Overview

The Toll-Gate by Georgette Heyer

On his 38th birthday, lonely Scott Williams fervently wished for a wife and family, but he never expected to become so utterly captivated by the beautiful, yet troubled Jennifer St. James. She was everything he'd ever wanted in a woman--and he knew she'd be the perfect mother of his future children. But sad memories of her past still shadowed Jennifer's heart. Turning to God, Scott vowed to help heal Jennifer's broken spirit--and offered her his unconditional love.

About the Author

The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.

Like most of Georgette Heyer's works, it's sheer enjoyment from beginning to end. Although this one is a bit of a thriller, it still has her hallmark wholesome romance (no sex, just love) and delicious tongue-in-cheek comedy. Her books are light but not shallow, and infused with the author's immense intelligence without being "intellectual." Thorough historical research bases, as always, her deft escapist writing and clever plots with their likable characters.

So good I ve always thought this would make a great movie. As much mystery as romance, classy and funny I highly recommend it.

Like all Georgette Heyer's books it is witty and very well written. I love all her books.

Very few romance books hold my attention well enough for me to read word for word. Rather, I tend to skim. Georgette Heyer creates delicious nuances in every conversation that delight me and sets up entertaining situations. Toll-gate is one of her more memorable books for me. This is my second reading and it still delights.

While I’ve already read all of Georgia Heyer’s Regency Romances, they’re all REALLY worth reading again and again. I’ve never found any books that come anywhere near them for pure escapist enjoyment!
