Filled with sparkling wit, frothy romance, and impeccable period details, every single one of Georgette Heyer’s Georgian and Regency novels has something to recommend it. There are runaway balloons, devoted rescue dogs, kidnappings, duels, brooding Yorkshire heroes, and “that Greek fellow.” How can a Heyer fan choose only one favorite? It would be unfair of anyone to ask us to do so. Nevertheless, it seems only fitting that for the final Georgette Heyer poll we address ourselves to the difficult task.
Below, I present to you the contenders for Georgette Heyer’s Most Beloved Novel. There are no limits on how many times you can vote and, as always, if you have a preference for another of Georgette Heyer’s novels (The Talisman Ring, perhaps, or The Corinthian), I encourage you to write in your choice below.
