A romance that takes place during the regency period in England from 1811 through 1820 is called a “regency romance”. Regency romances are marked by their accuracy to detail, painting a complete, credible picture of life in those times, including: how the lords and ladies dressed, what they ate, how they spoke and the morals of the era.
Against this background of 19th Century staid British aristocracy foment and swirl engrossing tales of love and passion in the parlor. Clandestine meetings, midnight rendezvous in sumptuous bedrooms with beautiful but willful heroines and irresistibly handsome, often gallant, always wealthy heroes. Mixed into these sexy-under-the-surface stories is the heartbeat of drama, intrigue spiced with double dealing and secret couplings. The action takes place among proper London upper crust society and leisure-class English country folks.
