Hi,

I was hoping someone could recommend any Love Inspired Regency Romance. I'm looking for anything Regency without bedroom scenes.

Thanks,

Colleen

I'm not sure what you mean by Regency?

The Regency Period is 1811-1820 (between the Georgian Period and the Victorian Period), but can also be applied to 1795-1830. I specifically want ones set in England.

Thank you,

Colleen

Ok, this evening I'll look at the books I've read because I know that I've read some somewhere that fit that description...just off the top of my head the Acadia Series by Janette Oke & T. Davis Bunn MIGHT fit that description somewhat.  But, they aren't in the Love Inspired grouping...

I just read a great Christian Regency written by Linore Rose Burkland called "Before The Season Ends".  It's a newer release by Xulon press that is just fantastic.  I could not put it down!  It is set in America, but that does not detract from the Regency feel at all.  If you like Regency romance, then I can not recommend this book highly enough!

Catherine Palmer English Ivy series is regency period and set in England.  It was an OOP series but is re-releasing with new covers.   I believe the books are available here on PBS.
