He descends on the town on the look-out for a likely heiress, and quickly makes a conquest of Fanny Wendover, a dazzling, high-spirited orphan of seventeen.Fannys aunt, Abigail, knowing Stacys reputation, determines to put a stop to this affair, but the arrival on the scene of Stacys uncle, Miles - the Black Sheep - does nothing to advance her plans.Black Sheep is one of Miss Heyers lighter-hearted romances, with a charming heroine and a most intriguing hero - mysterious, good-humoured, cynical, outrageous and in the end irresistible.
