DG Rampton | bestselling humorous Regency romance
...
Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer have always provided me with my favourite literary escape. When my everyday life would get a little too everyday, I'd like nothing better than to enter the witty Regency world they created.

My aim as an author is to keep that wonderful brand of humour and romance alive. And no, this does not mean that I presume to the heights of Austen or Heyer!

As for heat, my writing tends towards 'traditional with passion' and not 'Fifty Shades of Grey set in the Regency'...I'm not judging, I just know my limits.

Simply, I love this series. This last book has more of a crime/thriller feel to it and is darker. I can't say I walked away at the end of it with a warm and fuzzy sense of optimism. However, the story is based on historical fact so it would have been ...more

“Chérie, whatever is the matter ? Did you not enjoy the dance? It seemed to me that you performed it well.’

‘Nothing at all is the matter,’ returned Artemisia, smiling forcefully. ‘I enjoyed myself immensely! And I did manage to step on your brother’s toes on several occasions, so it was a worthwhile experience all-round.”
D.G. Rampton

“Artemisia maintained a reserved silence for as long as she could, but by the time they entered the tranquillity of the park her amicability had reasserted itself. Besides, she concluded that there was no point in ignoring a person when they were so obtuse as to not realise they were being ignored.”
D.G. Rampton

“You forget yourself, your lordship. You have no rights to allow or disallow anything I may choose to do. You have, in fact, no claim over me whatsoever – a circumstance for which I thank the Lord on a daily basis! I am neither your ward nor your dependent, and I will not allow you to talk to me in that odiously overbearing fashion. You are the most obnoxious and conceited man alive, and I cannot wait to be gone from England and from you!”

“Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody not greatly in fault themselves to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.”
Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

“Good night, my lord.” The words were pronounced in her most withering tone.

By contrast, he remained quite alarmingly unwithered long after she left.”
Christina Brooke, London's Last True Scoundrel

No piece of art is ever perfect
No meal I cook is ever perfect
