited, and Sancia married Sir Vincent. The thing is that she may be very languid and Spanish but she is not at all prone to fancies -" they shot through the turnpike - "and if she says she has a poltergeist, she has a poltergeist."

     

    "Good heavens," said Drusilla, indignant, "is that all?"

     

    "Yes." Sophy slowed. "There really was no need to spring the horses, but they were restive and that was the most suitable stretch of road."

     

    "That is not what I meant," Drusilla said, "although - Sophy, why didn’t she just have the curate deal with it?"

     

    "Sancia is a Catholic. She considers the Church of England anaemic and untrustworthy. And besides, the curate stammers."

     

    ***

    Five ghosts Sophy and Drusilla laid to rest, and one they did not.

    Summary

    "I knew that infernal Baluchistan Hound would land us in trouble one day," said Alverstoke. Mr Henry Pottinger's letters of introduction and interest in Lufra are awkward, but Alverstoke can tell a polite and starched up story to deal with that. However, Frederica knows that if something can go wrong, it will, and so she's not surprised when his morning call is at the most inconvenient of moments.

    Summary

    Somehow, Frederica thinks that domestic peace will only be the start of their shared happiness. While peace proves elusive, there are distinct benefits to the louder, and more boisterous, aspects of marital happiness.

    Summary

    Vernon Dauntry, Marquis of Alverstoke, had been quite determined to snub the Merrivilles before ever he set foot in their house; the sight that met his eyes as he entered their shabby drawing-room made him all the more so. While the young lady who raised her head from her letters and stood to greet him was dressed elegantly, and wore an air of well-bred assurance that he approved even though he was surprised by it, he could see her gathering the threads of the power he most disliked about her.

    Inwardly, he cursed Charles Trevor. A mushroom was one thing. A mushroom who sought to use glamour to influence him, or gain his interest, was quite another.

    ***

    Vernon Dauntry, Marquis of Alverstoke, makes the acquaintance of the excessively magical Merrivilles.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Kentmere is settling into married life with her husband and new daughter, when her domestic peace is disturbed by her young, tempestuous brother.

    But what has brought Vernon rushing out to the country?

    (a speculative prequel to Heyer's Frederica, inspired by a couple of lines from canon and my personal fanon that Vernon Dauntry was an intense young man, not totally dissimilar to Jessamy Merrivale)
