Product description

Review

The Corinthian remains one of my favorite Georgette Heyer books... a treat and a keeper. (Lesa Holstine Lesa's Book Critiques 2009-05-26)

hilarious, imaginative, witty, and compelling. (Shawn Remfry Maymay's Memos 2009-05-28)

I enjoyed myself while reading this fast-paced romp... delightful. (Ms. Place Jane Austen's World 2009-06-12)

The Corinthian is a light-hearted comedy of manners... This is one Heyer I'll be revisiting soon. (Danielle Torres A Work in Progress 2009-06-26)

This is a delightfully fun and adventurous romance full of laugh-out-loud moments. (Wendi Barker Wendi's Book Corner 2009-07-01)

Rolicking fun in the form of a Regency-style road trip with romance and intrigue, terrific characters and witty dialogue. (Nancy Horner Bookfoolery and Babble 2009-07-01)

I adored this book. I adore Heyer. I want to go out and gobble up everything she ever wrote and I will. Slowly and deliciously. (Heather Fargis A Hidden Place 2009-07-07)

Georgette Heyer was at the top of her game with The Corinthian... it is one of her best adventure/romances. (Sharon Goforth Ex Libris 2009-07-08)

Fascinating... a very enjoyable read. (Jessica West The Curious Reader 2009-07-31)

The Corinthian is a wonderful book... a must read on a rainy day. (Shana Haynes Books-are-Life Reviews 2009-07-31)

This one is playful and fun. There's some adventure thrown in as well--and a murder!--but at it's heart this is a romantic comedy. (Rebecca Laney Becky's Book Reviews 2009-07-31)

Superbly written, with an undercurrent of humor throughout, THE CORINTHIAN is a sheer joy to read. (Camellia The Long and Short of It Reviews 2009-08-24)

Part road romance and all romp, this delicious comedy of manners is filled with adventure and fun, and Heyer's superb wit and humor, Once you begin this page-turning delight, you will not be able to put it down! (Deborah Hosey The Romance Readers Connection 2009-08-24)

[T]he writing is good, the subtle romance is sweet, the adventure is fun. (Ana Grilo The Book Smugglers 2009-08-25) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George RonaldRougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
