    Georgette Heyer(Author)
Affairs of honour between bucks and blades, rakes and rascals; and affairs of the heart between heirs and orphans, beauties and bachelors; romance, intrigue, escapades and duels at dawn: all the gallantry, villainy and elegance of the age that Georgette Heyer has so triumphantly made her own are exquisitely revived in these eleven stories of the Regency.

Georgette Heyer's historical accuracy and eye for a wonderful story of romance is unequalled, and in Pistols For Two we can see the skills which won her a devoted audience that continues to this day.

"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to" (Katie Fforde)"My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours" (Margaret Drabble)"A writer of great wit and style - I've read her books to ragged shreds" (Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph)"Every girl, whatever her age, needs her own complete set of Heyer titles. More than romantic they are witty, elegant, stylish and the best comedies of manners since Jane Austen. Required reading for everyone" (Diane Pearson)"Georgette Heyer is unbeatable" (India Knight)

    A thoroughly delightful book. All the right characteristics for a lighthearted romance . The perfect loving husband trying to woo his very young wife. A love smitten bride who has been told not to mind her husbands mistress, but to expect good manner and courtesy from him. Then all the misunderstandings coming from this. Bring in a flighty sister who dares to do anything she believes OK to get her own way and it adds to the mix. The scene where the Brides brother and his inebriated friend try to steal her hackney carriage had me laughing for ages. I have now read this book so often I know it by heart and I still laugh! Excellent.

    The plot was drawn out which made the book seem long and slow. It contained too much of non meaningful details of the period. Didn't enjoy it as much as some of her other books.

    I love most of Heyer's books, especially the later ones that are set in the Regency period, and I particularly like her humour and attention to detail.

    I am a huge fan of Georgette Heyer & wasn't disappointed with this short story collection. At first I felt reading through the stories they were kind of blurring into one so maybe best advice is read a few then go back to it at a later date.Some of the stories weren't as good as others but some were brilliant.Its a must for any Georgette Heyer collector like myself.
