Sick of indecent proposals from untrustworthy rakes? Be more discerning with your dance card and swipe right on only the most eligible and dashing suitors. Whether you want to avoid scandal, or embrace it, keep your name out of the gossip sheets and group chats with this modern take on the rules of polite society.

Putting a fresh spin on real Regency etiquette advice, A Regency Guide to Modern Life is a tongue-in-cheek handbook to navigating friendship, dating, work, summer holidays, social events, self-confidence and more - the perfect gift for fans of period dramas and Jane Austen.


Gentle reader, it's beautifully illustrated in cartoon fashion and packed with all kinds of modern dilemmas.
Lady A's advice is such fun - think Bridgerton's Lady Whistledown.
