Cotillion Rec

Who was it on my friendslist who posted about reading Cotillion? I looked through the past 1000 entries but didn't find any mention of it, though it could easily have been behind a cut. Anyway, I'm 80% through and right now my favorite character is Dolph, followed by Freddy, who doesn't get enough scenes or chances to talk. Actually, I think I like his father even more, but he has even fewer scenes.

Am tempted to create a spreadsheet to find out what % of Heyer male leads have invented, designed or modified a neckcloth knot to the envy of society. Also, if there have ever been any women in the stories who are simultaniously 1) Old enough to be a lead's mother, 2) Smart, 3) Not evil or mean. It really seems to be a "pick two" situation from my memory.
