Book Description

1 Jan 2004

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. But unfortunately for them, he is also the Fifth Earl of Worth, a friend of the Regent and, quite by chance, their legal guardian ...

Delightfully witty and romantic, Regency Buck shows all the skills which made Georgette Heyer the most widely read and loved author of historical romances in the world, and which have made another generation fall in love with her all over again.

Review

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

"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)

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

Book Description

From one of the best-loved and best-known historical novelists, Regency Buck is a delightful game of cat-and-mouse between two orphans and their guardian.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Regency novel! 20 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have read all of Georgette Heyer's books, and Regency Buck remains my favorite -- after a few dozen readings! The mysterious plot, the wonderful dialogue, the splendid Regency settings, the chemistry between the impulsive heroine and the sardonic hero -- all these add up to a Regency masterpiece and the ultimate rainy night comfort read!

5.0 out of 5 stars My absolute favourite! 9 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
I just wanted to add my praise for this book as it is my absolute favourite. I have read all of Georgette Heyers regency novels and adore them all but this has to be the best. Judith Tavener is a strong, likeable heroine who can hold her own against the, at-first, thoroughly dislikable Lord Worth. The way the two of them fight and argue throughout the book, yet the whole time you can see their feelings for each other growing is one of things I love most about it. Add to that the wonderful characters (I particularly like Beau Brummel being in this one), interesting story-line; no mere love story is this, there is so much about how Judith makes it in society, fiendish plots to see her brother killed, horse races down to Brighton, dinner parties at the Pavilion etc etc, not to mention (although I would hate to spoil the book for other readers I think it must be pretty obvious!) a wonderful ending, and it's no wonder that so many people fall in love with it.

I can't count the number of times I have read it but I enjoy it every single time! A must-read for anyone who likes Georgette Heyer and also for anyone who likes a good story with a nice bit of romance thrown in.

PS. Just wanted to add that anyone who enjoys Georgette Heyer may wish to try an author called Clare Darcy. She is generally held to be Heyer's successor and I find her books similar but utterly charming. I would recommend "Lydia" and "Elyza" in particular. For something more modern, I think Katie Fforde is a great writer, portraying modern independent women finding good old-fashioned romantic heroes to love, not without some bumps along the way though!

Format:Paperback
There are already eleven reviews of this book, so why am I writing a twelfth? Simply because I am longing to tell someone how much I love it. Having re-read almost all my Heyer novels I picked this up for a third reading, and had doubts about whether or not I would enjoy it again so soon. After all, I knew the ending and remembered much of the plot. How wrong I was! I wasn't far into the book before I was hooked again, seeing things which I hadn't recalled from the previous two readings and feeling bereft when I came to the end.

There is so much in this book: comedy of manners, witty conversations, kindness and courage, suspense, humour, romance, descriptions of people and places - I could go on. I was a little uneasy about the characterisation of real people, such as Beau Brummell and the Prince Regent, but despite my misgivings I am still giving it five stars.

The story starts with Judith Taverner, and her brother Sir Peregrine, travelling to London to meet their guardian and establish themselves there. On the way they stop at Grantham, and we are introduced to a few characters who re-appear in London. On arrival at the Metropolis they meet their guardian and set up house, not without some entertaining moments. Judith launches into society and Peregrine tries to find his feet. (One of the things I love about GH books is the way that siblings usually get along well, and these two are no exception.) What happens next is the subject of the book, and I won't spoil it by saying any more about the plot.

To compare it to her other works is difficult, as all her books have slightly different emphases as well as similarities.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only the Earl of Worth existed in real life! 17 Oct 2005
Format:Paperback
This (along with Venetia and Sylvester) is my favourite Georgette Heyer novel. Lord Worth is intelligent, mysterious, masterful and damned sexy. The heroine, Miss Taverner, although beautiful, is frank and contrary. Sparks are bound to fly, especially when she discovers that she and her brother have been made his wards. it only gets worse when Worth and Miss Taverner's cousin, Bernard, make known their dislike of each other. Miss Taverner attributes it to mere jealousy, or is it?
The tension is palpable between Judith and Lord Worth, especially when she discovers someone has been trying to murder her brother...and Worth always seems to have had a hand in it...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Geoergette Heyer bk ever 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I truly enjoy G.H.'s books. This is my alltime favourite. I have read it over and over. The characters are endearing, the conversation witty. The storyline is almost inconsequential but plausible and carries the characters through. Our heroine is sensible (usually), refined, and bright. Of course she gets frustrated by the hero's interfering ways but after all he is a regency buck, but he's more than that when you delve into his reasons for all. A story that ranks up there with Pride and Prejudice as far as I'm concerned, although admittedly lighter reading. A romance classic

5.0 out of 5 stars One of her best 21 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine are rather shocked to discovertheir guardian is not, in fact, their father's friend the fourth Earl ofWorth, but his dashing son, the fifth Earl of Worth. The Earl is no lesssurprised than they, particularly as he has been flirting outrageouslywith his pretty young ward. Thus begins another humorous, entertainingand romantic Regency romp by Georgette Heyer. I am a great fan of herwork and used to scour second-hand book shops for them when they were outof print. This is one of my favourites. It is full of the typical twistsand turns, both wards managing to get themselves into scrapes that theymust then be rescued from. It is also very romantic with the Earlstruggling between his emotions and his duty.
