Does anyone have an recommendations? Love this setting, but I can't really find a lot of works that feature it.

I've read Marsha Canham, Eloisa James and Jane Feather.... on the look out for more.

Julia Ross' books are Georgian. Also try Elizabeth Hoyt.

Lucinda Brant has some titles:

Noble Satyr: A Georgian Historical Romance (Roxton Series)
Salt Bride: A Georgian Historical Romance
Midnight Marriage: A Georgian Historical Romance (Roxton Series)
Autumn Duchess: A Georgian Historical Romance (Roxton Series)

I purchased the first two titles but have not read yet. The sample read looked good though.

Through a Glass Darkly

This would likely fit the bill, if you haven't read it yet.

It's a great Georgian but it's not a Romance, more historical fiction with a romance.

Yeah, it's a fine line sometimes, but "Through a Glass . . . " does lean toward the epic saga side of the spectrum.

I second the nomination of Patricia Veryan. They're romances, but her Jewelled Men and Golden Chronicles books are wonderful. IMO she's VERY underrated as an author.

Let's not forget the "Prince" trilogy by Elisabeth Hoyt. I believe the "Maiden Lane" series is also Georgian.

Life Mask - historical fiction rather than historical romance per se, but if you love this period I think it might be worth your while to check out this book. HUGE cast of characters, two of the main plotlines are intertwined love stories that ultimately resolve into two HEA's (one heterosexual couple, one lesbian couple). What's cool is that almost all of the characters are real people who lived during the Georgian period, you can google them and find pictures of what they looked like.

Also by Georgette Heyer for this time period, "The Masqueraders".

I also recommend Veryan. She is very talented in the same scale as Heyer

Just want to say... thank you so much to everyone who posted recommendations! It was greatly appreciated.

I've read a few of the books listed on here, but a lot of them are new to me. I'm so excited to start reading.

At Your Pleasure was an incredibly good book. It takes place during George I so it`s a very early Georgian setting.
