With any other hero, I might consider this the best of Heyer As it was, I was torn between hating Lord Worth and being swept up in the story.Judith Taverner and her younger, sillier brother Peregrine have been recently orphaned, and with spirited curiosity they decide to seek out their new guardian, the high handed Lord Worth They are quite surprised to learn he is a young, hands
The one where our heroine and her silly brother discover, upon their father s death, that their new guardian is the sardonic Lord Worth And then everyone gets into social scrapes.Almost, but decidedly no The heroine here is almost my favorite kind of Heyer girl witty, perceptive, cleverer than the men who are supposed to be her betters except for how she s ultimately an idiot so that the hero can explain the entire plot to her And the hero

4.5I didn t expect a book with this title you have to admit it doesn t sound very promising to be this lovely and wonderful If I were hard pressed to describe Regency Buck in only a couple of words, then Heyer s livelier,colourful andhumorous version of Pride and Prejudice would have to do There are so many things I loved here A bond between siblings both Judith and Peregrine and Lord Worth and his brother was always something a reader could rely on Peregrine s immaturity was 4.5I didn t expect a b
3.5 stars Reread for the January group read for the Georgette Heyer Fans group on GR We are attempting to read all of Ms Heyer s Regencies in the order in which they were written This is 1 first published in 1935 eep And yes, it is a little dated.This was never one of my top favourite Heyers, and this reread confirmed that I first devoured all of her books as an uncritical teen, but these days I read them with acritical and a

One of Heyer s earliest novels, and it appears that she attempted to write in Austen s style, with an awkward result that is almost painful at times After this, she began developing her own distinctive style, mixing Regency era slang with twenties Bright Young Thing cadences.The hero in this one is one of her Brutal Guys I loathed him in this book, though I like him much better in An Infamous Army But this one had a lot of details about Regency life that were enjoyable, at least when I first One of Heyer s earliest novels, and it
