My life with Heyer

I discovered Georgette Heyer when I was around 13 or 14 and I can't remember which was my first one. It was love at first read. I adored the heroines, fell in love with the heroes and appreciated her research, extensive and thorough.
Heyer provided me, and still provides me, with one of the most satisfactory reading experiences I've ever had.
And she created the patten-card for the modern Regency romance. You want rakes, rich society dukes, or scoundrels? They're all there. Damerel spawned a lot of successors, but when all's said and done, there's only one Damerel!
