Well, of course that pleases me. The fun, or part of the fun, of writing the books is standing most or all of the Regency Romance tropes on their ear. It's almost irresistable: I used to have women come up to me, when I was writing straight Regencies back in the last millennium, and coo "Don't you wish you lived then," to which my response was generally, "Hell no." No painless dentistry? Crappy sewer- and plumbing systems? The clothes look great until you have to get strapped into a corset. And I know damned well that I would not have been the Duke's daughter, I'd have been a farmer's daughter, and probably died early from some utterly preventable disease. No thanks. But it is a fascinating era, historically and socially, and I can't quite keep my hands off it. I just want to play in the mud, not go to a tea party.
Back to the mud pit.
