Read full description of the books:
I know I was supposed to love this. But.....
The characters were enough to drive a saint batty.
Cardross was an idiot. How can he except his wife to know he loves her if he never tells her and when anything comes up he immediately assumes the worst about her? And let me not leave his wife out of the blame, Nell was a goose for not telling Cardross the whole truth from the beginning, I really don't know how she planned to explain herself the deeper she went. But she was sweet, and so I did like her.
Then we have the abominable Letty, oh she was awful. Almost, but not quite, a Tiffany Wield. Spoiled rotten. Couldn't abide her. Dysart was Nell's reckless brother, he was probably the most amusing character, if a trifle daft. But even he didn't live up to my expectations.
Sadly, these characters just were not Rule, Horry, Pelham and Rupert. This was no new and improved The Convenient Marriage, but a rehashing with duller characters. I missed Horry's witty remarks and Rule's dry humor and Pelham's helpful monkeying. While reading that I couldn't stop laughing, while reading this I didn't laugh once. I did smile at the end, but I guess I'm just disappointed I didn't find this more humorous. And that this Was supposedly about Nell and Cardross , but they never felt like a true couple to me. Did they even go anywhere together in this book? I don't recall. He never seemed to do anything with her, she was just like a pet, feed her, clothe her and pamper her. But heaven forbid you let her know you love her! She has to guess by your kind acts towards her family. Bah! Heyer has done better couples in my humble opinion.
Now to admit it: I never intended to like this more than The Convenient Marriage, and I didn't.
G a few swears, a past mistress and nothing else.

Read information about the authorGeorgette Heyer was a prolific historical romance and detective fiction novelist. Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth.
In 1925 she married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and he often provided basic plot outlines for her thrillers. Beginning in 1932, Heyer released one romance novel and one thriller each year.
Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity. She made no appearances, never gave an interview and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. She sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stella Martin.
Her Regencies were inspired by Jane Austen, but unlike Austen, who wrote about and for the times in which she lived, Heyer was forced to include copious information about the period so that her readers would understand the setting. While some critics thought her novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyer's greatest asset.
Heyer remains a popular and much-loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.
