    So the thing about Georgette Heyer s romances is this I like them, but I have to space the fuckers out She s really only got like eight characters, and only two kinds of romantic heroes the scandalous rake, usually lots older than the heroine, and the rarer dandy , and her stories all seem to follow the same beats, so if I go straight from one Heyer romance to another, it s impossible to ignore the crea

    Disclaimer Anyone but HER and this book would probably garner 3 stars A collection of short stories by Georgette Heyer.I found the titular story miserably boring It is the sole reason I haven t gotten to this volume before Once I passed it, the stories weren t so bad I enjoyed some, particularly Hazard.

    Favourites as I m rereading 1st Nov 2015 The Duel loved it I do find it funny how the girl implores a stranger to convince a man not to kill her brother in a duel The best part is when the man gets hit Hazard oh yes haha humourous and adorable, a guy waking up hungover devilishly aware when he realises where he is that he s eloping when already engaged
