I used to be an avid fan of historical romances until I sort of got 'burned out' on them and went to contemporary romances...now I want to mix in some HRs to break up the monotony....I am a fan of regencies so I've read Amanda Quick, Jo Beverly, Catherine Coulter, Mary Balogh, to name a few...I am partial to books where the characters overlap......Any suggestions??

Julia Quinn has a long series (The Brigertons) and some shorter series with overlapping characters.  I also think Lisa Kleypas has some recurring characters.

Sabrina Jeffries has The Royal Brotherhood series and the School for Heiresses series. The 2 series are connected by the book Only a Duke Will Do.

Have you read Jude Deveraux's books, particularly her older books are great. You can go from historical all the way to modern with the Montgomerys and then the Taggarts.


I love Amanda Quick's books, too and I also like books that she writes under other names, Jayne Krentz, (modern) Jaynce Castle (paranormal/futuristic), etc.
