I didn't expect a book with this title (you have to admit it doesn't sound very promising) to be this lovely and wonderful. If I were hard-pressed to describe Regency Buck in only a couple of words, then Heyer's livelier, more colourful and more humorous version of Pride and Prejudice would have to do.

There are so many things I loved here. A bond between siblings (both Judith and Peregrine and Lord Worth and his brother) was always something a reader could rely on.
Peregrine's immaturity was depicted in a lightest way. Judith's numerous prejudices were a bit annoying at times because even if you had no idea what was going on in Lord Worth's head, you knew enough to trust him.

An uncomfortable theme was used in the book, but it wasn't there just to spice the story up. Certain actions caused despicable behaviour. The Prince Regent trying to seduce Judith was disgusting. ( )

If you've never read a regency romance before, this is a great place to start. A lot of the book is about the people and the rules of society. It's a good story, but it's really long because of all of the extra info. This was apparently the first regency Georgette Heyer wrote, so it makes since. She was a stickler for accuracy. I would recommend one skip Regency Buck and read Cotillion or any of the later regencies. ( )

Predictable but a thoroughly enjoyable ride — classic Heyer. ( )

"After their father's death, Miss Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine travel to London to meet their guardian, Lord Worth, expecting an elderly gentleman. To their surprise and utter disgust, their guardian is not much older than they are, doesn't want the office of guardian any more than they want him, and is determined to thwart all their interests and return them to the country. But when Miss Taverner and Peregrine begin to move in the highest social circles, Lord Worth cannot help but entangle himself with his adventuresome wards..."--Publisher's website.… (more)
