Dukes, Lords, Gentlemen and Spirited Ladies...Valentines Edition @KMNbooks @lizbwrites

Karen: Romantic Regency Tales just in time for Valentine's Day! Elizabeth Bailey is here to tell us about the Valentines Edition!

Elizabeth: How does a gathering of British Regency authors all together in a box set come about? Well, we’re all members of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, which meets several times a year. We’ve known each other for years, and enjoyed reading each other’s books.

It’s fun to share, and we thought it would be of interest to our respective readers to try other authors writing in the same genre. What better way than by putting together a collection of our own favourite stories? Dukes, lords, gentlemen and spirited ladies. What more could one ask for Valentines Day?
Introducing REGENCY QUINTET – VALENTINES EDITION

Five sparkling Regency romances:

A Gallant Defender by Fenella J Miller, in which the resourceful Eliza Fox joins forces with Mr Fletcher Reed to save her family from villainous Lord Wydale.

The Silverton Scandal by Amanda Grange, a rip-roaring adventure with spirited heroine, blackmailer and a lord masquerading as a highwayman.

At the Duke's Discretion by Wendy Soliman. Surely there can be no future for Amos, who is a duke's heir, and Cristobel, a nobody with a criminal past?

Dance for a Diamond by Melinda Hammond, award-winning romance: autocratic Sir Laurence Oakford crosses swords with dance academy owner Miss Antonia Venn.

Fated Folly by Elizabeth Bailey, the sweet and poignant tale of the ogre and the minx in a marriage of convenience.
