I love the formal manners of the Regency era...but sometimes they can be a bit too much. Today I'm at Collette Cameron's blog discussing formality, with particular reference to how well it's portrayed in the BBC series Pride and Prejudice (yes, the one starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, which I simply can't get enough of, in common with a great many other people).
Also, I'm giving away a copy of To Kiss a Rake (or another of my books--winner's choice). Please come on over, tell me what you like or dislike about formal manners then and now, and you just might win!
See you there!
Just for fun…”Ask Mr. Language Person.”
