The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. It is known that she was born in Wimbledon in August 1902, and her first novel, The Black Moth, was published in 1921. Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known also as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and they had one son together, Richard.

I don't think that I've enjoyed a Heyer ending more, and that's saying a lot since they're all good. Black Sheep is now one of my all time favorites and even though I've just finished it I think I might have to read it again. It's that good." - Blog Critics " I finished the book feeling the complete satisfaction that only a good read can leave you with." - Once Upon a Bookshelf "This will not be my last Georgette Heyer novel. I look forward to reading some of her other books, but Black Sheep has definitely found its way onto my keeper-shelf." - Queue My Review "Hope never dies in a Georgette Heyer novel, and love is always triumphant." - Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society
