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
Editors Note "Lively, amusing ... done to a turn!" - Kirkus Reviews A fateful mistake... When Elinor Rochdale boards the wrong coach, she ends up not at her prospective employer's home but at the estate of Eustace Cheviot, a dissipated and ruined young man on the verge of death. A momentous decision... His cousin, Mr Ned Carlyon, persuades Elinor to marry Eustace as a simple business arrangement. By morning, Elinor is a rich widow, but finds herself embroiled with an international spy ring, housebreakers, uninvited guests, and murder. And Mr Carlyon won't let her leave ... WHAT READERS SAY ABOUT THE RELUCTANT WIDOW: "Delightful and purely entertaining. The plot involves comedy, intrigue, espionage, cloaks and daggers, and things going bump in the night - served with a sauce of witty repartee that is the Heyer hallmark. Unforgettable." "One of my favorites!" "A delightfully funny and mysterious romp." "Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen." - Publisher's Weekly
