Publisher's Summary

It is in regrettable circumstances that beautiful Judith Taverner and her brother Peregrine first meet Julian St John Audley. The man, they both agree, is an insufferably arrogant dandy. But unfortunately for them, he's also the Fifth Earl of Worth, a friend of the Regent and, their legal guardian.

Fantastic Performance

June Barrie does a great rendition of the characters of this book. She as easily portrays the dry argumentative Lord Worth as she does the willful beautiful Judith. And the growing suspense is fabulous to listen to.

Early Heyer and it shows

Any additional comments?

I love just about every Georgette Heyer novel I have in audio form, and return to them over and over. Regency Buck was (I believe) Heyer's first foray into the Regency era, and it's interesting to see her laying the groundwork for the many novels that followed and created the Regency Romance genre. All the tropes that come to signify the genre are here: Brighton, the Pavillion, the Prince Regent, Beau Brummell, curricle races, Gentleman Jackson and boxing, the social restrictions placed on women, fabulous wealth and high titles, a glowering and unapproachable hero and a feisty heroine.

She does, however, get a little carried away with the details (you will never, ever hear a longer or more obsessive description of the interior of the Brighton Pavillion!), displaying all her amazing research, and after this novel she backs away from using important historical figures of the age as significant characters. There's an odd, "Mary Sue" feeling to heroine Judith Taverner, who is unbelievably rich, very attractive, unusually liberated, a "notable whip," AND who is admired by the Beau and the Regent AND a couple of the Royal Dukes.

The Gothic sinister-mystery element is kind of fun, and something that Heyer's later Regencies don't have as much of. It's an enjoyable enough tale, nicely narrated by June Barrie. It can't have been easy to lend life to the very-long sections about the roads between London and Brighton, boxing matches, or the aforementioned architectural detail!

Possibly the best....

This, in my humble opinion, is the very best of all Georgette Heyer's Regency novels. It has everything: a spirited and beautiful heroine (of course), a powerful and enigmatic nobleman who has control of her and her fortune, intrigue, humour and an abundance of historical detail. This brief description does not do justice to the depth of this novel. It is not a frivolous romance but rather a fascinating and richly drawn window into Regency England

All her books are excellent but other favorites include The Devil's Cub (a favourite of PD James' apparently from an interview on Radio 4!), Faro's Daughter, and Venetia. I hope these are all available on Audible by the time I finish listening to the many that are!

Regency Buck

This is one of my all time favourites and it was a delight to have someone narrate who understood the Characters and brought them to life. Please can June read some of the other books by Georgette Heyer such as These Old Shades which was such a let down that I could not listen to it.

Entertaining and amusing

I'd read this novel as a child but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story and revisiting some cherished characters and plot lines. The reader is adept at voices, reads amusingly and conveys just the right tone of hauteur for our dashing hero. Well recommended!
