  4. Please welcome Caroline Warfield as she shares with us about the transition between the Regency and Victorian eras. Sometimes a lover of history backs into unexpected bits of fascinating facts. That is what happened when I decided to use the children of one series as the heroes of the next. Their ages forced me to … Continue reading » The post Upheaval and the Push For Reform in the 1830s appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article

  8. Love, love, love. Brilliant writing and story. Wickham's exploding gun hair raising ending was spectacular and self induced - death by laudanum overdose to counteract the pain - his whole ending was priceless. Thank you for your stories.

  9. “Polly put the kettle on, we’ll all have tea.”~Charles Dickens (1812-1870) Barnaby Rudge Since its popular introduction by Catherine of Braganza, in 1662, tea in Britain was an expensive commodity It was so expensive it was usually kept under lock and key, protected from pilfering by the servants. Both the cupboards and the tea caddies … Continue reading » The post Taxed, smuggled and adulterated: Tea in Britain appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article
  10. OMG! What a cliff hanger! You left us hanging at the precipice. We have bloody fingernails from trying not to slipping into oblivion. All the uninvited guests that are now at Darcy House, now the dastardly, deranged Wickham appears bent on total destruction. If only Aunt Catherine's cane whipped the arm the gun was in, dropped it to the ground, firing at the floor. Nobody but Wickham deserves to die - not even Lady Catherine. 

  11. Applause for Georgiana and Lydia. Caroline certainly deserved the set down and Georgiana did a remarkable rendition of Lady Catherine, but Miss Lydia wins the prize for putting her parents in their place. Both Mr. a and Mrs. Bennet needed a face slap. Given by her most precious daughter: priceless. Hopefully, flight of foot, dastardly Wickham will get his comeuppance in the next chapter. His days are hopefully numbered. Loved opening my email to find another chapter today! 😀

  14. Getting him in a vice grip is good. He will eventually crack and do something even dumber than he's been doing. Need to do a door to door surveillance. Probably within a couple of houses. Take him down London. Good philosophy in dealing with Wickham: Shoot to kill, ask questions later. 

  15. This is such a good story. Am anxious to see how you hang Wickham with his own perfidy. Beginning to envision the knotted rope around his neck drawn tighter than a cravat! Caroline needs to be set down to permanently remove her from any decent society. Maybe strangled by a cravat! Then, there is Lady Catherine: maybe her brother will finally shut her up. The three evils of Darcy's world. May they RIP. Death is the only solution for all three or transportation to Australia on a leaking ship out of sight of land. Love the newspaper article and cartoon. Wickham's treachery is now exposed and hopefully he is caught quickly. Also, hopefully Lady Catherine doesn't know about Georgiana. I can see Wickham's plan of treachery in exposing her to Darcy's wicked aunt and using it as a blackmail attempt. Lord Matlock better be behind his niece and nephew. Cannot wait for your next chapters.

      Thank you so much for your comment. What I will reveal is that all three will get what is coming to them in a very Fitzwilliam Darcy manner. Hugs! I need to type.

  17. A proper high tea is the perfect way to welcome the start of spring. This weekend I was invited to speak at the Lake Windsor Springtime High Tea, in honor of their late founder, Susan Boswell. The pleasure was all the greater knowing the event supported the Alzheimer’s association and the Windsor Lakes library.

  19. Hopefully Wickham's last days of freedom and life are coming to an end. May the hounds of HELL pursue him to his end.  No loss to society, even the lowest and uneducated person has more value than George Wickham. Darcy's reaction to Wickham's spending his money by forgery was brilliant.  Love Darcy's complementary remarks about Mr and Mrs Bennet in relation to Elizabeth's life. She birthed Elizabeth, her only usefulness in Elizabeth's life. Another useless being in most Pride and Prejudice Variations.

  20. Will Mary Bennet find her happy ending under the reign of the Queen of Rosings Park?

  21. Changed my mind since chapter 23. Knee in nuts wouldn't be enough to stop Wickham. Castration, leading to bleeding to death, an option, but by far the best course of action is instant death by any means available. How Darcy has let this SOB live for so long is amazing. Of course, then there wouldn't be this nail bitting story. Drawn and quartered would be fitting, but a fifth horse attached to his nuts would be sent off well before the other four. Ah, yes, ultimate pain before life ending pain! You can surmise, I hate Wickham, and you've written him very evil indeed. 

  22. This is so good. Wickham needs to die! He's a threat to everyone related to Darcy. Yeah for Lydia for sharing needful information. Heel on top of his instep, knuckles at his Adam's apple, she should have made it a trifecta - hardy knee kick in groin. 

  23. The Hardwicke Marriage Act laid out the path to the altar for regency couples Engagements in the regency era were generally brief, often only a few weeks long. Why the hurry? Since premarital sex was common and the birth of illegitimate children problematic for inheritance, parents preferred to see couples married sooner rather than later. Reading the banns or … Continue reading » The post Hardwicke Marriage Act in Jane Austen’s World appeared first on Random Bits of Fascination. View the full article

  26. I feel a bit like a Regency romance heroine–a weekend of doing nothing but dancing and flirting with my Mr. Darcy. That in a nutshell was the Set for Spring weekend this year. Perhaps I should pause a moment and explain. My Mr. Darcy and I belong to our local traditional dance society.

  28. #30 Cat won’t stay filed People ask all the time, how long does it take to write a book.
