I was introduced to Historical Romances through Victoria Holt and Elizabeth Mansfield.
Elizabeth Mansfield wrote Regency, sweet Regency.
I collected all her books.
Georgette Heyer is considered the Queen of the current Regency Genre.
I was delighted to find an easy reference to her list of Regency slang:
And of course there is Jane Austen. She lived in the Regency period. What more could you ask?
If you're new to Regency and want sweet romances, these are a good place to start. I admit I'm not a huge fan of Georgette Heyer. I have trouble reading her books. I don't know why. I'm dyslexic and need a certain rhythm in the writing. Shorter sentences and paragraphs help me keep track of where I am, which is less frustrating. However, a lot of Regency authors love her.
