Powder And Patch

Gossip, scandal and an unforgettable Regency romance




A thrilling, witty, heart-racing Regency romance by one of our best-known and most beloved historical novelists.

IF YOU LOVE BRIDGERTON, YOU'LL LOVE GEORGETTE HEYER!

'A rollicking good read that will be of particular joy to Bridgerton viewers ... the permanent glister of scandal [...] ties the whole thing together' INDEPENDENT
'[My] generation's Julia Quinn' ADJOA ANDOH, star of Bridgerton, in RED

'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' JOANNE HARRIS
__________________________
In an 18th-century England of wit, womanising and powdered wigs, provincial Philip Jettan runs the risk of irreproachability. Cleone Charteris stands in no such danger. The golden-haired, headstrong despair of men, she seeks a husband who can duel and dice with the best of them. So Philip leaves for Paris, where his father's hopes and his lover's ideals are realised but with unforeseen consequences for them both ...

A peerlessly successful and prolific romantic novelist, Georgette Heyer shows in Powder And Patch what won her a wide, devoted readership that continues to this day.

Praise for Powder And Patch

My favourite historical novelist -- stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours.

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.

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