Perhaps the most deeply cherished novel among Heyer fans, Arabella is the story of a poor girl who captures the heart of a handsome and wealthy bachelor. When Arabella first arrives in London, she has only one mission: to snare a rich husband. With a mind to beat the competition, she pretends to be a rich heiress and soon finds herself the talk of the town, pursued by the most eligible bachelors in the city. But she has her sights on one man only: the much-hunted Mr Beaumaris. Our feisty heroine puts up a fight and deals the worldly-wise Beaumaris a deft hand in the game of love; at first grudgingly charmed, he soon becomes smitten. However, what will he think of her deceitful charade? Will it ruin her chance to be with the perfect man? Arabella contains some of Heyer's most witty dialogue and romantic banter; with its delightful and laugh-out-loud passages it is no wonder it remains the fan favorite.

One of GH's best!
Awwww, another favourite....
As most of Heyer books, it is the top. The narrators are always well chosen and Phyllida Nash is top of the tops. She enjoys the narration and it is obvious she enjoys the story. As do we who are priviliged to listen to her telling it.
All Heyers of course. The humour, the amazing characters, the everything.
She has that happy abiity to give the characters a personality, the situation a humour by her obvious enjoyment. She can read any day to me!
I did- giggle
This is for sure one of the most favourite Heyers amongst us fans, so having it availible in unabridged version is a pleasure. And yes, we all have it in printed version too. Have it on kindle most likely as well. I wish they made a movie (there was Arabella done by Germans, but it was alas not that great as it was brought into modern era). BBC could do great deal with all Heyers....
