It's always a #perfectpleasure to help littens find books for my #regency square on #jennyis30! ( @Cinfhen !!!) #newyearnewyou @Eggs

Eggs 💗📚👏🏻👍🏼 19h
TrishB Only Q9.99 on kindle. This is my least fave historical era and I will be struggling. 19h
Butterfinger Oh no @Trish Have you read any Georgette Heyer? She has humor in her works. It has certainly been awhile, but I am wanting to say to be mindful of discrimination. I can't think of anything specific right now. 18h
Cinfhen Thanks, Jenny!!!!! Keep the recommendations coming 💗😘 13h

Cousin Kate | Georgette Heyer

Georgette Heyer is pure comfort food for me. Cousin Kate, her satirical gothic tale, rarely gets much praise and I agree the peril aspect could have been handled differently. Nevertheless Kate and her former nurse Sarah are wonderful characters, two of my favourite Heyer heroines. While Aunt Minerva is one of her most chilling villians.

This was another lovely book by the wonderful Cat Sebastian. She has created amazing lgtbq+ period romance books. It is also great to read introverted characters. I highly recommend! #romantsy

I was very iffy about the scar thing, but it turned out pretty okay. The ending is rather hot stuff for the period it's set in! They're cute, though.

The Duchess Deception | Cat Sebastian

Finished this this morning and BOY I loved it! Not just about romance (which was delightful and charming and lovely), but about the ability to build communities outside of heteronormativity. Love this series and I hope Cat Sebastian returns to it.

Also, Sydney worrying that he's the sort of person that people don't develop deep feelings for, the sort of person who gets forgotten... well, it's a personal attack! How dare!!!

An ace character in a historical romance?!?!
