HEYER, G.: Convenient Marriage (The) (Abridged)

Horatia Winwood is the youngest and the least attractive of the three Winwood sisters. She also has a stammer. But when the enigmatic and eminently eligible Earl of Rule offers for her oldest sister’s hand—a match that makes financial and social sense, but would break her heart—it is Horatia who takes matters into her own impetuous hands. Can she save her family’s fortune? Or is she courting disaster? Witty, charming, elegant and always delightful, Georgette Heyer—the undisputed Queen of Regency Romance—brings the whole period to life with deft precision and glorious characters.
