characters Regency Buck

E powerful Earl of WorthOnce Judith had looked upon the Earl as a protector and then as something far But now she was gown up worldly wise and prey to a chilling suspicion For Judith was not only a bewitching young lady but also heiress to a great fortune a bewildered creature trying to discover the difference between a man's love and a man's greed Heiress Judith Taverner fights her loathing and her desire for the iron willed but handsome man who is her suitor. This is Georgette Heyer s first Regency romance and has seen its fair share of criticism particularly of its hero the fifth Earl of Worth Julian Audley The beautiful heiress Judith Taverner and her brother Sir Peregrine are on their way to London in search of their guardian when they chance upon a aristocrat who gets entirely too familiar with the feisty Judith They soon discover that this man is none other than the guardian they had come to meet In spite of all the criticism I have read about this novel this is my favorite Heyer read so far for several reasons The descriptions of the life and times in Regency England are very detailed and are a pleasure to read The story features so many characters who were actually a part of history such as Beau Brummell the Duke of Clarence Lord Alvanley and so many Beau Brummell the arbiter of men s fashion in Regency times has a significant part to play and I found myself wanting of him In addition there is a mystery aspect to this book Someone appears to be trying to kill Sir Peregrine and there is than one suspect Also the romantic tension between the hero and heroine is the best I have seen in a Heyer work All said I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and while I can understand all the criticism directed against Lord Worth he will remain my favorite Heyer hero

Es in the world and which have made another generation fall in love with her all over againBut when Judith and Peregrine begin to move in the highest social circles Lord Worth cannot help but entangle himself with his adventuresome wards Beautiful Judith Taverner had captivated all London society A bevy of elegant bachelors swarmed about her vying for her favors But then her brother suddenly vanished she was forced to seek the aid of her mysterious guardian th. The one where our heroine and her silly brother discover upon their father s death that their new guardian is the sardonic Lord Worth And then everyone gets into social scrapesAlmost but decidedly no The heroine here is almost my favorite kind of Heyer girl witty perceptive cleverer than the men who are supposed to be her betters except for how she s ultimately an idiot so that the hero can explain the entire plot to her And the hero Almost my favorite sort of Heyer man dry sarcastic smart except for the part where he s also a raging asshole And their dynamic is almost my favorite sort of Heyer romance where the couple spends the entire book being hilariously cutting at each other except for how he sexually assaults her on first meeting threatens to beat her later and she seems to like that sort of thingActually you know one of my favorite things about Heyer in general is that she really played around with romance structures and I almost said conventions but of course it wasn t that since she invented so many of them This book is no different It s a vague sort of mystery where you re supposed to be unsure who the hero actually is but the whole thing almost but ultimately just doesn t workSometimes so close is also so very very far

    With any other hero I might consider this the best of Heyer As it was I was torn between hating Lord Worth and being swept up in the storyJudith Taverner and her younger sillier brother Peregrine have been recently orphaned and with spirited curiosity they decide to seek out their new guardian the high handed Lord Worth They are uite surprised to learn he is a young handsome man who is friends with the Crown Prince and t

    In defence of Regency BuckI have recently in a Georgette Heyer forum here on GR briefly addressed the perplexing nature of the hatred Lord Worth gets in comparison with other Heyer heroes and Judith too in comparison with other Heyer heroine
