I was delighted to find this georgette heyer title on kindle.I have read all the regency novels by georgette but i think this is her best ,It centres on Leonie [ who is captivating throughout ] who has been switched at birth from an aristocratic family to a poor one ] She is rescued from the back streets of Paris by the Duke of Avon [another great character ] and we witness her emergence into high society and her blossoming romance with the Duke of Avon.I have read this book so many times because i love it and i never get tired of reading it.I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes historical romances

I love this story I first read it in 1970s, it is full of action, I have to read every single word unlike some books where I skip pages. This story is extremely different set in a period when men were quite ridiculous, dressed in fancy colourful clothes, powered their hair and faces, gambled and had affairs. It has an exciting plot and you are gripped by suspense wondering whatever is going to happen next. This story has a more fulfilling conclusion than GHs other books.

A real old favourite
Have not read any Georgette Heyer for a long time and when I saw this knew I wanted to reacquaint myself with these tales this is the first one I have reread and it's wonderful and I am hooked, Have just finished reading this and I am now going to read some more of the books
The story is as witty and as fresh as when I first read it years ago

I love all Georgette Heyer stories but this is truly the best. A true romance with her special touch of humour. From the first to the last page a pure delight.

I loved this book when I was young and I loved it just as much this time round. I will inevitably read it again.

Lovely to re-read an old favourite. A real feel for regency life and good humour shine through. A truly old fashioned romance
