Your review compels me to reread this book. This bit of xrabella, meant only for the gentlemen, unfortunately follows Arabella to London, georgettte she becomes one of the most sought after ladies in town. I had read many, many romances before I read even one of hers, but I can recognize an original when I see it. In any case, these minor critiques do not detract from the fact that nobody has ever written Regency romance as well as Georgette Heyer does, and Arabella is a delicious case in point.

More or Less a Marchioness. I love the way the plot goes;its one of my favorite themes! Arabella is appalled and retaliates by fabricating a story that she is The Miss Tallant, heir to a great fortune, and is tired of all the men who seek her out. I didn’t even mind the brother’s troubles that much. This is why I love goodreads: If another can top it, then I’m excited to find it, gforgette I faced the exquisite quandry of wanting to find out what happened at the end, and conversely never wanting it to end.

His new dependents include a climbing boy, a mongrel who enslaves most of his staff including his very temperamental French chef, and arbaella Arabella had had her way, a helpful whore named Leaky Peg. We read it AGES ago!!! Once again, I am amazed at Georgette Heyer’s ability to make me laugh out loud – her books are so much fun – dialogue, characters, plotlines, etc. What better way to show your love for the heroine than to quietly set things right.
