Mailbox Monday~Another Georgette Heyer

Mailbox Monday Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week. And I am adding what I purchased, swapped, etc.

Not a big mailbox week for me, which is fine! Certainly the Quality could not be better, however.

From Sourcebooks to review, I recieved:

Devil's Cub by Heyer

Devil's Cub by Georgette Heyer

First issue date: 1932 Heinemann, London

US Publisher: Dutton, New York, 1966

2009 Reissue from Sourcebooks

I have been thrilled with all of Heyer's Regency reads, and even though I am so totally swamped I jumped on the chance to review this one as well for December. I am so glad that Sourcebooks has been reissuing Georgette Heyer's reads. I have decided to begin collecting them along with Jean Plaidy's reads.

Synopsis for Devils' Cub:

Devil's Cub is one of Georgette Heyer's most famous and memorable novels, featuring a dashing and wild young nobleman and the gently bred young lady in whom he finally meets his match…

Like father, like son…
Dominic Alistair, Marquis of Vidal and fiery son of the notorious Duke of Avon, has established a rakish reputation that rivals his father's, living a life of excess and indulgence. Banished to the Continent after wounding his opponent in a duel, Vidal schemes to abduct the silly aristocrat bent on seducing him into marriage and make her his mistress instead. In his rush, however, he seems to have taken the wrong woman…

A young lady of remarkable fortitude…
Determined to save her sister from ruin, virtuous Mary Challoner intercepts the Marquis's advances and throws herself into his path, hoping Vidal will release her upon realizing his error. But as the two become irrevocably entangled, Mary's reputation and future lie in the hands of a devilish rake, who finds her more fascinating every day…
