Friday's Child




A dashing tale of heroes, heroines and Regency romance by one of our best-known and most beloved historical novelists.

'Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes. . . Utter, immersive escapism' SOPHIE KINSELLA

'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' JOANNE HARRIS________________________Hero Wantage is desperate to change her fate.

When the dashing Lord Sherry proposes out of the blue, Hero is overjoyed - she'll escape a life as a governess and, once they wed, he can finally claim his inheritance.

But as Hero attempts to social climb in glamorous London society, Sherry is concerned that her naivety will ruin them both and takes drastic action.

The chaos that follows will push friendships - and hearts - to breaking point.________________________ 'Heart-stoppingly gorgeous' Harriet Evans 'Georgette Heyer is second to none' Sunday Times
