Teen years favorite comes to Audible --at last!

I have loved Georgette Heyer's Regency romances since I was in junior high and now I am in 7th heaven that she is finally on Audible. If you want steamy love scenes in your romance novels, you are in the wrong place; GH novel are all formula -- handsome romantic hero, feisty but demur heroine all wrapped in the manners and mannerisms of early 19th century England. Lord gets his lady and they live happily ever after. These are stories you can give a 10 year old and not worry about the vocabulary or even the slight hint of explicit sex (or even implicit).

I love her story telling; there is lots of detail so that you really get a feel for what life was like 200 years ago. She creates the whole Regency world for you--well at least the world of the rich and titled. Her language and choice of words really makes you think you are in Regency England and unlike so many of the historical romances of today, GH really sticks to the mores and mindset of the era.

As for Sprig Muslin, the narrator is a delight and I look forward to listening to the story over and over again.

Delightful narration offsets weaker story line

This isn't one of my favorite Heyer books in print form, but it is without question my favorite of Heyer's books in audio. The narrator nails the characterization of these people *perfectly*. If you have, or have had, a teenage daughter, this is a must listen. You will laugh out loud!
