The Corinthian (Beau Wyndham) (1940)
Another wonderful Regency romance by the undisputed queen of historical novelists.
The only question which hangs over the life of Sir Richard Wyndham, notable whip, dandy and Corinthian, is one of marriage. On the eve of making the most momentous decision of his life, he is on his way home, a little worse for drink, when he chances upon a beautiful young fugitive climbing out of a window by means of knotted sheets - and so finds a perfect opportunity for his own escape.
The Corinthian has everything that Georgette Heyer's devoted readership came to expect and that made her one of the most popular novelists of her day, and still adored by a huge audience.
