Frederica Summary

Frederica: Georgette Heyer Classic Heroines by Georgette Heyer

'Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes . . . Utter, immersive escapism' SOPHIE KINSELLA

'I could mainline Heyer's Regency romances until the end of time and still not get bored . . . Georgette Heyer is perfect lockdown escapism' INDIA KNIGHT
______________________________

Vernon Alverstoke sees no reason to put himself out for anyone.

But when a distant connection asks for help, he is quickly plunged into one drama after another by the disorderly Merriville family.

Surprisingly, he finds himself far from bored - especially when he encounters their strong-minded daughter, Frederica.

However, she seems far more concerned with her family's welfare than his romantic advances...

Frederica Reviews

If you want to escape lockdown completely, then I recommend any novel by Georgette Heyer, or indeed, all her novels. They are absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes, winsome heroines, fops, dandies, dastardly baddies and lots of sumptuous descriptions of silk-lined bonnets, cravats and breeches. Utter, immersive escapism. Try starting off with Frederica. -- SOPHIE KINSELLA * Hello! magazine *
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
Triumphantly good -- India Knight
Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic -- Katie Fforde
A writer of great wit and style * Daily Telegraph *
