    Default Name Your Regency

    Sooo...favorite Regency? If Jane Austen sounds too cliche, sorry! She set the standard! I'm looking forward to getting into some Georgette Heyer.

    I prefer English Regency myself. American feels too pioneer or Yankee to me for some reason.

    Great heritage. My paternal line is 100% UK (half English, half Welsh). Came over to the US in the 1860s/1870's.

    There are some wonderful American regencies from authors one wouldn't expect, like Andre Norton. She wrote several romances and many of them had a regency feel to them. They are probably some of her lesser known works, but I always enjoyed them. And she wrote romantic intrigues.

    The Opal-Eyed Fan
    Caroline (Regency) Although it's listed as written by Enid Cushing, Andre wrote it.
    Maid at Arms (Regency)
    Snow Shadow
    Velvet Shadows
    The White Jade Fox
    Follow the Drum
    Iron Butterflies (Regency)

    My favorite is a historical romance of sorts based on fact: Imperial Lady. It's set in China.

    I'll have to check those out. I do enjoy the Little Women era/setting; but as I've mentioned, I'm just a sucker for the English countryside and society.

    Oh, really? Wish I could get that way. I'm a genealogist. I've had no luck getting into Irish records. There's just nothing easily available. I've got a ancestor who went from Ireland to Scotland--but I can't get past Glasglow. I'm fascinated by the task of research Scottish historical authors take on. I'm afraid I just can't get into the genre though--prefer my English.
