This is a nice edition of two Georgette Heyer novels in one volume. I have read only the second story, Charity Girl, at this point.

Charity Girl offers up the best of Heyer and the best of Regency Romance. If you haven't read Heyer novels before, consider that her books aren't what you might think of as romance as termed in recent years. Leave out the sensual and sensational and replace it with witty, cleaver, classy, and heartfelt and you will have the right idea.

This book is a compendium of two of Georgette Heyer's novels, each dealing with a "runaway" girl, both set in the Regency period.

On their way, they come upon a couple whose carriage has broken. They find out that the young woman, ...more

The question? Did the publisher pair these two books together because Lady of Quality was more favorably received than Chariy Girl? I might well have given the first title 4 starts; the second was a little slow for my liking, but entertaining nonetheless.

I only read the first one when my husband carried in home from work as he got it in the paperback exchange.

Georgette Heyer was an amazingly prolific writer who created the Regency England genre of romance novels.

Georgette Heyer was an intensely private person. A best-seller all her life without the aid of publicity, she made no appearances, never gave an interview, and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. Heyer wrote very well-researched historical fiction, fu
