Reading Heyer: The Black Moth by Rachel Hyland (2018)


“I howled in laughter while reading this, and it reminded me why I love this genre in general so much. Begad, it’s good.”
— Megan Frampton, best-selling author of Lady Be Bad

“All the fun of discussing a favorite book with someone who loves it just as much as you do, but who is so much funnier than you are as well.”
— Clara Shipman, Heyer Society (contributor)
