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.


It helps to have excellent historical details as well as superb writing, both of which happen to be what the author is known for. Georgette Heyer writes a novel that you are always dying to pick back up once you've set it down.
Definitely recommended to historical fiction fans especially if you love Regency Romance.
I enjoyed this book enormously. I can see that Heyer will become a favorite for light reading, beach reading, comfort reading.
I cannot recommend Cotillion enough, for its conclusion is as satisfying as its very promising beginning.
Cotillion is a fine example of Ms. Heyer's talent at creating a fast-paced and enjoyable story with likeable characters.
Cotillion by Georgette Heyer, for me, can be best described as a great 'romp' through a Regency Romance. I loved it!
If you read just one Heyer book, make it this one!
Cotillion is completely fun and entertaining.
