    After many, many years of reading her books I still cannot fault Georgette Heyer as the best writer of Regency fiction Some of her books are marginally better than others but they are all good and I always read reread them when I feel that I need a treat Sylvester is one of my favourites It actually starts off rather slowly but once our main characters arrive at the inn most of Miss Heyer s best action takes place in wayside inns the pace picks up I actually sat and read from this point r After many, many years of reading her books I still cannot fault Georgette Heyer as the best writer of Regency fiction Some of her books are marginally better than others but they are all good and I always read reread them when I feel t...

    This was the third novel of Georgette Heyer s that I found, again under the guise of an audio book narrated by Richard Armitage I have extolled all of Richard Armitage s many virtues as a narrator in previous reviews, and I shall continue to do so until someone gets sick of it and tells me to shut the hell up and maybe not even then As usual his reading was perfectly paced, pleasant to listen to, and his vocal range deeply impressive What I particularly enjoyed in this one was the fact that This was the third novel of Georgette Heyer s that I found, again under the guise of an audio book narrated by Richard Armitage I have extolled all of Richard Armitage s many virtues as a narrator in previous reviews, and I shall continue to do so until someone gets sick of it and tells me to shut the hell up and maybe not even then As usual his reading wa...

    Three and a half stars, rounded up I had mixed feelings about Sylvester I thought the plot dragged a bit in some spots and got a bit overwrought in others, but the two lead characters carried the book for me, and on balance I ve begun to think this might be one of Heyer s most psychologically astute romances While I normally find it hard to warm up to Heyer s arrogant nobleman protagonists, I actually started to like Sylvester right from the moment on page three when he sees the small scampe Three and a half stars, rounded up I had mixed fe...
