Arabella by Georgette Heyer

Arabella by Georgette Heyer
Fans of Jane Austen will delight in Georgette Heyer's regency novels featuring strong, if sometimes a bit silly, female protagonists. Wit and humor abound with just the right amount of love story added in to make Heyer's work light and satisfying.

These look so good! I'm a huge Jane Austen fan and I love Regency England. I'll have to check these out.

I love Jane Austen too!

I enjoyed Arabella, though I think many people start off reading The Grand Sophy. If you read it (or an Mary Stewart) you'll have to let me know what you think. :)
