Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. The recent drowning of his eldest son has done nothing to improve his temper. For now he must send for the unknown offspring of the uncle whom the family are never permitted to mention. Yet none of that beleaguered family are prepared for the arrival of the weaver's brat and heir apparent.

    " The Unknown Ajax by Georgette Heyer (2005) "

    " I love Georgette Heyer. And clearance sales that let me get a cheap copy of one of my favorites, also neat. Lovely characters and a truly hysterically funny climax to assorted plots, all neatly tied together at the end. Only, I can't figure out how to describe any of them without giving some of the funny away. So... funny regency romance. Everyone should read. Especially if you like Bujold's A Civil Campaign, as she credits Heyer for the inspiration. "

    " great characters but not as much activity as others from this great author. plus I felt cheated by the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 1/26/2014

    " This book had lots of good things going on: long lost heirs, quietly humorous situations, love and smugglers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 1/21/2014

    " Rating 3.5 i enjoyed this story better than The Old Shades but not as much as The Grand Sophy. Sometimes I feel I am reading a foreign language but that is part of the charm, I suppose. I plan to read more of her books but need some time before I do so I can appreciate the books more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 laninaki | 1/18/2014

    " One of my favorite Heyer novels....I love Hugo! I laughed out loud throughout the whole book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 1/16/2014

    " Hugh was one of my favorite guy characters, and I loved the storyline in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 1/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laural Winter | 12/20/2013

    " Hilarious story but not really a romance. I like the regency romances by Heyer they are vocabulary building. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fran Piercey | 12/19/2013

    " Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. No one in the family was prepared for the arrival of the weaver's brat and heir apparent. Main characters are Anthea and young brother Richmond with cousins Claud and Vincent all add to the fun and confusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 12/15/2013

    " This one was so much fun. It was not her normal story of how guy and girl get together. There were great side storys that made you laugh and wonder what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed it. This was one of my favorites of this author! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly | 12/15/2013

    " When the book finally got started it was really good and exciting! Unfortunately this happened about 250 pages in...and only about 100 from the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 11/19/2013

    " It wasn't her best. But i love these books because they are clean and just like Jane Austen books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brigitte | 10/5/2013

    " I had a hard time finishing this book. I basically skimmed through the last half of the book to get to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kassie Napoleon | 9/26/2013

    " Enjoyed it, but I don't like it as much as I have the other Heyer books that I have read, couldn't really tell you why though because it is just as fun and clever as the rest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrsdarcy | 9/16/2013

    " Excellent book, very enjoyable, beautifully written and thoroughly researched, as is usual with Heyer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/5/2013

    " I really like Georgette Heyer, Regency romantic comedy, a bit more interesting than most romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 11/12/2012

    " This one was very fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/7/2012

    " A distant cousin is in line to succeed his grandfather as heir. The rest of the family is opposed to him, but they all come to appreciate him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzie | 10/5/2012

    " This book had me laughing out loud! I laughed all the way through the last scene in the book when the entire family bands together! It was hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/21/2012

    " One of my favorite Heyers so far -- Hugo is irresistible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 5/12/2011

    " This reminded me of Quiet Gentleman, which is one of my favorites. This one wasn't as good but was still a lot of fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 4/5/2011

    " Happen you'll like this book! Snobs, smugglers, ghosts, an unusual hero and a worthy heroine.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne | 2/22/2011

    " Loved this! Went right to the top of my Heyers; the hero was just about perfect. I can't resist humor in a big lovely man, and Hugo is a perfect specimen of big, lovely and humorous. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brigitte | 1/31/2011

    " I had a hard time finishing this book. I basically skimmed through the last half of the book to get to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/18/2011

    " This was my first Georgette Meyer book. I think I would like it better now that I have read so many. At the time I didn't like the slang (it felt forced and like she was showing off that she knew it.) And I'm not into the marrying your cousin stuff... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marilou | 12/16/2010

    " I enjoy Heyer -- except where there is a close relationship between the leads. I just can't get past the idea that the fathers of the two main characters were brothers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodgers | 12/10/2010

    " Hard to read, especially out loud with all the unfamilar English words. I did a lot of guessing and asking Richard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/9/2010

    " Fun, entertaining. It took my mind off being pregnant for awhile, and that's about all I was hoping for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyne | 11/12/2010

    " not too much romance but good mystery element. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/8/2010

    " More time spent on a smuggling ring than on the lovely romance. "
