Can Horace the Cat Save the Day?

The perennially lazy and late Lord Devin is astonished when a petite virago called Wilhelmina accuses him of selling an unfit horse to a drayman. He isn't aware of the irregularities in his stables. Later, she foists a stray, starving kitten called Horace on him. But Hermione, his betrothed, hates cats. And Horace hates her.

Where will it all end? Will Horace have to go? Will Wilhelmina be able to save the ill-treated horses in London? Will everyone end up with the right partner?

This charming Regency story, set against the first Animal Rights Act of 1822, will warm your heart and make you smile. And Horace... well, you'll want to take him home.

The Only Regency Ever with a Hero on the Asperger's Spectrum!

Everyone thinks the Marquess of Hastings is odd. Elisabeth likes books more than men. A marriage of convenience. What can possibly go wrong?

Nowadays the Marquess would probably be described as being on the Asperger's Spectrum. He's good looking and rich but his lack of social skills make it hard for him to find a much-needed wife. He scandalizes the ton by putting an advertisement in the newspaper describing the type of spouse he requires and the marriage of convenience he envisages. Amazingly, he finds a suitable candidate. Elisabeth is an impoverished gentlewoman with literary aspirations.

But can this oddly-assorted pair possibly co-exist, let alone find happiness? This novel is a gently amusing look at an unusual but endearing Regency couple.

Can a Haughty Earl Find Love in the Country?
When a handsome gentleman driving his curricle much too fast splashes a country girl with mud, he's not expecting to find the love of his life.

She's affronted by his haughty demeanor but can't help being attracted to him. She is manipulated into accepting his proposal, though he's not altogether straightfoward with her.

Then a long-kept secret threatens their happiness. Whoever said the course of true love ne'er did run smooth was definitely speaking about this couple!
Though it can be read as a stand-alone novel, The Earl and the Mud-Covered Maiden is the first book in the House of Hale Trilogy. It introduces characters you will love to follow as they set out on their rocky path together.

Héloise Says No: A Regency Romance

Can an Earl marry a courtesan?

The lovely and mysterious Héloise Ramsay is available... for a price. The Earl of Dexter is prepared to pay it, and more, but she refuses him. He knows she's had other lovers, so why not him?

You will admire Héloise, love the varied cast of characters who populate her life, and sigh with contentment when she achieves the happiness she deserves.

Is Financial Security More Important Than Love?

Torn between her desire for independence and the prospect of a rich but lonely existence, can lovely widow Imogen Mainwaring decide to accept a man who everyone knows is a womanizing rake?

When Lord Ivo Rutherford offers Imogen Mainwaring his “protection”, she knows very well what it means, and it isn't marriage. She angrily refuses and turns instead to investing in the burgeoning railway industry and making money on the London Stock Market. Lord Ivo wants to forget her, but when he meets her again in London some months later, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to her.

Is he prepared to change his way of life and can she keep pretending she's happy on her own?
