Melissa and Allison have encountered some Heyer reprints:

I had no idea Heyer was so hard to find over your way.  AFAIK most of
her historical novels are pretty continuously in print over here -
paperbacks by Arrow last time I looked - and my only worry is to find
hardbacks before my paperbacks fall to bits.  (First editions with dust
jackets typically L10 or L12, although I've picked them up for as little
as L6)

And as for the lost Heyers, I think the edition shortly after her death
was US only for copyright reasons.  So these are practically impossible
to find in Britain, and the only lost Heyer I have is The Great
Roxhythe.  (Which is a truly awful book BTW, for me anyway.)  I am
prepared to loan it out if anyone is interested.
