Roby James started reading when she was four, writing when she was nine, and always got "talks too much" as a comment on her report cards. She fell in love with science fiction years before the field become respectable and with her husband about eight months before he became respectable. She has been running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon since 1975 (before rafting became fashionable); her wilderness experiences taught her that life does exist without technology. That was a valuable lesson, because right after she got her M.B.A., she ditched corporate America, where employers thought she should think the way they did just because they were paying her. She is grateful that science fiction, white-water rafting, self-employment, minimalism, and monogamy have all reached the mainstream now, because she's always wanted to be part of the gang.

An interesting Science Fantasy, sort of parallel universe sort of thing. One in which the butler would dispatch the dog cart to the station in 1818. Passenger railways arrived a little later than this 1818 especially in the south of England. There are other subtle differences in the parallel universe as well. In England at the time some prisoners were transferred to serve in the Royal Navy but they were transferred directly on board ship and wouldn't be allowed to drink in the ale house before hand nor would they be transferred to a commercial ship.
The book deals with wife beating, gypsy fortune tellers, unmarried mothers, forced marriages, people being burnt alive deliberately, homosexuality and its problems in Regency times. Oh and one mustn't forget the hero with his dark problems and rage that can only be solved by the love of the heroine.
I wouldn't say this was a traditional Regency but if you are into science fantasy it may appeal. If it was supposed to be a Regency then it needs proof reading by a good editor to take out the anomalies.
