Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark is a historical romance that explores themes of love, royalty, and family. Lady Anne needs a husband, and she feels the pressure from her family. The only problem is that her choices are very limited. There are not many men with titles to choose from and while she is not that romantic, she feels drawn to Lord Felsenworth, a man of lower rank, an earl. But can the Duke of Hesford, her father, allow her to follow her heart?

The story is set in Regency London and the setting is brilliantly depicted. Marriage was an alliance to strengthen royal families that sought to protect and keep their fortunes intact, and the author does a wonderful job of capturing the calculating and economic aspects of marriage. It was a time when parents had a strong say as to who their daughter should marry. In this novel, readers encounter a strong female character who is in a dilemma, unsure if she should follow her heart or the wishes of her father. The writing is beautiful and the dialogues reflect the manner of speech of the era. It is filled with intrigue, with twists that readers won't see coming and the unpredictable nature of the plot kept me turning the pages. Regency Love plunges the reader into the mind of a beautiful young woman faced with the most important choice of her life. The conflict is well developed, especially at the psychological level. TL Clark's novel is well-researched and beautifully written, an engaging story that captures the attention of the reader from the very first page. A great read, indeed.
