She Thinks She’s In Regency Times

But she’s really in middle Tennessee in 2013
By Jeff Salter

A young woman suddenly awakens after a terrible vehicle accident convinced she’s betrothed to a lesser British baron 200 years ago. But instead of a baron, she encounters a man named Earl… and this low-key, 2013 Tennessee farm isn’t anywhere near Regency England. An affectionate tweak of Regency novels http://tinyurl.com/jkq6j5k

Excerpt from a recent Amazon review:

5 stars
Fun, light and definitely great!
By Denise Keef on October 21, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with all of J.L. Salter’s books, I am always left with a “feel good” feeling inside. They are light, entertaining and fun stories to read. The Duchess of Earl was no exception! I absolutely loved this story and found myself laughing out loud all the way through it. The story was exceptionally well written and all of the characters are a hoot a minute! From the very beginning you are brought into the confused mind of “Georgette Heyer” who was involved in a car accident and who thinks she is in jolly ol’ England in the countryside and that is where the fun begins too! Don’t miss this one if you love a good story that will have you laughing and help you escape the real world for a while!

      thanks, Patty. It was fun to write and I was able to work in a lot of history about 1813.
      Got lots of help from my editor in reference to the names and “addresses” of barons, earls, and ladies.

      • My mother had a large dictionary that had all the intricate forms of address, casual, formal, in formal writing, what you say after the initial greeting, etc. of every possible rank, form kings/queens to third Knights of the Garter and dowager duchesses.I said to Joe only last week that I wish someone in the family still had that book.I look at old dictionaries when I run across them, but those are often recycled or trashed.
