An exciting and thrilling story from bestselling author Georgette Heyer, known as the Queen of Regency romance, legendary for her research, historical accuracy, and her extraordinary plots and characterizations.

Such a daring escape...

Their infamous adventurer father has taught Prudence Tremaine and her brother Robin to be masters of disguise. Ending up on the wrong side of the Jacobite rebellion, brother and sister flee to London, Prudence pretending to be a dashing young buck, and Robin a lovely young lady.

Could cost them both their hearts...

Then Prudence meets the elegant Sir Anthony Fanshawe, and Robin becomes the mysterious hero of the charming Letitia Grayson, and in order to have what they truly want, the two masqueraders must find a way to unmask themselves without losing their lives...

Fleeing the temporary collapse of their father's treasonous plots in 1746, siblings Prudence and Robin Merriot disguise themselves as members of the opposite sex and proceed to take London by storm.

This is early Heyer, and it shows -- the writing is an awkward pastiche of 19th century adventure novels (cf. These Old Shades), the setting is Georgian (cf. Powder and Patch), and the plot is a sedate string of episodes (as opposed to the tightly coiled Regency comedies of the 30s and 40s). But the novel's concept is nice (if oddly uncomplicated -- no ineligible suitors ever step forward for Prudence or Robin) and Heyer doesn't shirk from making Prudence competent at her manly pursuits. And whatever its faults, The Masqueraders is still loads better than Powder and Patch. I especially like the fraternal affection between the central siblings: one always stands ready to lend the other assistance, no matter what kind may be required. ( )

This is ridiculous but still quite entertaining. Either I missed something or else Heyer doesn’t really do a great job of explaining why Prudence and her brother Robin need to be in disguise, nor why they’ve decided the best way to do this is by crossdressing. But Robin is an escaped Jacobite with taste for drama, their respective heights make passing possible, and eventually Prudence refers to having often worn boys’ clothes (a detail I thought should have been established much earlier). It seems that they are both capable of, and comfortable with, disguising themselves thus, and I found the key to enjoying this book was to just roll with it.

Also Prue’s romantic interest is a type Heyer writes so well: perceptive, unflappable, competent, with a sense of humour and an appreciation of level-headedness in others. He’s a good match for Prue, who is, in spite of -- or perhaps, because of -- her unconventional and adventurous upbringing, quite sensible herself. Sensible people pushed into madcap adventures is something else Heyer has a flair for. ( )

I contrive! One of the best Heyer novels I've read so far. A grand, hilarious romp. ( )

This is a Georgian not a regency, which I like much better, but not a bad book like Powder and Patch. I'd read this before but I thought it was due for a re-read. Not bad but the romance wasn't as satisfying as I thought it would be. I found Anthony Fanshaw somewhat boring and too perfect. Nothing shocked him, which was more than a little unbelievable. However, the two main characters were interesting and the heroine was delightful. ( )
