Georgette Heyer is known for two different genres -- Regency English Romances and contemporary (1950s) mysteries/dramatic gothic --, three if you include historically accurate fiction.  For her contemporary mysteries, don't bother, but she is the QUEEN of Regency Romance, forever mentioned, referenced, and burglarized in modern literature, including nearly all the more recently published "bodice-rippers."  Heyer's are meticulously researched and a lot of clean fun, so they can be read and thoroughly enjoyed beginning to end with no snags of modern slang, dubious details or stale plots (if the plot ever seems familiar to you, it's because you read a follower before the original!).
