Cross-Posted on The Dead Writers Society. This will be the one that ends up as my go to recommendation for people who are starting out with Heyer.

Faro's Daughter is a delight to read -- once you put aside the niggling nudges of common sense at the back of your head, and the desire to smack the protagonists' heads together. A healthy suspension of disbelief is a natural necessity upon venturing into the world of the Regency Romance, but especi...

I suppose its fitting that what I've deemed "the year of Georgette Heyer" ends with a Heyer, and what a fantastic one to end on! Nothing gets me more than a good Heyer hero.

This is not my favorite Georgette Heyer because the Hero is such a selfish clod but it is still a good fun read.
