Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. But, he is very amused by Frederica and sees an excellent opportunity to royally piss off his sisters, so he agrees and let the drama begin!
It felt a bit like a history lesson, in the best possible way. This is one of my top three Heyer titles, and the audio narration by Frdderica Norgate is just spot on. Alverstoke is aristocratic bored jaded man, and his change it adorable a This was just a fun story with Heyer’s trademarks shatter throughout.
Heyer slowly develops relationships, and her style is subtle. Could I have guessed at that point how indispensable the works of Georgette Heyer would become in my life? Huh yes, I think so! Soon he realizes that there is nothing boring, ordinary or deceitful about the Merrivilles.

We meet Lord Alverstoke, a nonpareil and Corinthian of the first order, at a time when he is beset by his two sisters to help them introduce their daughters to Society in a proper and extravagant manner. Not exactly standard fare for a romance novel. First of all, what kind of house is this??? I know the Georgette Heyer book I want to read, but I can’t remember the title.
Then, even though it’s mainly to enrage his sisters, Alverstoke gives The Ball, aka a splendish party thrown in his ballroom at Alverstoke House, in order to present Frederjca and Frederica to the Ton while it looks like he’s presenting his niece Jane and his cousin Chloe.

Gforgette is a delightful and charming novel!
Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I adored Frederica and the Marquis sniping at one another to keep each other from boredom or despair or any other emotion that wasn’t joy or delight at seeing one another. Even if he is described as selfish, cynical and overall not very pleasant person, he is never dishonest with Frederica.
The guy calls it a “Baluchistan Hound”. Here’s the deal, at least it was apparent to me, this guy is bored of everything. The Marquis would normally toss off such poor relations, but when he meets them he’s charmed despite himself and impressed by the gorgeous young Charis.
She may georgettf be full on gorgeous and it’s her smarts that make Alvertoke fall in love with her. The Heyer binge continues, but either my stamina is flagging, or this one just wasn’t as much to my taste.

Anyway, this story was more about watching Alverstoke become a pillar on which Frederica leaned than a romance.
But then, he doesn’t just launch them all into the Ton. Well, as smoothly as it can. And though I I’m doing a lifetime reading challenge, and I chose this book for my book because it was also on a number of “best ever romance novels” lists. He relies on his secretary, Mr. Heyer remains a popular and much-loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.
