Three Reasons Why Dating During the Regency Period is Like Dating Today – But Sexier

Three Reasons Why Dating During the Regency Period is Like Dating Today – But Sexierby Keira G

One of the many reasons I like reading Regency romances, is how dating is portrayed. It’s courtly. Upon closer examination though, I find there isn’t that much difference between dating back then and dating today. It just sounds sexier. Here are three areas dating is the same, but where I still think Regency dating habits […]

Courtship in the Regency Period

Courtship in the Regency Periodby Guest Blogger

by Susan Adriani, guest blogger and author of The Truth About Mr. Darcy If you think it’s difficult to find a man like Mr. Darcy in the twenty-first century, just imagine attempting it in the nineteenth, where propriety was demanded at all times—especially during courtship.

Review: Darcy Saga: Book One: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan

Review: Darcy Saga: Book One: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathanby Keira G

What I love most about this book is the research and language used to express the time period. Lathan’s diction is vastly superb – I had to look one or two words up. (Romance novels have all the credit when it comes to my 750 verbal SAT score from way back when.) The way she […]

Review: The Nonesuch by Georgette Heyer

Review: The Nonesuch by Georgette Heyerby Zarabeth Golden

by Zarabeth, guest reviewer The Nonesuch is a regency romance between a “top-of-the-tress Corinthian” and a noble-turn-governess. Already I’m upset. This was my first, and last, Georgette Heyer and I maintain that I simply cannot follow her style. I have intense difficulties understanding the language and keeping pace with the conversation.
