Product description

New York Times Bestseller!"Sophy sets everything right for her desperate family in one of Georgette Heyer's most popular Regency romances."When Lady Ombersley agrees to take in her young niece, no one expects Sophy, who sweeps in and immediately takes the ton by storm. Sophy discovers that her aunt's family is in desperate need of her talent for setting everything right: Ceclia is in love with a poet, Charles has tyrannical tendencies that are being aggravated by his grim fiancee, her uncle is of no use at all, and the younger children are in desperate need of some fun and freedom. By the time she's done, Sophy has commandeered Charles's horses, his household, and finally, his heart.

Author information

The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. It is known that she was born in Wimbledon in August 1902, and her first novel, The Black Moth, was published in 1921. Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known also as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and they had one son together, Richard.

Review quote

"Georgette Heyer was known as the "Queen of the Regency romances," and deservedly so... The characters are unique, and the conversations are enjoyable and witty." - Lesa's Book Critiques

Flap copy

When Sophy goes to stay with her cousins in Berkeley Square, she finds them in a sad tangle of affairs - some romantic and others of a more pecuniary nature. Perhaps the Grand Sophy has arrived just in time to save them.
