Laura Paquet: "The Incomparable Cassandra" - Enjoyable Regency, in which not a whole lot "happens", but rather the greatest hurdles the hero & heroine have to overcome are their misapprehensions and misconceptions about each other - and themselves. Although, of course, there's the incident with the fortune hunter...

If you are a fan of Regencies, don't overlook author Georgette Heyer. My favorite after Jane Austin.

Peerless comedies of manners :) She's one of my favourite authors, though her Regency is truly as artificial as any fantasy novel, it's a brilliant place to visit.

One of my other favourites is Paul Doherty - I love medieval mysteries/murders and his just push all my buttons.

The Second Duchess by Elizabeth Loupas, inspired by the poem "My Last Duchess" by Robert Browning. It's a historical murder-mystery-romance. The prose is so, so gorgeous. A beautiful book with a dark atmosphere.

I also enjoy historical romance, from authors like Courtney Milan and such.

I'm currently reading Ruta Sepetys' The Fountain of Silence. Salt to the Sea is also in my wishlist.
I also enjoy historical romance like Lisa Kleypas' or Julia Quinn's.
