Good Ton - A resource for readers of Regency romance novels

Welcome to Good Ton, a rebirth of one of the most comprehensive sites on Traditional Regency Romance.

*Disclaimer: Much of the content on this site is archived from the original creator of Good Ton. I take no ownership of that content.

Tomes of the Ton

Thousands of Traditional Regencies, listed by author, most with plots and characters and many with ratings. Author listings include pseudonyms & web sites. There is also a Regency Story Collections page listing anthologies by theme.

Thank you for visiting.


Questions? Would you like to submit some content to the site? Shoot me an email at - we'll figure something out. I'm afraid I will most likely not be able to help find a forgotten book, since the original creator of the site is no longer around.
