of Regency BuckI have, recently, in a Georgette Heyer forum here on GR briefly addressed the perplexing nature of the hatred Lord Worth gets in comparison with other Heyer heroes and Judith too in

Move In The Highest Social Circles, Lord Worth Cannot Help But Entangle Himself With His Adventuresome Wards The one where our heroine and her silly brother discover, upon their father s death, that their new guardian is the sardonic Lord Worth And then everyone gets into social scrapes.Almost, but decidedly no The heroine here is almost my favorite kind of Heyer girl witty, perceptive, cleverer than the men who are supposed to be her betters except for how she s ultimately an idiot so that the hero can explain the entire plot to her And the hero Almost my favorite sort of Heyer man dry, sarc

Is it kind to just do what you want and not think about how what you do effects others No, no and No That said, in the beginning and end I liked Judith, but in the middle I just wanted her to grow up

all of her books as an uncritical teen, but these days I read them with acritical and analytical eye And now I see that the probable reason I never liked this one as much is because there s actually very little romance in it Yes the rocky relationship between Worth and Judith runs right through the book, with a bold but brief kiss very near the beginning But basically, it s a mystery story front

spite of all the criticism I have read about this novel, this is my favorite Heyer read so far for several reasons The descriptions of the life and times in Regency England are very detailed and are a pleasure to read The story features so many characters who were actually a part of history, such as Beau Brummell, the Du 4.5 twinkling, sparkling stars In my early days on the internet I was excited
