What A Lady Requires is the final book of The Eton Boys Trilogy. Our hero, Rowan Battencliffe has not been much of a hero at all in the previous books – in fact, Macnamara set herself up to climb a very steep hill to redeem this fella. Having said that, it is safe to say none of the men in The Eton Boys Trilogy were born with a hero’s hat upon his head. Getting them to that point is more than a struggle for our lovely heroines...
