My name is Neha Patel. I am in my twenties, and I live near San Francisco, CA. I love to read! In fact, it’s my favorite pastime. I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t curl up with a good book. If I had to choose a favorite genre, it would have to be historical romance, or more specifically, regency romance. It is my go-to genre whenever I am in need of a mental boost. The characters, the language, the opulence and grandeur, the society norms, the tinkle of china, the rivalries, the passion, and the decorum all please me to no extent. Reading regency romance allows me the immense satisfaction of being transported back in time to a place where sophisticated insults and witty repartee ruled the day-to-day conversations among the gentry. Although the true lives of the aristocracy will always remain a topic of great debate, historical fiction offers me a glimpse into the aristocratic lifestyle through a perfect blend of fact and fiction that makes me yearn for even more.
