The adventuress

At first, Emily Goodenough and her father, Sir George, are exactly what the servants at No. 67 Clarges Street are hoping for: respectable tenants to usher in an uneventful Season. But all is not what it seems and it's not long before Rainbird the butler uncovers their secret: Sir George is an ex-butler and his 'daughter' a runaway chambermaid! Rainbird's resolve is tested, however, when he learns of villainous Sir Edward Kirby's plot to unmask the pair and force his attentions on Emily

Description

At first, Emily Goodenough and her father, Sir George, are exactly what the servants at 67 Clarges Street are hoping for: respectable tenants to usher in a successful Season. But all is not what it seems...as it transpires that 'Sir George' and his 'daughter' are successful con artists! But the servants' resolve to unmask the pair is tested when they uncover a plot by the villainous Sir Edward Kirby to force his unwanted attentions on Emily. So the staff join forces in a scheme to transform the Goodenoughs into society's darlings, foil Sir Edward...and snare the man of Emily's dreams in the bargain.
