A Poached Peerage by Sir William Magnay

this is fun, with an interesting set of characters. mr popkiss, distracted by having to watch his daughter and her admirers (making sure they dont climb into her window) receives a note that scotland yard is looking for someone who is on his way to the popkiss inn. just then the colonel and his two daughters arrive, letting him know that the newly succeeded lord quorn has arrived from australia and will be entertained in the quorn family home, which the colonel has been renting until now. perhaps he will be got to marry one of the colonels daughters (one of them already tricked a drunk man into proposing to her). but who exactly is the new lord quorn? :)
