Best Selling Author of Historical Mystery and Time Travel Romance
Your general telltales are if it's "Lord Whosit" and/or "Lady Whatsherface" and they don't *specify* a time period...pretty much if it has a title in the title (cf. DUKE OF SCANDAL, HOW TO MARRY A MARQUIS) it's likely a regency. There are clues IN the book...if the ton is mentioned (or the "beau monde"), Napoleon, etc...You get a feel for these things. Any book in particular you were wondering about?(BTW if anyone wonders WHY they're called "Regencies" it's because they're set in - or near - this era: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regency_eraThough strictly speaking, if it's set before it's "Georgian"...but they all kind of get lumped together.)
