The best GH,
This review is from: The Unknown Ajax (Kindle Edition)
The other 5 star reviews have said it all. This is far and away my favourite of GH's books - and I enjoy most of them. There is a quality to this book though, that makes it stand head and shoulders above all those formulaic Regency Romances that proliferate nowadays. The plot, the characters, the historical detail, the situation... they are all pretty d*mn perfect.
One of the things that I love about Heyer's writing is that her supporting characters are all so attractive - not necessarily likeable, and sometimes the Gaumless Fops and the Smelling Salt Mamas are a bit repetitive, but they ALWAYS have the redeeming feature that we can laugh affectionately at them. Even the Arch Rivals have flashes of honesty and honour.
Can't recommend this book enough.
