Strong-willed, impetuous Kitty and mild-mannered, fashionable
Freddy hardly seem like a match made in heaven; but when her Uncle
Matthew decrees that she shall marry one of her four cousins Kitty
coaxes Freddy into a mock engagement. Persuading him to take her to
London, she hopes that jealousy will induce her handsome, dashing
cousin Jack to propose. On being catapulted into the bewildering
world of London high society, naïve young Kitty soon finds herself
questioning her previous judgement. Will she maintain her childhood
passion for the charming, manipulative Jack, or will her engagement
to Freddy turn out to be real after all?
Charming and comic with plenty of romance Kati Nicholl, Daily Express Georgette Heyer deserves the recognition implicit in her inclusion in the Naxos Classic Fiction list, and Cotillion is an excellent first choice. Her funniest book, it is a plucky-innocent-reforms-rake parody, written in her prime in 1953...Heyer immersed herself in 18th-century literature, and listening to Clare Wille's reading you appreciate her gift for the right phrase. - Christina Hardyment, The Times I am so encouraged that Naxos Audiobooks is venturing into Heyerland with their first audio recording of one of Georgette Heyer's most beloved novels Cotillion, considered one of the greatest Regency romances of all time. Up until this new recording, Heyer audios could only be obtained through sources in England, at astronomical prices. This abridged audio is read by Clare Willie and contains four CD's. Hopefully, if it sells well, they will in future bring us additional unabridged versions. - Austin's Oeuvre, austenprose.wordpress.com
