This is one of my favorite romance novels, ever. I am not even afraid to review it here on this pretentious book site, I love it so much. I have worn through my copy of it. It is lovely beat up and bent back to the pages of all my favorite parts. The Heyer hallmarks are all here: great characters, hilarious plot, breaking the genre rules, a somewhat effete hero (but in a manly way). The main character, Leonie, is absolutely adorable. I don't even care if others find her annoying, she makes me laugh. I've been reading this book since I was 13 and I still feel that way. This book actually has some great layers. There's real darkness and fear and complexity in the characters. It isn't just the farce that it could be. Far from it. There's real mystery and a deep sympathy to the hero, Justin. Easily the first book hero I ever fell in love with. He's quite gothic, but with that Regency sprinkling of humor that I love. (Think Mr. Rochester... but polished. And hilarious.) Whatever, shut up. I love Georgette Heyer. This was one of the books that really helped along my love for 18th/19th century Brit lit.
