It's a very good sale. I snagged Venetia, Charity Girl, The Convenient Marriage and Behold, Here's Poison for my stash. So looking forward to them . . . .

Thank you so much for posting this! I was missing Frederica and An Infamous Army from my e-shelf (I borrowed them both from the library).

I've not read any of Heyer's non-Regency romances, and I'm wondering which might be worth picking up at these prices. I welcome any suggestions!

Do you mean her mysteries, or the non-Regency historicals? I picked up a couple of each to explore--Envious Casca, A Blunt Instrument, and Behold, Here's Poison were all recommended on the GR Heyer group, and I also got The Conqueror and Royal Escape for the historicals.

Oh, and Charity Girl, April Lady, and The Masqueraders, just to be completist. :)

>3 rosalita: My favorites of the mysteries are Behold, Here's Poison and Why Shoot A Butler?

But if you haven't tried her Georgian romances, by far the best, IMO, is These Old Shades.

>4 Marissa_Doyle: I've only read the romances, both Regency and Georgian, so I guess I was meaning any of the others although I didn't know there were different "flavors" of other. Thanks for the recommendations!

>5 tealadytoo: I have read the Georgian romances — I have a bad habit of lumping all the romances together under Regency. These Old Shades is excellent. I'll check out those other two you mentioned as well. Thanks!

>6 rosalita: Yes, Royal Escape is about Charles II, and The Conqueror and several others have medieval settings and feature figures from history as main characters.
