Historical fiction: Regency
Years ago I read a book by Georgette Heyer and was instantly addicted to the Regency time and to historical romance. I love all her historicals, but especially her Regencies.
So it's not surprising that the first historical romance I wrote was Regency-set.
Lady Caroline’s Reward blurb
Lady Caroline Eversley is the only child of the Earl of Blackshire. He is growing forgetful and she needs a chaperone so hires Miss Dinah Watkin, a distant relative whom she met once at a family gathering and enjoyed good friendship with.
While dealing with unwanted suitors, Dinah and Caroline fall in love, and Dinah teaches Caroline all about sex. But the problem of Caroline’s suitable chaperonage refuses to go away. And in Regency England unmarried women had almost no rights. Whatever will happen to them as the Earl’s health fails?
