Thursday, August 16th is Georgette Heyer's birthday. One of the grand dames of Regency Romance and romance in general, she never retold a fairy tale outright, but she has inspired many who have over the years.
In honor of that birthday, the publisher of her ebooks has temporarily dropped the price of the books to $2.99 for this week only. They usually range from $7.99 to $9.99 so this is getting two or three books for the price of one. Also included in the sale is Georgette Heyer's Regency World by Jennifer Kloester. I bought most of these books in paper--including Kloester's book--years ago. I recommend Georgette Heyer's Regency World as a fun reference book to the Regency period which also lets you know about some of Heyer's quirks vs. the reality of the Regency. My sister and mother both borrowed and enjoyed the book although they are not avid Heyer fans. Heyer remains one of my own comfort reads when my brain is tired and full and I've already zoomed through my other comfort reads. I'm thrilled to get some more for my Kindle at a great price. I owned all but three of these already thanks to previous sales, but picked up the titles that were released this past year which I didn't own yet.
Some of my personal favorites are The Nonesuch, Sylvester, Venetia, and Frederica.
And if Heyer is interesting to you, you might be interested in these books which are not included in the sale which are also not available in ebook format at this time:
