I can't actually remember which of their books have epilogues, but I'd recommend Loretta Chase, Lisa Kleypas, and Laura Kinsale. I know at least some of their books do have epilogues.

Have you tried Tessa Dare? I have been meaning to check out some of her books because my reading twin loves her. I have also heard a ton of good things about her books from other sources.

Check out Tessa Dare's A Week to be Wicked. Witty dialog, likable characters, very enjoyable.

The Vicar's Daughter by Deborah Simmons
Bewitching by Jill Barnett

Both, I think are funny. Not sure about the epilogues.

Lots of good suggestions here! You don't mention Amanda Quick (a couple of hers have been recommended in other posts).

The Lavinia Lake/Tobias March series is 3 books, and is a continuing story, yet the mysteries/adventures are self-contained within each book:

Slightly Shady
Don't Look Back
Late for the Wedding

Another suggestion is "Lord and Lady Spy" by Shana Galen. It is a stand-alone.

One of my favorite Amanda Quick novels is "Affair," which is also a stand-alone.

Anything by Julia Quinn. Visit her website and see what appeals. A number of her books are in series, but most are OK as standalone. One I particularly laughed over was "What Happens in London."

There was a thread on witty historicals a while back:

Have fun!

Just to add one more...I really loved The Other Guy's Bride by Connie Brockway, and if you haven't read the previous book...My Dearest Enemy by Brockway.

1. Jennifer Ashley's Pirate Next Door was funny, especially when Grayson reads her list of prospective suitors.
2. Julia Quinn's What Happens in London had me smiling a lot, with some laugh out loud moments.
3. I second Deborah Simmon's Vicar's Daughter
4. Elizabeth Boyle's No Marriage of Convenience has Mason, a new earl with new wards hiring Madame Fontaine to teach his wards to attract suitors.
5. Eloisa James' When Beauty Tamed the Beast had good bantering between the H and h.
6. Connie Brockway's The Other Guys Bride also had bantering that cracked me up.
7. I agree with the recs for Tessa Dare's new one, A Week to be Wicked, especially the first half of it.
8. Katie MacAlister's Noble Intentions
9. Lastly, Amanda Quick's Mistress had some fun humor, especially when they go to a house party so Iphenia can see the Temple of Vesta and Marcus breaks a rule.
