Georgette Heyer, the “Queen of Regency Romance,” is one of the most beloved authors of all time, and Sourcebooks couldn’t be more thrilled to be her North American publishing home: all 52 of her delightful novels are back in print!
Over the years we have come to find that fans of Heyer’s work all have “Heyer moments”—stories about how they discovered her, which novel is their favorite, how they used to sneak and read their mother’s copies, and so on.
Sourcebooks LOVES hearing these stories from fans, and what better time to sing the praises of one of our favorite authors then on the anniversary of her 110th birthday! And what better incentive than with a giveaway.
My story? I love romance, romance is what started me back reading mid-way through college years ago, but I have never read a Georgette Heyer book. I want to and with 52 books to choose from it should be easy to find one that appeals to me. I think I will start with Cotillion, something about it, the cover (don't those girls look mischievous), the blurb, just catches my fancy and says read me. I have it on my Kindle and plan on reading it before the end of summer. And I have a feeling after that I will be reading many more.
Blog readers can participate by commenting why they love Georgette Heyer and their own personal “Heyer moment,” or why those who have never read her novels want to start! I will choose one random winner from the comments who will receive a surprise grab-bag prize pack of 3 different Heyer novels: 1 Romance, 1 Mystery, 1 Historical Fiction (1 winner per blog, US and Canada addresses only). Prize will be mailed from the publisher.
