Georgette Heyer needs no introduction to her many fans. Her books are reminiscent of Jane Austen's but in a lighter vein. Powder and Patch is the perfect way to be introduced to her novels if she is a new author for you. She usually sets her novels in the Regency period, but sometimes she ventures into the previous era of powdered wigs and patches. Most of the stories here are set in the Georgian period but they are very much Heyer stories. Like Austen, she believes that an unmarried man, possessed of a good fortune, must be in needs of a wife.
