An impetuous young lady and a fugitive nobleman?

When spirited Eustacie stumbles into a band of smugglers, she is delighted to be having an adventure at last. Their leader, young heir Ludovic Lavenham, is in hiding, falsely accused of murder. Pursued by the law, Eustacie and Ludovic find refuge at an unassuming country inn.

And the delightfully sensible couple who try to keep them out of trouble...

The resourceful Miss Sarah Thane and the clear-thinking Sir Tristram Shield gamely endeavor to prevent Ludovic's arrest and Eustacie's ruin as the four conspire to recover the missing talisman ring that will clear Ludovic's name.

5.0 The Talisman Ring
A re-read of one of my favorite Heyer's. I like the combination of humor, mystery and a little bit of danger. This is all sparkly wit, great plotting and enjoyable characters.

How annoying were Eustacie and Ludovic? I cared so little about their fate and mostly did not find them amusing. I know they are a parody of young romantics and serve as a foil for the older and more sensible couple, but I really wanted Ludovic to get slapped at certain points where he insists on re...
