5 Wonderful Regency Era Reads for Historical Romance Fans

by Karen Green

Today we’re shining the spotlight on a genre voted reader favorite in a recent poll on our YouTube channel—Regency Romance.

The genre is a reflection of the sophistication and challenges of the era, as the nobility struggled to keep up appearances and lots of things were happening behind closed doors—often bedroom doors.

The Brontes and Jane Austen are well-known romantic authors from that era, and their spirit lives on in these five Regency romances that make it easy to see why this genre is such a favorite among readers.
