"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.

"An invaluable guide to the world of the bon ton. No lover of Georgette Heyer's novels should be without it."
-- Katie Fforde

"Splendidly entertaining"
-"Publishers Weekly"

"Meticulously researched yet splendidly entertaining, Kloester's comprehensive guide to the world of upper-class regency England is a must-have."
