Description

“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.

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.
