"Sparkling" —Independent on Sunday

"A literary bubble bath.… Take a delightful and frothy dip among the gayer aspects of the author's favorite and well worked Regency period." —Sunday Tribune

Almost an heiress

Country-bred, spirited Kitty Charings is on the brink of inheriting a fortune from her eccentric guardian—provided that she marries one of his grand–nephews. Kitty has spent her secluded life pining for the handsome, rakish Jack, who is well aware of her attachment.

A plan of her own

But when Jack fails to respond to his great–uncle's ultimatum, Kitty hatches a strategy of her own—a counterfeit betrothal to mild–mannered Freddy Standen (who neither needs nor wants the money).

A most unlikely hero

And when Kitty's generous heart leads to all sorts of unintended troubles, there is only one man who can rescue her from more than one dreadful fix, pick up the pieces of her plotting, and, in the process, her heart.…

"Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances." —Amazon.co.uk

The performance of this audiobook was absolutely fantastic!! Phyllida Nash managed to give each character such personality through her many voices. I actually started to read this book a while ago but put it down and then listened to the audiobook instead and was way more engaged.

The story itself is not bad - a bit different than her other books as the main male lead is not as clever as most of Heyer's others, or at least he says so, and you find out that he's pretty great in his own way. I didn't really like the main girl, Kitty, but by the end she was okay. I did like that there were a lot of characters, although it was pretty predictable from the beginning what was going to happen. Heyer put a lot of random details into this book, so it's nice for getting a good picture of what it was actually like to live during the Regency period for the upper and middle class.

I definitely recommend listening to this one over reading it, because it was just so well done.
