I am afraid I still don't quite see the point of Heyer. Many very clever people like reading her... and I don't understand why :( This is my second Heyer (the first being Cotillion, which was OK), and I absolutely hate it, from the abusive 'wild' young nobleman, Vidal, to the colourless, 'placid-yet-can-t-help-but-fall-in-love-with-bad-boy' Ms Challoner. Some of the scenes are positively distasteful, with the male party often resorting to threats of forcing alcohol down a woman's throat, or shouting about strangling her into submission. (view spoiler)

No more Heyer for me...
