The plot moves pretty quickly and though it’s predictable, you can’t help reading with anticipation to see how things are worked out. So, Arabella Heeyer has finally told the truth to Mr. The hero is more mature but like the heroine, torn between his love of amusement and his conscience.
See all reviews. I will definitely check out more of Georgette Heyer’s books. Because that’s how I feel historicals should be well, not really, there are definitely historicals nowadays that I read that include all the nitty gritty not so pure, mature scenes which I don’t mind reading, but again, different style, and different narration which I usually approve of and don’t mind. Robert allowed the warmth to enveloped his whole being and mind as his pending orgasm ripped through his body like a burning hot knife.
And he knows that Mr. Not to mention, this is a pure romance, not unsightly mature scenes for those who don’t love those kinds of scenesalways ends in a proposal and a kiss.
This time this is the edition I read!
I liked Arabella’s brother Bertram, who really was well done. She has a precise knowledge and understanding of the Regency Era, and has a way with the language and slang of that era, georgethe well. I especially enjoyed the early scenes of Arabella’s home life and the teasing chatter, squabbles and commiserations shared by Arabella and her siblings.
Of her elder sisters, she was gifted with the body of their mother with a slender, petite build and fair complexion. But for all the pretence, she is pretty conscientious though at one point she is ready to feed the conscience laudanum just for the sake of her brother and is very clear on what her duty to her family is and what she actually desires. I love goodhearted females who get into scrapes. He’s slightly jaded but not an out-an-out rakehe’s a bit world weary but not cynicaland most important of all, he’s got a dry sense of humor, especially when it comes to his fashion sense in dandelion boutineers and conversations with canine mutts just read the book and you’ll see what I mean about the last two!
Bertram’s subplot is a bit tedious. Guest review by Kara Louise of Delightful Diversions. Arabella overhears his words and pretends to be an heiress without thinking about the consequences of her statement. Believing that beauty and charm alone would eventually pall on him, he is looking for something more in the woman he marries, though he has never yet found it and doesn’t even know what georvette would be. It was Robert her fiance.
The gentlemen promise to keep mum but Lord Fleetwood, a sad rattle, spreads the word throughout the ton. The youngest of eight children born penniless to a vicarage father and a former season catch mother. This sounds like a little white lie that snowballs into a madcap adventure… Looking forward to reading this one!
IMO, Beumaris resembles a bit to Heher, and Arabella a la Lizzy also overhears something disagreable, but due to her naivete she reminds me more to Catherine Morland. To Arabella Tallant, the eldest arabells of a penniless country clergyman, the invitation to stay with her London godmother was like the key to heaven, for in addition to living in the glamorous heyr, Arabella might even find a suitable husband there.
And read it a 3rd time.
The other thing that really interested me is that there are clearly some conventions that started with Heyer, like the hero who is very sophisticated and puts the dandies to shame with his elegant black clothing.
If you love Jane Austen, while Heyer does not compare on the same literary level by literary I mean classic-study-in-school-literaryshe does write a fun and lovable romance set in the same kind of similar world a little after Austen’s time if I’m not wrong with characters that bespeak the same speech etc.
This sets in motion her very eventful and successful Season in Town. View all 7 comments. It sounded like heavy panting mixed with small groans that sounded like someone was hurt.

You will not be disappointed in my cook, let me tell you!! Taking a small turn in the maze, she heard something that caught her attention. Robert reached out with a lighting fast hand and grabbed ahold of her upper arm gently, but with a firm grip. Ah, to have a London Season and go shopping in Bond Street, entertain callers all morning and be sought-after by all the gazetted fortune hunters for miles around!
Arabella was my second Heyer novel. Instead, she has to complicate things georhette becoming a fraud, and it’s only because Beaumaris finds it amusing and decides to play the Big Joke of the Decade on the foolish aristocrats and fops of the ton by lending credibility to her lies, thus protecting her with his reputation, that she’s not exposed or ridiculed or humiliated. I think Heyer did! Heyer cleverly uses what would soon become the social causes of the era. Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in Satisfied georgeette he managed to catch her with redden cheeks, he motioned the general area.
I realize now that Heyer formed my impressions of both the Regency period and Regencies. I didn’t even mind georrgette brother’s troubles that much. She’s young and naive, but she’s not overtly silly and helpless although Heyer yeorgette it with all her blushing. She opened the door and turn towards him with a shy smile on her lips. There are so many things I loved in this book. One of my five Heyer favorites! Looking up at her, he slowly lifted her skirts inch by inch, waiting for her protest of what he was doing.
