As long as a romance novel meets those criteria, it can be set in any time period.

In the Old Testament story of Susanna and the Elders, the account told by two breaks down when Daniel cross-examines them.

The roads dip in and out of counties at regular intervals and I have forgotten. He enters Tottenham by striking into a by lane at Ducketts Green Ducketts Common and cantering easily along in the direction of Tottenham. No one but John would be! Criticisms of toll roads include the time taken to stop and pay the toll, automated toll paying systems help minimize both of these. To ensure accuracy, Heyer collected reference works and kept detailed notes on all aspects of Regency life, while some critics thought the novels were too detailed, others considered the level of detail to be Heyers greatest asset.

Locally sourced meat from a farm only 2 miles away is served in the restaurant, where guests can dine beside an open fire. Hardcover books are more costly to manufacture. The opening scenes of the men trying to rob the train were pretty exciting and the ending with Hart trying to track down the man who set him up also offers some nice tension. Soon Deering wants to start life fresh with them but his past is close behind. In all seriousness, if you've seen one Hart picture then you basically get the same story one film to the next but it says a lot about the persona of Hart that he managed to make each film so fresh and exciting even when it offers up nothing new.

Tom Jordan does a very good job playing the snake who turns Hart in. It is very unusual for a book that was first published in paperback to be followed by a hardback, an example is the novel The Judgment of Paris by Gore Vidal, which had its revised edition of 1961 first published in paperback, and later in hardcover.
