The only question which hangs over the life of Sir Richard Wyndham, notable whip, dandy and Corinthian, is one of marriage. On the eve of making the most momentous decision of his life, he is on his way home, a little worse for drink, when he chances upon a beautiful young fugitive climbing out of a window by means of knotted sheets - and so finds a perfect opportunity for his own escape.

The Corinthian has eveything that Georgette Heyer's devoted readership came to expect and that made her one of the most popular novelists of her day, and still adored by a huge audience.

Very good! Not much to say about this one, except for the fact that it kept reminding me of Poldark season 1 when Ross first meets Demelza and she's dressed like a boy. :)

This is my favourite Georgette Heyer book that I've read so far. I was laughing the whole time. The main characters are really funny and witty. Read this if you're looking for a light read. I read it in a day.

The story is completely unbelivable but it is laugh out loud funny - who needs plausibility?
