Frederica is a Regency romance novel by Georgette Heyer. The story is set in The plot is typical of several later Heyer romances in counterpointing the. After reading Frederica I thanked my lucky stars that Georgette Heyer was such a prolific writer and that she lived a long life. She wrote over I am coming to Heyer in the opposite way, after reading countless romances, including many Regencies. Frederica is the first book I have read by Georgette.

What with his keen mind for mechanics and his wanting to try things out for himself he pulls his whole family and Cousin Alverstoke into his troubles. But you’re trying to break us apart. He was a great character and had really good scenes.

Frederica (Regency Romances): Georgette Heyer: : Books

Another audio version is narrated by Kate Reading, which might suit the female roles better. Ships from and sold by Amazon. Cynical to the core, he is skeptical when he meets Frederica, the charming head of the orphaned Merrivale clan. Jessamy, concealing his chagrin at being allowed so little share of the nursing I adored this book. When the Marquess visits Frederica’s rented house in an unsophisticated neighborhood, he meets Frederica, a twenty-four-year-old spinster in charge of nineteen-year-old Charis, sixteen-year-old Jessamy, and twelve-year-old Felix.


This is by far my favorite of Georgette Heyer novels. You and me should go together to the foundry!!!! The Marquis would normally toss off such poor relations, but when he meets them he’s charmed despite himself and impressed by the gorgeous young Charis.

I’m afraid I’m going to gush all over this review, but I’ll do my best to keep this coherent. Teorgette trivia or quizzes yet. Whoever told me I’d love Frederica?

G Rating a few swears and nothing else. One of the better realized Heyers. He is a hound, not a collie; and what I told you was not Barcelona, but Baluchistan!

Except that part where he becomes a better man or whatever?

Her brothers are spot on though! This is a delightful book.

It was interesting what stood out for me as a result. No, not that one.

And I wish Frederica had realized how Alverstoke felt for her, I think it would have been more fun if she had. Jessamy has a large dog, Lufra the infamous “Baluchistan Hound” plays a fun role in several scenes. It was so clever, brilliant, touching, entertaining and plain good FUN! Is Alverstoke brilliant or what! The Marquis is initially reluctant but agrees to sponsor the Merriville ladies out of mischief, mostly to annoy his sister Louisa who had been demanding similar assistance to launch her own daughter into society.


ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. There’s lots of family dynamics in this story, which I find very appealing when well done and this is exceptionally done.

Desert Isle Keeper

Felix who is obsessed with steam technology and stows away aboard a steam ship and then aboard a hot air balloon and geogrette Alverstoke that it’s an amazing treat for Alverstoke to visit a foundry that uses steam technology.

But maybe that’s just a modern sensibility This is really one of my very favourite Heyers I love most of them. The reason why Alverstoke agreed to sponsor the Merrivales to whom he is not related at all, and only connected through two marriages, as he points outis a major hoot in itself.

Not just the dandies, but people like Alverstoke, who seem to treat tying their cravat with High Church reverence. The characters are vibrant and I enjoyed the pacing and the way that Alverstoke and Frederic gradually came to know each other better and managed their feelings for one another.
