    News flash I m not 18 anySo even though I still have a soft spot for romances in general and Regencies in particular, my appetite for reading about sweet, silly young girls who do brainless things and have Big Misunderstandings with the guy has dwindled to almost zero When you re yelling TALK TO EACH OTHER, PEOPLE at a book, it s not particularly conducive to the romantic feelz.Which brings me to Venetia Venetia herself is one of my favorite Heyer heroines intelligent, witty, resour News flash I m not 18 anySo even though I still have a soft spot for roman...

    I am one of those who steered clear of Georgette Heyer for years, even though I heard the comparisons to Jane Austen, I was afraid they were formulaic romances To my surprise it wasn t what I feared all those years and proved that breaking out of one s reading comfort zone can be quite rewarding This was madeenjoyable getting to read this along with Sabrina, who also had some of the same feelings regarding Heyer, and both of us ended up enjoying it I was aware Heyer was famous, or some I am one of those who steered clear of Georgette Heyer for years, even though I heard the comparisons to Jane Austen, I was afraid they were formulaic romances To my surp...

    Venetia is, without question, my favourite of all Georgette Heyer s Regency Romances, and I ve been looking forward to this new, unabridged audio version for some time Much of the story takes place in the Autumn, and I ve always felt that the book has a corresponding maturity about it, an almost elegiac feel in terms of the beauty of the prose and in the depth of the characterisation Damerel is certainly one of Ms Heyer s most strongly drawn and sexiest heroes, and the eponymous heroine is Venetia is, without question, my favourite of all Georgette Heyer s Regency Romances, and I ve been looking forward to this new, unabridged audio version for some time Much of the story takes place in the Autumn, and I ve always felt that the book has a corresponding maturity about it, an almost elegiac feel in terms of the beauty of the prose and in the depth of the characterisation Damerel is certainly one of Ms Heyer s most strongly drawn and sexiest heroes, and the eponymous heroine is an absolute gem intelligent, loving, practical and totally devoid of artifice.Ms Heyeror less invented the Regency Romance, and authors continue to be inspired to emulate her tales of young bucks and lovely ladies as they navigate their way through the conventions of society and the glittering ballrooms of the ton Venetia is pretty much the blueprint for the tale of the jaded rake who is reformed by his love for a refr...
