Hollywood doesn't know what to do with Heyer, either.

So, it turns out that there IS actually an American film version of one of Heyer's books. Check out these charming pictures from the 1951 movie "The Reluctant Widow", AKA "The Inheritance":

Okay, I think I remember that scene. However...

...what is THIS? I am at a loss to explain it. As far as I know, Heyer never mentioned either erotic asphyxiation OR good old-fashioned bloodsucking, did she? (Or did I just miss that part?) Anyway, I hear this movie is very amusing, although apparently it underwent an eleventh hour edit that removed a bunch of crucial plot points. Regardless: Netflix, here I come.
