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

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
