I really enjoyed this one! Some parts I disliked.. but mostly I really really liked it! I especially loved the Sense and Sensibility reference! ;)

This was Georgette Heyer's first Regency romance and it's easy to tell. There's a ton of description in this book, almost too much at points (I skimmed the Royal Pavilion section a lot). However, it made me like the book even more because it felt so real. Everything the characters did was spot on for the time period, such as the various parties and balls, going somewhere for Christmas, going to Brighton in the spring, etc. Peregrine is kind of young and annoying, but Judith is a great character. I wish the romance had been developed a little bit more. We only get a few pages at the end where they admit they like each other. It's not my favourite Georgette Heyer novel, but definitely recommended if you like historical fiction that takes place around the same time as Jane Austen's novels.

Overall, the novel was well written (almost all of Heyer's are). However, I did force myself to power through certain parts such as the things about chicken fights but the novel was pleasant to read.

Liked this one, it's wasn't as short as some of her other work and there was a bit more to it than a regency romance. Assassination attempts and a very rich heiress.

I liked it, but I would have enjoyed a bit more banter from the two main characters and less cock-fight and boxing descriptions.

“What is your name?"
"Again sir, that is no concern of yours."
"A mystery," he said. "I shall have to call you Clorinda."
