Teleri ni Pendaren from Theresa Edgerton's _Child of Saturn_, _The Moon
in Hiding_, _The Work of the Sun_.

Lady Aerin from Robin McKinley's _The Hero and the Crown_.

I'm not going to try for Rhys; there are too many of them.

Cordelia I would guess from Christopher Stasheff's _Gramarye_ series,
as the two I can spot are from fantasies rather than SF, but LMB is also
a possibility...

There's Heyer you haven't read yet? Lucky thing!

(Unless you mean the contemporary detective ones, which I don't rate.)
