Although Philip Jettan is handsome, he is an awkward, tongue-tied youth—hardly the type to impress Cleone, who is just back from fashionable London. Determined to become the kind of man Cleone desires, Philip travels to Paris and transforms himself into an elegant gentleman, becoming a sensation among the genteel class. When Philip returns to England to win Cleone's love, however, each of them will be surprised by the truth about their feelings. First published in 1923—and also known as Powder and Patch—this is the sophomore novel of Regency Romance stalwart Georgette Heyer.
