NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

COTILLION

by Georgette Heyer



Kitty Charing will inherit a fortune from her guardian on one condition: She must marry one of his great-nephews. She cunningly sets up a sham betrothal with the somewhat slow-witted Freddy despite his objections, but when she accompanies him to London to meet his family and set in motion her plan to free herself from her marriage obligation, the unfamiliar steps in navigating the lifestyle of the ton quickly entangle her in a hilarious knot of secret loves and hearts that will not be denied.

I haven't read a Regency romance in many years, but I just may have to indulge again. Cotillion was adorable! Just the thing for a quick read and a good laugh between more serious historicals. I love the language and the atmosphere of the period, and Georgette Heyer is one of the masters. This may be my first book of hers, but there will definitely be more in my future.

You know I've not read any of Heyer's books either but I've heard they are really good. I had looked up a few a while back and put them on the list. Now it's just to find the time to get to read them. lol. Glad you enjoyed this one Lezlie.
