Having set the stage for inevitable misunderstandings between this arrogant Romeo and hotheaded Juliet, Heyer then peoples it with unforgettable secondary characters. Arabella's warm heart and strong principles lead her to befriend such unsavory types as an abused apprentice to a chimney sweep, a stray dog, and a fallen woman happily known as "Leaky Peg"--all of whom she foists on the reluctant but gallant Mr. Beaumaris. Arabella is an intelligent, witty romp--both a romance with a hearty sense of humor and a historical novel that remains true to the times it depicts. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I enjoy this book but it's not one of Heyer's that I can read over and over again. The premise of the book is based on a lie told by the heroine, which makes it an uncomfortable... Read morePublished 2 months ago by amtmcm
