Broadly there are three categories: Regency and near-Regency romances,
modern detectives, and other (modern non-detective, and historical
non-romantic). Many Heyer fans (including me) stick largely to the
first category.

I would tend to recommend as a starting point any of Frederica,
Sylvester, Venetia, The Grand Sophy, or Arabella. All of these fall
into the first category. (They're quite different books within that,
mind you.)
