Description

"Sparkling"—Independent on Sunday "A literary bubble bath...Take a delightful and frothy dip among the gayer aspects of the author's favorite and well worked Regency period."—Sunday Tribune Almost an heiress Country—bred, spirited Kitty Charings is on the brink of inheriting a fortune from her eccentric guardian — provided that she marries one of his grand–nephews. Kitty has spent her secluded life pining for the handsome, rakish Jack, who is well aware of her attachment. A plan of her own But when Jack fails to respond to his great–uncle's ultimatum, Kitty hatches a strategy of her own — a counterfeit betrothal to mild–mannered Freddy Standen (who neither needs nor wants the money). A most unlikely hero And when Kitty's generous heart leads to all sorts of unintended troubles, there is only one man who can rescue her from more than one dreadful fix, pick up the pieces of her plotting and in the process her heart... "Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances." — Amazon.co.uk

About the Author

Georgette Heyer

The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success. Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.
