Popular MUST-READ Regency Romance Novels

A regency romance book will always be there in whatever historical romance you read. Using a conservative estimate, there are around 85 million regency books available at any given time. It is by far the most popular historical sub-genre, with new releases happening almost daily. Officially, it only spans the brief period from 1811 to 1820, when King George IV served as Prince Regent. However, resourceful writers have been able to extend it to around the 1830s (until Victoria comes along in 1837).

The greatest regency romance books are included here, including anything from pristinely pure to graphically explicit plots. I've also made an effort to draw attention to some lesser-known but nonetheless top-notch works in this area.

ARABELLA BY GEORGETTE HEYER

ARABELLA BY GEORGETTE HEYER

In a sense, Georgette Heyer is credited with creating this kind of book. Her early to mid-20th century novels are invariably hysterically funny, wonderfully romantic, and well researched. Her attention to detail is exceptional. Actually, you'd never know she hadn't experienced it herself! I'll stop gushing over her now and tell you why you should read this book in particular. A young woman named Arabella is traveling to London in pursuit of love. At the home of Robert Beaumaris, one of the wealthiest and most well-connected men in the nation, her carriage breaks down on the route. He naturally believes she is attempting to seduce him into marriage. She overhears him, though, and haughtily exclaims, "I have an unbelievable wealth!" The sole caveat? She essentially has no money to rub together. A really enjoyable social tale with a gratifying romance follows. 

SUDDENLY YOU BY LISA KLEYPAS

SUDDENLY YOU BY LISA KLEYPAS

Even though it's one of Kleypas's less well-known books, it's worth reading. At the age of 30, Amanda—still a spinster—throws caution to the wind and chooses to have an affair with Jack Devlin. He is charming, polite, devilish, and also her publisher. Should she have combined work and pleasure?

SCANDALOUS DESIRES (MAIDEN LANE #3) BY ELIZABETH HOYT

SCANDALOUS DESIRES (MAIDEN LANE #3) BY ELIZABETH HOYT

Although Hoyt creates a number of exquisite, intensely moving historical romances, this one has without a doubt her greatest character interaction. Despite not having a spouse, widow Silence Hollingbrook does have a kid. No, Mickey O'Connor, a lovely but deadly river pirate, is the parent of Mary Darling, not her. Under Mickey's loving care, the hostility Silence feels toward him—which stems from an event that occurred between them a year ago—slowly transforms into love. However, a river pirate's life is not recognized for being very lengthy, and he has many adversaries.

A WEEK TO BE WICKED (SPINDLE COVE #2) BY TESSA DARE

A WEEK TO BE WICKED (SPINDLE COVE #2) BY TESSA DARE

When it comes to regency romance, Dare has long been a well-known author, but this is by far her greatest work. The characters' banter is unmatched, and their relationship is as sweet as candy. Minerva Highwood, a bookish, science-obsessed spinster, must go to Edinburgh for a geology symposium. (They may not be aware of her gender specifically; she will deal with it when she arrives.) Meanwhile, the arrogant Colin, Lord Payne, has made the decision to go with her out of sheer altruism. (And a tiny bit of a yearning to see her undressed.) It's amazing how many scrapes two innocent people on an innocent pretend elopement can get into. The two of them then go on a regency-style road trip across the country.
