The Mandarin of Mayfair

by Patricia Veryan

In this final volume of Patricia Veryan's Tales of the Jewelled Men, the eight young gentlemen who make up Rossiter's Preservers are reunited for a final battle against the evil Squire and his League of Jewelled Men. Through five volumes, these heirs of London's families of Quality have just barely fought off the League's attempts to have each of them killed, arrested or disinherited. They stand in the way of the League's nefarious master plan: to oust King George II and install themselves as leaders of a new republic. It is a plot so dangerous that the League members have succeeded in keeping their identities secret even from each other, and so daring that Rossiter and his followers have thus far been unable to prove its existence to the authorities. In the midst of marshalling their forces against the League, leaders Jamie Morris and August Falcon have another score to settle: Jamie has long adored August's delicate, beautiful sister Katrina. For just as long, August - with threats of a duel to support him - has denied Jamie the right to court her. Can August continue to oppose the match or, with the help of Gwendolyn Rossiter, will he learn the strength of true love?
