I love just about everything Georgette Heyer wrote, but my all-time favorite of her novels is Faro's Daughter. It's the quintessential "battle of the sexes" as the hero and heroine attempt to out-think and out-wit one another. Eventually, however, their passionate hatred turns to passion of another kind. I laughed out loud while reading Faro's Daughter - not just a little chuckle either, but full-blow laughs. It's guaranteed to put a smile on your face and give you a nice, warm feeling of completion at its ending.
