    The Elusive M Factor.

    I’m filling in for Megan today so I’m afraid the cool factor will be missing from your Friday post. My apologies in advance.

    Some of you may know that I am on Team Eric. But Megan is Team Bill. This picture is a good enough illustration of why that might be. Notice, please, that Bill, er, Stephen, is wearing the official New York uniform of black.

    Here’s another example of Megan-esque cool. Let’s just call it the M-Factor:

    As an example of how Megan is cool and I am not, when I Googled for photos of Clive Owens, I typed in Clive Butler because I was confusing Clive with Gerard. Not a mistake Megan would ever have made. Because I don’t want you to make the same mistake, here’s this:

    I think all three of these M-Factor men could play a Regency hero.

    Stephen Moyer as Mr. Darcy?

    Clive Owen as Captain Wentworth?

    Gerard Butler as Rochester? (OK, so that’s not Regency. It’s because I’m not cool.)

    How, where and when would you cast these men in a Regency Story? Feel free to chose a book.

    Moyer as Aiden Bedwyn From Balogh’s Simply series? Or is he more Wulf? Maybe he’s Wulf.

    I think Butler or Owens could play the lead of Chase’s Lord of Scoudrels.

    Go on. Speculate wildly. Call on your inner Megan and cast these men in a Regency Romance.

    Regency Hot Guy Post

    Much as I love Hot Guys (except Brad Pitt, of course), what does that have to do with the Regency?

    Never mind……. Who Cares? Megan’s Hot Guys blog was one of our most popular. Goodness, Megan received 30 comments! (nine of them from me complaining about Brad Pitt)

    In any event, I am, you know, always striving to be relevant and true to our quest to learn and share as much as possible about the Regency; therefore, today I am presenting to you my

    Regency Hot Guys

    These images were gathered on my 2005 England trip. I took photos of paintings and miniatures everywhere we went. If I had been organized, I would also have recorded who these gentlemen were, but, alas, when have I ever been organized?

    Vote for your favorite! Those of you who pick first can claim the gentleman, as we all claimed our favorites on Megan’s blog.


    Number One: Who else but Beau Brummell?


    Number Two: The Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know, Lord Byron

    Number Three: This fellow looks (gasp!) Victorian, but maybe you fancy all that facial hair.

    Number Four: Perhaps you cannot resist a man in uniform.

    Number Five: Or maybe this sensitive Regency fellow pushes your “hot” button.

    Number Six: Maybe you prefer a man who is more serious.

    Number Seven: Or you might like your Hot Guy to be a little more…Georgian, so you can run your fingers through his powdered hair.

    Number Eight: Or perhaps you like him to be very Georgian. Nothing like a Hot Guy dressed in pink.

    Number Nine: Now here’s a fellow I would call the “Sean Penn” of the Regency.

    Number Ten: Last, but definitely not least, is this intense young man. Do you go for that long-haired type?

    Okay! Time to vote.
    And if you can identify any of my Regency Hot Guys (besides Brummell and Byron, I mean) please do so. You won’t get a prize but I’ll be grateful.
