Why did it take me so long to re-read this Georgette Heyer novel? I had forgotten what a romp it is. Ok, so it's not her best work and definitely not in my top five Heyer favourites (I much prefer the novels with older heroines!), but it is nevertheless a well-plotted and entertaining read. Horry is a somewhat annoying heroine, but Rule is an appropriately attractive hero, Lethbridge is a good villain and Pel, Pom and Edward (in his second and subsequent appearances in the narrative, at any rate) are hilarious. Georgette Heyer novels are my ultimate comfort read. I've read almost all of them and re-read quite a number of them regularly. I'll be adding The Convenient Marriage to the re-read list.
