After a voracious romance reader had read an advance copy of my debut
historical romance, Private Arrangements, she emailed and told me that she
loved the book, but being a devotee of the Regency era, she was surprised at
how different and modern the turn-of-the-century setting felt. So when Fresh
Fiction asked me to guest blog, I immediately thought of a whirlwind
introduction to my favorite era for readers who might be unfamiliar with it.
La Belle Ã‰poque, aka fin de siÃ¨cle, aka the (more loosely defined) Edwardian
era, refers to a time period that comprises the last two decades of the
nineteenth century and the first fourteen years of the twentieth century, until
the outbreak of World War I.
