This is one of my favorite books, it is filled with adventure and romance. Georgette Heyer is a wonderful writer, her dialog is clever and her characters come alive on the page. My 19 year old son read it and really liked the manliness of the main character and how he is quick with his sword!
This is the best book I have read in a very long time! Barnabus is a wonderful man who you come to know in great and small ways. There is excitement and mystery and of course LOVE! One of my favorite characters is the Duchess, she reminds me of my Great aunt who lived into her 90's. I highly recommend this book.
