5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 22 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Lady Of Quality (Paperback)
After a while it becomes difficult to find new things to say about a review of a Heyer novel. Ostensibly these are all the same. This is the stuff that classic romance novels are made of, appealing woman meets appealing man, they fall in love although neither know it at the time, a series of misunderstandings ensues, they end the book realising how much they love each other and all is well.
This is the formula for every Heyer romance, but don't let this put you off. Her wonderful way with words, her attention to detail, her sense of humour and the ridiculous scrapes she embroils her characters in, makes each book a joy and a delight in its own right. It doesn't matter that you know the plot. It matters that you know that Heyer will weave her uniquely brilliant magic on every page and have you enthralled to the last despite everything.
This is one of the Heyer novels in which we get a feisty, strong heroine to match a rakehell hero whom nobody can tame. Annis is fantastic, and a great, independent woman who despite her fatal weakness for a naughty boy (and who can blame her?!) retains her dignity and loveliness to the last.
