About the Author

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is one of the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, making the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Although most famous for her historical novels, she also wrote twelve detective stories. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Reviews

Lady of Quality is a must for any fan of the Regency era. It's full of all those little details that readers of this type of fiction love. References to balls and routs, references to royalty and great country houses, battles fought with delicate words and even a few passionate kisses- at the proper time, of course. -- Blog Critics

Georgette Heyer was one of the great protagonists of the historical novel in the post-war golden age of the form. Her regency romances are delightful light reading, and her historical novels such as The Spanish Bride and An Infamous Army demonstrate how fiction and history can work together to make a valuable literary form. -- Philippa Gregory


it's a stunning example of her style and voice, perfected over her years of writing. Whether you're a long-time Heyer fan or have never tried one of her novels, I'd definitely suggest you give this one a try. I did and I'm glad. She was, after all, and will always be the Queen of the Regency romance. -- Queue My Review
Georgette's frothy, sparkling, and often funny romances are as light and sugary as a meringue, and just as filling, which is to say that one becomes hungry to read more after having just finished the previous book. -- Jane Austen's World
I would definitely recommend her books to all of you Jane Austen fans who want more to read from this time period -- Good Clean Reads

It also reminds us why Georgette Heyer is justly called The Queen of Regency Romance. Though this volume was written near the end of her career, the author's fine hand never falters. -- Book Loons
So, if you're in the mood for a nice, little tale of independence, friendship and love then I recommend Lady of Quality. -- Passages to the Past
This story is amusing and near the end, wonderfully dramatic and romantic. -- Romance Reviews
This was a fun read indeed. -- A Work in Progress
