A novel set in Regency London and Brighton. It is in regrettable circumstances that beautiful Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine first encounter Julian St. John Audley. The man, they both agree, is an insufferably arrogant dandy.

In describing regency places, habits, and costumes, Heyer always does astoundingly well - but this is the most descriptive regency novel I have ever read (and I've read many). Heyer’s first trip into the Regency period was with Regency Buck in 1935 and 75 years later, it is still one of the best boo...
