""A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds."" -Kate Fenton, Daily TelegraphCelebrate the 80th birthday of Regency Romance with great books from Sourcebooks Casablanca!

"Horatia Winwood is simply helping her family"
When the Earl of Rule proposes marriage to her sister Lizzie, Horatia offers herself instead. Her sister is already in love with someone else, and Horatia is willing to sacrifice herself for her family's happiness. Everyone knows she's no beauty, but she'll do her best to keep out of the Earl's way and make him a good wife. And then the Earl's archenemy, Sir Robert, sets out to ruin her reputation...

"The Earl of Rule has found just the wife he wants"
Unbeknownst to Horatia, the Earl is enchanted by her. There's simply no way he's going to let her get into trouble. Overcoming some misguided help from Horatia's harebrained brother and a hired highwayman, the Earl routs his old enemy, and wins over his young wife, gifting her with a love that she never thought she could expect.

""Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.""-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

WHAT READERS SAY:
"I couldn't put it down, and I couldn't stop laughing!"

"The story is brilliant, and the characters are easy to fall in love with."

"I've read every novel by Georgette Heyer... this is definitely one of her best... very original and funny."

"One of Georgette Heyer's more intriguing tales."

"Horry is an adorable imp while Rule in the best 'Heyerian' tradition is a rogue turned lovely and you don't know whether to hit him or kiss him! This is a wonderful book and is one that will be read over and over again."

Review:

[T]horoughly enjoyable... I would read this book over 90% of the romances being published today. -- Vic Sandborn "Jane Austen's World" (05/01/2009)

A "Convenient Marriage" is an amusing romp through Regency England and sure to win your heart. -- Keira Gillet "Love Romance Passion" (05/14/2009)

A CONVENIENT MARRIAGE was just a wonderful book. I thought the storyline in this novel was extremely creative. -- Julie Peterson "Booking Mama" (05/18/2009)

I also just love the way Heyer writes. She takes us straight back to Regency England and I can feel it in the prose as well as in the historical details. -- Meghan Kawka "Medieval Bookworm" (05/22/2009)

The story is funny and the characters are easy to love. -- Carrie Zimmerman "The Book Girl" (05/26/2009)

The atmosphere of The "Convenient Marriage"--much like Heyer's other novels--is so rich, so detailed, so luxuriously drawn. -- Rebecca Laney "Becky's Book Reviews" (05/26/2009)

I was immediately taken with the premise of this story, and I liked the way that Heyer jumped right into the action. -- Nicole Bonia "LInus' Blanket" (05/26/2009)

[T]his book is the epitome of a comically charming period romance. -- Marie Burton "The Burton Review" (05/26/2009)

This is one of those books that you read and think to yourself 'Now why aren't men really like that?' Of course there is no shortage of Heyer's wit and charm. -- Shawn Remfry "Maymay's Memos" (05/29/2009)

If you are a fan of Jane Austen type romances - and haven't yet tried Georgette Heyer - pick this one up soon. -- Kristi Herbrand "Books and Needlepoint" (06/01/2009)

From the Publisher:

One of best-known and most beloved historical novelists captures a whole new audience in a stunning repackage.
