Reader's note

This beautiful 1957 edition of Georgette Heyer's Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle is another fantastic novel from the supreme queen of the Regency romance novel. Sylvester, Duke of Salford, seeking with unconscious arrogance a bride of such birth, beauty, and elegance as should make her worthy of the honour of becoming his Duchess, posted into Wiltshire to inspect the Hon. Phoebe Marlow. He was unaware of having forgotten a tongue-tied girl without beauty of elegance to recommend her; he did not know that, as a Lady of Quality, she has written a scandalous novel in which he figures unmistakably as the villain; least of all did he anticipate that the prospect of receiving an offer of marriage from him would drive Miss Marlow to take the extreme step of flying from her home to escape what she thought a horrid life.
