really liked it
Read in October, 2011

All Heyer romances share many basic characteristics, and they are further all rooted in their genre. Which means that the plot -is- going to revolve around the love relationships, and there -are- going to be barriers of greater or lesser believability. If you accept all this, THE NONESUCH is indeed delightful and hits all the sweet spots. It is nice to see a hero and heroine of principle and goodness, no longer young. It is this one and SPRIG MUSLIN that are my favorite Heyer novels, with FRIDAY'S CHILD close behind.

Katharine Kimbriel I really liked SPRIG MUSLIN, too! I always felt that I would have liked the hero and heroine as friends. Can't always say that about a Regency (about a romance, actually...)

Brenda Clough So true. In fact as I reflect on it I prefer romances in which the protagonists are old enough to have some sense. To believe that someone in their middle teens has the wisdom to pick a life companion is a stretch. (This is what comes of having kids!)

Katharine Kimbriel I screwed up at 27 selecting a spouse, so I find my new protagonists are going to include people as old as I can get away with....
