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 Convenient Marriage

The Convenient Marriage - Georgette Heyer This has so much plot for a Heyer! I say that with affection, but I don't really associate adventure and plotting with Heyer. But oh my god this one was full of it! And Horatia! I'm positively in love with her, such a capable, competent heroine is not easily found in regency romance. Horatia was able to save herself, and I became quite fond of her stammer though it sort of annoyed me at first.And Lord Rule! He may have exceeded my love for Mr. Beaumaris (Arabella). I can't explain how much I love Rule, he was just so funny and took everything in stride but was certainly angry when it mattered.It seems the more Heyer I read the better she gets! Another must read!
