About the Author

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, who made the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Although most famous for her historical novels, she also wrote eleven detective stories. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.


When young, plain Horatia Winwood informs the Earl of Rule that her beautiful older sister, Lizzie, doesn't want to marry him and offers herself instead, the Earl, surprised and intrigued by the spirited, unconventional Horry, agrees, setting the stage for a romp rife with misadventure, jealousy, plots, duels, and romance. The Convenient Marriage, a 1934 Georgian jewel (set in the 1770s), is a fan favorite. When the jaded Marquis of Alverstoke reluctantly agrees to sponsor Frederica Merriville's beautiful young sister, Charis, for a London season, he has no idea how much the irrepressible Merriville family (all five of them) will change his life-or that Frederica will be the one to win his heart. Overflowing with fun and family, this warm, joyful 1965 Regency is one of Heyer's later novels and another popular title. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
