An altogether unsatisfactory arrangement
After their father's death, Miss Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine travel to London to meet their guardian, Lord Worth, expecting an elderly gentleman. To their surprise and utter disgust, their guardian is not much older than they are, doesn't want the office of guardian any more than they want him, and is determined to thwart all their interests and return them to the country.
With altogether too many complications
But when Miss Taverner and Peregrine begin to move in the highest social circles, Lord Worth cannot help but entangle himself with his adventuresome wards...
What Reviewers Say About Regency Buck:
"Georgette Heyer is unbeatable."
"Light and frothy, in the vein of the author's other Regency novels, this follows the fortunes of Miss Judith Taverner and her brother, Sir Peregrine. A good introduction to Heyer's period stories..."
"Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen."
What Readers Say About Regency Buck:
"A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds"
Katie Fenton, Daily Telegraph
"The conversation sparkles, the characters are real, and the descriptions stand before you. Can't miss it."
"It makes you believe in love all over again."
"Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire too."

Georgette was a master at writing romances; her story lines were elegant with a touch of humor. Hard to find any romance authors today who don’t feel the need to include an explicit bedroom scene or write at a sappy twelve-year-old level.
I loved this book so much it was so intriguing and kept me wondering up until the last chapter. Also it was really great because it helps fill in some missing pieces between The Devils Cub and The Infamous Army. This is now one of my favorite Heyer novels.
Almost my fav
This is my # 2 favorite Heyer book. It's got intrigue and humor.
