You Know You’re in a Regency Romance Novel When…


A good friend sent me this post a few days ago and I though it too good not to share!

It’s from a site called The Toast and the post is called, “How to Tell if You are In a Regency Romance Novel,” by Anna Snyder.  I think it’s delicious and oh, so true!

“1. You are either a virgin or a sad and lovely widow whose husband was lost at sea. You are spirited, but still passing ladylike.

2. Your father is away in the colonies protecting his tobacco interests, or a bumbling idiot, or a gambler. His character flaws lead to you becoming betrothed to a man you’ve never met.”

    Good thing that I’m safe too! 🙂 I love the idea of how some stories have the same stories over and over. 🙂

    Lol – fun. I think I’m safe – My husband isn’t lost at sea – he’s currently painting the laundry room 🙂

    Funny. In fact, in Lydia Bennet’s story, her overly critical and financially irresponsible father did set her on her path to acquire a husband. Nor, is she sorry for her actions. She acquires her Lt. Wickham and a fortune of her own, which she would not have achieved if she had behaved.

      Women behaving badly is always of interest to those around them as well as those who read them. 🙂 Bad girls and bad boys–we love them both! Can’t wait to read your tale of Lydia!
