Venetia: una passione irresistibile

  1. Georgette Heyer was a prolific historical romance and detective fiction novelist Her writing career began in 1921, when she turned a story for her younger brother into the novel The Black Moth.In 1925 she married George Ronald Rougier, a mining engineer, and he often provided basic plot outlines for her thrillers Beginning in 1932, Heyer released one romance novel and one thriller each year.Heyer was an intensely private person who remained a best selling author all her life without the aid of publicity She made no appearances, never gave an interview and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point She sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stella Martin.Her Regencies were inspired by Jane Austen, but unlike Austen, who wrote about and for the times in which she lived, Heyer was forced to include copious information about the period so that her readers would understand the setting While some critics thought her novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyer s greatest asset.Heyer remains a popular and much loved author, known for essentially establishing the historical romance genre and its subgenre Regency romance.

  1. News flash I m not 18 any So even though I still have a soft spot for romances in general and Regencies in particular, my appetite for reading about sweet, silly young girls who do brainless things and have Big Misunderstandings with the guy has dwindled to almost zero When you re yelling TALK TO EACH OTHER, PEOPLE at a book, it s not particularly conducive to the romantic feelz.Which brings me to Venetia Venetia herself is one of my favorite Heyer heroines intelligent, witty, resourceful and n [...]

  2. Yorkshire, 1818 WARNING Spoilers, gushing, swooning, quoting and rose petal strewing ahead no orgies though, I promise read on safely P O Venetia Thou hast utterly captured my soul A rose by any other name would smell as sweet And a Damerel by any other name would be just as swoon worthy I will be calm I will be mistress of myself Because my name is Venetia and I m one of the most wonderful heroines in all literature I have lived one of the dreamiest romances possible, and have remained perfectl [...]

  3. I am one of those who steered clear of Georgette Heyer for years, even though I heard the comparisons to Jane Austen, I was afraid they were formulaic romances To my surprise it wasn t what I feared all those years and proved that breaking out of one s reading comfort zone can be quite rewarding This was made enjoyable getting to read this along with Sabrina, who also had some of the same feelings regarding Heyer, and both of us ended up enjoying it I was aware Heyer was famous, or some may say [...]

  4. Je n aurais jamais cru que Monseigneur le Duc d Avon pourrait tre remplac par un autre h ros When I start to mutter in French, it hints the book must ve made an impression And, dear me, this one did How could it not It s very intense for the average Heyer novel, a writer that normally shies away from overt sexiness as a scalded cat from water A good timing it had, too, for I was on the edge of losing faith in this author s capacity to create masculine characters as interesting as Monseigneur and [...]

  5. Never in my life have I been so glad of a rainy afternoon Never so glad that I was bored and typed a name into a search bar to see what would come up It was in this slightly unorthodox way that I originally discovered Venetia In a fit of utter boredom I typed the name Richard Armitage he d recently become my favourite actor into the iTunes search bar, and what should appear Three novels by Georgette Heyer, narrated by Richard Armitage I need not tell you I was wide awake again after that Before [...]

  6. Venetia is, without question, my favourite of all Georgette Heyer s Regency Romances, and I ve been looking forward to this new, unabridged audio version for some time Much of the story takes place in the Autumn, and I ve always felt that the book has a corresponding maturity about it, an almost elegiac feel in terms of the beauty of the prose and in the depth of the characterisation Damerel is certainly one of Ms Heyer s most strongly drawn and sexiest heroes, and the eponymous heroine is an ab [...]

  7. 3.5While reading Venetia I spent half of my time being thrilled Lord Damerel and Venetia are both wonderful characters and the other half being frustrated, annoyed and plain angry There was no middle, people.On the one hand, you have these two wonderful people Lord Damerel is said to be every horrible and ugly thing under the sun, but to me he was perfect He never does anything bad in the book His actions speak louder than any pretty words could Although his first appearance isn t exactly someth [...]

  8. I started reading Georgette Heyer when I was a teenager, some thirty five years ago, when my mother gave me Friday s Child and told me she thought I would enjoy it Since then I have read all the romances, a number of them countless times They have long been the books I turn to when I m feeling unwell, a bit fragile, or when it s cold and wet and I need a comfort read Just recently I have started listening to audiobook versions of Heyer novels I did not think that I would enjoy listening to book [...]

  9. 4.85 stars actually Why not the complete 5 I shall say presently.There are those books which you never want to end and which you never want to keep away Venetia is one such book I literally felt bad that it ended And it is one of the rare books in the middle of which I felt like crying It so touched me Yet again Georgette Heyer magic is very evident in this book I am so glad that I did read this one.Venetia stands very close to Frederica My No.1 Heyer in my list of favourites.Venetia is no doubt [...]

  10. At five and twenty Venetia Lanyon has never been in love All her experience with romance comes from between the covers of a book All her experience of the world outside her Yorkshire village comes from the books she has read Yet, she does not dream of romance and is content to run her family s estate while her eldest brother is with the Army of Occupation on the Continent She enjoys the company of her younger brother Aubrey and when Conway returns home and Aubrey goes to University, Venetia plan [...]

  11. Georgette Heyer is the first author I ve read who makes Jane Austen seem emo Don t get me wrong, I adore Austen and consider WWJD to stand for What Would Jane Do , but I really enjoyed this charming and angst free Regency tale of Venetia and her Wicked Baron, the rake Damerel Oh Damerel Imagine Sense and Sensibility s Willoughby and Jane Eyre s Rochester without their respective issues or wives Damerel is charming, mischievous, and funny The same could also be said of Venetia, who is nearing spi [...]

  12. I LOVED this book It s definitely my favorite Heyer and probably my favorite regency romance The entire book made me laugh, from descriptions of Oswald Denny attempting to become the Corsair to the many delightful exchanges between Damerel and Venetia, who are a couple that are truly fun to read about Every character is fully realized, from the odious Edward Yardley someone I wish I could have shaken to the self absorbed Lady Steeple This world feels real, and firmly grounded in the right era.He [...]

  13. Its said that Georgette Heyer created the Regency romance genre, and future authors used her books as their model It is my opinion that they used this specific book as a model At least, the good ones did This particular book felt much modern than the other ones, in the sense that I ve seen other authors try to rip off this story and its tone in recent books many many times But that s because its very well done and very enjoyable The romance centers on a friendship rather than a real courtship [...]

  14. Oh My.After years of ignoring this book on my shelf I think it s the cheesy 80 s cover , I have now found my new favorite Georgette Heyer Oh My.This book has everything A saucy young lady with an oddball family A leading man who is just as witty as she is Meddling neighbors Meddling family And scandal after scandal after SCANDAL Divorce Secret marriage Overbearing in laws Rakes Elopements Squandered fortunes Venetia s delightfully witty responses to everyone from her bookish brother to her dull [...]

  15. My favorite Heyer and probably the sexiest hero she ever created It reads great, but the best way to discover Venetia is by listening to the Richard Armitage audiobook on NAXOS Yes, it s an abridged version, but hearing RA as Damerel is not to be missed Truly swoonworthy.

  16. The Green Girl and The Notorious RakeIn one of her most popular and beloved novels, Georgette Heyer introduces readers to Miss Venetia Lanyon, a twenty five year old beauty tucked away in her family estate in Yorkshire At the moment Venetia s life is somewhat at a standstill Her brother who serves in the army, Conway has not yet come home these three years to take over the running of the state and her younger brother, Aubrey, who is preparing for Cambridge, has a diseased hip and needs to be loo [...]

  17. 3.5 starsReview to comehistorical romancezero smutnice readnothing particularly negative to say, just nothing particularly spectacular either Good solid enjoyable love story.

  18. This is the most enormously fun book.A young woman sheltered all her life in the country meets a rake, but the story is not one of an innocent reforming the rake, but a rake being brought to accept that the young woman can damn well make up her own mind about who is and isn t acceptable to her.There is some reformation going on, but this is a story that takes the social conventions that form the basis of most Heyer stories and throws them up in the air, then remarks appreciatively on orgies and [...]

  19. I no longer read romances and haven t for some years With the notable exception of Georgette Heyer Her books are beautifully written, her characters are well developed, charming and witty, and her dialogue is simply perfect.One of my favourites

  20. Hmm Not as good as I expected.I was frustrated by my last read, you see, and picked this up hoping it would certainly charm me out of my depressing mood, something I came to expect from Georgette Heyer books Just like with reading her excellent Frederica.Not even close.Of course, it wasn t fair since I love Frederica but oh well.Venetia, the novel, suffered because there were not enough interesting characters, not nearly enough Damarel was OK but Venetia she was fine And she shouldn t have been [...]

  21. 3.5 stars A couple of my colleagues are OBSESSED with Georgette Heyer, and were horrified to learn that I d never read anything by her So one of them was all RIGHT I M GOING TO BRING YOU SOMETHING TO READ And she brought me this It was Light and fluffy and pretty ridiculous But there was something about the writing style that kept me from getting fully involved in the story So I liked the dynamic between Venetia and the guy she ends up with And I liked the relationship between Venetia and her yo [...]

  22. Rating Heyer s books comes down to a comparison between her novels No one can compare with Heyer She sets the standard for an entire genre.Venetia tells a traditional tale of an innocent girl capturing the heart of a reputed rake in a wholly unique way The bond and rapport developed between this unlikely pair was one of the sweetest I ve read in the author s books With a range of engaging characters and a generous dose of humorous incidents, this story can t fail to please those who enjoy histor [...]

  23. READ October 21 22, 2016READ June 14 15, 2015I LOVE THIS BOOK What a joy it is to spend several hours with this delightful novel I can always count on Georgette Heyer to pull me right out of a reading slump.

  24. First recorded read was 2 March 2011.One of my absolute favorites in the Regency romances Due to the tragic death of his wife, Sir Francis Lanyon becomes a recluse on his Yorkshire estate with his three children growing up with no exposure to the outside world The middle child, Conway, goes off to school and then into the Army while the youngest, Aubrey, intellectually gifted but suffering from a diseased hip joint, takes the scholarly road While the lovely and intelligent Venetia, the eldest, c [...]

  25. This was the first book by Georgette Heyer that I have ever read and it got me hooked to Georgian romance A second rereading has proved that it stood the test of time and I still love it as much as I did around twenty odd years ago Venetia is a sheltered woman who finds love with the most unsuitable man What follows is the inevitable social claptrap with family and friends contriving to keep them apart and Venetia determined to marry the man she loves The characters are fun and well drawn though [...]

  26. Did you know that Georgette Heyer is British author and literary critic Margaret Drabble s favorite historical novelist I know High praise from an author who has written eighteen novels, introductions to all of Jane Austen s major and minor works, been awarded a Doctorate in Letters from Cambridge University and the CBE and DBE by the Queen of England Drabble is a living national treasure, as Heyer should have been if her novels had been taken seriously during her life time However, she has alw [...]

  27. Ah, such fun Venetia s lack of adherence to social norms made her such a great character I loved reforming rake Lord Dameral who gets taken in by Venetia s charm Their ensuing relationship and interactions make for such an entertaining Regency romance This one is definitely one of my favorites of Heyer s books Rating 5 Stars I loved it Source LibraryContent Clean like her other books this does contain the phrase Good God throughout

  28. I can t believe it took me this long to read Georgette Heyer book I inhaled this book last night and I stayed up late even though I knew it would end well It was that addicting
