A Civil Contract Reviews

Sparkling * Independent *
My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours. * Margaret Drabble *
Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to. * Katie Fforde *
A writer of great wit and style.... I've read her books to ragged shreds. * Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph *
Georgette Heyer is unbeatable * India Knight *
