Modern Regencies

Since I’m rereading Georgette Heyer at the moment, I thought it would be an interesting contrast to try something more recent for comparison. My tastes just now running to traditional rather than bodice-ripper, I searched particularly for that style, although it was difficult to find them – they tend to be well-buried amongst all those covers with flowing skirts and off-the-shoulder numbers. But here’s what I came up with, in three categories (prices in £ alongside):

1) The latest thing – the three bestsellers in the US on the day I looked (18th November 2016):

  • The Duke’s Everburning Passion: Charlotte Stone 0.99 2016
  • You’re The Rogue That I Want: Samantha Holt 3.27 2016
  • Gaining the Gentleman: Eleanor Meyers 0.99 2016

2) Older books (pre-2000):

3) Recent Regencies (2000+):
