Reviews

Lucinda Brant’s sweeping family sagas are a perfect reminder of why I fell in love with historical romance —Cheryl Bolen, New York Times bestselling author

 

You will once again be reminded why Lucinda Brant’s books are such a treasure. —SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STAR TOP PICK

The energy starts on page one and never lets up. Twists and turns, dramatic revelations, and some enjoyable chaos make this a book that keeps the reader turning pages. Highly recommended! — Fiona Ingram, Readers’ Favorite 5 STAR MEDAL WINNER

Lucinda Brant fully immerses the reader in the world of Georgian England, keeping you turning pages, or listening late into the night as the case may be. For those historical romance fans who have been gobsmacked by Nicholas Boulton (as a narrator), I am thrilled to report that Alex Wyndham is every bit as good. His narrative voice is deep and lovely. I unreservedly recommend that you listen to Midnight Marriage.—Lady Wesley, Romantic Historical Reviews audiobook review

The dance she never dared to dream of...

One year after a carriage accident killed her parents and left her seriously injured, Lavinia Montgomery has finally learnt to walk again – just in time to make her societal debut. Yet while the beautiful debutante’s body may have healed, she hides a broken heart.

Before her injury, Lavinia had exchanged letters with a man she knew to be the love of her life – despite never having set eyes on him. But when she feared she’d be crippled for life, she made the heart-rending decision to let him go...

Randolph James Caulfield, Earl of Penwick, is betrothed, but cannot forget the words he once received from a woman whose name he knew, but who he never had the chance to meet. So when, at a ball, his dance partner is introduced, he can’t believe his luck. One thing is certain: if this really is his debutante, he won’t lose her a second time...

Fans of Regency romance will adore Anabelle Bryant’s Regency Charms series:

1. Defying the Earl
2. Undone by His Kiss
3. Society’s Most Scandalous Viscount
4. His Forbidden Debutante

Praise for His Forbidden Debutante:

‘Simply a breathtaking romance. I laughed, I cried and I totally loved it!!!!!!’ – Lori Belcher

‘Livie and Randolph's story was utterly beautiful. To know that true love developed from being a pen pal. The entire story was a gorgeously choreographed dance that Livie and Randolph executed perfectly. I must buy the entire series now. Kudos to Anabelle Bryant for writing such an amazing love story.’ – Willa Robinson

‘Charming and romantic!’ – Nicole Laverdure, via Goodreads

Love and betrayal...Regency style

Readers who have followed the An Unlikely Husband series have only seen Holt Langford and his wife, Sophie, as the model couple: married, in love, sharing their hearts and dreams. However, there was a time when they didn’t share much of anything...and certainly not plans for a life together. You won’t want to miss this tale of scandal and seduction as the Earl of Westover falls for the daughter of his family’s sworn enemy. It's going to be a hard fall, fraught with denial, hurt, and revenge, yet the ultimate gift will be love, hope, and enough dreams to fill an earldom.

A Breath of Seductionwas previously published as The Seduction of Sophie Seacrest.

 

When Holt Langford, the new Earl of Westover, returns to England after twelve years at sea, he resembles more pirate than nobleman, a far cry from the scrawny youth whose father shipped off to become a man. No one recognizes him, and he’ll use this anonymity to enter a game of subterfuge in order to expose the scoundrel who has vowed to destroy Holt’s family business. 

Unfortunately, that scoundrel has a devoted daughter, Sophie Seacrest. Sophie can’t deny her attraction to the unorthodox stranger who stirs her blood and makes her think things no proper lady should. Holt and Sophie are drawn into a seductive tangle and just when he’s about to reveal his true identity and his honorable intentions, she discovers the truth and must choose between love and family duty.

A fiercely loyal lady, along with her brooding duke come head-to-head in a battle of wills! An unforgettable Regency romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth.


He must steal a lady…then steal her love.


Desiring a man and never being noticed as more than his best friend’s little sister has Lady Ellie Trentbury finally consigning herself to the truth. She must move on, and preferably with a man who lives far away from her home in London where she need never be reminded of the duke who stole her heart. An elopement with an honorable American shipping merchant sounds perfect.


The Duke of Ashten has no choice but to bound into his best friend’s carriage when he discovers little Ellie is inside and intent on eloping with a man to Gretna Green who she barely knows. He can’t allow her to make such a terrible mistake, yet convincing her might mean giving into his desire for the golden-eyed enchantress who has followed him around since he was a lad.


Her pouty lips and bountiful charms can no longer be ignored, only convincing her of the truth of his intentions will mean jeopardizing both his sanity and a lifelong friendship as well.
