He had nothing to recommend him but his smile, and she was surely too old, and had too much commonsense, to be beguiled by a smile...

Miss Abigail Wendover's efforts to detach her spirited niece Fanny from a plausible fortune-hunter are complicated by the arrival in Bath of Miles Caverleigh. The black sheep of his family, a cynical, outrageous care-for-naught with a scandalous past - that would be a connection more shocking even than Fanny's unwise liaison with his nephew!

But Abbey, adept at managing her sweet, silly sister Selina, her lively niece, and the host of her admirers among Bath's circumscribed society, has less success in managing her own unruly heart... Download and start listening now!

    " Just re-read this. I had forgotten how much I liked Miles Calverleigh. Upped my review to 5 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talietha | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoy her unconventional heroes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/24/2014

    " Delightful though predictable. Utterly charming. Though I'd never heard of this author before, I can see why she is compared with Jane Austen. Though she is certainly not as good of a writer as Austen, Georgette Heyer is just as good a story-teller. Loved the ending of this novel and look forward to reading another by Heyer in the future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/22/2014

    " I'm excited to discover this author- thanks Merry! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/22/2014

    " Not my favorite hero - being indifferent to your family is a virtue? Heyer is always readable though and its was enjoyable enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tishke | 1/20/2014

    " I enjoyed this book very much. Like most Heyer's books, it has an amazing plot and beautifully written characters who are incredibly entertaining.. I never suspected the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 laninaki | 1/15/2014

    " Miles Caverleigh made me laugh out loud throughout the whole book. I loved him! Fun read, not as melodramatic as some of Heyer's other works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 12/13/2013

    " Light gothic romance fiction, among my Mom's favorites. Considerably better than the average gothic romance. Some of them are more like historical fiction, such as Simon the Coldheart. I read them from time to time when I was growing up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ros | 11/21/2013

    " Full of Heyer's Regency jargon, this novel is full of memorable characters and one of those I-know-what's-going-to-happen plots which nevertheless entertains throughout the telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth (the one who is) | 11/15/2013

    " Listened to it on Audio again..really awesome book ! If you like Jane Austen you'll like Georgette Heyer ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 11/4/2013

    " Plenty of good banter. I like that Heyer often has "older" heroines - Abby is in her late twenties. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 10/25/2013

    " One of my favorite Heyer couples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audra | 10/4/2013

    " Maybe I should give this book five stars. The characters are great, the story is great. It's just a fun read. If you like Jane Austen, then you really should read this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 8/27/2013

    " I picked this one up because everyone claims the author to be "Austenesque," and it was! I loved the witty humor and interesting characters. The book flew along at a clipping pace a lot more than Jane Austen's books. I will definitely be looking into more of her novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samm | 8/24/2013

    " It's always nice to see a character go through a reformation. Miles Caverleigh and Abigail Wendover went through a lot of changes, some more subtle than others. It made the plot and characters quite enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 6/30/2013

    " I may have a new favorite Heyer hero! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikala | 4/23/2013

    " I really like this book, although only after my second attempt to read it, the first time I found it slightly boring however the second time I picked it up, found I rather enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey | 2/12/2013

    " Re-read in 2012. Miles Calverleigh is awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindig | 8/10/2012

    " as usual, witty, clever, educational "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trine | 6/1/2012

    " After a long pause in reading GH I found this one and thought I would give it a go. I loved it, and hasn't stopped reading GH since. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larchip | 5/23/2012

    " I did like this book but Faro's daughter was more fun in my opinion. Plan to read more of hers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 10/2/2011

    " A dear friend just gave me a first US edition of this book, and a first of Lady of Quality, as well as copies of The Tollgate and Bath Tangle. What a great excuse for rereadings! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Editt | 5/10/2011

    " I loved the love story but I also enjoyed the family relationships as well. At 28, Abby is considered on the shelf but she does not let label determine how she dresses and acts. One of Georgette Heyer's books I would love to own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adriane | 5/5/2011

    " Fairly decent story - but the ending totally bugged me. I literally ended mid conversation. I actually checked online to see if my copy was just missing a page at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy | 4/12/2011

    " I'm on a bit if a Georgette Heyer kick at the moment, and this is one of my favorites. The characters are unconventional, and the dialogue is witty and fast paced. An enjoyable read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 3/7/2011

    " This was so much fun I read it through twice, back to back! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshlyn | 2/16/2011

    " Ah those naughty totally predictable, black sheep. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mimi | 2/8/2011

    " This reminded me why I like her so much. I'll dig out some of my old copies and reread them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalya | 1/25/2011

    " It was fun(like all of Heyer's novels) but A. the ending was lame. B. the lead guy has few morals(even though he was hilarious and does have some good characteristics,he fails)C. Heyer acts as if this lack of morals,is the *better* way to live. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shabby Girl | 1/25/2011

    " An underated book by Heyer, which I just love. Love the banter, love the hero, he makes me laugh. Lovely sensible heroine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talietha | 1/2/2011

    " I enjoy her unconventional heroes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madalina | 11/28/2010

    " This book, a little in the seeming of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, is of the same idear. It presents two heirs of a bad-reputed family and the truth regarding that reputation attached to each of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/21/2010

    " This one was fun. Classic Heyer (with a little too much sickbed again!), with an unexpectedly rumpled and mannerless hero, and a charming and intelligent heroine. I particularly liked how the hero got rid of the villain--inspired and unexpected. "
