The Black Moth




A wonderful tale of romance and adventure set in Heyer's Regency England.

Jack Carstares, the disgraced Earl of Wyncham, left England seven long years ago, sacrificing his honour for that of his brother when he was accused of cheating at cards. Now he is back, roaming his beloved South Country in the disguise of a highwayman. Not long after his return, he encounters his old adversary, the libertine Duke of Andover, just in time to dispute at the point of his sword the attempted abduction of a society beauty. But foiled once, the 'Black Moth' has no intention of failing again...

Praise for The Black Moth

My favourite historical novelist -- stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours.

Margaret Drabble

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.

Katie Fforde

A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds.
