Regency Dress

As readers of regency romance, I know you are well aware of the beautiful gowns and dress styles of the era. If you could, would you love to dress in such styles, or do you prefer simply reading about them?

I think the gowns are gorgeous, and I would love to wear one just once to a fun event. However, wearing all of the layers of clothes every day exhausts me just thinking about it -- as does the idea of having to change dresses throughout the day! I much prefer my sweats and t-shirts. The typical woman in the regency era, such as Olivia in my upcoming novel, wore a chemise, stays, drawers, petticoat, stockings, garter, and the dress itself. You will see that Olivia isn’t a fan...

A Broken Heart's Redemption

By Abby Ayles

Introducing the "A Broken Heart's Redemption" Novel - Discover NOW The New Historical Regency Romance Book by Abby Ayles!
Betrayed - Hopeless - Cynical - Romantic

Lucy cannot think of how to mend her broken heart after Duke Perry so cruelly manipulated her. And she cannot understand how all of society continues to fall for the farce of marriage. It is just a means to trade power and wealth, after all, isn't it? Her friends tell her to hold onto hope, her parents tell her to stop behaving so crudely, and her suitors tell her to treat them with more respect. But honestly, she does not wish to marry anymore. The more men she puts off, the better.

In Baron Andrew Jones she meets another cynical heart, a man betrayed by his former fiancée, who abandoned him whilst he was traveling. Like Lucy, he believes marriage is just a way for some people to gain control over others. Most around him are disturbed by his coldness and bluntness. But in this black heart, Lucy sees a few shreds of sweetness and hope which draw her in. Between their common suffering and these moments of tenderness, Lucy finds herself slowly doing something she had sworn never to do again: falling in love.

But the Baron is committed to a life free of all attachments, and Lucy is left with a terrible decision: Must she live her life as a mistress? Marry a man she does not love? Or commit herself to a life of chastity and pursue fulfillment through faith instead? Truthfully, none seem right for her. But can she win Lord Jones over before it is too late? Or is his heart 

"A Broken Heart's Redemption" is a historical regency romance novel of approximately 90,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Tempting a Marquess

By Georgette Brown

How far will this Regency miss go to tempt a marquess?

On the surface, Mildred Abbott is a proper Regency miss. But secretly compromised, she longs to explore the pleasures of the flesh. Engaged to an uninspiring sycophant, she asks the influential nephew of her patroness in debauchery to interfere and break her engagement. When her appeals to him fail, she decides to take a singular opportunity—a visit to the Château Debauchery—to experience one night of pleasure before she submits herself to a life of wedded dullness.

The Marquess of Alastair concerns himself with no one, but to appease his aunt on her birthday, he agrees to select one person whose interests he will look after. It was not his intention to choose the plain and simple Miss Abbott, but when she unexpectedly shows up at the Château Debauchery, his hand is forced. Knowing his aunt to be partial to the miss, he grudgingly decides to act the part of a gentleman and preserve Miss Abbott's honor by removing her from the Château.

But Mildred refuses to go until she has had her night of debauchery…

If you enjoy stories with headstrong heroines, devilish rakes, and plenty of heat, grab a fan (to cool you down) and a copy of Tempting A Marquess.
