The first book in M.C. Beatons charming Poor Relation series. What do you do if you are of noble stock- but impoverished- and living in London with a certain style to maintain? One has to work... but Ones relatives will be appalled when One turns Ones hand to trade - and opens a hotel- The Poor Relation- offering employment to others of the same social standing and in the same awkward situation. This is precisely what Mrs Fortescue decides upon and- together with friend Colonel Sandhurst- transforms her decrepit Bond Street home into a posh hotel- offering guests the pleasure of being waited upon by the nobility. So with the help of other down-and-out aristocrats they do just that - and Londons newest- and most fashionable! - hotel is born... much to the dismay of the Duke of Rowcester- Lady Fortescues nephew- who is convinced his aunts foray into trade will denigrate the illustrious family name!Romance fans are in for a treat - Booklist[M. C. Beaton] is the best of the Regency writers - Kirkus Reviews... Please click here to ask a question
