I love traditional Regencies. They are my favorite type of romance to both read and write. My first one, The Importance of Almack's
, is due out on July 3. I spent a good portion of this past weekend working on the blurb for it with my editor. Once it's OK'd for release, I'll post it here to give you a taste of what's to come. The next few months will be very busy, I think.
But, back to the Regency. Why do I love them? I think because I love fairy-tales and that period of time has a little bit of everything when it comes to the magical world of dreams-come-true. The glittering court surrounding the Crown, Prince Regent, and his cronies set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic War just feeds the imagination. And again, I love the simple romances that the traditional Regency represents. Too bad they are becoming fewer and fewer these days.
So, in honor of the decline of the Regency Romance, today's historical fact highlights another decline during that period.This Day in History: On February 26, 1814, Napoleon escaped from where to begin the "Hundred Days" that ended at Waterloo.
