A Regency Hero’s Best Friend – Major Deveril

‘What a Jolly, good old fellow!’ Now, where would we all be without a best friend at our side to laugh with and, when we’re being rather silly, to cuff us around the ear? You have already met The Widow’s Redeemer hero, Viscount Beauford, and today, I’d like to introduce you to his best-mate. Now,Continue reading “A Regency Hero’s Best Friend – Major Deveril”

A Regency Heroine: Letty Burton

 ‘Determined, strong, good; a woman of indomitable spirit.’ Yep. That’s me. What a great description. Wait, wait, wait; woah, woah woah! I think…I THINK I may have gotten that wrong. Yes, in fact, I’m sure. You see, when I write (which is whenever I get the chance), I tend to write my heroines as theContinue reading “A Regency Heroine: Letty Burton”

A Regency Hero: Viscount Beauford

            ‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a lady of the 21st Century loves a Regency gentleman.’ Wait, do I have that wrong? That was what Austen said wasn’t it? Or something along those lines? Anyway, whether or whether not the eminent Jane Austen did say that, I can atContinue reading “A Regency Hero: Viscount Beauford”

Being a Regency Aristocrat…

So they have boatloads of cash right? Gigantic house in the country (known as their country seat) and beautiful mansion in Town? They are all so very handsome whether man or woman and they have all the time in the world to rollick about and cause scandals….right? Now, I haven’t learnt a great deal aboutContinue reading “Being a Regency Aristocrat…”

Next Big Thing – Or so they tag me…

So I have been tagged by Mary Thornell over at The Bottle Imp. Being tagged as The Next Big thing means I have to answer questions about my Work In Progess (the story I’m currently writing). Think of it like an interview, except I’m interviewing myself….to be honest, I talk to myself quite a lotContinue reading “Next Big Thing – Or so they tag me…”

Aristocracy in the Regency

Who were the aristocracy? We hear a lot about Dukes, Earls, Viscounts etc in Regency Romances and even in the classics don’t we? This prolific use of aristocrats within the Regency genre can lead to a romanticised view of the aristocracy. With so many books crammed full of Dukes, Earls and Marquesses it’s easy toContinue reading “Aristocracy in the Regency”

My Bonnie Light Horseman… A ‘lite’ look at British Cavalry – Jonathan Hopkins

Haloo All! I am pleased to be introducing onto my blog this week, Jonathan Hopkins, a 19th Century cavalry expert and author of the Cavalry Tales series. This week, right here, right now, as a very apt follow-on from Bennett’s previous blog on the Napoleonic Wars, Jonathan delves, rather humorously, into the lives of realContinue reading “My Bonnie Light Horseman… A ‘lite’ look at British Cavalry – Jonathan Hopkins”
