    Summer on the seaside . . . a perfect place for romance.Join us for three novellas in one collection:The New Countess, by Josi S. Kilpack Diane knows why the earl asked her to marry him; he needed a mother for his daughter, an heir for his title, and a hostess to assist with his position in Parliament. With two sons of her own, and no security to speak of, she never thought twice about accepting his proposal. Summering at his holiday cottage at the sea was meant to be reward for a busy first year as the new countess, and a time for her to rest before their baby is born.…

    Miss Lattimore’s Letter

    Hello fellow readers! I am delighted to bring you a review of Miss Lattimor’s Letter. This is the second book released by Suzanne Allain.

Here is a blurb from goodreads… Sophronia Lattimore had her romantic dreams destroyed years ago and is resigned to her role as chaperone for her cousin.

    A Captain for Caroline Gray

    Adventure on the high seas! What an exciting setting for a Regency Novel! Thank you for stopping in today to read an excerpt from A Captain for Caroline Gray by Julie Wright. Excerpt Captain Thomas Scott surveyed the strange man and woman who had boarded his ship. “It would mean ever so much to us,” the lady continued, “if you would be so kind as to place this package in the cabin of one of your passengers. She’s going to India as a bride for our son. Isn’t that ever so lovely?” Thomas tried to mask his disdain as the man attempted to hand him a parcel. “I am sorry,”…

    The Earl’s Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter

    I have to admit- I 100% judged this book by the cover. The Earl’s Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter has one of those couples on the cover that just melt your heart. Sigh. That lingering glance filled with love. It’s the very thing that makes perfect romances stories. Well, the cover did not disappoint. I adored this book. It has witty characters and a fast-moving and heart-wrenching plot. Even the secondary characters all feel as though they have a purpose. It captivated me from the first chapter to the last page. If you enjoy romance books that also send you down a rabbit-trail of historical research, this is the book…

    Gentleman Jim

    Welcome, fellow reader. If ever there was a book that does NOT need an introduction, I believe it is Gentleman Jim… unless you have had your nose stuck in a book for the last few months… which is also quite possible. If you have been here even a short time, you know how much of a Mimi Mathews fan I am. Her depiction of the Victorian woman is about as perfect as you will find in a Victorian setting for a modern reader. When I saw her new release, Gentleman Jim, was a bit of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, I squealed with delight. As a child, we watched…

    Regency Pen Pals

    In her book Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert says, “I believe that inspiration will always try its best to work with you– but if you are not ready or available, it make indeed choose to leave you…” The other morning while out for a walk the day was magical. As we lazily made our way down the path, the birds were singing, the crickets were chirping, then suddenly -I had a Big Magic moment. What if authors that I enjoy were to write letters for their fans to get to know them -but Regency style? I don’t know about you, but I was (and still am) pretty excited about this idea.…
