Updated edition of the beloved classic by the Queen of Regency romance herself, Georgette Heyer, featuring a new Foreword by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James. Arabella's one little while lie has spread through the ton like wildfire? Arabella Tallant, modest daughter of a country clergyman, is on her way to her first London Season when her carriage breaks down outside the estate of the wealthy and bored Mr. Robert Beaumaris. Beau assumes she's simply another young lady throwing herself in his path, which goads the impetuous Arabella into pretending she's an heiress. Much to Arabella's dismay, rather than being brutally set-down, as she intended, Beaumaris is deeply amused. He counters by launching her into high society, which Arabella would enjoy very much if it wasn't for the fortune hunters. Arabella's unpredictable and innocent ways force Beaumaris to start helping others, including a stray dog, an unfortunate urchin, and eventually Arabella's reckless young brother. Along the way, Arabella and Beaumaris become more and more intrigued with each other-which neither will admit, of course, until under extreme duress. "Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes? Utter, immersive escapism."-SOPHIE KINSELLA "No one has ever matched Georgette Heyer for charm and wit." -LISA KLEYPAS "Utterly timeless charm? The dialogue sparkles with wit." -NORA ROBERTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Romance, adventure, side-splitting humor-no one writes like Georgette Heyer!" -LAUREN WILLIG, New York Times bestsellin… (mais)

I liked Heyer's other books better. This one was really slow to start, but was ok once it got going. My favourite thing about this book was the dialog 'between' Beaumaris and his dog. Quite funny. ( )

To Arabella Tallant, the eldest daughter of a penniless country clergyman, the invitation to stay with her London godmother was like the key to heaven, for in addition to living in the glamorous city, Arabella might even find a suitable husband there. Armed with beauty, virtue and a benevolent godmother, the impetuous but impoverished Arabella embarked on her first London season with her mother's wish in mind: snare a rich husband.

On her way to London Arabella's carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy and socially prominent Robert Beaumaris, fate cast her in his path. Arabella's only fault is impetuosity, and her pride stung when she overhears a remark of her path of arrogant host, who accused her of being another petty female after his wealth, the proud, headstrong ingenue made a most startling claim -- she was an heiress! A pretense that deeply amuses the jaded Beau. To counter her white lie, Beaumaris launches her into high society and thereby subjects her to all kinds of amorous fortune hunters in London and other embarrassments.

Suddenly Arabella found herself the talk of the ton and pursued by some of the most eligible young men of the day. But only one caught Arabella's fancy: Beaumaris, the handsome and dedicated bachelor. She should know better than to allow herself to be provoked by nonpareil Beau. But would her deceitful charade destroy her one chance for true love...? ( )

This was far from my favorite of Heyer's work -- not terrible, but a bit slow moving and I don't care for the love interest at all. I like Arabella and her naive but strong opinions. I despised Beaumarais for not confessing before running off with her in a carriage. Definitely feels like early work to me, and while it's quite decent for a romance from the 40s, I didn't find it delicious.

Advanced reader's copy of re-release provided by Edelweiss. ( )

Another amusing if not entirely unexpectedly plotted Heyer tale of London intrigue and general bemusement. ( )

The schoolroom in the Parsonage at Heythram was not a large apartment, but on a bleak January day, in a household where the consumption of coals was a consideration, this was not felt by its occupants to be a disadvantage.
