So many of them are so much fun.  Cotillion is probably my most consistent favorite, and one of the funniest.  I also like the ones that make me cry (at some point, definitely not at the end!), like Venetia and Friday’s Child.  I like Civil Contract for the way Heyer is writing against her own tropes.  The Unknown Ajax is also a favorite.  

Do you know the Heyer blog entries on Tor.com?  For instance, https://www.tor.com/2013/09/24/land-management-and-romance-the-unknown-ajax/.
