Giveaway: Discover Georgette Heyer!

Here is a chance to win THREE Georgette Heyer titles courtesy of Sourcebooks.
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.
We LOVE 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!
In light of the anniversary, Sourcebooks wants to ask readers: “How did YOU discover Georgette Heyer?”

TO ENTER YOU MUST leave a comment:

(a) Share your "Heyer Moment": when you first discovered Georgette Heyer; what was her first book that you read; what is your favorite Heyer title.
(b) If you haven't read Ms. Heyer yet please share why you want to start reading her novels.

LEAVE your email so I can contact you if you win!

I will pick one 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)

This giveaway will end August 17, 2012 at 10pm Central.

Here are a few of the many wonderful titles. One of the first I read was False Colours.

Devil's Cub False Colours Faro's Daughter The Foundling Frederica Friday's Child

  1. I was recently chatting with a fellow book blogger Christina over at Reader of Fictions a fewdays ago, and she mentioned that she wanted to read Heyer's work. It's about time I read one of Heyer's classics! *crosses fingers*

  2. I was in a reading funk and I compiled a list of authors to try, and she was on the list. I went to the library and borrowed Sylvester: Or the Wicked Uncle and fell for her hard! I think my favorite one might be one of her first books, its actually quite a bit darker than most of her books. I think it was called These Dark Shades.

    thank you for the giveaway!

  3. I had heard about Georgette around the time I actually started reading Historicals. But it wasn't until I won Venetia on another blog a couple of years ago that I got to finally read her. I haven't read any others but I sure would like to.
    Thanks for the great chance to win.

  4. The first Georgette Heyer book I read was actually Frederica. As soon as I finished reading it I ran out and bought several more! I've been hooked ever since. The other four you have listed are on my wish list! I would love to win because these are books I can read to my mother. Thanks.

  5. I bought my first and only book that I have read by her from a used book store. I can't believe i had not heard of her actually. Enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more.


  6. It was such a long time ago (40+ yrs) that I first read a Georgette Heyer book that I can't remember which one it was. I recently found my box of books in the attic & brought them down to read again.

  7. I first discovered Georgette Heyer's romance books as a teenager at the library. I then went on to read every Heyer book the library had. I can't remember the first book, I just know that I really loved it. My favorite book is The Grand Sophy, because Sophy is such a fantastic character. :D

  8. I discovered Georgette Heyer through these great re-issues that Sourcebooks has been putting out recently. I read my first of her work last year, and I was hooked! Her style really reminds me of Jane Austen-- so classy. I haven't read any of her "modern" books yet, and I'm looking forward to it.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  9. I haven't read any of her books yet, but would like to because the stories sound good.


  10. I have not read any books by this author-checked her out on google and will put her on my to-read list

  11. The first Georgette Heyer book I read was Cotillion. I think the next two were Frederica and Venetia (or maybe Venetia and then Frederica?) Since they were my "firsts", I'll always have a soft spot for those three.

  12. I heard of her before, but when she was mentioned as a romance novelist, I didn't have any interest, but when she was mentioned as a Jane Austenesque author, I took some note. I read Sylvester: Or the Wicked Uncle and fell in love with her books. It is still my favorite one!

  13. i've heard nothing but great things about Georgette & having a love for excellence in books, sounds like the perfect partnership! great offer & celebration!! thx for hosting, Martha ~ sourcebooks sure knows who to pick :) !
