Product Description


"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to" (Katie Fforde)

"My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours" (Margaret Drabble)

"A writer of great wit and style - I've read her books to ragged shreds" (Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph)

"Sparkling" (Independent on Sunday)

"Georgette Heyer is unbeatable" (India Knight)

5.0 out of 5 stars An adventure story you can't put down. 6 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Not your typical Heyer, the romance is almost a sub-plot, an excuse to tell of the outrageous behaviour of Mad Nick, an Elizabethan pirate whose exploits have you on the edge of your seat. This is more exciting than any movie; your eyes will sparkle and your hands will grip the pages as you frantically try to keep up with the laughing pirate who leads you on the most daring trek through Spain. Heyer excells herself with a book that will appeal to many outside her usual audience: give this to your men.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling romance 27 Nov 2007
Great yarn - absolutely not in the usual Regency style but still very much worth your while.

Set in Elizabethan times, Sir Nicholas Beauvallet is on a par with Francis Drake and other famous Elizabethan sea faring adventurers. This is an exciting story, much of it set in Madrid at the height of the Spanish Inquisition. Younger son and heir Sir Nicholas and his ship capture a Spanish galleon and its treasure includes the beautiful Domenica di Rada Y Silva and her seriously ill father. Nicholas returns them to Spain at great personal danger but vows to return to woo the lady in style. Most of the story centres around his mad adventures in this attempt to keep his promise and you will not be dissappointed - it's action packed romance.

Although I am a massive Heyer fan, this book takes a little while to get fully into. Beauvallet is certainly a character like no other, possibly because this book is Elizabethan, whilst her others tend to be Regency. There is a lot of adventure of the swashbuckling type in it, but the characters talk out loud to themselves, which is possibly something more in line with a play rather than a novel, so it may be that Heyer was trying to emulate Shakespeare in the writing of this book. Some of the dialogue is in keeping with the era "Oddstooth" and suchlike. Saying that, better to read a "bad" Heyer, as it still compares with the "best" of some other authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book 10 July 2012
I am a fan of all Georgette Heyer's regency novels, but this one is set in Elizabethan times. The historical detail is as accurate as the regency and the characters well written. Mad Nicholas is a heroic mariner to the English and a heretical pirate to the Spanish. However after falling in love with a Spaniard he journeys into Spain to win her hand. Dominica is one of the more spirited Heyer heroines. I have read this book many many times and it is still an exciting adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Georgette Heyer - Beauvallet 17 Jan 2012
By Wenchis
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a replacement for an old book I have which I've read many times and the pages were a bit tattered to say the least! It's great that they have republished all the Georgette Heyer novels as I feel none of the more recent writers of Regency novels captures the era as well as she does.

I have just added this book to my collection, but have not read it yet. If it is of Georgette Heyer's usual standard it will be a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avast Behind!
Not Heyer at her best, but a swashbuckling love story nonetheless. The final third of the book is the best when the pace picks up and there are plenty of threats and escapes. Read more
