It was indisputably love at first sight. But Victoria Lyndon was merely the teenaged daughter of a vicar. . .while Robert Kemble was the dashing young earl of Macclesfield. Surely what their meddlesome fathers insisted must have been true-that he was a reckless seducer determined to destroy her innocence. . . and she was a shameless fortune hunter. So it most certainly was for the best when their plans to elope went hopelessly awry. Even after a seven-year separation, Victoria-now a governess-still leaves Robert breathless. But how could he ever again trust the raven-haired deceiver who had shattered his soul? And Victoria could never give her heart a second time to the cad who so callously trampled on it the first. But a passion fated will not be denied, and vows of love yearn to be kept. . . even when one promises the moon.

Brighter than the Sun Large-Format Edition (Magazine Style) The novel takes us into the twilight between nuclear war and an attempt to prevent it. In the shadow, a 'limited' holocaust unfolds, so extensive in consequences, that the past no longer applies. Here a quiet searching begins for what is ultimately real, for something that goes deeper than the conventions. In the contrast with tragedy, a multi-threaded romance develops that encompasses five families; two Russian, one Canadian, one Japanese, and one American. Their experiences, aspirations, struggles and stories take us on a voyage across fifteen time zones, three contrasting cultures, in a humanist landscape that is constantly changing. The protagonists' Initial involvements with rescue efforts trail out into a chance to build a New World for themselves with a new life in Russia. However, struggling for justice, the protagonists face new challenges, hidden conspiracies, and ultimately tragedies that force them have to flee political persecutions in the continuing small-minded world. Once more, they need to start all over again. But each time they start anew, they start from a higher basis with triumphs from the depth of their growing love that becomes ever-brighter. In the course of their developing humanity, with the demands placed upon them by love, they uplift their marriages to a higher platform that comes to light as natural universal love and brotherhood, beyond what the conventional institutions enable, which become gradually raised up, though not without a struggle and always reaching forward to the preciously enduring that comes to light as the evermore valid while the artificial falls away. Thus, the nuclear nightmare that starts with a fire brighter than the Sun, rouses a light within that becomes its own brightest star in the heavens. Rolf A. F.

"... A long-lost family heirloom, a young heir falsely accused of murder, a band of smugglers, two utterly delightful Heyer heroines, a taciturn, but highly resourceful older gentleman - all play their parts in a tale funny enough to have you laughing aloud."—Publishers Weekly One of Heyer's funniest Regency romances, and one of readers' favorites. An impetuous young lady and a fugitive nobleman? When spirited Eustacie stumbles into a band of smugglers, she is delighted to be having an adventure at last. Their leader, young heir Ludovic Lavenham, is in hiding, falsely accused of murder. Pursued by the law, Eustacie and Ludovic find refuge at an unassuming country inn. And the delightfully sensible couple who try to keep them out of trouble... The resourceful Miss Sarah Thane and the clear-thinking Sir Tristram Shield gamely endeavor to prevent Ludovic's arrest and Eustacie's ruin as the four conspire to recover the missing talisman ring that will clear Ludovic's name. WHAT READERS SAY: "A story in the manner of Jane Austen, of domestic comedy and love affairs." Times Literary Supplement "A sparklingly witty book that had me laughing out loud." "A perfect blend of romance, adventure, and, especially, humor. One couple is young and brash and fun, and the other is older and more mature. Seeing the older couple's relationship grow is one of the story's highlights. "This is a wonderfully rich novel, full of excellent secondary characters with lots of charm and wit." "Nonstop laughter from cover to cover? probably because there are two heroes and two heroines, and their chemistry with each other is just sparkling!" "Hilarious! A hallmark of most of Georgette Heyer's works is her sense of humor? her wit and comedic timing are at their best."
