  1. I must say I love a happy ending and after Diana's death and all the controversy with marriages in the royal family it is nice to see Prince William in love. I couldn't imagine being a Prince or marrying one but hey what are dreams and books for lol! I do wish him and Kate all the best!!! And thanks for this giveaway!


  2. I find Georgette Heyer's books to be witty in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. She obviously had a good sense of humor and it shows. Thank you for the giveaway!

  3. It seems to me that Georgette Heyer "defined" the regence period. I've read several of her regency romances and love them. Haven't yet read any of the mysteries.
