Lady Victoria Courtney has abandoned hope of winning the heart of the dashing Richard, Marquis of Lansdon, but fate appears to have other plans. On a journey to meet her new stepmother, Victoria is mistaken for a woman of the London stage and impulsively takes on the role.
Before she knows it, she’s caught up in a masquerade, but when it’s over, will Richard believe she’s the heroine or the villain? Mistaken identities, separated lovers and love gone astray – it’s all part of the comedy in this Regency romance set in England during the time of Jane Austen.
“…a treat to any Regency romance fan, feeling reminiscent of Georgette Heyer at her best. This story seemed to mix the mistaken identities of Shakespeare’s As You Like It with the wit of Jane Austen. I was laughing throughout this book as I eagerly turned each page.”—Night Owl Reviews
“Funny romp, complete with mistaken identity, funny supporting characters, and relatively clean romance that is as sweet as it is enjoyable….I was thrilled to find another author, like Candice Hern, writing in the great tradition of the Heyer Regency.--Anne Glover, Regency Reader

Unrepentant rogue Giles Wexham, Earl of Daventry, wrings pleasure from every moment and likes his carefree life exactly as it is. During his summer retreat to the country, he becomes reluctant host and nursemaid to his former betrothed, a woman he’d thought long dead, a woman Giles had mistaken for a ghost while he found pleasure in another woman’s arms.
Unbearable pain and laudanum have kept Lillian Winter apart from society since the accident that ruined her life. She’s endured six years of agony at the hands of incompetent practitioners, and longs for an end to her suffering. Finding herself in the Earl of Daventry’s care brings surprising relief from her injuries, and a glimpse into the life denied her. Yet as newfound pleasures lower Lilly’s resistance to the wicked earl, a long-forgotten danger returns to stalk her.
Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits rather than the complications of society matches. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to “build” the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace’s colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires.
To further his own research on English society, Sebastian agrees to let Grace transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing—albeit fake—rake. Between secret lessons on how to be a rogue and exaggerated public flirtations, Grace’s feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn’t asked him to help her marry someone else...
Sebastian is in love with brilliant, beautiful Grace, but their bargain is complete, and she desires another. Yet when he’s faced with losing her forever, Sebastian will do whatever it takes to tell her the truth, even if it means risking his own future—and his heart.

Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Unfairly blamed for her mother’s sins, Lady Deborah Martin can’t seem to please her father. Then, in standing up for herself, she offends another important man in her life, handsome Lord Foxborough.
Treated as little more than a servant, this Regency-era Cinderella has her own plans to make a life on the stage, and if the men disapprove, they’d best watch out! And one in particular just might fall in love.
This is a lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending.

An Unexpected Passion
Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure. She won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power . . . and neither of them sees that if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything . . . including their hearts.
