I am looking for a book that I would have read in the late 80's/early 90's most likely a Regency Romance.  There were a lot of quotes from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  I believe that the heroine compared her situation to that of R&J.  I believe she was being forced into a marriage by her father, possibly for gambling debts.  By the time she goes to meet the lord she is to marry she has come to love him, and somehow she accidentally meets a cousin (male) that acts like a friend to her, but I believe is really trying to undermine the impending marriage.  I know it is not much to go on, but you guys like a challenge, right?   Any ideas are welcomed.  Also, I like any regency romances that have Shakespeare quotes in them, if anyone knows of any, I will welcome them.  Thanks.

Have you seen Sarah A Hoyt's fantasy series?  Okay, not a romance.  Starts with Ill Met by Moonlight.

I believe there were quite a few Shakespearian quotes in A Dangerous Love by Sabrina Jeffries.
