If you like lighthearted Regency romances, you’ll probably like….
— Julia Quinn’s novels. I know people swear by the Bridgertons (start with The Duke and I), but don’t neglect the pre-Bridgerton Everything and the Moon and To Catch an Heiress. To Catch an Heiress was one of the inspirations for the original Pink book.
— Sarah MacLean’s “Numbers” trilogy, starting with Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake. Don’t worry; there isn’t a one to eight, so you’re starting in order when you start with nine.
— Amanda Quick’s With This Ring or assorted others. I like the Gothic/Regency mash-up of With This Ring (think Northanger in spades), but some of her older novels are less Gothic, more Regency.
— Eloisa James’ When Beauty Tamed the Beast. How can you go wrong with historical House?
— The Lady Most Likely, a story in three parts tri-authored by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway. Like those sampler packs of flavored oatmeal, it’s a great way to sample their three different writing styles.
I know I’m forgetting a ridiculous number of people. Who would you recommend for a fun Regency read?
