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. It is known that she was born in Wimbledon in August 1902, and her first novel, The Black Moth, was published in 1921. 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 also 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 mining engineer, and they had one son together, Richard.

Reviews

[T]horoughly enjoyable... I would read this book over 90% of the romances being published today. -- Vic Sandborn "Jane Austen's World" (05/01/2009)
A "Convenient Marriage" is an amusing romp through Regency England and sure to win your heart. -- Keira Gillet "Love Romance Passion" (05/14/2009)
A CONVENIENT MARRIAGE was just a wonderful book. I thought the storyline in this novel was extremely creative. -- Julie Peterson "Booking Mama" (05/18/2009)
I also just love the way Heyer writes. She takes us straight back to Regency England and I can feel it in the prose as well as in the historical details. -- Meghan Kawka "Medieval Bookworm" (05/22/2009)
The story is funny and the characters are easy to love. -- Carrie Zimmerman "The Book Girl" (05/26/2009)
The atmosphere of The "Convenient Marriage"--much like Heyer's other novels--is so rich, so detailed, so luxuriously drawn. -- Rebecca Laney "Becky's Book Reviews" (05/26/2009)
I was immediately taken with the premise of this story, and I liked the way that Heyer jumped right into the action. -- Nicole Bonia "LInus' Blanket" (05/26/2009)
[T]his book is the epitome of a comically charming period romance. -- Marie Burton "The Burton Review" (05/26/2009)
This is one of those books that you read and think to yourself 'Now why aren't men really like that?' Of course there is no shortage of Heyer's wit and charm. -- Shawn Remfry "Maymay's Memos" (05/29/2009)
If you are a fan of Jane Austen type romances - and haven't yet tried Georgette Heyer - pick this one up soon. -- Kristi Herbrand "Books and Needlepoint" (06/01/2009)
The "Convenient Marriage" is certainly a fun and entertaining read that allows fans of Regency books to get a glimpse of what life was like prior to the Regency era. -- Wendi Barker "Wendi's Book Corner" (06/01/2009)
What a fun, light, and sweet read this was. -- Naida Milenkovic "The Bookworm 07" (06/22/2009)
a fantastic little historical fiction romp through England... -- Heather Fargis "A Hidden Place" (06/29/2009)
For those who are sorely disappointed that Jane Austen's novels stop at 6, Georgette Heyer's Regency stories will happily salve the hurt. -- Sarah Dollacker "Red Room Library" (06/29/2009)
