By Sophia Whitfield

Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty novels including detective fiction but she is best-known and best-loved for her historical novelists set during the Regency period.

She was 17 when her first novel The Black Moth was published in 1921. By 1932 Heyer released one thriller and one romance every year.

Previously titled Pistols for Two (published in 1960), this collection includes three of Heyer’s earliest short stories, published together in book form for the very first time. There is plenty of romance and intrigue. Rascals, lovers and heirs abound.

Two of the three new stories were written for Woman’s Journal in the 1930s and the third, Pursuit, was written for a Red Cross anthology.

Unlike Jane Austen, Heyer did not live during the Regency period yet she still managed to paint a believable picture of life during that time. Snowdrift , her first story in this collection, does this brilliantly.

You can buy the book here in Australia and here in the UK.
