I really wanted to like Beauvallet. I have previously read two other Georgette Heyer books. Both of those were mysteries, but it wasn't the romance that I objected to in Beauvallet. I didn't get too far into the story. I did give Beauvallet 20%, which is what I give any book to "hook" me.
What prevented me from enjoying and continuing Beauvallet was the language. It is set in Elizabethan times and is written that way. I have a hard time with things written in this style. If I'd known ahead of time that it was written this way I would not have requested this particular Georgette Heyer book from Sourcebooks.
If this type of book is something you enjoy or can 'deal with', please check out the list of Georgette Heyer books that Sourcebooks has released and will release in the future!
