“Regency Buck” blends humour, intrigue, and action superbly well. The only aspects I disliked about this novel are Ms Heyer’s usual exhaustive descriptions of people’s clothes and the extensive descriptions of rooms or buildings.

Long third-person explanations don’t appeal to me, whereas upbeat dialogue and engaging character exchanges do. Here we have a strong cast, of which I especially like the two main stars, the Earl of Worth and Miss Judith Taverner. The arguments and conflict between these two main characters are highly entertaining.

A very good read. ( )

A very enjoyable novel - a spirited heroine and a fun twist towards the end. ( )

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)
