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

'The greatest writer who ever lived' Antonia Fraser
'[My] generation's Julia Quinn' Adjoa Andoh, star of Bridgerton
'A rollicking good read that will be of particular joy to Bridgerton viewers ... the permanent glister of scandal [...] ties the whole thing together' Indepdendent
'Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' Joanne Harris
_______________

In all her twenty-five years, Venetia Lanyon has never been further than Harrogate.

Nor has she enjoyed the attentions of any man aside from her two wearisomely persistent suitors.

Then, in one extraordinary encounter, she meets a neighbour she only knew by reputation - the infamous Jasper Damerel.

Before she realises it, Venetia is encouraging a man whose way of life has scandalised the North Riding for years.

I owe her many happy hours" -- Margaret Drabble "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic" -- Katie Fforde "A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds" -- Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph
