Fascinating reading...authentic atmosphere in a delightful Enlgish tale

-Chicago Sunday Tribune

Less than a hero's welcome...

Returning to his family seat from Waterloo, Gervase Frant, seventh Earl of St Erth, could have expected more enthusiasm for his homecoming. His quiet cousin, stepmother, and young half-brother seem openly disappointed that he survived the wars. And when he begins to fall for his half-brother's sweetheart, his chilly reception goes from unfriendly to positively murderous.

One of Heyer's most suspenseful Regency romances, The Quiet Gentleman combines an ingenious mystery plot with her signature witty style and effervescently engaging characters.

What Readers Say:

A must read. You will love the quirky characters, the great suspense plot, and the incredible wit.

A breath of fresh air... Heyer's witty dialog, engaging and sparkling characters, and humorous repartee make this an engaging and wonderful read.

One of my favourites; it is a mystery as well as a lighthearted comedy of manners.

Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty novels, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. She was known as the Queen of Regency romance, and was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, and her extraordinary plots and characterizations.

Synopsis:

Georgette Heyer wrote a dozen mysteries, but included a Gothic element in only two of her Regency romances-Cousin Kate and The Quiet Gentleman. Upon his return from Waterloo, Gervase Frant expected a hero's welcome-instead he's given a frigid cold shoulder. But when he begins to fall for his half-brother's sweetheart, his chilly reception goes from unfriendly to murderous as Gervase finds himself in several life-threatening accidents. Justice is swift, and love wins the day.

Fascinating reading...authentic atmosphere in a delightful English tale.
