Have enjoyed Georgette Heyer's Regency romances since high school in the '70's.

One of the few authors I collect, as I enjoy reading her books again and again, over time. Clever, sometimes suble dialogue, engaging charactors who you actually care about - her books are classics.

One of the few authors I collect, as I enjoy reading her books again and again, over time. Clever, sometimes suble dialogue, engaging charactors who you actually care about - her books are classics.
Written when romance WAS romance, not thinly disguised lust and soft porn. I've read more "modern" authors, but no one even comes close.

The Unknown Ajax is a unapologetic man's man who verbally tweaks the nose of the stuck-up relatives he's come to see. He doesn't let the opinions of others bother him a bit, and finds humor in the whole situation. The love he meets is at first resistant to the pressure brought to bear on her to marry him, but as she comes to know him, she realizes he's tender and reliable, and unsure of her heart. Is he too good to be true?

I love Georgette Heyer. I have made my way through all but three of her books now and this one I have to say is not one of her better works. The female lead leaves much to be desired and although the story should have worked well since the plot was very orignal, it almost seemed at times to be a chore to get through the book. If you are a Heyer fan, definitely give it a try, but don't expect it to live up to some of her other works. And if you would like to try Heyer, don't make this your first choice since it doesn't even come close to representing the brilliance of her work. On a positive side, as with all Heyer books, it was a clean and humorous love story and her detail of the era really helps you to feel like you are there.

    Flower's Capture Chapter Four by Violet

    Violet snapped a few pictures with her new Nixon camera that she got for her birthday. "Hmmm, what's that?" she thought as she picked up a bracelet with a note on it. She looked around, and two other notes were on the ground a little farther ahead. She looked up after picking up the last note, visibly the newest, and a strange whirring sound broke the sweet silence of the forest. There was a girl that looked exactly like her! This girl did not seem to see her, and the girl glanced around confidently and clicked her tongue. Dahlia and Mari were there! "Hey guys!" She called out. Suddenly Mari's eyes turned red. "Target has spoken," a robotic voice laid under Mari's real voice said. The girl that looked like her smiled. "Well, now Violet you are coming with us." Violet wanted to retort but her voice was gone. That girl had stolen her voice! Mari and Dahlia advanced on her with rope. Dahlia wrenched Violet's wrists together and tied them while Mari did the same with her feet. Violet squirmed but to no avail. These... things as she decided to call them pulled a large scratchy bag over her head and tied the opening closed. Violet was slung onto a back and a rough journey began as she blacked out from the... chloroform?

    WHAT'S WITH THE INFO ON THE ORDER PAGE?

    Georgette Heyer, mistress of the regency romance, always is entertaining. But the page has information on an entirely different book, about a doctor and it's suppossed to be a Christian something or other. Please review the page and reform.
