Some of my friends think that Regency men are the Uber Romance Hero, and gave me their top three reasons. I agree Regency men look good, live in a world filled with titles, and appear to live a life of leisure. I enjoy Mr. Darcy, but Regency men are all too tame. Let me give you my top three reasons why I think Medieval-Renaissance knights are the best:
Knights, not only had to prove themselves worthy on the field of battle (for his king, the damsel or even for himself) but also had to learn to balance the command and control needed to succeed with their own wants and desires. It's a lesson Lord Arik learns in KNIGHT OF RUNES.
What do you think? Regency heroes or Medieval-Renaissance Knights? Or something entirely different?♥
