Callie Hutton’s Favorite British Couples


DenyingTheDuke-500px (1)
I have written thirteen Regency novels. Regency is the period when the Prince Regent ruled England after his father, George III, was declared mad. The years that span that time frame are from 1811 to 1820, when King George III died, and the Prince Regent became King George IV. However, there are many books written in the years after that time that are considered “regency” by authors and readers alike.

Over the years, I have done a great deal of research, and my six bulging binders crammed with information on everything from types of carriages to women’s undergarments will testify to that. Since I spend so much time reading and writing about England, London, Bath and country estates, I thought about who my favorite British couples are. There are many, but I decided to write about one couple from real life, a book, a movie and TV show.

Let’s see how my list matches up with yours.

Book: When I asked who readers and other authors favorite British regency couple were, the same couple came up over and over. Amazingly enough, they are also one of my favorites. Devil Cynster and Honoria from Devil’s Bride by Stephanie Laurens are a couple who stick in your mind long after you’ve closed the book. They make an appearance in the rest of the Cynster family series, but their own love story sets the bar for romance. If you haven’t read it, do. You will not be sorry.
