Most of this is not about romances, but in Chapter 3 there's a section on Georgette Heyer (pages 75-80) and there are a few mentions of her elsewhere in Chapter 3:

historical novels set in times of war such as Georgette Heyer’s The Spanish Bride (1940) and An Infamous Army (1937) reflected the mood of the times. Like many war brides in the 1940s, Juana in The Spanish Bride contracts the hastiest of marriages to a man she hardly knows at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. Having vowed never to be parted, they travel together – as most couples who fell in love during the Second World War were not permit-ted to do – to the battle of Waterloo. (68)
