The Convenient Marriage



The Convenient Marriage was less appealing, mostly because of the different period and the stupid powdered hair. Because even with the high shirt points, I rather like the Regency look. For some reason I haven't unpicked yet, I can relate to the Regency fashion sense and see the eroticism of it, maybe just because of Pride & Prejudice. So maybe it was the visuals that kept damaging my engagement because certainly the story centres around one of my favourite romance cliches tropes and I was quite impressed with Heyer daring to give her heroine a stammer. As it was, there were some startlingly hot kisses which delighted me cos I'd been privately bemoaning the lack of sex. But yeah, for the most part, I was quite unmoved and bored, even.

Couldn't find the cover for the library edition I read so this is the re-release cover.

I've heard so much about Georgette Heyer that I'm determined to read at least one of her Regencies. I finally bought The Conguere, which I havne't read, but it isn't a Regency romance.

If you want a starting point for Heyer Regency romance, I highly recommend Frederica.
