“love regency romance novels!”

 

Description from J Yee smart chick: inspired by regency romances...I've been reading these for a long time, and love the stories about couples trying to find romance despite all the social restrictions in English society. Unmarried women were supposed to be pure and innocent while guys could "sow their wild oats"...the authors I like best such as Carla Kelly do a great job of having unconventional heroines and heroes who are survivors of a lot of life struggles yet are still good people... :)

    Hi Smart Chick! I’m going to have to give a regency romance book a try! I volunteer at our local library book sale and we have lots and lots of romances…I’ll have to check for Carla Kelly the next time I’m on duty!
    I LOVE the softness of the colors in this pick…very romantic!

    Hey Happy Chick,

    there’s so many kinds of authors, from the “no sex but good/great story” ones such as Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer and my absolute favorite, Carla Kelly!
    then there’s the ones who have lotsa sex in the story, which is kinda the norm these days… dont’ get me wrong, sex is part of life, but as a natural part of the story plot, okay?? not the other way around! :) let me know what you think if you read some okay?

    Smart Chick, I admit to having read a regency romance or two (or several dozen). You’re right about the sex, I prefer the ones where the story/plot are strong, rather than all “sexed up” for no logical reason. They’re fun to escape into though, I’m a sucker for romance.

    PS Gorgeous pick! The Laced Heart and the Shell make me think of corsets and laced bodices.

    I’m glad you all like it, I find the rules of English upper aristocrat society in the 1800′s fascinating, although I sure wouldn’t wanna wear the tight corsets they had to! :) yeah, when I saw the laced heart I thought of those corsets too… by the way, has anyone seen the movie “Duchess” with Keira Knightly? I haven’t yet, but would like to. I saw “Dangerous Liaisons” awhile ago with Glenn Close and Uma Thurman, that was a kind of dark movie about the ways that an aristocrat (Glenn Close) manipulated those around her to get what she wanted, in the end it backfired on her.

    joyce

    My brother-in-law calls movies like “Dangerous Liaisons” or “Duchess” “old clothes” movies (my sister likes them too). I haven’t seen “Duchess” yet, but I have seen “Dangerous Liaisons” a few times. You might like any version of “Pride and Prejudice” or “Sense and Sensibility”, “Jane Eyre”, “Wuthering Heights”, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, “Tess”, darn there are a whole bunch more whose names I’m blanking on. I’ll try to think of them for you Smart Chick.
