‘Regency Buck’ is another notable achievement from Georgette Heyer, the inventor of Regency romance. This novel was the first of what went on to be an extensive series of stories set in the Regency period, as well as one of the few that combined both elements of mystery and romance into the overall plot.
This compelling CD audiobook introduces listeners to the lives of the Taverner siblings, Judith and her mischievous younger brother, Peregrine. The pair come to London to join high society but are both unimpressed when they discover their legal guardian is the arrogant and unlikable Julian St. John Audley, the fifth Earl of Worth. To the beautiful young Judith’s dismay, the Earl refuses to permit any of the offers of marriage she receives. What is the disagreeable Earl’s ultimate intention? What’s more, what will become of young Perry, who seems to find his way into a number of difficult and dangerous scrapes that could threaten his life?
‘Regency Buck’ aptly demonstrates Heyer’s ability to breathe life and character into indisputably well-researched historical accuracy.
