Ust made it better I think it is because I properly appreciate Sir Richard Wyndham now He has all the charms of the usual Heyer Hero without their defects aka an eyeor the petticoat line He has riends has a believable sense of humor and in general is uite the romantic alverstoke and general is uite the romantic Alverstoke and may want to watch outI ve ound a new Heyer Hero Favorite I also liked Pen a lot this time round 2015Maybe in my top 7 Best Heyer Novels I love the combination of humor romance and mystery Pen isn t always my avorite but Sir Richard Wyndham is terrific Truly a must read or Heyer lovers This is one I love own love that I own and re read reuently I ve given that I own and re read reuently I ve given an A No Strings Attached for narration and Bor content at AAR so probably nearer 5 stars than 4One of the best things about listening to new audio versions of older books is becoming reacuainted with stories I read many years ago than I care to count Georgette Heyer s The Corinthian is not a title I ve re read over the years so coming back to it in audio was almost like experiencing a new book And a terrific experience it wasThe story is one with which any regular Regency reader is probably very Fancy Strut familiar an older sophisticated and somewhat ennui laden man about town becomes accidentally embroiled in a hare brained scheme perpetrated by a youngeremale One thing leads to another in the way of a cartoon snowball rolling down a mountainside and the couple ends up in the middle of all sorts of madness and mayhem while alling in loveThat s pretty much the plot of The Corinthian with laughs obviously Handsome and extremely wealthy twenty nine year old Sir Richard Wyndham is constantly pressured by his amily to hasten his betrothal to the lovely demure and very proper Honourable Melissa Brandon who they keep telling him will make him the perfect wife Unable to postpone the inevitable any longer and intending to propose the next day Richard goes out and gets drunk and on the way home stops to assist a young lad climbing out of a window The boy turns out naturally to be a very Unbreathed Memories feminine armful Miss Penelope Creed Penelope or Pen is running awayrom her aunt and uncle to escape their plot to marry her to her ish aced cousin to keep Her Large Dowry In large dowry in Graduates in Wonderland: The International Misadventures of Two (Almost) Adults familyPen tells Richard she owns a house in Somerset and intends to make her way there to seek the help of a childhoodriend She is about to turn and leave but Richard is not uite drunk enough A Sally Lockhart Mystery 2 for his common sense to have completely abandoned him He insists that Pen can t possibly wander the streets of London alone late at night dressed as a boy and tells her he will escort her to Somerset On their journey the pair cross paths with a jewel thief a Bow Street Runner and even a dead body and Richardinds himself having to constantly think on his I Love My Dad feet to be able to keep up with Pen s seemingly endless capacityor spinning yarns and All about Us finding trouble andinds himself having the most un he s ever had in his life The plot is airly thin it s true but as is the case with so many of Georgette Heyer s books the plot is of secondary importanc. Bing out of a window by means of knotted sheets dressed in boy's clothing lovely Penelope Creed is Noni Speaks Up fleeingrom London She is a brilliant London heires with and lavish life and a proposed marriage to her repulsive ish lipped cousin a man she loathed She has a shimmering dream of a love she had known once and lost Discovered by Sir Wyndham he can't allow her to travel to the countryside all alone so he offers himself as her protectorAnd. Sigh I ve overdosed on Georgette Heyer Regencies and now I can t tell if I m bored because this is mediocre Heyer or because I ve temporarily reached saturation point on her books The banter is witty the hero capable and charming the heroine brave and eisty and I was
