on June 6, 2017

The Most Dangerous Duke in London is my 29th novel. It is the 23rd one set in the long Regency of the early 19th century. And once again, none of my characters go to Almack’s. I don’t know why they never do. It just never comes up. My characters have other things to keep them… Read More

Remember When Opium Was Legal?

on May 31, 2017

by Bronwen Evans Okay, I’ll prefix that title by explaining that I write early 1800’s historical romance.

on April 14, 2017

Any author’s first book–even published years late–is the dearest to her heart and this is mine, La Belle Christiane. When I began writing my first manuscript, I literally ran after my two toddlers with a clipboard in my hand and wrote whenever they paused. 🙂 I wrote that story without knowing anything about the fiction… Read More
