Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

-Publishers Weekly

Rank, wealth, and elegance are no match for a young lady who writes novels...

Sylvester, Duke of Salford, has exacting requirements for a bride. Then he meets Phoebe Marlow, a young lady with literary aspirations, and suddenly life becomes very complicated. She meets none of his criteria, and even worse, she has written a novel that is sweeping through the ton and causing all kinds of gossip... and he's the main character

What Readers Say:

A truly brilliant Heyer with an adorable and very real heroine and a hero who is very human

One of Heyer's most unsung achievements, a classic Pride and Prejudice story. Hilarity and adventure throughout.

The hero may be my all-time favorite. He is so drily funny it takes your breath away. What a wonderful love story.

Hilariously funny, romantic, even touching in a subtle way.

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:

This is Heyer's only romance novel to feature a female writer in the Regency world where a young lady didn't usually have those aspirations.

Sylvester, Duke of Salford, falls in love with a feisty young lady who wants nothing to do with him and aspires to be a writer-in fact she has written a scandalous novel that portrays him as the villain. Then a ballroom encounter launches a real scandal...

Frothy, readable, and full of delightful Regency dialogue. -Library Journal

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