For Arabella Tallant, our heroine, is not exactly like that. Once upon a time, in a sheltered and remote Yorkshire village, there lived the Tallant family, of which Arabella was the eldest and prettiest daughter. So despite Arabella’s and her father’s Arabella is one of the more charming and funny Georgette Heyer books that I’ve read, with a major plus in the form of one of my favorite Heyer book boyfriends, Beaumaris.


Arabella has a rather compassionate nature, and she behaves in a most unrefined way as she rescues a stray dog, takes in an orphaned chimney sweep, and offers assistance to a woman of disreputable character. To ask other readers questions about Arabellaplease sign up.

He was overly rich, spoiled and petted by society, and a great, great deal like Mr. Beaumaris because she does such an incredible job of taking us through his path to love. I still love this cover, even though Arabella is a brunette. The story is unique enouugh to be one of Heyer’s best on it’s own. Never mind this book’s imperfections, it is lovely.

I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. A Most Unlikely Duke. Arabella by Georgette Heyer. Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity.

I wish Arabella had trusted Beaumaris sooner and come to her senses before things got that far. The Tallant family are a delight.

In the end, having fallen for both protagonists, I was more than satisfied by the end. Despite the heroine being beautiful in that One of the sweetest aspects of the book, I think, is that Mr. This time this is the edition I read! The flowerly language seems to taper off by the end.

It was chapter three before Arabella left for London and I must confess I would have liked it to be a couple of more. It is hilarious to see how all those fortune-hunting families are devastated when the Nonpareil gives all his attention to Arabella.

Once they arrive, she reveals that she is not a wealthy woman, he reveals that he knew all along and that he went to visit her family. Arabella knows nothing about men, London society and all the rules that seem to be essential for the respectable people she meets.
