I am coming to Heyer in the opposite way, after reading countless romances, including many Regencies. Frederica is the first book I have read by Georgette. After reading Frederica I thanked my lucky stars that Georgette Heyer was such a prolific writer and that she lived a long life. She wrote over The orphaned Frederica has arrived in London in the hopes of . If you read no other novel by Georgette Heyer, it should probably be this one.

One of the reasons I’ve never read one is because the covers are old-fashioned and fusty. And again, even though many of the characters and situations are familiar from other GHs, each also has unique features. I’m afraid I’m going to gush all over this review, but I’ll do my best to keep this coherent. Arabella the cynic and the spirited vicar’s girl Venetia older black sheep falls for charming country girl Sylvester cold “dook” falls for plain “sparrow” The Convenient Marriage old rake falls for young wife The Corinthian a runaway, an escapade, a robbery The Spanish Bride Harry and his spitfire vs Napoleon Faro’s Daughter.
To take care of her. And if anyone complains about a spoiler alert, then they’ve clearly never read a romance before.
It doesn’t get postponed, but Felix grabs one of the ropes in an attempt to ride in the balloon and succeeds, of coursebut unfortunately when it lands in the country, they hit a tree and Felix falls unconscious, breaks a few ribs and contracts a rheumatic fever, which forces him to stay at a local farm for a few weeks, where Alverstoke and Frederica take turns nursing him, and fall madly in love with each other.
Woman’s Brothers get into trouble, Rich Man ends up helping them out, and somewhere in the process, the Young Woman falls in love with him, somewhat to her own surprise but not at all to the reader’s.

October 12, Publication Date: Woman’s Brothers get into trouble, The Heyer binge continues, but either my stamina is flagging, or this one just wasn’t as much to my taste. But when they are introduced to London society by the Marquis of Alverstoke, they find themselves both besieged by more suitors than they can possibly handle!
Well written, witty and warm, I certainly do recommend it to all Heyer fans. The children are not the stock, two-dimensional figures that often appear in romances, but are actually well-drawn beings with believable motivations. Regency, London, mostly, with a few forays here and there-ish Length: Georgettd mushroom who sought to use glamour to influence him, or gain his interest, was quite another.
Charis, georgetet a natural beauty and Frederica is sure she could make a georgwtte better match in London than the country.
Aug 11, Katie rated it it was amazing. She is old cattish. Vernon, the Marquis of Alverstoke, is a rich bachelor, age 37, the only son, pampered from infancy but raised in aloof austerity. The Marquis was irritatingly perfect, and it did feel like Heyer indulged her fantasies of perfection just a little bit much with him. Stunningly beatiful, sweet tempered, but not to bright Charis, whose loving heart can’t bear to rebuff anyone, even as she can’t think of anything clever to say.
I have begun to buy and read them freverica over again. This is the third Georgette Heyer book I’ve read this summer, and I’m so glad I still have more than 30 of her Regency romances left to enjoy.
It could have been a thrilling science fiction as well. Frederica is a great heroine. She discovered love like I think its supposed to be, without the “his heyfr cheast” and “her fair lips” mumbo-jumbo thrown into most romance books. Humorous and very cleverly written,this was a very entertaining read,one which I heartily recommend!
Gy is legendary in our house as “that book with the dog,” my husband ought to tell that story, as it’s his but I love the book for how thoroughly the Marquis of Alverstoke is drawn into the Merriville family, entirely against his will. He would loooooooove it! From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
It was far more entertaining than the other Heyer audiobook I’ve been listening to, The Unknown Ajaxwhich is probably due to the reader. We don’t know exactly what heye to everyone.
And I don’t like books that toss kids in to make a plot or add ‘humor’ but in this book it felt natural and fun. So many great moments, I think Nicole hit on them all. But this time, I have to say that it is not the Hero and Heroine that make this frederia so fun, it’s Felix, Frederica’s youngest brother.
Alverstoke finds himself oddly intrigued by Frederica, and he decides to hold a cone-out ball for his nieces after all. Hdyer suppose that is what I am! I have all her non-mystery books.
Frederica (novel) – Wikipedia
This one was rife with responsibilities which I don’t have issue with, but the conversations between Alverstoke and Fr Charming and delightful regency romance. Something fun, pleasant, and just plain loveable. There are plenty of secondary and tertiary characters who’s lives the reader is catapulted in to over and over again.
