Nel 2015 si è festeggiato l’ottantesimo anniversario di ‘Regency Buck’, considerato il primo romanzo storico ambientato durante il periodo della Reggenza (1811-1820): firmato da Georgette Heyer nel 1935, dava inizio a uno dei generi più popolari di tutti i tempi, il regency. Per celebrare quel romanzo e la sua autrice, Viviana Giorgi ha scritto per Emma Books un divertissement affettuoso che fin dal titolo riecheggia gli umori del genere e si ispira a quel mondo, all’apparenza popolato solo da duchi e conti e marchesi – spesso arroganti e libertini – e da ingenue debuttanti in cerca di marito o prede di cacciatori di dote. La Giorgi lo ripercorre a suo modo, con i toni ironici che caratterizzano la sua scrittura e cambiando un po’ le regole del gioco... In ‘Zitta e ferma, Miss Portland!’ ci sono, come è giusto che sia, un conte refrattario al matrimonio (addirittura due, per la verità); una giovane donna (Miss Portland, naturalmente) indifferente alle regole del ton e per nulla desiderosa di accasarsi; la season londinese in tutto il suo splendore e pure “un’estate da ricordare” (come direbbe Mary Balogh) nella campagna del Sussex. E infine, tra qualche scaramuccia, un duello mancato e un tentativo di fuga verso Gretna Green, l’immancabile happy ending.

As the millions of fans of Like Water for Chocolate know, Laura Esquivel is a romanticist whose novels explore the power of love and the truths of the human heart. She returns to those themes in Swift as Desire, the story of a loving and passionate man who has the gift of bringing happiness to everyone except his own wife. The hero of this novel is Júbilo Chi, a telegraph operator who is born with the ability to “hear” people’s true feelings and respond to their most intimate, unspoken desires. His life changes forever the day he falls deeply and irrevocably in love with Lucha, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy family. She believes money is necessary to insure happiness, while for Júbilo, who is poor, love and desire are more important than possessions. But their passion for each other enables them to build a happy life together -- until their idyll is shattered by a terrible event that drives them bitterly apart. Only years later, as Júbilo lies dying, is his daughter able to unravel the mystery behind her parents’ long estrangement and bring about a surprising reconciliation.
