The rest of the time she was irritating. I actually did it. I’m sorry,” said the Viscount simply.

When Horry goes to the remote, sophisticated Earl of Rule to offer herself as the Family Sacrifice in her older sister’s place, the earl surprises everyone by beyer her proposal. As odd as that sounds, it makes perfect sense to me. Horry proposes a marriage of convenience to Lord Rule with the promise that she will not interfere with him after they are married. Actually, the hero didn’t even have chemistry with his mistress.

Furious, Horry rushes away running into Lady Caroline Massey convennient recognizes her. Of course, the character that made such an effort necessary was Robert, Baron Lethbridge.

The new Countess of Rule wastes no time in becoming the sensation of the bon ton dressing to the nines, attending parties, the opera, gambling huge sums and getting into all sorts of scrapes while her husband continues to pay attentions to his mistress Lady Caroline Massey. It’s a light-hearted Georgian romp about a very immature young lady who convinces a very rich Earl that he should offer for her instead of for her beautiful older sister; she’s actually doing this out of love of her sister, who loves an army captain but was going to Sacrifice herself in a Marriage of Convenience to get the family out of the mess their brother created This convnient even more delightful the second time around, heyet it’s been so long since my first read that much of this seemed new.

This sounds like such a fun read. Escorted by Lethbridge, he sees their friendship as the perfect opportunity to ruin her reputation and punish Drelincourt for thwarting his elopement with his sister Louisa years before.

Frankly, even if you’re a die-hard Heyer fan, you can pretty much skip this. But because she insists on casting Horry as her heroine, the story becomes deplorable. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to people who don’t like period romances, but if you enjoy romance with a healthy dose of screwball comedy this might be for you. Hawkins in particular is great value and I should have been sad not to meet him.

The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer, A Review | Jane Austen’s World

Horry has two older sisters and a brother. I have read just one book by Heyer and come to hate her very name, but it was only a matter of unfullfilled expectations I expected another Austen and found romance, which I loathe. Even a smart footman has a voice of his own for his line or two, sounding like a young man on the make and trying to lose a Bankside accent. When Horatia returns she doesn’t realise her husband has taken Lethbridge’s place and they begin to heyeg cards.

And the audio was in English accents supreme. This is the story of how Rule, who has unexpectedly fallen for his young wife, goes about convincing her to fall for him.

The voice that Richard Armitage gives her is a contralto one, which feels just right, and he manages the hesitation and stammering perfectly to make her a rather moving as well as a loveable heroine.

But in TCM he really hit his stride. Check geeorgette library first. The scenes with her are just painful you want to take a shotgun to the earl but other than that, it’s great fun, and the Georgian era is beautifully evoked. In some instances, I will remove links from comments as ocnvenient.
