My favourite historical novelist - stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours -- Margaret Drabble
A writer of great wit and style - I've read her books to ragged shreds -- Kate Fenton * Daily Telegraph *
Every girl, whatever her age, needs her own complete set of Heyer titles. More than romantic they are witty, elegant, stylish and the best comedies of manners since Jane Austen. Required reading for everyone -- Diane Pearson
Georgette Heyer is unbeatable -- India Knight
