Read full description of the books:
One of my very least favorite Georgette Heyer novels, sorry. It has too many annoying elements:
*one of those very young, impetuous, immature heroines I dislike so much, with a stammer that is written out Every.Single.Time
*lots of frantic, farcical running around
* an evil mistress (of the hero! Ugh!) and a dastardly villain
*a hero who's twice the age of the heroine
Also, romances where one of the main characters is committing adultery, regardless of the circumstances (here it's that they've agreed in advance to a marriage of pure convenience), always have a huge strike against them in my book. To be fair, this story is more of a comedy than a romance, but still.
Anyway, it all adds up to way too many things I found dislikeable about this novel. Frankly, I skimmed through most of it.
Who knew a marriage of convenience story could be so boring?

Read information about the authorGeorgette Heyer was a prolific historical romance and detective fiction novelist. Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth.
In 1925 she married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and he often provided basic plot outlines for her thrillers. Beginning in 1932, Heyer released one romance novel and one thriller each year.
Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity. She made no appearances, never gave an interview and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. She sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stella Martin.
Her Regencies were inspired by Jane Austen, but unlike Austen, who wrote about and for the times in which she lived, Heyer was forced to include copious information about the period so that her readers would understand the setting. While some critics thought her novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyer's greatest asset.
Heyer remains a popular and much-loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.
