"Georgette Heyer is unbeatable!"

Sunday Telegraph

For her, he would do anything...Plainspoken country gentleman Philip Jettan won't bother with a powdered wig, high heels, and fashionable lace cuffs, until he discovers that his lovely neighbor is enamored with a sophisticated man-about-town...But what is it that she really wants? Cleone Charter sends her suitor Philip away to get some town polish, and he comes back with powder, patches, and all the manners of a seasoned rake. Does Cleone now have exactly the kind of man she's always wanted, or was her insistence on Philip's remarkable transformation a terrible mistake? What readers say:

"Charming, charming, charming. And highly readable!"

"Witty dialogue and well-developed storylines—even Jane Austen could do no better."

"Scintillating and very human love story by an author of exceptional talents."

"Ms. Heyer's effervescent wit and obvious ability to tell a good and humorous story is already evident, making Powder and Patch an enjoyable and worthwhile read."

"This story sparkles with witty dialogue and wonderful descriptions of costumes and festivities of the 1700s. I re-read it at least once a year and I enjoy it as much as the first time, again and again!"
