About the Book

In Heyer's latest Regency novel, beautiful Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine, find Julian St. John Audley, the Fifth Earl of Worth, to be an arrogant, insufferable dandy. Unfortunately for them he is also, quite by chance, their legal guardian.

Book Synopsis

An altogether unsatisfactory arrangement

After their father's death, Miss Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine travel to London to meet their guardian, Lord Worth, expecting an elderly gentleman. To their surprise and utter disgust, their guardian is not much older than they are, doesn't want the office of guardian any more than they want him, and is determined to thwart all their interests and return them to the country.

With altogether too many complications

But when Miss Taverner and Peregrine begin to move in the highest social circles, Lord Worth cannot help but entangle himself with his adventuresome wards...

Praise for Regency Buck:

Clever!-- Library Journal

Georgette Heyer is unbeatable.-- Sunday Telegraph

Light and frothy, in the vein of the author's other Regency novels, this follows the fortunes of Miss Judith Taverner and her brother, Sir Peregrine. A good introduction to Heyer's period stories... -- The Booklist

Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.-- Publishers Weekly

A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds-- Katie Fenton, Daily Telegraph

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire too.--Katie Fforde

Review Quotes

Regency Buck is certainly worth adding to your Heyer library. -- Curled Up With a Good Book

[A]s always, somehow Heyer's heroine manages to time and again smash those pre-conceived notions and blaze a unique trail of her own. This is, by far, my favorite part of her books. Judith's character is one of the best representations of this Heyer trait. -- A Book Blogger's Diary

I love it for its amazingly accurate historical detail and for its hero and heroine. I love Worth and Judith both. --

I love Worth and Judith. I love the rich-layers of Regency Buck... -- Becky's Book Blog

This is a perfect read for a cold and rainy day--a romance with a little mystery thrown in... I thoroughly enjoyed this and can't wait to read more of Heyer's works. -- Library Queue

About the Author

The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.
