Another Georgette Heyer fan!!! I mainlined all of her books when I was a teenager and tend to reach for one or two every time i get near a beach. I read them in English, which I was still learning then, and her writing ended up a huge influence on both my vocabulary and syntax. (Oops.)
I was much amused by The Unknown Ajax, I must say. One of the more likeable leading men that I've seen from Heyer so far... not that the less upright characters aren't fun, too, but Hugo is just a nice guy with a great sense of humor. I think I read These Old Shades a while back but may have the hit it again.
If you haven't read The Foundling and The Toll House, go find them. Their leading men are pure gold! :-)

These Old Shades I love mostly for Leonie.
I did print out a comprehensive list of GH books so that I can make sure I get all of them... I will move those two to the top :)
Yes! I discovered her a while ago, and all I can say is thank God for the library, or I'd be even more broke than I am now. They definitely have that Austen vibe, but much more saucy and adventurous :D All of the different idioms and turns of phrase of the era make it feel a little like reading something in another language, at times!
