Shipment to continental US and Canadian addresses only. Anne Stuart Such a daring escape?
His interest was a dimwitted, damsel in distress and their courtship palled in comparison to the slow burning, banter filled friendship and then romantic attachment of Pru and Anthony. I loved so many of the scenes in this book, but particularly the interactions between Prue and Robin. I’ll keep her safe. Stephen Fry recommended this one to a friend of mine ….

Join 6, other followers Search for: Heyer was very big on keeping things as accurate as she could, and with the speech of Prudence and Robin’s time being nearly years out of date, it can be quite confusing at times. On the way to London, they rescue a damsel in distress, Letty Grayson, a rather silly young girl who thought it would be romantic to elope to Gretna Green; too bad she chose to run away with the villain.

The Masqueraders (Historical Romances): Georgette Heyer: : Books
Tony, I can’t marry you! I read this as a group read with the Georgette Heyer group. It is a picturesque and engaging story. But once committed to their masquerade, they must see it through. I eventually learned to like Sir Anthony for his weight. I haven’t read it for quite georgeette few years, and I’d forgotten almost all of it, so it was almost like a new read.
Hilarious and enjoyable, particularly all the jibes masqueraxers Robin’s height and his ability to flirt Most unusual of all in this book, though, is Sir Anthony. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I like the switching of genders.

I wondered when I saw her masquersders wine down her arm at my card party, I confess. Her Georgian and Regencies romances were inspired by Jane Austen.
Definitely my two favorite characters! Thanks for the georgetye. I love the brother and sister’s relationship and the real historical details. This sounds great too.
This masquerade becomes complicated once the siblings met Sir Anthony and Leticia, an heiress. I can see why, as it’s a really fun, exciting, pacy but undemanding read.
It also took me a while to get used to the Georgian-style dialogue, with all the egads, alacks and other slang terms of the period.

I reread this today—the back cover has come off of my Fawcett edition. I admit that I have reread those first chapter about fifty times, and even though I now know who is who it is still very confusing.
You are commenting using your WordPress. This is one of my favorite Mssqueraders. I first read this book when I was 12 or 13 years old. Heyer fumbles the opening a little, I think.
The scene between the father and Markham is amazing — sophisticated verbal parrying. Plus if one loves history with their stories, she brings it!

And that habit of his of calling the latter “the mammoth” or “the mountain”!!!! Notify me of heyed comments via email. Lovely review, I am just becoming acquainted with Georgette Heyers books. Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity.
