Georgette Heyer Contest (and some others to tickle your fancy)

The wonderful people at Sourcebooks have a wonderful contest going on to honor Georgette Heyer, the master of Regency romance.
Nationally known Librarian, Nancy Pearl of the NPR, has picked Heyer's An Infamous Army as one of her top 2008 Summer reading picks.
Never read a Heyer novel? Well, here's your chance! We are giving away An Infamous Army along with three other Heyer novels. All you have to do is post here by Monday. Tell me why you want to win and which Heyer novels you would love to read. I personally recommend Friday's Child, which was my first Heyer book. *G*

Want to know about some other great book contests to tickle your fancy? (As always, I aim to please!)
This is truly an amazing contest! All About Romance is giving away an ARC of Seduce Me At Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas that doesn't come out till October! You have till tonight by midnight to enter. **I received an ARC of this book and let me tell you, if you enjoyed Mine Till Midnight, Seduce Me At Sunrise is just as good! Pen and Win's love story is sexy and sweet. Plus we see how Cam and Ameilia are doing as a newly married couple**
Also at All About Romance, you have your chance to win a copy of Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews. You have till midnight tonight to enter. And while you're there, read the wonderful interview that was posted by me! **yup, shameless plug**

If anyone knows of any other contests around, give a shot out here and we will post them :D

The Grand Sophy has always been my favourite Heyer book.

So far I have only read Friday's Child and was blown away! What was I waiting for??
Would you like to be placed into the contest Kristie? *G*

Dev said...

Please enter me!! I haven't read a Heyer book yet and I really want to. Maybe if they were on my desk taunting me everyday I might actually get around to it :-)

Katie: *g* I already own most of her books - cut my teeth on her I did, so chances are I already have the winning ones. So - next time *g*.
But a couple more to recommend - These Old Shades and Devil's Cub.
The hero in TOS is quite a bit older than the heroine and he's almost scarily cold - but she is such a match for him anyway. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who reads romance to try Georgette Heyer. Her books aren't like we read today - but they are lovely anyway - and some of them, like The Grand Sophy are wonderfully funny

I think I would want to win THE NONESUCH or DEVIL'S CLUB. Or any of them, really, seeing as how I've never read a GH book.

Ah!!! I want all three books! Why? Why do you do this to me? @_@

I would love to read any book by Heyer. I've never read a book by her and I've been told she is the lady that truly started it all with historicals.

Kate said...

Throwing my lot in here as well, I'd love to win any of them since I've never read any Heyer and would like to.

*Shameless self-plug* I'm also giving away a copy of Deanna Raybourn's Silent in the Grave over on my blog - you have until midnight tonight Pacific time to enter!

Enter me please! I haven't read any Heyer, but I see a lot of recommendations so I'll have to check her books out sometime (I saw but missed the recent giveaway on SBTB). Faro's Daughter or Cotillion looks interesting.

Amy said...

I would like to win a Heyer book because I've been reading about them everywhere! I have no idea which one I want to read! so yes, please enter me. :)
