All Heyer books are good but Black Sheep falls in a certain group I think are excellent (along with Grand Sophy, Bath Tangle, Frederica and others). Black Sheep is a little different in that the love comes earlier - the difficulty is how it will work out. The ending is a little surprising and very enjoyable.

A most entertaining and enjoyable book, beautifully narrated by a most distinguished actress who brought each different character to life so well. It was easy to imagine the various scenes, laugh at the idiosyncrasies of the Regency fops and the rigid rules of society. Typical Heyer humour perfectly expressed.

We've listened to every one of Georgette Heyer's audio books and loved them all. We loved all the narrators, each which her/his own flavour (Eve Matheson being the chosen favourite) but this is first time we felt the novel has lost a lot because of the choice of ther narrator(Barbara Leigh Hunt). Her naturally mature, very polished and highly trained voice, misses out on Heyer's subtle social humour, reducing some characters to unconvincing caricatures. There's also a very marked tongue-tripping which makes for a slightly uncomfortable listening.
Even so, I would recommend this as one of Heyer's more engaging novels.

I loved this book - one of her best. It really lifted my mood as it's witty, observant and very entertaining!
Some previous reviewers have said that they though that the narrator stumbled a bit, and that her voice was too mature to make the younger characters believable. I didn't find this the case at all and will look out other books she's done as I thought she interpreted the this one beautifully.

I don’t remember Abigail Wendover being quite so Prosy when I read the book. Perhaps it was the narrator who was so grating I gave up a 1/4 of the way through. She made all the characters sound like they were in their dotage except for Fanny.
Another Georgette light hearted novel. Made me laugh. Very enjoyable. Good characters. Voices clear and understandable.
