Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An altogether unsatisfactory arrangement

After their father's death, Miss Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine travel to London to meet their guardian, Lord Worth, expecting an elderly gentleman. To their surprise and utter disgust, their guardian is not much older than they are, doesn't want the office of guardian any more than they want him, and is determined to thwart all their interests and return them to the country.

With altogether too many complications

But when Miss Taverner and Peregrine begin to move in the highest social circles, Lord Worth cannot help but entangle himself with his adventuresome wards...

WHAT REVIEWERS SAY ABOUT REGENCY BUCK:

Clever

Library Journal

Georgette Heyer is unbeatable.

Sunday Telegraph

Light and frothy, in the vein of the author's other Regency novels, this follows the fortunes of Miss Judith Taverner and her brother, Sir Peregrine. A good introduction to Heyer's period stories...

The Booklist

Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.

Publishers Weekly

WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT REGENCY BUCK

A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds

Katie Fenton, Daily Telegraph

The conversation sparkles, the characters are real, and the descriptions stand before you. Can't miss it.

It makes you believe in love all over again.

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire too.

Katie Fforde

Wholly captivating

I have read all of Georgette Heyer's books, and Regency Buck remains my favorite--after a few dozen readings The mysterious plot, the wonderful dialogue, the splendid Regency settings, the chemistry between the impulsive heroine and the sardonic hero--all these add up to a Regency masterpiece and the ultimate rainy night comfort read

Georgette Heyer has no equal when it comes to that wonderful brand of Regency fun and laughter. Her research is so true to that age I feel as though I am riding in Hyde Park with the characters, or on the battlefield at Waterloo, Regency Buck lead me to read An Infamous Army and many of her other wonderful books.

Synopsis:

In Heyer's latest Regency novel, beautiful Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine, find Julian St. John Audley, the Fifth Earl of Worth, to be an arrogant, insufferable dandy. Unfortunately for them he is also, quite by chance, their legal guardian.

Synopsis:

Miss Judith Worth and her brother are disgusted with their guardian, who seems to want nothing to do with them. But when Miss Taverner begins to move in the highest circles of society, Lord Worth can't help but pay attention...
