The Nonesuch

# UL6432 Paperback, 337 pages; 2009 (1962)
Currently Unavailable
When Sir Waldo Hawkridge arrives in Yorkshire to inspect his new country estate, his presence sets the entire county atwitter... as is wont to happen when a handsome, wealthy, accomplished bachelor moves in. Known throughout London as "the Nonesuch," his athletic prowess and flawless fashion are the envy of all the men, while the local ladies are enchanted by his good looks and charm. Determined to land a titled husband, young heiress Tiffany Wield - whose legendary beauty and hot temper are unrivaled - sets her cap both at Sir Waldo and his handsome young cousin. But when the Nonesuch falls for Ancilla Trent, Tiffany's elegant and eminently practical chaperone, everyone (including Ancilla) is in for a surprise! As Georgette Heyer's Regency novels go, The Nonesuch is a subtler, gentler romance than some: Sir Waldo is a philanthropist, not a rake, and twenty-six-year-old Ancilla is an "older," wiser heroine. But Heyer's sharp eye for societal nonsense and lighthearted shenanigans is firmly in place! (KG)
