The time is an imaginary future, one and a half millennia after the collapse of our own civilisation.
Nicholas Raspero, the descendant of the Barons of Raspero and the possessor of wandlore secrets, has arrived in New Landern, the capital of Anglashia. Almost immediately he is drawn into the underworld when he defeats a group of thugs who attempt to rob him, thus making him an enemy of Jolly, the most powerful gangster in the city. Jolly therefore recruits Angela Ashton, the lovely actress, to act as bait for a trap he has set for Nicholas Raspero. Meanwhile, Nicholas has set his heart on Isabel Grangeshield of Grangeshield House - the wealthiest, most beautiful heiress in New Landern and the most obstinate.
For lovers of steampunk and fantasy, The Last Suitor will have you cheering for Nicholas Raspero, the wand-fighting hero, and wishing that you too could transport to the world of New Landern, where everyone who has a wand is not afraid to use it in a duel to maintain one's honour.
