Young Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible great-uncle Matthew - provided she marries one of her cousins. Kitty is not wholly adverse to the plan, if the right nephew proposes. Unfortunately, Kitty has set her heart on Jack Westruther, a confirmed rake, who seems to have no inclination to marry her anytime soon. In an effort to make Jack jealous, and to see a little more of the world than her isolated life on her great-uncle's estate has afforded her, Kitty devises a plan. She convinces yet another of her cousins, the honorable Freddy Standen, to pretend to be engaged to her. Her plan would bring her to London on a visit to Freddy's family and (hopefully) render the elusive Mr. Westruther madly jealous. Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances.

Cotillion is here presented in Naxos AudioBooks style, with classical music enhancing the production. This is the first of two Heyer titles planned for 2009. Clare Wille was widely praised for her reading of Cranford. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Barbara Mader | 2/19/2014

    " First book I've read by Georgette Heyer, whose work was recommended by several on the Maud list. The beginning felt slow to me, but I persevered, and in the end I enjoyed this book quite a lot. In one of the characters there was a touch of P.G. Wodehouse's Bertie, and I just loved it. "

    " Not for feminists. Good thing I have outgrown my feminism phase. The heroine is utterly flawed at doing anything for herself! But, I really liked it. "

    " Great narrator and a delightful story. Not as pointed as Austen but with some of the same appeal. I always like a story where the heroine thinks she's in love with someone and then discovers she's really in love with her long-time friend. So predictable yet so satisfying! "

    " Heyer is a brilliant storyteller and a very skilled writer, weaving clever tales filled with characters so well sketched that she has yet to be surpassed. While The Grand Sophy seems to be very popular among readers, Cotillion, A Convenient Marriage, and The Corinthian are my favourites. "
