Scrolling down through the list of winners this morning, envious of all the other winners, and then get to the bottom of the list and see my name – grand prize winner. Soooo exciting!

  16. Okay, Ladies, with how much excited trepidation did we all visit Laurel Ann’s blog today? Congratulations to all the winners, including moi for The Corinthian! I am doing a happy dance but not quite the jig Linda B is doing.

    It would be fun and interesting if Laurel Ann had a revisit to this wonderful Heyer celebration and we all came back and commented on our reads. It would be nice to hear from those rediscovering Heyer, those continually devoted and those of us getting our first introduction to her. I am so glad the problem of which book would be my first Heyer has been taken care of for me!

    I again express my thanks to Laurel Ann, all the reviewers and contributors, and Sourcebooks, not only for such a wonderful event but also for making the month of August so fascinating and for making my day today!

      • Laurel Ann, are you really going to do the revisit Heyer celebration suggestion? I am excited if so and touched that you like the idea. I hope the other winners and Heyer readers will join in. I won’t get too excited yet, just in case you weren’t serious.

        Finally mailed my info tonight, I had problems getting to my email.

    • Now, Dawn, don’t say “ladies” and exclude the few male Heyer lovers out there. :P Although I daresay we are a very small minority.

      So happy to get a new copy of Arabella! On reflection, I probably should only have commented on reviews of books I didn’t already own/had read and wanted a new copy of, but my Arabella is an old large-type edition, and the new, beautiful SourceBooks version will be a welcome replacement.

      • NCGraham – I stand corrected and promise to never leave out you and your amazing and small minority again ;~0 I am glad you won a book and that the men are represented among the lucky winners. If you haven’t read The Corinthians, I would be glad to mail you my copy when I’m finished. We could do a book exchange type thing.

        I have seen your comments throughout the Heyer celebration not knowing your unique perspective. So, for someone who will be reading their first Heyer, what draws you to her novels? How do you feel about her historicals and mysteries?

        Like

        • Heyer is not someone I would ever have thought of reading on my own, but she was recommended to me by people who knew I loved Austen. I think I like her most for her humor, although I’m rather a sentimental fella too. I think my perspective on the heroes and heroines is slightly different from a woman’s. I generally want the heroes to be guys I would like to hang out with, and wouldn’t mind my sister marrying.

          I haven’t read any of her historicals or mysteries yet, but I want to.

          Thanks for the offer of an exchange, but I think I’ll pass. I have so many of her books already and haven’t read hardly any of them. Also, those I don’t keep I’m planning to pass along to a friend. Again, though, thanks.

          Like

          • Reading your point of view does make sense that you would be looking at the men as guys you could see yourself hanging out with, but I really like that you added that they would be someone you wouldn’t mind your sister marrying. What is your unique POV of the female characters? It will be interesting to see how I relate and feel towards the female characters with my first venture into Heyer. I ignored her for years, grouping her in with the standard formulaic Regency romances. This event showed me how wrong I was. It was her historical accuracy, wit and humor and comparison to Austen that got me to change my mind.

            I have to admit it is refreshing to meet a man who admittedly likes Austen, Heyer and the ilk and not for scholarly reasons but for reading pleasure. I am very glad to have met you here at Laurel Ann’s blog. And I totally understand you not wanting to do the exchange, no bad feelings, I was just trying to help out. On the other hand I am jealous you have so many of her books though ;~)

            Like

            • Haha, I started off saying I had a unique POV with regards to the female characters, too, didn’t I? And then I never came through. Ummm, not sure how true that actually is. I may eventually come across one that I find attractive in the way that female readers are attracted to her men, but that hasn’t really happened yet. I think that because Heyer wrote primarily for a female audience, she wants us to relate to the heroines – if not exactly to put ourselves in her place, at least to evince a brotherly or sisterly affection for her, rather the way Sherry’s friends do for Hero in Friday’s Child.

              By the way, you should see if anyone is selling lots of Heyer books on Ebay. That’s how I sized up my collection – I won twelve books on there with one bid!

  18. I, too, found this site because of your month of Heyer tribute, and I eagerly absorbed all of the reviews of the books I love so dearly. It even inspired me to pull out my well-loved (read: sadly tattered!) copies for a leisurely re-read. This site is a terrific resource and has found a permanent place on my favorites list.

    • I am deeply touched Subversa that your have been inspired to re-read your well-loved volumes of Heyer. She has many fans who are very passionate about her works. I am new to her novels, but it only took three chapters before I was hooked. It was a pleasure to organize this event and so rewarding to hear that others appreciate Heyer as much as I do. Thanks for visiting.

      Cheers, Laurel Ann

  19. Indeed I realize that I am the lucky duck, and, as someone mentioned, I’ve been doing the happy dance. Thanks for all the ‘congratulations’ messages.
    I’m the oldest of a three-generation Georgette Heyer fan club. In fact my granddaughter was home from grad school a couple of weeks ago, and requested some GH novels to take back to school with her. So, every title I receive will be read and loved by three of us, at least, and I will pass along to others the older copies that are being duplicated.
    Again, thanks so much for the month-long celebration of reviews and comments, and of course, especially, thank you for the generous giveaway!

    • Linda – I have to say when I saw in one of your earlier posts that you had spread your Heyer obsession over three generations I then realized that there were actually three winners here. Then I read this comment and just had to respond. I am the one who mentioned you having the biggest happy dance. Well, I hope when the package arrives, all three of you are there and do one heck of a happy dance!

      Enjoy,
      Dawn

    Hugo is my favourite mountain, with Sir Anthony Fanshawe running a close second. Large, competent men who see much more than they let on, but Hugo has the decided advantage of an unsuppressable sense of the ridiculous.

    Thanks so much, Laurel Ann, for that wonderful month of Heyer and the great giveaway.

  25. Congratulations to all the winners! I can’t believe I won Frederica! I almost never ever win anything. The timing is amazing. The GH month posts inspired me to look for her books at a seconds hand book shop and they had Frederica but I couldn’t reach it and it was hardcover, therefore probably too much money even used. I just went to Borders with my gift card from Christmas that looking for The Regency World Of GH or Frederica and they didn’t have any Heyer books on the shelf at all! (Borders is more convenient than B&N.) As someone above remarked, it will be fun to reread without having to take it back to the library!
