Description

One of readers favorites, Frederica is full of surprises When Frederica brings her younger siblings to London determined to secure a brilliant marriage for her beautiful sister, she seeks out their distant cousin the Marquis of Alverstoke. Lovely, competent, and refreshingly straightforward, Frederica makes such a strong impression that to his own amazement, the Marquis agrees to help launch them all into society. Lord Alverstoke cant resist wanting to help her Normally wary of his family, which includes two overbearing sisters and innumerable favor-seekers, Lord Alverstoke does his best to keep his distance. But with his enterprising - and altogether entertaining - country cousins getting into one scrape after another right on his doorstep, before he knows it the Marquis finds himself dangerously embroiled... WHAT READERS SAY: "A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds." - Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph "Stylish, witty, and bang up to the mark!" - Punch "One of Georgette Heyer's more adorable heroines." - Saturday Review "Classic Heyer—the author at her best!" "Not only do the characters seize your heart from the first moment, they are three dimensional and so alive. It is just wonderful!" "What a great book. One of my favourites, as the most beautiful is not the heroine." "Witty, enchanting, and impossible to put down. This is one of Heyer's best works and one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read." "A wonderfully written witty tale of the downfall of a cynic. I was charmed."

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.
