Book Synopsis



The definitive guide for all fans of Georgette Heyer, Jane Austen, and the glittering Regency period

"Detailed, informative, impressively researched. A Heyer lover writing for Heyer fans." --Times Literary Supplement

Immerse yourself in the resplendent glow of Regency England and the world of Georgette Heyer...

From the fascinating slang, the elegant fashions, the precise ways the bon ton ate, drank, danced, and flirted, to the shocking real life scandals of the day, Georgette Heyer's Regency World takes you behind the scenes of Heyer's captivating novels.

As much fun to read as Heyer's own novels, beautifully illustrated, and meticulously researched, Jennifer Kloester's essential guide brings the world of the Regency to life for Heyer fans and Jane Austen fans alike.
