I am one of those who steered clear of Georgette Heyer for years even though I heard the comparisons to Jane Austen I was afraid they were formulaic romances To my surprise it wasn't what I feared all those years and proved that breaking out of one's reading comfort zone can be uite rewarding This was made enjoyable getting to read this along with Sabrina who also had some of the same feelings regarding Heyer and both of us ended up enjoying it I was aware Heyer was famous or some may say infamous for her Regency cant I admit to being a bit intimidated with the thought of tackling this period slang did you know there are about 30 words just for dimwitted So to prepare I bookmarked several websites and had the book Georgette Heyer's Regency World at the ready At first it was a little difficult and distracting trying to figure out the meaning but the patient help I received from fellow GR friends was invaluable Their input made it much fun allowing me to relax stop worrying and make it of a game instead Our heroine Venetia then twenty two perilously near to being on the shelf is uite modern not only for the Regency period but for the 1950's when this was originally written She is unconventional with her free thoughts and expressions but at the same time not challenging her family to take care of their responsibilities I did find her conveniently too naive at times for purposes of the story Then we have our hero Damarel that dastardly bad boy and rake or using Regency cant a rip He doesn't hide who he is or his past from Venetia even using his reputation to his advantage at times As he finds himself falling for Venetia he wins over the reader too How can one resist lines like this What I regret I can never undo for the gods don’t annihilate space or time or transform such a man as I am into one worthy to be your husbandThe accolades for Heyer's historical detail are justified Daily life settings clothing and manners are richly painted giving a clear picture of the genteel decorous yet rigid Regency society She also presents the limited expectations for women in an unapologetic yet realistic way Everything is laced with wit and humor my case is clearly past remedy and I've nothing to do but decide whether to be an aunt to Conway's children or a mother to Edward's and I have a lowering presentiment that Edward's children will be dreadfully dull poor little thingsThere are no cardboard cutout characters they are multi layered full of life whether you hate them love them laugh at them or barely tolerate them Venetia's suitors or men in waiting as I came to think of them Edward Yardley and Oswald Denny had me laughing with their pursuit and dreams of gallantry I grew to appreciate Aubrey her younger brother and how he coped with being lame in a time when such imperfections were unacceptable shunned and shamed by many Master Aubrey’s hatred of his disability and his passionate desire to show himself as hearty and as independent as his fortunate contemporariesHeyer cleverly puts all these people together some we never even meet some we only briefly meet and some we never expect to meet yet they are all important to putting the final picture together There is no surprise about how things will end the fun is how they get to happily ever after including an expected twist I didn't see coming I loved the endearments they called each other she called him The Wicked Baron and he called her My Dear Delight This was my first brush with Heyer and I don't plan on it being my last Will I judge all her others against this one I hope not but Damarel will be hard to top so only time will tell On that note I'll let Damarel end this review and prove why he is not easily forgottenWhen you smile at me like that it’s all holiday with me

Georgette Heyer ´ 2 Summary

O han logrado conuistar su corazón Por suerte o por desgracia todo cambia cuando el libertino y supuestamente depravado lord Damerel se instala en una propiedad vecina Entre él y Venetia nacerán sentimientos a los ue se opondr. Yorkshire 1818WARNING Spoilers gushing swooning uoting and rose petal strewing ahead ; no orgies though I promise read on safely PO Venetia Thou hast utterly captured my soul A rose by any other name would smell as sweetAnd a Damerel by any other name would be just as swoon worthy I will be calm I will be mistress of myselfBecause my name is Venetia and I'm one of the most wonderful heroines in all literature I have lived one of the dreamiest romances possible and have remained perfectly poised and ladylike through the whole thing without seeming aloof or uninterested I am simply awesome that is all I am sorry that no one else is ever going to have a romance as breathtakingly beautiful as mine ; I am determined that nothing but the deepest love could ever induce me into matrimonyOK Anne I know Venetia has completely addled your brain but there is no need to start uoting classic literature like some foolish bluestocking You'll never be able to pull it off as swiftly as Damerel and Venetia NOTHING COULD EVER COMPARE TO DAMEREL AND VENETIA Yes I know I know I use NS gifs WAY TOO MUCH But I don't CARE It's PERFECT here #sorrynotsorryuite simply this book is exuisitely sublime No amount of words to describe its peaceful uiet beauty and entrancing depth would ever be sufficient This is a masterpiece of the first order Possibly Heyer's best novel in terms of perfectly blended substance and romanticism IJustLoveItEveryone had been telling me to read this for ages I knew I would love it and was so excited to read it that a part of me did not want to read it too soon becauseonce you read it for the first time you'll never read it again for the first time Sure re reads are sometimes even better but they're not the same You already know just how swoony Damerel really is when you re read it ; Fair Fatality you are the most unusual female I have encountered in all my thirty eight years finally Anne is uoting the right bookIn what is assuredly the most famous “first encounter” scene in all of Heyer’s books a returning Lord Damerel looking devilishly handsome on his horse stumbles upon Venetia picking blackberries on his estate grounds and immediately just starts throwing out uotes and kissing her ruthlessly you know like any normal landlord would do And Venetia She uotes back I kid you not this girl may be inexperienced but she knows what’s up You want to act like a cad Well so be it 'your uotations don’t make your advances a whit acceptable to me – and they don’t deceive me into thinking you anything but a pestilent complete knave'And Damerel is all OH MY GOSH SHE UOTES BACK SHE UNDERSTANDS SHE’S THE ONE Thus it begins my friends One of the most beautiful romances I’ve ever read solidly grounded on friendship mutual understanding and true love ”’Or don’t you know how beautiful you are’‘Yes’ replied Venetia taking the wind out of his sails ’Item two lips indifferent red – ‘ ‘Oh no you’re uite out and have gone to the wrong poet besides They look like rosebuds filled with snow’”Aren’t they something What I wouldn’t give for such an encounter when I go blackberry picking Maybe I should try trespassing on some hot guy’s property ; From that first meeting it is obvious that Damerel and Venetia are kindred spirits and that probably no one else will understand them Venetia may be “on the shelf” sheltered in the country inexperienced and optimistic but she ain’t dumb She’s not a chit who can’t tell love apart from attraction or who is likely to have her head turned just because some swoony hot lord uotes poetry to her and calls her his “dear delight” No She falls for Damerel because he’s her soulmate and she has sense enough to recognize that Never mind that he’s the rakest rake in England with a shocking past of wild orgies and seducing married women or that he’s up to his eyeballs in debts WHO CARES VENETIA HAS FOUND A FRIEND A real friendAnd no one understands No one gets it They all think Venetia is going to have her heart broken that she doesn’t understand what Damerel is up to that she’s too good and innocent to be with him They warn her and counsel her and beg her to stay away from him yet they never once ask her what she feels or what she thinks about him If only they knew how alike they are and what good jokes they share “OMG YOU’VE JUST HAD THE MOST DIVERTING THOUGHT”Their only ally is Venetia’s hilarious younger brother Aubrey a smart and sassy scholarly boy who prefers books to people see People who prefer books usually understand people better We know and who had wonderfully good scenes and witty lines as sharp as rapiersThe first part of the book passes by uietly with autumn settling in and Damerel and Venetia being wrapped up in each other being the best of friends and accomplices Damerel takes to calling Venetia his “dear delight” his “fair fatality” “Admir'd Venetia” and other similar heart melting nicknames he keeps telling her she is a beautiful desirable creature and that he wouldn’t at all mind kissing her again and well everything is just so sigh worthy that you never want it to end ”’he should have taken you in his arms like this and not as though he were a bear bent on hugging you to death Nor am I in favour of dabbing kisses all over a girl’s face If you cannot persuade her by a ruse to look up you should make her do so with a hand under her chin – thus my dear delight’”BUT THEN MRS SCORRIER ENTERS THE PICTURE AND UTTERLY RUINS EVERYTHING She meddles she disturbs everything at Undershaw she insults Venetia and she drives everybody batty I will be honest the bits about her and her interference in the house were pretty boring and maybe a bit too long but mostly they were infuriating She was intolerable But her arrival is also a catalyst that strikes up a series of unforeseen twists and turns and the second half of the book is definitely fast paced and surprising than the first Having been pushed to her limits by Mrs S Venetia declares her intention of setting up house in London which unwittingly prompts Damerel into a most moving love declaration although interrupted by Aubrey Aubrey interruption # 1 of about 5000 but that leaves you swooning nonetheless ”’You call me your friend but I never called you mine and never shall You remained and always will a beautiful desirable creature’”Ooooh if only Aubrey hadn’t come in at that moment And if Venetia’s uncle had never come to Yorkshire How things would have been different But as it is the aforementioned people DID meddle and in one of the most poignant heart breaking scenes I’ve ever read in any romance novel Damerel suddenly decides to act like the noblest of noble knights and in so doing breaks Venetia’s heart and mine and his own ”’Well – thus ends a charming autumn idyll eh’”I just need to give Venetia a big hug I was so SHOCKED so SPEECHLESS when I read that that I basically dropped my book and sat there gaping for ages OH DAMEREL YOU INFURIATING DARLING HOW COULD YOUPoor Venetia goes to London with her heart sunk to the lowest depths of despair but still she’s no fool and knows something must have happened to make Damerel suddenly change his mind when she had been so sure of his love She just doesn’t know what But oh when she finds outoh when she finds out Damerel better WATCH IT Oh she ain’t gonna let him get away with his darned newfound chilvalry OH HECK NO HE BETTER START STREWING THOSE BLASTED ROSE PETALSALL THE WAY TO YORKSHIRE Venetia bursts into Damerel’s dining room while he is uietly intoxicating himself Damerel OH GOD NO this is the actual line P P Venetia OH GOD YES Why do you have to be drunk just now Damerel ASJFKJLKJLK VENETIA VENETIA IT’S VENETIA VEEEEEENEEEEETIIIIIAAAAAAApassionate kissing fond embraces insert disgusting sounds here
