on July 12, 2017

by Amy Jarecki Who doesn’t have a few guilty pleasures? That said, I always ask myself, hey, if it’s pleasurable, then why feel bad about it? Then I remember how my mother filled my head with “must nots” and piled on the guilt—sometimes for really silly stuff. And then I thought…guilty pleasures have to be… Read More

Too Busy to Bother with Almacks

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

on May 31, 2017

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

What We Do For Family

on November 21, 2016

“Where do you get your ideas?” It’s a question I get asked all of the time—as do many authors I know.  The answer is varied.  I get a lot of ideas from my research.  Or from a song or a snatch of random conversation.  Or just from out of the ether.    But curious people… Read More
