Once upon a time nine historical romance authors created a fairy tale inspired Regency world…

Resisting Romeo by Samantha Grace
There was much excitement yesterday at the Clarendon Hotel when a French actress interrupted a tête-à-tête between two of London’s most eligible bachelors and quietly exchanged words with them. Mr. Russell Hawke was quick to escort her from the premises, making witnesses wish they had remembered to bring their ear trumpets to tea.

Enchanted by the Earl by Amanda Mariel
Lowly seamstress Rose Woodcourt shocked society by capturing Hunter Thorne the Earl of Aubry’s heart after he banished her personal wolf.

Wish Upon A Kiss by Meara Platt
Young ladies from the best families are clamoring to become May Princesses now that Winifred Kingsley, a young lady of little consequence, caught the eye -and captured the heart – of Ardaric, fourth Duke of Blantyre when he spotted her dancing about a maypole in her shockingly scanty costume.

A Duke Worth His Salt by Allison Merritt
Lady Eleanor Mortin managed to snag the reclusive Duke of Greenebuck, who is not only writing fairy tale endings for his novels these days, but also living one with his new bride.

Masquerading as a Miss by Ari Thatcher
Just weeks after he was reported as drowned in that shipwreck, Lord Spalding appeared with a mysterious young woman who claimed to not know who her relations were. I daresay she has none and is eager to secure a match with Spalding, who as you know will one day inherit the earldom.

Searching for my Rogue by Dawn Brower
Upstart American, Alys Dewitt snared the Duke of Weston, one of England’s most sought after bachelors proving love is descending us all into madness.

Irish lass Maeve O’Malley landed a blow to the hearts of innumerable smitten girls when she tangled Mr. Galen Mornay into knots of the nuptial variety.

Taming Beauty by Lynne Barron
Not only did the scandalous Lilith Aberdeen manage to bring the beastliest of barons up to scratch, but she did so only days before Lord Malleville was to marry her sister.

Stealing a Lady’s Heart by Tammy Andresen
Lady Charlotte Beaumont, first cousin to the Prince Regent, was seen gallivanting through Scotland with four eligible bachelors and no chaperone. This shocking lack of decorum is not the first from the lady but most certainly the worst. One simply must wonder if nuptials are soon to follow.

Join us on a Regency adventure of love and romance in the limited edition box set Once Upon A Regency: Timeless Tales And Fables! Set includes 9 never told before stories.


My story is titled Searching for My Rogue. It is about a woman from 2015 who falls through time to 1815 and finds her Duke charming ;). It has elements from Alice in Wonderland. Here is a teaser for it.


“Alys wait…” She either didn’t hear him bellowing or she ignored him. He didn’t know which it was, but it was clear he had to go after her. James bolted down the hall following the path she’d taken.

The poor thing was confused. He had to catch her before she hurt herself further. He’d summon the doctor again. She’d need something the calm her down, perhaps he’d know better how to care for her malady.

Alys stopped at the top of the stairs, resting her hand on the balustrade. Her breathing was ragged. Her gaze fell on his when she glanced briefly behind her—then she skipped down the steps two at a time. Right before she reached the bottom, she tripped over her skirts and tumbled over the remaining few steps.

Bloody hell. The chit was going to be the death of him. James quickly followed her down and kneeled before her. “Are you all right?”

“Damned skirt is too long,” she muttered. Alys turned onto her side and glared up at him. “Of course I’m not all right, but nothing is broken. I’m sure I will have more bruises on top of the ones I already have.”

“Let me help you up.” James held out his hand to her.

“Thanks, I’ve got this.” Alys rolled onto her knees and hopped up to her feet. She turned to him and asked, “Where have you stashed Regina?”

“Pardon me?” James had no clue who this Regina was.

“My sister.” Alys rolled her eyes. “Where is she?”

James studied her for several seconds. She had mentioned something about her sister being devastated about Edward’s death. Perhaps she had been on her way to meet up with Regina for their wedding—not hers, as James previously assumed. Where her sibling was, though, he had no idea.

“I’m not acquainted with you or any of your family members.”

“I’m not in the mood for games, Bradford.” Her lips pursed up in displeasure. “Don’t make me hurt you. I’m well versed in all the areas to do the most damage to a person’s body.”

James rocked back on his heels. Both statements had him reeling. What order of woman was this standing before him? She threatened his person and didn’t have a clue who he was. This Bradford again—he hadn’t misheard her before—was clearly someone she didn’t like very much.

“My name is not Bradford.” He looked her up and down; trying to understand how a little slip of a woman could possibly do him any harm. “How do you propose to overpower me enough to impart any sort of damage to me?”

Her mouth fell open. Silence reigned throughout the room. James took advantage of her surprise and scooped her into his arms. Alys reached up quickly to wrap her arms around his neck, a reflex to catch her balance. “Put me down you big oaf,” she demanded.

“Wilson, fetch the doctor at once,” James bellowed. He switched his attention back to Alys and explained, “You require rest. The doctor left explicit directions. The maid I assigned to your room should not have allowed you to leave your bed, let alone get dressed and run around in your condition.”

James spun around and began to ascend the stairs once again. The lady was going back to her bed, whether she liked it or not. James sensed the harridan in his arms was about to give him hell for his high-handedness. It really was for her benefit. He’d deal with her wrath once he had her back in her bed.

“My condition?” She raised an eyebrow. “What condition is this? I can assure you I’m fine. Just a tad banged up.”

“Banged up?” James frowned. “You speak so strangely sometimes.”

“Kettle? Black? You’re acting out of character a bit.” She snorted. “Since when are you not Bradford? What are you going by today? Decided you needed a little change in your life?”

“I’ve never been, nor will I ever be, called Bradford.”

First let me tell you a little about my Marsden series and then I will give yo the instructions on how to enter to win the signed print of A Treasured Lily.

My Marsden books were never meant to be a series. The first book A Flawed Jewel was my first book I ever wrote. One day out of the blue I got an idea on how I could write more in that world. That is when the idea of A Treasured Lily and A Sanguine Gem became real possibilities, but it wasn’t until I wrote the short story A Crystal Angel that the other two books became a possibility. It was in that story that readers met Liam’s best friend, Noah. He was a mere 14 years old in that story but he left an impression and a need to know more. You see Noah in Liam’s book, as well as, his own, and his brother-in-law, Damian’s book.

Here is a list of reading order:

1-A Flawed Jewel (Pia and Thor)

1.5-A Crystal Angel (Pia and Thor, along with Lily, Liam, and Noah)

2-A Treasured Lily (Lily and Rand)

3-A Sanguine Gem (Gemma and Liam)

4-A Hidden Ruby (Rubina and Noah)

5-A Discarded Pearl (Pearla and Damian)

AHiddenRuby_600x900 (1)

The fourth book, A Hidden Ruby, and Noah’s story is my newest release. You can find it here:





The final, and fifth book, A Discarded Pearl is now available for preorder. It is scheduled to release on March 15. You can find it here:




Now I know you want to learn more about how to enter to win a signed copy of A Treasured Lily. Here is some information on Lily and Rand and then I will give you some directions.


What Lilliana Marsden wants—she gets. The thing she believes she desires most is to live in Charleston on a plantation. Her problem? Parents who refuse to listen to her. Lily decides to make her wishes come true and who better than a handsome American ship captain to help her.
Randall Collins finds Lilliana bewitching and quickly falls under her spell. When she asks if he can take her with him on his next voyage he finds himself agreeing—for a tiny fee. A kiss as payment and he’ll take her anywhere she wants.

As they set sail sparks fly between them. Will Lily find something more desirable than owning a plantation and can Rand convince her he’s the better choice?

All Books are BOOKS

I went to review a book recently that I loved. While I was there another review caught my attention. It said at the top this is not a book–it is a short story. Now let’s stop right there and think about that statement. What makes a book a book.

Simply putting words together and creating a story makes it a book.

That might be a little over simplified. Let me explain in depth. There are different lengths to stories, but all stories can be considered a book.

Example: Would you consider a children’s book NOT a book just because in a sense it is a short story? So I should not have paid over $10 for To Give a Mouse a Cookie for my children because that is not a book? Then why are they called children’s BOOKS?

Let me break things down more clear to you. Don’t say something is NOT a BOOK when it is in fact A BOOK. If you want to use proper terminology say it is not a NOVEL. Be careful even then. Did the author claim it was a novel? Then maybe (big maybe) you can bash them for it. However did they say it was a book?  (cause that is safe–because let me repeat ALL BOOKS ARE BOOKS) Look at it depth. What kind of book was it? (and I don’t mean genre) then stop and think about what you write in your review.

If you don’t think it is a book well what is it then? Why don’t you really believe it was a book? Let me give you something else to think about…

Here are some terms for you to consider (and these are general guidelines)

Novelette: This is actually more of the short story. It runs between 10-80 pages depending on the structure of the book and word count. (Generally between 2,ooo-24,999 words)

Novella: is longer than a novelette (duh right?) but shorter than a novel. This is anywhere between 80-180 pages depending on word count and page structure. (Generally between 25,000-49,999 words.)

Novel: This is where people seem to get confused. This is what they consider to be a “book”. Novels are full-length and anywhere between 150 to any page above that you can think of. Some consider the novel to start at around 50,00o words and above (what is termed a short novel).

There are a multitude of terms you could use to describe a story, but never ever say it is NOT a book. If it is published, has words, and cover art it is safe to say it IS a book. It is the type of book that you need to label it as (again not genre).

Please don’t insult an author and tell them their work isn’t a book.

Once Upon a Regency: Searching for My Rogue

Searching for My Rogue by Dawn Brower

I am going to talk a little bit more about my story in the Once Upon a Regency box set. The title of my story is Searching for My Rogue.

Each story has some elements from classic fairy tales or fables in it. Mine has some minor elements from Alice in Wonderland. The heroine falls through time after seeing a white rabbit. When she wakes up nothing is familiar and it is a very real possibility she’s gone mad, or at the very least everyone around her could believe her to be.

Here is a small (not fully edited) excerpt:

Alys sighed and clutched her bag at her waist. Perhaps he should remove it. It couldn’t be comfortable wrapped around her petite frame. James stood and hobbled over to the bed. His side itched and burned with each movement. He hissed as pain shot through him, but ignored it as best he could. Alys rolled over, making it easier for him to untangle the bag from her shoulder. He yanked it and stumbled backward. The bag hit the floor, some of the contents spilling out. The strange shoes, a weird tube, and a set of keys—James didn’t want to pry so he shoved it all back inside.

Alys moaned.

James rushed to her side. “Alys?”

Her sea-green eyes met his. “You’re a beautiful man. Have I ever told you that? No, why would I?” She cupped his cheek with the palm of her hand. “Tell me, do you still believe love is for fools?”

James sucked in a breath. “Yes, I do.” How had she known?

“Love is a dream—a whimsical journey constantly surprising you. It’s not meant for fools. At least, not in the way you believe. True love is a journey you willingly leap into.” She sighed. “You’ll see one day. I will help you.”

She pulled his head down and touched his lips to hers. Fire spread through him, lighting him up, burning him from the inside out—he had to stop her. He stumbled backward, putting distance between them. When he looked back down at her, her eyes were closed again.

“What kind of madness is she driving me to?”

“Your Grace, the doctor is here.” Wilson called from the entrance.

“Very well. I will be in my chambers if you need me.”

James rushed out of the room. His breathing heavy and tapered with each step he took. That had been way too close. What was the chit after? Was she truly mad, or did she believe he was his brother? An easy mistake to make—they were identical twins.

Oh, Edward, why did you have to die?

James punched the wall. He slid to the floor and cradled his head in his hands. Tears he hadn’t allowed himself before fell down his cheeks. His body shook, he groaned as agony overtook him. So much loss, too much responsibility, and not enough of him to go around—weariness set through him.

A bath was suddenly too much for him to bear. He told the maid to leave it until morning. He needed to rest. James’s life had just become inherently more difficult. He lusted after the woman he believed loved his brother. James could not, would not, give in to those urges.

He would take care of Alys, but he would not give her his heart. If he did, she’d own him. They hadn’t even had a real conversation—he doubted she’d even seen him when she opened her eyes. Whoever she had seen, he couldn’t live up to those expectations. She was wrong… Love, indeed, was for fools, and James would never play the fool.

Now here is a picture of what I think Alys and James look like!

Cover Reveal: Operation Wildcat

Today I have Megan Michelau on my blog with the cover reveal of her debut novel, Operation Wildcat. Read the blurb and her excerpt and afterward you will see the fabulous cover for her book. It is both sexy and hot ;)


Jess Baker thought being a leopard shifter in the small town of Blackford was the most exciting thing that was ever going to happen to her. She wanders through her days blissfully unaware of the dangers lurking behind the seemingly peaceful façade of her hometown. When the mysterious Caleb Marsh waltzes into her family’s diner, her attention is irreversibly drawn to him. Little does she know the intriguing stranger will be the key to her survival.

Caleb Marsh is a man on a mission. He’s been charged with the job of finding the men responsible for shifter deaths throughout the country. When he stumbles upon a local shifter willing to assist in any way she can he can’t refuse her. The lines between duty and love begin to blur and Caleb must do what he does best to protect not only her, but the shifter community as well. Will their bond be severed or will love triumph?


The waitress’s scent caught his attention as she came near. Shifter. He leaned back in the booth and allowed her to place a menu in front of him. She stared at him through suspiciously narrowed brilliant green eyes. The woman could be described as stunning, tall and lean with the legs of a runner. Her hair cascaded over her shoulders in soft gold waves, sun streaks throughout.

“What can I get you to drink?” She asked.

She wore a faded Motley Crue concert shirt, holey jeans, and flip flops. The smell of leopard radiated from her, filling his nostrils. But if he wasn’t mistaken there was more than one in the building. Caleb gave a quick glance toward the counter and saw two younger women huddled together. The one standing before him angled herself in such a way to make sure she shielded what must be her family from his view.

“Black coffee and a glass of water,” he ordered as he picked up the menu to browse. With a nod, the waitress left but returned quickly with his drinks.

“What can I getcha?” She asked, then pulled a pad of paper out of her back pocket and a pen from behind her ear.

“I’ll get a steak sandwich, rare, and mashed potatoes with gravy on the side.” She jotted down his order. When she glanced back up, they locked eyes. The challenge reflected in her gaze surprised him. An unmistakable seriousness and the promise of bodily harm were evident. It told him if he tried anything she didn’t like, he would be sorry. With a nod, she turned and walked away. She handed the order to one of the other shifters and sat down at the counter, gave him one last quick glance, and then returned to the paper that lay open in front of her. His cat’s curiosity piqued, he wanted to find out as much as he could about the bold woman. Strictly professional of course.

Caleb sipped his coffee and smiled. This job might be easier than he first expected. Not only had he found what he assumed was a family of leopard shifters, but they possibly owned the local diner where humans frequented. They may have heard something that would help.

The waitress returned with his order. She placed a porcelain plate holding a mouth-watering steak sandwich and potatoes on the table in front of him. “Can I get you anything else?” She crossed her arms over her well-endowed chest.

What would it be like to have her voluptuous breasts pressed against him? Snap out of it! He gave himself a mental shake.








Megan lives on seven acres of land in rural Alberta, Canada and enjoys the simple country life.


Paranormal romance allows her to create the places and characters she has always wanted to read about. She enjoys bringing her stories to life every chance she gets. When she isn’t writing she’s spending time with her husband and daughter whether it’s camping, riding ATV’s or just hanging out at home. Her family is the most important thing to her.

Cover Reveal: A Discarded Pearl

ADiscardedPearl_HiRes I am still writing this book. But I have cover art and I am not known for my patience. So I am sharing this even though I don’t even have a blurb written for the book. I will give you a little information on it though and an unedited excerpt to wet your appetite.

Take a moment to stare at my wonderful new cover. Then read through my quick draft of the blurb. Enjoy the excerpt and please comment and let me know what you think of it all. I look forward to your thoughts and insights into Damian and Pearla’s story.

Blurb (a quickie ;) )

Pearla Montgomery is nursing a broken heart. She was set to marry the Duke of Huntly only to have her wedding halted before they finished saying their I do’s. Her intended’s presumed dead wife interrupted the nuptials. In order to get away from the scandal she flees London. She meets a man that she could possibly give her heart to, but is afraid of letting anyone in. Running away starts to become a habit she can’t break.

Damian, Conte Leone falls in love with Pearla the moment he meets her. Even if they met under the worst circumstances. Unfortunately for him he is the brother of the woman who interrupted Pearla’s wedding. A little detail the love of his life can’t seem to forget. Even if he has to chase her to the end of the world and back he will not give up on her. Damian sets out to win her heart and nothing will stand in his way.

They have many obstacles to overcome, but the biggest is Pearla’s own fears.  Can Damian convince her to let him into her heart and trust he will keep it safe always?


A small groan filled the silence. Perhaps she should check on her cabinmate. Who knows what they did to the poor soul. Pearla knelt down beside them. She rolled him over onto his back. Sunlight spilled across his face and she sucked in a breath. He had an angry knot swelling across his forehead, but everything else about him was perfect. He had inky black hair that curled around his shoulder. His face was almost too pretty to be considered handsome. She brushed back his hair to get a better look at his injuries. He moaned with her ministrations. His eyes flew open and she once again got the breath knocked out of her. His eyes were so beautiful. They were a silver gray that sparkled in the sunlight.

“Who are you?”

“I should be asking you the same. Why would Captain Blythe toss you in a cabin with me and lock the door?” Pearla shook her head. “What did you do to anger him?”

More importantly what had she done to deserve such ill treatment?

“I had the audacity to disagree with his boss’s treatment of my sister.” His eyes narrowed. “What did you do to anger him?”

She chewed on her bottom lip. “I don’t have any idea.”

“What is your name?” he asked.

She shook her head. “You first.”

He chuckled and then winced with pain. His hand flew to his forehead. “Fair enough. But have pity on me. I have one bloody hell of a headache.”

A smile twitched on her face. “I reserve the right to make life as difficult as possible sir. I do not know you.”

“I think I like you.” A cocky smile filled his face. “I am Damian Leone or Conte Leone if you prefer formality.” He lifted his hand and traced his fingers across her cheek. “If I get a choice I’d have you call me Damian.”

She raised an eyebrow. “Just Damian?”

“Yes. I have a feeling you and I are going to be spending a lot of time together.”

Pearla frowned. “I hope not.”

“Does my company displease you that much?”

No, how was she to explain it had nothing to do with him. This whole mess was not his fault at all. He was quite charming and beautiful to behold. She would have been entranced with him under other circumstances…

“It has nothing to do with you. I have to get out of this cabin.”

“I hate to tell you,” he paused and sat up, “but we are not getting out of this room for some time. The ship is already sailing out of the harbor.”

Pearla cursed and stood up. She headed over to the porthole and looked outside. The blasted man was right. They were already well on their way out of the harbor. How long had she been in the cabin before they tossed him inside with her? It didn’t matter. They were stuck together. She’d just have to make the best of it.

“Come cara and tell me how you found yourself in the company of such disreputable ruffians as those in the employ of Paolo, the Duca d’Sordillo.”

“Who?” Pearla sat down on the bunk and huffed out a breath. “I’m not familiar with that name.”

“No?” Damian frowned. “That doesn’t make sense. Why would they stick you with me? Tell me your story maybe I can figure it out once I have all the information. Why are you on this ship?”

“It’s kind of a long story.”

How to explain her failed wedding to a stranger… It wasn’t something Pearla looked forward to. She didn’t even want to think about it let alone put voice to it.

“I have nothing but time cara.” He waved his hand toward the porthole. “I think it’s accurate to assume we will be confined to each other’s company for the foreseeable future.”

“Quit saying that,” she demanded.

“What?” he asked, confused.

“I am not your darling.”

“Ah” His lips tilted into one of his half cocky smiles. “You have yet to tell me your name. What else am I to call you?”

Why did he have to have a valid point? More importantly why did she still refuse to tell him her name? Maybe it was the fantasy of it. There was a certain romanticism to it all. Instead of telling him her name she told him her story. This was exactly what she needed upon further reflection. A stranger was much easier to talk to then friends. Gemma had meant well but she could see the pity mixed with concern in her eyes.

“Today was supposed to be my wedding day,” she began. When she finished a loud whistle filled the room and then he cursed more colorfully than she had.

“Bloody hell you’re Miss Pearla Montgomery.” He scrubbed his hands over his face. “It all makes sense now.”

“Well I’m glad you understand what is going on.” She crossed her arms across her chest and glared at him. “I sure don’t. I’m as confused as ever.”

Like how the hell did he know who she was? She hadn’t mentioned names. All she told him was her fiancé’s presumed dead wife interrupted her wedding. The desire to leave England had made her jump on the first ship available. Had rumors spread that fast already?

His next words made her heart almost stop.

“Rubina is my sister.”

She had the worst luck of anyone alive. Only she would have the misfortune of being stuck in a room with the brother of the woman who’d ruined her life. Someone out there truly hated her…

HIGHLAND DAWN…inspired by Lion of the North.

Loyalty, honor, and obligation dictate Keith Starkey’s return to his Highland wife and their loveless marriage. He must leave behind a shy English lass who nursed him back to life after he was gravely wounded and left for dead at the battle of Towton.

Daughter of a murderous traitor, Aurora de la Londe is abandoned by her domineering father when he switches his allegiance to the Yorkists.

She needs a champion, but Keith cannot be that man, despite his attraction to her.

The convent offers Aurora’s only escape from the desolation of a broken heart and the threat of vengeance from the Lancastrians for her father’s treachery.

It seems unlikely these two mismatched souls will find the path to happiness—unless fate intervenes.

She swore to defy him to her dying breath… But passion blurs the line between love and hate…

The bluest blood and the hardest heart… at least when it comes to marriage… The daughter of a duke and granddaughter of a king, Adele of Vannes was bartered at birth in a marriage treaty for the sole purpose of producing a royal heir. When her philandering husband is slain by Norse marauders, Adele’s only desire is to retire to the peace and solitude of a cloister—until the bishop decrees that she wed a savage Norseman. Adele knows that her beloved Brittany needs a strong hand to survive, but how can she ever reconcile her bitterness and hatred with the desire she feels for her mortal enemy?

She’s the jewel he seeks for his Breton crown…A Barbarian bent on building a dynasty, Valdrik Vargr, ‘the Norse Wolf,’ is renowned for both his bravery in battle and shrewdness in statecraft. Setting his sights on claiming the kingdom of Brittany, he knows that siring sons from royal blood would solidify his hold, but the woman he would claim as his queen refuses to have him. Will he fuel her hatred by taking her to his bed, or will the man who strikes terror in the hearts of men be reduced to wooing his bride?

Barbara Devlin


It is the tempestuous time of the Wars of the Roses and, as the Lancasters and the Yorks battle for the Crown, Lady Desiderata de Mandeviel is caught in the games men play in their lust for power and privilege. Contracted to wed from birth, she welcomes a union with the love of her life, the greatest lancer in England, Titus Saint-Germain. When her father delivers news of her betrothed’s untimely demise, and demands she marry another, Desi must choose between her heart’s desire and family loyalty. Will Desi trust her instincts or yield to paternal authority?

Harboring a secret, the truth of his parentage, imparted by his mother on her deathbed, Titus Saint-Germain finds himself trapped between two warring factions with no escape. A loyal Yorkist, the warrior knight serves with distinction and valor, until his own men, in the heat of battle, betray him. It is a scene eerily similar to the one that claimed the life of his father, the great Titus de Wolfe, at Towton, with a singular exception. Help arrives in the form of an unlikely ally—an uncle unaware of his brother’s progeny. Will Titus resist fate and deny his destiny, or will the Lone Wolfe, at long last, journey home to the Lair?




Bestselling author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller, but it was a weeklong vacation to Bethany Beach, DE that forever changed her life. The little house her parents rented had a collection of books by Kathleen Woodiwiss, which exposed Barbara to the world of romance, and Shanna remains a personal favorite.

Barbara writes heartfelt historical romances that feature flawed heroes who may know how to seduce a woman but know nothing of marriage. And she prefers feisty but smart heroines who sometimes save the hero, before they find their happily ever after.

Barbara earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
