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!

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.

I am slowly trying to get through all of Heyer's regency novels, and this one is BY FAR my favourite. This book has everything, the romance, the mystery, characters that you totally buy into and actually end up caring for. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it.

Judith Taverner and her brother Sir Peregrine are travelling to London in search of the man their deceased father has made gaurdian over them, and along the way meet two gentlemen; one prefectly aimiable,who turns out to be their cousin, and the other, not so aimiable in Judith's opinion, turns out to be their legal gaurdian. You'll adore the sparring that goes on between Judith and the irresitable Julian Audley, Earl of Worth, and we all know from he begininng that he's fallen for her (although, typical man, not going to show it), and that they are perfect for one another. A couple more chaps turn up as prospective suitors to Judith, her cousin, Mr Taverner(who you'll be questioning from the moment you meet him), and you'll be screaming out at each one to leave her alone because she's destined for Lord Worth, even if his younger brother Charles Audley is as delicious as he is, and wears regimentals.

The plot thickens and twists at the end, thanks to Peregrine, but as usual, while Judith is panicking, Lord Worth has it all under control. The ending is lovely, and so completely what it should be, you'll read it over and over, savouring every word that comes from Lord Worth's lips, and swooning at most of them. Girls, what else can we ask for? There is nothing like disappearing into a Heyer novel, and thoroughly enjoying it, and secretly wishing we were the heroine being romanced by the dashing hero at the end. A fantastic read. You won't regret buying this book.
