It is at first rather surprising, when you realize just how many of Georgette Heyer’s novels revolve around — at least involve — the idea of someone or other running away from something or other. But then you think about it and you realize that in the regimented society in which she lays most of her scenes, you would probably want to run away, too. Especially from all of those arranged and/or distasteful proposed marriages.
Last week, we covered those intrepid females who ran for freedom; here, we ask: whom is your favourite of Heyer’s male runaways? (It should be noted that, unlike their female counterparts, oftentimes these men are running from the law.)
