Heyer Days and Giveaways!

So today is the first day of “Heyer Days,” my blog party celebrating the works of a talented romance author whose work has not only provided enjoyment for readers, but has also inspired many writers over the years…Georgette Heyer.

 

Ms. Heyer authored over 50 books during her lifetime and has received much praise for her witty writing, fabulous characters, detail to the time periods and more.  Sourcebooks, Inc. has been re-releasing some of these wonderful books so that people can continue to read and discover why this author is considered the Queen of Regency Romance.

 

This week I will be spotlighting a few of these lovely books.
Each day from Dec. 1-5, I’ll be blogging about a different Georgette Heyer book and giving a copy of that book away courtesy of Sourcebooks, Inc.


So be sure to check back each day this week for your chance to discover why Georgette Heyer is a favorite of many romance readers and writers today!

Up first in my Heyer Days party is…

 

Faro’s Daughter

 

faroIn 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.

    Hi, Jennifer!

    You know, I’ve read only a few of Ms Heyer’s books, and Faro’s Daughter is not among them. I would really love to get it.

    I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  5. Lois says:

    I’d love to be added too — me, I only have read one, and that was the Great Sophy. And quite liked it too! 🙂 And I sure am a Regency addict, but it’s just always hard to figure out what to go with next, you know? LOL 🙂

    Don’t enter me in this one, but I’m looking forward to too discussing the others!!!! I have FARGO’S DAUGHTER and its a beautiful cover! I’m reading now BLACK SHEEP and I’m so totally lost into the book, that I kept smiling through reading it. It feels so great to read hers again. I only read a couple, and I don’t know which, when I was a teen, so this is great that they put them out in the trade size, so much easier to read.! Best of luck all. I’m looking forward to discussing more of hers with you on the blog here!
