Gleason and Robins

I've started reading Colleen Gleason's Regency vampire slayer novel, Rises the Night. So far, rather than reminding me of other paranormals, it reminds me of Madeleine Robins' Sarah Tolerance books. I think it's tone; neither author over-glamorizes the period, and of course both are alternate universes. And although set in a period usually used for romances, aren't romance novels, even though the heroines' journeys have romantic/erotic aspects.

I'm not very far into the Gleason, so I can't comment farther yet.
