"A superb portrayal of one of my all-time favorite writers. As engaging as a novel to read and containing a wealth of fascinating new material, I found the Heyer biography utterly engrossing." - Anne Gracie, award-winning author of Bride By Mistake
"Kloester has opened the door on one of the most private literary icons of the past century, one whose works made and continue to make a lasting impression on readers worldwide. Meticulously researched and supported, Kloester's study is both sympathetic and exact, and paints a finely detailed portrait of the woman behind the books. An engaging, intriguing, absorbing read-history is rarely this entertaining!" - #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens
"A vivid and highly readable portrait of a woman whose wit and keen social insight reshaped twentieth century fiction. As a writer whose work has been powerfully influenced by Heyer, I loved reading about her, her professionalism, and her own lasting real life romance. This biography should be required reading for all lovers of Regency novels." - Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author of No Longer A Gentleman
"With rare access to Heyer's private papers as well as the newly identified letters, Kloester perceptively analyzes Heyer's novels...
