Pistols For Two




'Sparkling' - Independent on Sunday. One of the best-known and most beloved historical novelists captures a whole new audience in a stunning repackage.

Affairs of honour between bucks and blades, rakes and rascals; and affairs of the heart between heirs and orphans, beauties and bachelors; romance, intrigue, escapades and duels at dawn: all the gallantry, villainy and elegance of the age that Georgette Heyer has so triumphantly made her own are exquisitely revived in these eleven stories of the Regency.

Margaret Drabble

“"A writer of great wit and style - I've read her books to ragged shreds."”

Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph

“"Every girl, whatever her age, needs her own complete set of Heyer titles. More than romantic they are witty, elegant, stylish and the best comedies of manners since Jane Austen. Required reading for everyone."”
