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.

"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) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    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.
