Heyer Mania

These Old Shades (Alastair, #1)These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Heyer, and this book - starring a devilish English Duke and the French ingénue Leonie - is funny, witty, and romantic. The Duke reminds me of the Scarlet Pimpernel, with the same velvet-draped steel and rakish nature disguising a heart of gold.

It all begins when the Duke of Avon buys a red-headed urchin to be his page, and soon realizes that the boy holds the key to getting revenge on an old enemy.
