Not that he was unkind to her. She has plenty of money which she can spend however she wishes, ... Read review

Beauty and the Beast

AdvantagesWonderful characters, great plot, well-written, good view of upper-class society in Regency times

DisadvantagesMight take a little while to get used to the Regency language

"Venetia is one of my all-time favourite literary heroines. Twenty-five years old, in Regency England, she was brought up in Yorkshire by a reclusive father who rarely lets her out of the locality. Not that he was unkind to her.

She runs the household too, and ..." Read review

Product Information for "Venetia - Georgette Heyer" »

Manufacturer's product description

In all her twenty-five years, lovely Venetia Lanyon has never been further than Harrogate, nor enjoyed the attentions of any but her two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then, in one extraordinary encounter, she meets a neighbour she only knows by reputation - the infamous Lord Damerel - and before she knows better, is egging on a libertine whose way of life has scandalised the North Riding for years. About the AuthorAuthor 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.
