A New York Times Bestseller!

"Georgette Heyer is the Queen of the Regency Romance. Long may she reign!" ―New York Times bestselling author LAUREN WILLIG

A reader favorite from the Queen of Regency Romance, The Grand Sophy is a utterly hilarious and completely endearing story of Sophy and the outrageous lengths she goes to solve everyone else's problems, and the surprises in store for everyone!

When Sir Horace Stanton-Lacy is ordered to South America on Diplomatic Business he parks his only daughter, Sophy, with his sister in Berkeley Square. Forward, bold, and out-spoken, Sophy sweeps in and immediately takes ton by storm.

Upon her arrival, Sophy can see that her cousins are in a sad tangle: Ceclia is in love with a poet, Charles is engaged to a dour bluestocking, her uncle is of no use at all, and the younger children are in desperate need of some fun and freedom. They all need her help and it's providential that Sophy arrives when she does.

From the Inside Flap:

When Sophy goes to stay with her cousins in Berkeley Square, she finds them in a sad tangle of affairs - some romantic and others of a more pecuniary nature. Perhaps the Grand Sophy has arrived just in time to save them.

About the Author:

The late Georgette Heyer was a very private woman. Her historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades, though she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or private life. It is known that she was born in Wimbledon in August 1902, and her first novel, The Black Moth, was published in 1921.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known also as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and they had one son together, Richard.
