Description

"Georgette Heyer is the Queen of the Regency Romance. Long may she reign!" --New York Timesbestselling author LAUREN WILLIG

Deliciously feisty and exuberant, Arabella Tallant is one of Georgette Heyer's most memorable and engaging heroines

Daughter of a modest country clergyman, Arabella Tallant is on her way to London when her carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy Mr. Robert Beaumaris. Her pride stung when she overhears a remark of her host's, Arabella pretends to be an heiress, a pretense that deeply amuses the jaded Beau. To counter her white lie, Beaumaris launches her into high society and thereby subjects her to all kinds of fortune hunters and other embarrassments.

When compassionate Arabella rescues such unfortunate creatures as a mistreated chimney sweep and a mixed-breed mongrel,she foists them upon Beaumaris, who finds he rather enjoys the role of rescuer and is soon given the opportunity to prove his worth in the person of Arabella's impetuous young brother...

PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER:

"Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit." Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

"Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen." Publishers Weekly

"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to." Katie Fforde

display_description When Arabella Tallant meets Robert Beaumaris, an arrogant bachelor, she is horrified when he accuses her of being just another in a long line of women who are interested in him only for his money. Determined to save face, Arabella tells a lie--declaring that the last thing she needs is a rich husband because she happens to be an heiress herself. When word of Arabella's "wealth" leaks out, she finds herself pursued by every fortune hunter in London--but has Arabella's lie cost her her one chance at true love?
