Richard Armitage & Georgette Heyer - what could they possibly have in common?

So, what does this once prolific writer have in common with "Hunk of the Month Richard Armitage"  - as seen in sidebar?

If you're a fan of Richard A's you'll know he has a gorgeous voice!

Now, be honest ladies what does a voice like his do for you?

Well, let me tell you he's the narrator of Georgette Heyer Audio books.

Don't tell me that hasn't tempted your palate. And, you can read what he had to say about reading audio books here

If you want to buy one of his narrations they are easily located at Amazon!

As can be seen from these images not all Georgette historicals were set in the Regency period.

Note the book price bottom left corner of Powder and Patch - 2shillings/sixpence.
Did you know Georgette also wrote mysteries?

If you're a fan of the late lady of romance, you'll know she preferred a reclusive writer lifestyle: sensible woman.
When she died aged seventy-one in 1974, she had fifty-one titles in print: hard covers, paperback and all translated into at least ten languages and pirated in others.

What a great Legacy for all historical romance junkies. There are still original gems to be found especially on eBay!

Also, there's a lovely site dedicated to Georgette here. Well worth a visit.
