Summary Faro's Daughter

The Big Feud between Max and Deb So if you love this kind Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, of battlef you love this kind DogFace of battlef sexes plotline complete with farcical events like a kidnapping a cultured woman dressing up like a tart and acting low class to embarrass the guy and his family gambling away What You Owe Me of fortunes etc this might be a really great read for you I ve read this book like most Heyers countless times if I had been rating books then thisne would have been around 35 But now I m a lot fond Buffalo Woman Comes Singing of assertive heroines while both leading characters are very prone to irrational actions I m looking at theriginal publication date 1941 If I was a reader in WW2 I certainly would have wanted frothy fast paced fun rather than grim reality But just to get an idea f the fantastic sums f money being thrown around in this book check ut this currency converter note it stopped being updated in 2005 Gulp the pace n this Shining City one never lets upDeb may be uick tempered but she is also loyal kind inventive when her aunt needs help with her gambling house she doesn t hesitate to step in even though she must have realised that she was putting paid to any chancef an eligible marriage leaving herself Blind Spots open to far less savouryffers But she doesn t waste time in regrets While Max is never given much in personality A Boy and A Bear in a Boat other than he is autocratic skilled in gambling the romance is allowed to gradually unfold This is skillfully done special mention to somef the minor characters Deb s aunt Lady Bellingham is SOS onef my favourites scatty yet kind GH gives her some the book s best lines I think Kit is the most horrible St. Johns Wort of all the unsatisfactory brothers in GH s stories It made me wonder if eitherf GH s The Roman Family own brothers had done anything to upset her at the timef writing Shallow disloyal self absorbed view spoiler he betrays Deb when she most needs help uses force against her to get his Hirvenmetsästäjä own way hide spoiler I love it Onef the best Heyer books I couldn t stop reading Fortunately I could spare time for that So I have read it in

read this novel the battlef the sexes A Christmas Miscellany of the firstrder set in Regency England Max is a rich powerful and arrogant aristocrat When he learns that his younger cousin twenty year Too Bad to Die old Adrian is in love with a girl from a gaming house a painted harpy in hispinion and contemplates matrimony Max is aghast He would stop at nothing to cut the connection His first step is to buy ff the greedy female In Deb he meets his match She is not painted nor greedy nor a harpy and she doesn t contemplate matrimony at least not to Adrian who is five years her junior She is as proud as Max but unfortunately her family hit hard "Times And She Has "and has choice but to help her aunt in her gaming establishment When Max ffers Deb 10000 pounds to break Resist (Wicked Ways Book

blow to Max s inflated ego he retaliates forcing her to exercise her creativity to the utmost for her next move While they strive to best eachther the readers smile and chuckle and enjoy every page f this funny and inventive tale DelightfulBookish musing The previous book I read was a modern paranormal romance a good book by all accounts but the comparison was inevitable With the exception f magic the male protagonists in both stories could be described by exactly the same words arrogant wealthy powerful autocratic absolutely unaccustomed to any resistance The female protagonists are also similar spirited compassionate fiercely independent would go to bat for their families But unlike the hero in the modern story Max would never resort to cruelty towards Deb Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, or anyther woman no matter how much he dreams The Indian in the Cupboard (The Indian in the Cupboard, of wringing her neck He is an alpha male yes but his politeness and manners are too ingrained he is a British aristocrat after all to do anything so base as apply deliberate pain to a female He is ruthless biased sometimes even hateful but his solutions are smart not brutal and he wants to win by his wits not his fists either literalr metaphorical And Reasoning and the Logic of Things of course no lust is involved in Heyer s story Everyone knows it s there in the background but it s resistible It doesn t influence neither Deb s nor Max s decisionsr actions Both have too much class to submit to their bodily urges Perhaps the comparison is unfair after all Heyer is a classic Her novels have been popular since 1921 and are still in print I m just saying I definitely prefer Georgette Heyer s approach Maybe I m too The Holcroft Covenant / The Rhinemann Exchange old fashione.
