Description (Amazon)
Walking home at dawn, quite drunk, Sir Richard Wyndham encounters heiress Penelope Creed climbing out her window. She is running away from a dreaded marriage to her fish-lipped cousin, while Sir Richard himself is contemplating a loveless marriage with a woman his friends have compared to a cold poultice. Sir Richard can't allow her to careen about the countryside unchaperoned, even in the guise of a boy, so he pretends to be her tutor and takes her on a fine adventure. When their stagecoach overturns, they find themselves embroiled with thieves, at the center of a murder investigation, and finally, in love.

Review

Sourcebooks Casablanca, who was kind enough to send me this copy to review, is bringing back classic Heyer novels in affordable paperback editions. Heyer wrote over fifty novels, including her wonderful Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction.

This book was such a treat to read. I originally went through my Heyer phase in about junior high, so it was fun to go back and re-read it as an adult. It didn't lose anything in the 'translation' from young girl to adult and I think it's great that Sourcebooks is bringing them back! This is definitely a keeper!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
