Up first in my Heyer Days party is…
In this charming Regency romance, Max Ravenscar has been asked by his aunt to intervene when his young cousin falls for Deborah Grantham, whose aunt owns a popular and elegant gambling house. Max heads to the gaming house and finds himself intrigued by the lovely young woman despite his belief that she is a fortunehunter. When he realizes that his cousin’s interest in Deb is serious, he will do all that he can to prevent the match including bribery. His offer enrages Deb who sets out to make Max see that she can’t be bought.
This book features quite a few interesting characters and a fascinating story. I loved the character of Deb who finds herself in quite the predicament as she fends off advances and proposals from two suitors while also dealing with Max. She also has to find a way to help her aunt who has found herself with quite a few debts. There is more to Deb than meets the eye and I enjoyed each new discovery about her.
The book is also a fine example of how well Ms. Heyer illustrates the Regency life in her work. With its charming characters and attention to detail, Faro’s Daughter is a wonderful tale.
