A well written witty combination of love and adventure. I absolutely love Georgette Heyer's romance novels and still intend to tick them all off my reading list. I've lost count how many times I've read this book and it is definitely one of my favourites! I rather liked the heroine Mary and her strait-laced ways and smart humour. The devilish Marquis Vidal would make any woman swoon, portraying a bad boy/but still a gentleman-but not really-demeanour (his description is totally my type) Ah...! Haha if only there were such a thing as book travel..!
