Description

_______________________
'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' Joanne Harris
_______________________
Annis Wychwood delights in her independence.

Beautiful, rich and far too busy for love, she has turned down the advances of many a hopeful suitor.

But when she becomes entangled in the affairs of a runaway heiress, she encounters the girl's guardian, the notorious Oliver Carleton.

While Oliver may be a reckless and uncivil rogue, Annis can't help but be drawn towards his wild ways . . .

'Rapturously romantic' Katie Fforde

Review quote

"Sparkling" Independent "Georgette Heyer is unbeatable" -- India Knight "My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours." -- Margaret Drabble "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." -- Katie Fforde "A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds." -- Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph
