The Black Moth (1921) is a Georgian era romance book by the British author Georgette Heyer, set around 1751. Published when Heyer was nineteen, The Black Moth was her debut novel. It was based on a story she had written for her haemophiliac younger brother and published with the encouragement of her father. It was a commercial success. While modern critics have considered it a flawed work, they have observed characteristics Heyer included in her later works.
The story follows Lord Jack Carstares, an English nobleman who becomes a highwayman after taking the blame during a cheating scandal years before. One day, he rescues Miss Diana Beauleigh when she is almost abducted by the Duke of Andover. Jack and Diana fall in love but his troubled past and current profession threaten their happiness.
