Top Ten Books I'd Give To Readers Who Have Never Read Georgette Heyer
1. The Grand Sophy
Seriously, if you only ever read one Georgette Heyer in your life, read this one. It's terrific. A young woman comes to stay with her aunt and decides to 'straighten out' the family.
An older sister doing her best to chaperone one clueless younger sister through a London Season in hopes of marrying her off, while the two younger brothers wreak havoc. Fortunately, Lord Alverstoke is around to help... or is it so fortunate?
3. These Old Shades
A cold-hearted 'devil' duke rescues a spitfire girl from a life of misery... and his heart is taken by storm.
4. Devil's Cub
The sequel to These Old Shades. The son of the aforementioned duke is doing his level best to outshine his father's reputation... until he runs away with the wrong woman.
A girl runs away from a potential marriage, only to find herself falling for the Duke anyway. (His nephew is the most hilarious kid ever.)
6. The Corinthian
An ingenious girl decides to escape an arranged marriage by running away, and climbs out of her bedroom window... right into the arms of a lord who is also wishful of escaping marriage.
7. The Unknown Ajax
A country cousin is line to inherit, and therefore comes to the estate to be 'trained' for the role.
8. The Talisman Ring
A missing talisman ring, smuggling, an exiled cousin, an imaginative French lady, a woman only too willing to aid her... and a stiff and proper trustee... or is he so stiff and proper?
9. Bath Tangle
A feisty, headstrong beauty whose father dies... and leaves her fortune to the trusteeship of the man she rejected.
10. The Conqueror
This one ripped me apart. It was beautiful and wonderful and the friendships in it are AMAZING.
NOTE: Although these are clean romances, I still would not recommend them for anyone under 16 due to some rather mature themes handled.
