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.

Reviews

Sourcebooks is reprinting a number of Heyer's classic historical and Regency romances in trade format and plans to have 21 of her 40-plus novels in print by mid-2009. A lovely young spinster is both charmed and infuriated by the wealthy, unconventional black sheep uncle of the fortune hunter on whom her young niece has her heart set. This character-driven novel (1966) is considered one of Heyer's best. In Faro's Daughter, Deb Grantham, a beautiful, well-bred young woman working in her aunt's exclusive gaming salon, turns the tables on an arrogant aristocrat who jumps to all the wrong conclusions as he sets out to rescue his besotted young nephew from Deb's nonexistent schemes. First published in 1941. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
