Read full description of the books:
"My aunt said in future I should be called Charity," said Cherry Steane pathetically, "to keep me in mind of the fact that that is what I am - a charity girl."
Lord Desford's chivalrous instincts are instantly aroused, and, in spite of support from Miss Henrietta Silverdale, his childhood playmate and best of friends, and from his irrepressible younger brother Simon, he finds himself in a rare case of pickles, in which he is baulked by Cherry's lickpenny grandfather and her rascally, worthless father, and from which he is finally delivered by the timely intervention of Henrietta's worthy suitor, Cary Nethercott.

Read information about the authorGeorgette Heyer was a prolific historical romance and detective fiction novelist. Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth.
In 1925 she married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and he often provided basic plot outlines for her thrillers. Beginning in 1932, Heyer released one romance novel and one thriller each year.
Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity. She made no appearances, never gave an interview and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. She sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stella Martin.
Her Regencies were inspired by Jane Austen, but unlike Austen, who wrote about and for the times in which she lived, Heyer was forced to include copious information about the period so that her readers would understand the setting. While some critics thought her novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyer's greatest asset.
Heyer remains a popular and much-loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.
