I’ve almost completed a romance mystery, and have started another Regency fiction story. For some reason, I’m drawn back to the Regency period.
My Regency stories to date
Rufus Fenton, the Earl of Mainton, married his young wife Maria after four meetings. Her innocence terrifies him.
Although Maria loves her husband, and understands that men have needs which mistresses satisfy, she’s humiliated when her husband’s mistress appears at a ball covered in diamonds.
In 1806, Daisy, the lonely natural daughter of the Duke of Wellbridge, is shunned by her half-sister, and by her brother, the new duke. Her mother died when Daisy was small, leaving Daisy a gorgeous rope of expensive pearls. Her half-sister wants the pearls.
Athena Browne, the daughter of a butler and lady’s maid, was married to Lord Pennville at 17. Now 25, she’s been widowed for years. Her marriage to Pennville wasn’t consummated. She believes that this is her secret.
Esmée Garland’s life as a governess in Regency London isn’t easy. Unwilling to accommodate a lecherous employer, Esmée is currently unemployed.
Alone, in empty streets, early one morning, her acrobatics on a bridge might look as if she’s trying to commit suicide. She isn’t.
Newly married, the Countess of Devreath relishes her life. After all, just three short months ago, she was Minerva Chennelis, charity child. Raised in a vicarage, even though she’s the granddaughter of a duke.
Now she has wonderful clothes, a carriage, liveried footmen, and the Devreath sapphire collection. But there are challenges.
There’s something about the Regency…
I adore Regency fiction. I reread my favorite Georgette Heyers regularly. I’m looking forward to writing this new story; I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I’ll enjoy writing it.
