About the Author: Georgette Heyer

Georgette Heyer was a prolific historical romance and detective fiction novelist. Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth.

In 1925 she married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and he often provided basic plot outlines for her thrillers. Beginning in 1932, Heyer released one romance novel and one thriller each year.

Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity. She made no appearances, never gave an interview and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. She sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stella Martin.

Her Regencies were inspired by Jane Austen, but unlike Austen, who wrote about and for the times in which she lived, Heyer was forced to include copious information about the period so that her readers would understand the setting. While some critics thought her novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyer's greatest asset.

Heyer remains a popular and much-loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.

A los veintinueve años, el acaudalado sir Richard Wyndham está a punto de someterse a los deseos de su familia y tomar una decisión postergada durante años: casarse. Naturalmente, un acontecimiento de tal magnitud bien merece alargar la velada en el club —y el consumo de brandy— un poco más de lo habitual, por lo que, de regreso a casa por las oscuras calles del centro de Londres, cuando ve a una chica descolgándose de una ventana con una cuerda hecha de sábanas, sir Richard no sabe si se trata de algo real o de una visión producto de sus excesos. La duda se disipa en un instante cuando Penelope Creed, una jovencita que también huye de un inminente matrimonio impuesto, cae literalmente en sus brazos. Así, la oportuna coincidencia de intereses lleva a los protagonistas de tan azaroso encuentro a emprender una improvisada fuga, en la que el experto vividor y la joven rebelde compartirán un sinfín de aventuras y descubrirán sentimientos extraordinarios que darán un sorprendente vuelco a sus vidas.
