In response to Does anyone else like Georgette Heyer's novels?, written by Katie on August 08, 1998 at 08:33:27
She's not really my all-time favorite, but I do read some from time to time. Some of them I really like (Cotillion, The Foundling), some of them are rather awful (Devil's Cub, Venetia), some of them are very lightweight confections that will hardly stand up to more than one reading (Faro's Daughter, Talisman Ring), and many of them are tolerably beguiling reading without necessarily being masterpieces. I guess the ones that tend to appeal to me are those set in or near the regency (I never have been very intrigued by the mid-18th century), and in which the heroine is not already married early in the novel.
Just my subjective reactions...
