Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

The Corinthian - Georgette Heyer Imagine my surprise, and my delight seeing this in the "New Books" section of the library. I was already picking up two other Heyers (Cousin Kate and A Civil Contract) but this was one I had been dying to read. Richard Wyndham is one of my favorite Heyer heroes! I think I just really like the heroes that are paired with outrageous heroines like Pen (who I think would be best friends with Amanda from Sprig Muslin!). That calm yet laughing inside hero that takes care of everything just takes my heart away.I rather enjoyed this plot more than I do most Heyers, I like the added bit of danger, rarely does she include any actual real dangers in her novels (unless you count social dangers...) The thief, the murder, the scandal! In also love it when she writes everything so muddled, everyone and everything is just in a complete twist! Perhaps that's what I see sadly lacking in more recent regency romances.
