Weekly Geeks: A Quote A Day - Georgette Heyer #3


Another of my favorite Heyer romances is These Old Shades. It is amusing throughout, with a very touching ending--I always tear up when I read it. Here we have Leonie talking to the Duke of Avon after her unsuccessful kidnapping by Saint-Vire.

These Old Shades cover
"He is a fool, Monseigneur. He did not know even that I was pretending to be asleep."

"According to you, my infant, the world is peopled by fools. I believe you have reason."

I'm sure this is blasphemy, but I'd read Georgette Heyer over Jane Austen any day.


  1. Heyer over Austen, well that is blasphemy...and I will check out the book ;)

  2. Hehe... I hope you do get a chance to try out Heyer. The quotes I'm using this week are from my Heyer "favorites." In my opinion, you can't go wrong with any of them!
