Meet the Author

Georgette Heyer (16 August 1902 – 4 July 1974) was a British historical romance and detective fiction novelist. Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth. In 1925 Heyer married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer. The couple spent several years living in Tanganyika and Macedonia before returning to England in 1929. After her novel These Old Shades became popular despite its release during the General Strike, Heyer determined that publicity was not necessary for good sales. For the rest of her life, she refused to grant interviews, telling a friend: “My private life concerns no one but myself and my family.”

    A rare find! Georgette Heyer did not like The Great Roxhythe he

    A rare find!
    Georgette Heyer did not like The Great Roxhythe herself but her father thought it was one of her best works - I agree with her father. This is a very engaging book set during the reign of Charles II. While Roxhythe is a fictional character he moves in a thoroughly researched setting during this reign. It is what I call a 'meaty' book that is quite distinct from the author's lighter novels.
    Second hand copies are selling as high as $200.00 so purchasing a new digital copy for 9.99 is an excellent way to go. I recommend this book. I've read this book from my library and am looking forward to receiving my own digital copy from B&N.
