In the midsts of the North Riding of Yorkshire, Venetia has long despaired ever making a match as a recluse in her father’s country home. Lord Damarel, scandelous rake, has other ideas.

Georgette Heyer wrote Venetia relatively late in her career and Venetia’s liberated self assurance in overcoming the period’s challenging social structure reflects the era in which Heyer was writing prior to the sixties. This delightfully witty story is one of her best loved books.
