When young, plain Horatia Winwood informs the Earl of Rule that her beautiful older sister, Lizzie, doesn't want to marry him and offers herself instead, the Earl, surprised and intrigued by the spirited, unconventional Horry, agrees, setting the stage for a romp rife with misadventure, jealousy, plots, duels, and romance. The Convenient Marriage, a 1934 Georgian jewel (set in the 1770s), is a fan favorite.
When the jaded Marquis of Alverstoke reluctantly agrees to sponsor Frederica Merriville's beautiful young sister, Charis, for a London season, he has no idea how much the irrepressible Merriville family (all five of them) will change his life-or that Frederica will be the one to win his heart. Overflowing with fun and family, this warm, joyful 1965 Regency is one of Heyer's later novels and another popular title.
