Description

Enjoy one of only two Heyer Gothic Regency romances.

"Miss Heyer serves up a very different sort of tale in the same period setting, nothing less than a full-fledged Gothic. And a very expert job she does of it, too, complete with a remote and forbidding country house, screams in the night, dark hints of something best left unmentioned? nicely leavened with wit, romance, and wonderful period slang."-Publishers Weekly

A surprising invitationKate Malvern is rescued from penury by her aunt Minerva, who brings her to stay at Staplewood. But the household is strange and strained?Kate's uncle lives in his own private wing, and her handsome, moody cousin Torquil lives in another.

A dark family secretAs bizarre events unfold and Kate begins to question the reasons for her aunt's unexpected generosity, she has no one to confide in but her cousin Philip. Sympathetic though he may appear, will he tell her what she most needs to know... before it's too late?

What readers say:"Flawless gothic romance."

"A dark and different Regency romance."

"Cousin Kate remains a classic Heyer study of character and Regency attitudes, and boasts a wonderfully warm and generous heroine who it is impossible to dislike and one of Heyer's most pleasant and agreeable heroes."

"A superior Georgette Heyer work; a bit darker and more serious than most of her other books, but as always there is the fast wit and a happy ending."

      • bioText: Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.
        Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.

Cousin Kate
fullDescription

Enjoy one of only two Heyer Gothic Regency romances.

"Miss Heyer serves up a very different sort of tale in the same period setting, nothing less than a full-fledged Gothic. And a very expert job she does of it, too, complete with a remote and forbidding country house, screams in the night, dark hints of something best left unmentioned? nicely leavened with wit, romance, and wonderful period slang."-Publishers Weekly

A surprising invitation
Kate Malvern is rescued from penury by her aunt Minerva, who brings her to stay at Staplewood. But the household is strange and strained?Kate's uncle lives in his own private wing, and her handsome, moody cousin Torquil lives in another.

A dark family secret
As bizarre events unfold and Kate begins to question the reasons for her aunt's unexpected generosity, she has no one to confide in but her cousin Philip. Sympathetic though he may appear, will he tell her what she most needs to know... before it's too late?

What readers say:
"Flawless gothic romance."

"A dark and different Regency romance."

"Cousin Kate remains a classic Heyer study of character and Regency attitudes, and boasts a wonderfully warm and generous heroine who it is impossible to dislike and one of Heyer's most pleasant and agreeable heroes."

"A superior Georgette Heyer work; a bit darker and more serious than most of her other books, but as always there is the fast wit and a happy ending."
