And in case you guys are wondering what I wish were still around from Regency England, it's the formalities: I wish a guy would walk up to me and bow so I could curtsy! Something about it just seems romantic.
And for those who didn't win: Go buy a copy of THE SEASON. The chemistry between Vivi and Gavin jumps right off the page, and the details of Regency england are elegant and vivid. This book quickly jumped into my top-five-all-time-favorites when I read it, so you won't want to miss it!
