Georgian and Victorian Historical Fiction (including Regency)

The Georgian era, sometimes known as ‘The Long Eighteenth Century’ and which included the brief period known as The Regency, was a time of great achievement in the arts and sciences, but also one of considerable inequality and extravagance. Fashions and pleasures were writ large, and the inherent dangers and uncertainty of living in a city such as London resulted in lives that were particularly intense and passionate.

The Victorian era, meanwhile, from 1837 to 1901, still provides us today with everything a lover of the Gothic and the Mysterious could wish for - sophisticated, spicy and full of hidden desire. Against a backdrop of revolution and social unrest on the continent, intrigue and ‘atmosphere’ simply emanated from the walls in 19th-century England.
