From the Back Cover
"Sparkling" -Independent on Sunday
A most unusual hero
Freddy is immensely rich, of course, and not bad-looking, but he's mild-mannered, a bit hapless-not anything like his virile, handsome, rakish cousin Jack?
A heroine in a difficult situation
Young Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible and eccentric guardian-provided she marries one of his great-nephews?
A sham betrothal
No sooner does Kitty arrive in London then the race for her hand begins, but between confirmed rakes and bumbling affections, Kitty needs a daring scheme?
"Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances."
"Triumphantly good?Georgette Heyer is unbeatable."
"My favourite historical novelist." -Margaret Drabble
Georgette Heyer is the author of over fifty books and one of the best-known and best-loved historical novelists. She was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and extraordinary plots and characterizations.

As usual, the author does a super job on the language and manners of the time. It's a funny and sweet story with a very satisfying ending, although it takes our Kitty a long time to overcome obstacles and achieve her desired end.
Very entertaining and well done.
The last thing on the Honorable Frederick Standen's mind is marriage, until is uncle's ward Miss Catherine Charing talks him into a pretend engagement. The kind and amiable Freddy becomes a victim of Kitty's understandable desire to escape her unexciting country life "for just a little while". Many complications ensue on this merry adventure before all works out in the end.
