A wonderfully witty and entertaining Regency romance by one of the best-known and most beloved historical novelists of all time.
In all her twenty-five years, lovely Venetia Lanyon has never been further than Harrogate, nor enjoyed the attentions of any but her two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then, in one extraordinary encounter, she meets a neighbour she only knows by reputation - the infamous Lord Damerel - and before she knows better, is egging on a libertine whose way of life has scandalised the North Riding for years.
Yet again Georgette Heyer shows the qualities that made her one of the most successful and best-loved romantic novelists of her age, and why her popularity endures to this day.

I like this one. It’s wickedly funny in places and very sweet in others. While I can say that in general I have problems with the rake motif, in this particular instance I felt like the personalities worked. Anyway, it makes me happy. [Oct. 2009] Read full review
