Affairs of honour between bucks and blades, rakes
and rascals ; and affairs of the heart between heirs and
orphans, beauties and bachelors ; romance, intrigue,
escapades and duels at dawn : all the gallantry, villainy and
elegance of the age that Georgette Heyer has so
triumphantly made her own are exquisitely revived
in these eleven stories of the Regency.
