Love or license? Fidelity or freedom? Hard choices for a willful young beauty in an age of romantic extravagance.

THE KNOWING BRIDE — When dazzling Horatia Winwood married the powerful Earl of Rule, she was saving her sister from a loveless match, rescuing her family fortune, and providing herself with a life of ease. Hers was a marriage not made in heaven but in the coolly logical mind of a very self-possessed young beauty.

Not until Horatia was deep in dangerous intrigue with her husband's vengeful rival, the dashing and arrogant Lord Lethbridge, did she suddenly find -- to her own tumultuous surprise -- she had fallen in love with the man she had married for money. But was it too late, now that she was but a heartbeat away from betraying both him and herself?

4.5 The Convenient Marriage
There are so many things I loved about The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer, but there are a few little hiccoughs that held this one back from being a sparkling gem like, say, Venetia. (Love, love, love Venetia!!). I'm not sure when I enjoyed reading a first meeting between two principals, H...

3.0 a bit of a let-down
This was my first Georgette Heyer, to which I was irresistibly drawn by the fact that it's an audiobook read by Richard (Thornton Guisborne Thorin) Armitage. Also: Georgette Heyer. All I've ever heard about her is how wonderful her books are, the epitome of their genre, not to be missed. I feel let...
