Sophie | 104 comments I have been looking for something like this!

MaryC Clawsey | 448 comments "Clean"? Aren't ALL Regency romances clean?! Oh my! Years ago, however, when Gothic romances were the rage, I did read that those with sex were usually written by men under feminine pen-names. If there are R-rated Regencies, could that also be the case with them?


message 7: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 20 comments Soph, yes, please do add!

Mary, a lot of the regency novels written now have sex in them. It's ridiculous.

Highly likely! I think mostly they are clean, but I am sure there are some...

will do!
and what are your favourites on the list? (other than the austens) i want to read some more regenecy romacnes. I have started reading a few Heyer (arabella and Cotiliion) but which Heyers, and also the other on there other than Austen would you most recommend? (i love the regency era and I am a totally romantic!)

and that is true, modern authors writing in the regency era add silly scenes!!

Sophie | 104 comments added the books now :)
I am planning on reading another Heyer next but i'm not sure which one. I loved Arabella and also Cotillion. Of the 2, Arabella was my favourite :)
I have three to choose from... Venetia , Frederica or The Nonesuch
what do people think?


message 11: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 20 comments I really like Venetia.

The list can include modern novels that take place in the regency era.


message 12: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 104 comments Oh yeah I added some like that ;)

And thanks for your opinion!

Louise Sparrow (LouiseX) | 410 comments Out of those three I would pick Frederica but they're all good :p

Sophie | 104 comments Thanks! :)

QNPoohBear | 567 comments Most post-2001 Regencies aren't clean and some older ones aren't either. Everyone has their own definition of what's clean. I don't care for lust or a lot of sensuality. I don't mind if the hero has a mistress in the beginning as long as he's not in bed with her. I don't mind a little bit of physical attraction but there has to be more to the relationship than that. I added some to the list.

Anne | 260 comments The list is wonderful!! Thank you all! :D


message 18: by Maria (new)

Maria | 20 comments Thank you :) The list is amazing! I cannot wait to read these books!!


message 19: by Yue (new)

Yue | 44 comments Great list, I could only add 2 more. If Georgette Heyer, Jane Austen and Carla Kelly are there, is enough :)
