Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My favourite historical novelist.-Margaret Drabble

Sparkling.-Independent on Sunday

A sham betrothal isn't the only thing that gets Kitty and Freddy into trouble, but it's definitely the beginning ..

A most unusual hero

Freddy is immensely rich, of course, and not bad-looking, but he's mild-mannered, a bit hapless-not anything like his virile, handsome, rakish cousin Jack ...

A heroine in a difficult situation

Young Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible and eccentric guardian-provided she marries one of his great-nephews ...

A sham betrothal

No sooner does Kitty arrive in London then the race for her hand begins, but between confirmed rakes and bumbling affections, Kitty needs a daring scheme ...

Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances.

-Amazon.co.uk

Triumphantly good ... Georgette Heyer is unbeatable.

-Sunday Telegraph

Synopsis:

Known as the Queen of the Regency Romance, Georgette Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, and her extraordinary plots and characters. This classic tale follows two distant cousins as they head for London, where a series of hilarious mishaps ensue.

Sparkling.-Independent on Sunday

A sham betrothal isn't the only thing that gets Kitty and Freddy into trouble, but it's definitely the beginning...

When the incomparable Miss Milbourne spurns the impetuous Lord Sherington's marriage proposal (she laughs at him-laughs ) he vows to marry the next female he encounters, who happens to be the young, penniless Miss Hero Wantage, who has adored him all her life. Whisking her off to London, Sherry discovers there is no end to the scrapes his young, green bride can get into, and she discovers the excitement and glamorous social scene of the ton. Not until a deep misunderstanding erupts and Sherry almost loses his bride, does he plumb the depths of his own heart, and surprises himself with the love he finds there.

Sparkling.-Independent on Sunday

A sham betrothal isn't the only thing that gets Kitty and Freddy into trouble, but it's definitely the beginning?

Freddy is a most unusual hero. He's immensely rich, of course, and not bad-looking, especially with his ultra-starched shirt points and elegant quizzing glass. He gets engaged to his cousin Kitty only to help her get away from their irascible Great-uncle Matthew. The two head for London, where a series of hilarious mishaps threaten their charade. But Freddy discovers hitherto unplumbed depths of cleverness and practicality beneath his dandyish exterior, and Kitty discovers that the rake she was in love with can't hold a candle to her Freddy. He sets every mishap and adventure to rights in the end, surprising all (especially himself) and winning his heart's desire.

Cotillion could be the best of the Heyer books. I would have said differently when I was young and romantic. But this one has it all - humor and fashion and true love. No rough diamond, no pre-marital war. Just fun.
