Author Info
Georgette Heyer
The author of more than 60 romance and mystery novels, Georgette Heyer has been credited by some as the first person to write the type of historical romance novel now known as a "regency-era romance." Heyer is well-known for her providing very accurate historical settings in her books and for incorporating authentic regency-era slang into her dialogue.
From the Publisher
Annotation A rakish Marquis is reformed by the love of a good woman in this regency-era romance.
Editors Note Devil's Cub is another of readers', booksellers', and librarians' favorite Georgette Heyers. In this acclaimed followup to These Old Shades, Dominic Alastair, fiery son of the Duke of Avon, is forced to flee England after a duel. He intends to take and set up as his mistress the young lady whose attentions he's been courting, but her virtuous sister Mary gets in his way and finds herself carried off to France instead. Discovering that he has met his match when she shoots him in the arm to protect her virtue, Dominic tries to persuade Mary to marry him, but she'll have none of it. A chase ensues that in the end embroils the Duke of Avon himself and his passionate and impetuous wife, Leonie, who is forced to admit that Mary might just be the best thing in the world for her beloved son. PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER: "Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit." Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC "Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen." Publishers Weekly "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." Katie Fforde
