Regency Reads for Tweens and Teens

As one Regency Reader recently wrote to me, the market for young adult historical romance sometimes seems dauntingly limited to Austen and Heyer.

I dipped my toe into the young adult (16+) historical romance with my novella series The Harrington House Party Series…and other contemporary authors have, too.  So young readers, I have compiled a little shopping list for you to take with you on your next visit to the independent bookstore in your hometown (or online!).

  • Anna and the Duke by Kathryn Smith
  • Emily and the Scot by Kathryn Smith
  • Tess and the Highlander by May McGoldrick
  • Victoria and the Rogue by Meg Cabot
  • Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot
  • The Season by Sarah MacLean

  1. Great idea! I think you should add The Agency: Spy In The House by Y S Lee to that list as well. While it’s more Victorian era it would be a great start for any teen looking to read books that take place prior to the 1900’s

  2. Here are some more I forgot to add:

    Aidan, Pamela.
    An Assembly Such as this : a Novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman

    Aston, Elizabeth
    The Darcy Connection

    Klassen, Julie
    The Apothecary’s Daughter

    McCullough, Colleen, 1937-
    The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet
