"A wonderful entertaining biography--a readable and lively account of this beloved writer."--Eloisa James, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Required reading for all lovers of Regency novels."--Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author of No Longer a Gentleman "A superb portrayal of one of my all-time favorite writers."--Anne Gracie, award-winning author of Bride By Mistake "An engaging, intriguing, absorbing, read!"--Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times bestselling author Who was the real Georgette Heyer? Georgette Heyer famously said, "I am to be found in my work." Who was this amazing writer who was so secretive about her personal life that she never gave an interview? Where did she get her ideas? Were there real-life models for her ultra-manly heroes, independent-minded heroines, irascible guardians, and clever villains? What motivated her to build a Regency world so intricately researched that readers want to escape there again and again? Heyer's Regency romances, historical novels, and mysteries have surprised and delighted millions of readers for decades, while the woman behind the stories has stayed hidden...Until now! With unprecedented, exclusive access to Heyer's notebooks, papers, and early letters, Jennifer Kloester uncovers both the complex life of a private woman and a masterful writer's craft that will forever resonate in literature and beyond. Praise for Georgette Heyer's Regency World: "Meticulously researched yet splendidly entertaining ... a must-have."--Publishers Weekly Starred Review "Detailed, informative, impressively researched. A Heyer lover writing for Heyer fans."--Times Literary Supplement "Kloester's lively book will delight died-in-the-wool Regency readers." --Booklistshow more
