    Set in the Regency period, this is a classic tale of misunderstood love and an arranged marriage.

    Story

    This is one of my favorite Georgette Heyer novels. The author, as usual, creates a host of vivid characters: Lord Linton is a man of integity and duty, his father-in-law is bigger than life (you can love and dislike him at the same time), and Jenny is a wonderfully complex heroine. The romance is entrancing (there is more than one involvement going on); however, the main love story is different from most Heyer novels. Heyer took the time writing this to let a relly good story unfold. I was engrossed throughout the presentatin and did not want to stop even to eat (which means it was REALLY interesting) or to sleep. The reader was perfect for the book. I thought she did a partcularly good job with the Jenny character - her chuckle/laugh was delightful. This is a solid 5 in my opinion.
