Whilst I'm here.....

I've just discovered a newish book written about Harry and Juana from "Spanish bride"

In Love and War: The Lives of General Harry and Lady Smith by David Rooney and Michael Scott (hardcover only) this covers all his career with Juana and has got some good reviews on Amazon.co.uk

Harry Smith's own autobiography has now come out on Kindle as well at just over £5 in the uk. (searching "Books" for Harry Smith finds both of them)

Spanish bride gave me an addiction to reading all I could on the Peninsular war and a fortune on books by Kincaid, George Simmons, etc, etc!

TO CAP. To take one's oath. I will cap downright; I will swear home. CANT

From Grose Dictionary of the vulgar tongue. 1811

You will find the whole dictionary at Gutenberg.org and it makes an enjoyable read.

Hope this helps

Hello fellow Heyer fans! SInce Heyer readers are several notches above most readers, I figured this would be a good place to get help translating this arcane phrase. Anybody have any idea what "I'll cap downright" means?

Thanks!

Nearly sixty years old and have been reading non-stop since I was nine - and never read a Georgette Heyer!! Such a treat to find a new author, and one with a terrific website. Started with Arabella, and expect to be busy for years...

Have read and reread Ms Heyer's wondrous works these last forty years. I first discovered Heyer as a teen and avid reader living in Spain. Her Regency romances have since become my literary "comfort food."

In the past 6 months, I have now read: The Masqueraders, Regency Buck, An infamous Army, Friday’s Child, The Grand Sophy, Sprig Muslin, April Lady, Venetia, Pistols For Two, The Nonesuch, Charity Girl, and A Lady Of Quality. Although Ms Heyer works a similar theme in all of these works, her means for arriving there are infinitely variable and fascinating. Not a single one of these works has failed to delight me and I plan to, somehow, read every one of her books if I can. Thank you for an enlightening/educational/entertaining website!

Dear Dr. Sally,

I am writing from FiveBooks at TheBrowser.com. Each day on FiveBooks, we feature an interview with an expert -- a scholar, artist, politician, journalist, or other eminent figure -- who recommends and discusses the five best books in his or her field.

I thought you might be interested in our interview with best-selling author Stella Tillyard , who recommends five top books on the Regency period.

Here is the link:
http://thebrowser.com/interviews/stella-tillyard-on-regency-period

If you like the interview, please consider sharing the link.


Thank you for you time.

Kind regards,

Julia Terentyeva

My mother, now 88 has an almost complete collection of GH's books, including her murder/mystery stories. I started reading them in my teens and decades later I still re-read them. Her turn of phrase and humour is something I have not found in other writer's books. She has given me (and my mother) many many hours of pleasurable reading.

This is so COOL! My mother was a Georgette Heyer addict and I had read most of the Regency novels before I was 14. 30 years on I have rediscovered GH's books and I still love her ability to describe that bygone era so vividly. Her writing places me in a 'virtual' museum - and the dialogue is so refreshingly witty.

I just discovered this web site and am so very pleased. I started reading Georgette when I was 12 yrs old and am now 57. I reread all her books every year or so and find comfort therein. These Old Shades, Venetia, Frederica and An Infamous Army are among my favorites but I truly love all of her novels. Please forgive my idiotish ramblings, I am so happy to have found this site.

For a comprehensive list of Regency cant go to Gutenberg.org and look up Grose. It comes in various types of e book download and is free.

1811 Dictionary in the Vulgar Tongue, by Francis Grose

After reading a number of trashy regency novels, I discovered Georgette Heyer's extraordinary talent for the nuanced. She can be incredibly funny and yet make you totally empathize with her characters. So far, my favorite is Friday's Child and my least favorite is Lady of Quality. Mariah just drives me batty with her whining and carrying on.

Does anyone know of a good regency dictionary. I want to know what "Flats and Legs" means.

Thanks.

Wonderful site!

I've been reading Georgette Heyer's books for thirty-mumble years, since I was 11 years old. And I make a habit of rereading at least one of her books a year.

Re your film page. Years ago, in the '80's, I heard someone interviewed on the radio and he said that there are few movies because "The Reluctant Widow" was so bad that Georgette Heyer refused to sell the film and tv rights for her other books in her lifetime. Unfortunately, I can't remember who it was as I heard this in the late '80's. But, judging by how bad the movie is, I believe it.

I wanted to share my comments on Georgette Heyer’s books after I read all the romance books.
I discovered Heyer a year ago, through the Sylvester and Venetia audio books that were recorded by Richard Armitage. Over nine months, I purchased thirty-six Heyer physical books (…still shopping for Unknown Ajax and Quiet Gentleman). When I read Convenient Marriage and These Old Shades, I realized that I had read the books forty years ago, at my Aunt’s house in Guyana. Four decades later, I became enrapt with Georgette Heyer’s couples.
My top 5 favorites are Devil’s Club, These Old Shades, Federica, Regency Buck and Spanish Bride. Most favorite heroes are the tall, dangerous rakes; Avon, Rule, Worth, Vidal, Damerel, Alverstoke (I think that he might be tall) and Calverleigh. Most favorite heroines are Venetia, Frederica, Leonie, Hero, Mary, Juana and Jenny. Top 5 favorite couples are Venetia & Damerel, Vidal & Mary, Alverstoke & Federica, Worth & Judith and Harry & Juana.
Of thirty-six leading men, I award Lynton, my Antipathy-Indifference vote. I might have felt 5% tendre for him, when he experienced leg pain. Jenny wins my Empathy-Heartbreak vote. Strangely, the book that I could not put away for two months, was Civil Contract. It is a hard read every time, because of Lynton’s judgmental attitude toward Jenny.
The other book, that I waited many months to purchase, was Spanish Bride because it was “historical”. I have read this book many times, and enjoyed Harry’s and Juana’s affaire de coeur.
Love/Shirley

Hi, I've just discovered your site. Amereon Ltd. has had many of the Heyer titles available in hardcover reprints for many, many years. As titles go out of stock, they are reissued. I don't find any mention of us on your site and thought that your members would like to know about us.
