Read full description of the books Venetia:IN LOVE WITH AN IMPROPER STRANGER
At twenty-give, Venetia Lanyon was far too close to spinsterhood to reject the attentions of the impeccable Mr. Edward Yardley. But the headstrong beauty vowed she'd rather die than marry a man she didn't love - especially since meeting her long-absent neighbor, the scandalous Lord Damerel.
He was quite the most dashing, yes dangerous, man she had ever known. And now, unwillingly, she was in his debt, tempted to cast her good name and reputation to the winds of fate!
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.
