really liked it
bookshelves: regency, comfortreading

So cute! I really liked Horry and Rule, but Pelham (wonder if the name was picked on purpose -- wasn't Heyer contemporaries with Wodehouse?) and Sir Roland Pommeroy are the scene-stealers here. Heyer should really have written a whole book about her foppish, shiftless, silly but amiable boys. (I know there's Freddy in Cotillion, but I mean, it would be good to have a book full of their absurd adventures.)

Also I could wish that Heyer didn't keep skipping the moment where the main characters fall in love. Usually one jumps from mutual indifference/antipathy to luv, and she starts explaining how A finds it very difficult to woo B because they did not mean to marry for love and all that, but when did they start to yearn? But I guess Heyer is really more about the absurd adventures than the romansu, or equal amounts.
