The legend of the Headless Horseman and a proposed marriage de convenance both have their impact on the mystery of a golden talisman ring and Lord Lavenham's young heir, Ludovic. Neither Sir Tristram Shield nor Eustacie, his young French cousin, share the slightest inclination to marry one another, yet it is Lord Lavenham's dying wish.

Again, this is not a Regency-era novel, but I really enjoyed this very funny, romantic Georgian story. Besides two very different pairs of lovers, it includes a couple of bumbling Bow Street runners (policeman of the time), smugglers, a murderer, a surprising strapping wench, and a missing talisman ring that will reveal all.

I think this may be my favourite Georgette Heyer book. It's hilarious. There are two very silly main characters and two more sensible ones, who are all thrown into an adventure. The dialogue is extremely witty and I enjoyed reading it very much. I recommend it to anyone who likes romance or regency.

A very exciting romantic story; reminiscent of Jane Austen.

The Georgette Heyer Era in Great Britain had to be an incredible time for readers of the Romantic Regency Period of which the "Talisman Ring" personifies. Her writing was witty, erudite, lingquistically correct and funnier that a comic reader!!! She is and will continue to be my very FAVORITE Author of all time!!!!

This is my very favorite Georgette Heyer novel. The book is humorous throughout, and never strays from authentic regency dialogue, which is a hallmark of Ms Heyer's writing. I especially loved the very resourceful heroines.
