The Piratical Miss Ravenhurst

Ralph Fiennes as Onegin
I've run out of hot Regency men and must resort to the Russian version.

Fiennes is bald now - how depressing.
Many of the best regency-period romance novel titles are alliterative. And by the best I mean unintentionally funniest.

Ardent Lady Amelia
Arrogant Lord Alistair
Dreadful Duke
Errant Earl
Heartless Lord Harry
Husband for Christmas
Improper Duenna
Incorrigible Rake
Lord Wicked Wolf
Petronella's Waterloo
RIghteous Rakehell
Torpid Duke
The Piratical Miss Ravenhurst

And speaking of romance literature - , somebody wrote an entire novel that is basically kinky fan fiction based on Jane Eyre: Reader, I Married Him - "St. John, who fears he’s lost his nerve as a con man, becomes Jane’s lover with reenactments of her sadistic Lowood School memories, and love sets him off on a new adventure in pursuit of Jane."

I don't know if I could read such heresy...
