I love the regency era romances like Christina Dodd. I also like Amanda Quick. Are there any other authors with similar writing styles, especially regency era. Thank you

I really like Mary Balogh. She has a series about 7 brothers and sisters called the Slightly Series.  I also likeJudy Garwood and here series that stared with Lyon's Lady (I think).

I think the above poster meant Julie Garwood.  And she does have great historicals.  I also second Stephanie Laurens and Julia Quinn.  I also like Lisa Kleypas.

Jacqui D'Allesandro is really good too.  I have several of hers on my shelf - bought new-read once condition.

I really like Julia Quinn, Amanda Quick (automatic buy in hardback - I don't even read the blurb before I buy it), Christina Dodd and Mary Balogh.  Julie Garwoods newer books are contemporary romantic suspense though, so check before ordering.

I think Lorraine Heath might be similar but I haven't read her yet so I'm not sure.
