Regency Romance Quiz

A little bit of frivolity to entertain. So if I was a regency heroine I'd be at home in an Amanda Quick or a Loretta Chase novel. I can live with that.


Oh dear, you are Bookish, aren't you? You are a
highly intelligent and witty bluestocking,
whose beauty is hidden behind spectacles.
Your dress sense is eccentric and a little
unfashionable, and you consider yourself
plain. You have very little use for men, who
find your knowledge of Shakespeare, interest
in politics and forthright speech formidable.
You are undoubtedly well-off. The only
reason for your presence in a novel of this
kind (which, I might add, you would not dream
of reading, although you have occasionally
enjoyed the works of Miss Austen), is your
mother, who is absolutely determined that you
will make a good marriage. Rather than
defying her directly, you are quietly
subversive, dancing with anyone who asks you,
but making no attempt to hide your
intellectual interests. The only person who
can get past your facade is the man who is
witty enough to spar with you, and be amused
at your blatant attempts to scare your
suitors away. While you will, no doubt,
subject him to a gruelling cross-examination
to find out whether his respect for your
intelligence is real or mere flattery, you
may be sure that he is your match, and that
you, he AND your mother will all live happily
ever after
