Author: Georgette Heyer
Original language: English
Georgette Heyer wrote a dozen mysteries, but included a Gothic element in only two of her Regency romances-Cousin Kate and The Quiet Gentleman. Upon his return from Waterloo, Gervase Frant expected a hero’s welcome-instead he’s given a frigid cold shoulder. But when he begins to fall for his half-brother’s sweetheart, his chilly reception goes from unfriendly to murderous as Gervase finds himself in several life-threatening “accidents.” Justice is swift, and love wins the day.
“Fascinating reading…authentic atmosphere in a delightful English tale.”-Chicago Tribune
