If you love Bridgerton, you'll love Georgette Heyer!

'The greatest writer who ever lived'
ANTONIA FRASER
'A rollicking good read that will be of particular joy to Bridgerton viewers ... the permanent glister of scandal [...] ties the whole thing together' INDEPENDENT
'My generation's Julia Quinn' ADJOA ANDOH, star of Bridgerton
__________________________

The only question which hangs over the life of Sir Richard Wyndham, notable whip, dandy and Corinthian, is one of marriage.


Wyndham is contemplating his upcoming proposal with considerable dismay, when he chances upon a beautiful young fugitive, Penelope, making a dramatic exit from her home. Impressed, intrigued, and a little worse for drink, he decides to help Penelope flee.

What follows is a shockingly perilous advantage - one which might just provide Sir Richard with his own opportunity to escape . . .

“I love Georgette Heyer”

First thing to say is that this copy is a replacment for my old copy-which is battered beyond repair-so I think that shows my enduring love for Georette Heyer!
I've enjoyed her stories for more years than I care... More
