One of Heyer's best, "Masqueraders" is a gender-bending joy.,
This review is from: Masqueraders (Hardcover)
Never as popular as Georgette Heyer's classics "Regency Buck" and "These Old Shades," "Masqueraders is nevertheless one of Heyer's best. Wrapped in a frothy tangle of gender-bending siblings, highway robbery and frivolous court intrigue, this Regency romp is a triumph in the high style fans of the genre prize most. The tender center of the farce is the romance of Prudence, who must hide her woman's form and heart to protect her family, and the one man who could be worthy of her love....if he only would stop calling her "boy."

Ah...it's not a Regency romp (which is one of the things that make it somewhat different from the usual Heyer). The period is definitively mid-Georgian: hence the duels, masquerades and highwaymen read (somewhat) more naturally.
