Ah, Georgette Hyer, my first. LOL. My sister had "These Old Shades" and then I found more in my high school library. They were perfect reading while half listening in class. I still think " oh this GH story line or that one" when I read others.
LOVE Georgette Heyer! After her, it's more an individual book sort of thing. I've read and reread Stitch In Snow by Anne McAffrey (of Dragonrider fame). Precious Bane is another favorite of mine, along with Jane Eyre, another Pride and Prejudice.
