Ruining Miss Wrotham - Emily Larkin Preview:

*Desert Isle Keeper* “Grabbed my attention from the first page and didn’t let me go until the end.” ~ Caz @ All About Romance Eleanor Wrotham has sworn off overbearing men, but she needs help to find her missing sister—and the man who steps forward is as domineering as he is dangerous: the notorious Mordecai Black. The illegitimate son of an earl, Mordecai is infamous for his skill with women. His affairs are legendary, but few people realize that Mordecai has rules, and one of them is: Never ruin a woman. Can Mordecai help Miss Wrotham without ruining her? "One of the most entertaining, heartfelt, and romantic books I have read in forever!" ~ Carla @ NetGalley Length: Full-length novel of 94,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England—with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. I think the series could also be labelled Regency Noir, because it falls on the darker, grittier side of the romance fence, although each book contains humor, too. The stories are emotional, but not sweet (there’s sex, violence, and my heroes do swear rather badly at times!). Why did you write this series? I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many, many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. What was the catalyst for this series? A magazine article I read in which celebrities were asked what magic power they’d choose and why. That got me thinking! (I’d choose shapeshifting, by the way.) How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!.

Someone is trying to destroy Cosgrove and his life is increasingly in jeopardy.

Resisting Miss Merryweather - Emily Larkin Preview:

*Desert Isle Keeper* “A charming, romantic novella that shows how magical life can be with the right person at your side.” ~ Sara @ All About Romance Sir Barnaby Ware made a mistake two and a half years ago. A massive mistake. The sort of mistake that can never be atoned for. He knows himself to be irredeemable, but the captivating and unconventional Miss Merryweather is determined to prove him wrong. The daughter of a dancing master and a noblewoman, Miss Merryweather had an unusual upbringing. She sees things no one else sees—and she says things no one else says. Sir Barnaby knows he’s the villain in this piece, but Miss Merryweather thinks he’s the hero—and she is damnably hard to resist… “Larkin has a writing style that I adore, and I wholeheartedly recommend this novella.” ~ Lady Blue @ Romantic Historical Reviews “A moving story, with characters brimming with life and emotions.” ~ NetGalley Reviewer Length: Novella of 33,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this novella? When I finished writing Unmasking Miss Appleby (the first book in the Baleful Godmother series) I was surprised by how sorry I felt for Sir Barnaby. He’d made a dreadful mistake and ruined the most important friendship in his life. I felt Barnaby deserved a chance to redeem himself, and I also felt that he and Marcus (the hero of Unmasking Miss Appleby) needed to be friends again if they were to be truly happy. How would you describe this book? Resisting Miss Merryweather is a novella about friendship, forgiveness, and falling in love. There’s also a little science, and some magic. Although it’s a companion novella to Unmasking Miss Appleby, it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She's why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over.

Primrose and the Dreadful Duke - Emily Larkin Preview:

*A double award-winning historical romance* An irrepressible duke, a bookish spinster, a devious murderer ... Regency house parties have never been so hazardous! Oliver Dasenby is the most infuriating man Primrose Garland has ever known. He may be her brother's best friend, but he has an atrocious sense of humor. Eight years in the cavalry hasn't taught him solemnity, nor has the unexpected inheritance of a dukedom. But when Oliver inherited his dukedom, it appears that he also inherited a murderer. Oliver might be dreadfully annoying, but Primrose doesn't want him dead. She's going to make certain he survives his inheritance—and the only way to do that is to help him catch the murderer! "I read straight through the night. I kept telling myself that I needed to put it down and get some sleep, but it was so interesting and exciting that I just had to see what happened next. Finally, at 7 am, I read the last word and thought 'Wow, just wow.'" ~ Barbara @ NetGalley Length: Full-length novel of 85,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with steamy love scenes *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Long Romance of the Year Award* *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Best Overall Romance of the Year Award* "I read it in one sitting.

An unusual heiress meets her match in this USA TODAY* bestselling Regency romance! "Unique and romantic and emotional and simply amazing." ~ NetGalley reviewer Letitia Trentham is noteworthy for three reasons. One, she’s extremely wealthy. Two, she can distinguish truth from lies. Three, she’s refused every man who’s ever proposed to her. Until Letty receives a proposal she can’t turn down. Icarus Reid barely survived the Battle of Vimeiro. He lives for one thing—to find the man who betrayed him to the French. He doesn’t want to marry Miss Trentham; he wants to use her talent for uncovering lies. Suddenly, Letty finds herself breaking the rules, pretending to be someone she’s not, and doing things a lady would never do. But her hunt for the truth may uncover more than one secret—including the secret that haunts Icarus day and night. The secret he intends to take to his grave...

Octavius and the Perfect Governess - Emily Larkin Preview:

A governess in jeopardy . . . and the marquis's son who goes undercover as a housemaid to protect her. Lord Octavius Pryor leads a carefree life, until the night he visits Vauxhall Gardens in the guise of a woman. At Vauxhall, Octavius discovers that being a female is very different from being a man. Annoyingly different, unpleasantly different—and when he encounters the lecherous Baron Rumpole, dangerously different. Determined to teach the baron a lesson, Octavius infiltrates Rumpole's household, where he meets the woman of his dreams: Miss Toogood, governess to the baron's daughters. Suddenly Octavius has three pressing tasks. 1) To teach the baron to keep his yardstick in his breeches. 2) To keep Miss Toogood safe. 3) To convince her to marry him.

The Spinster’s Secret - Emily Larkin Preview:

“Straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, despaired, and felt one with a character to this extent.” ~ Punya Reviews Matilda Chapple is penniless, orphaned, and dependent on her uncle’s meager charity—but she’s found a way to escape: she’ll write her way to financial freedom. When Mattie pens a series of titillating short stories, she starts earning money . . . and notoriety. Her secret is safe—until Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, agrees to uncover the anonymous author's identity. Can Mattie conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the virginal spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person? A Regency romance with a battle-scarred hero, an enterprising heroine, a gothic backdrop, and some of the worst food in England. **The Spinster's Secret is the second book in the Midnight Quill Trio, but may be read as a standalone.** Q & A with the author How would you describe this book? Good question! Um . . . a gothic Regency romance with underlying humor? By gothic, I mean that the setting is gothic: an isolated and gloomy manor with dark, drafty corridors and a miserly uncle. There are nightly readings of ‘improving texts’ and some truly awful food! Your hero and heroine are a little unusual. Tell us a bit about them. The heroine, Mattie, is six foot tall—which is a little taller than your average heroine! Edward, the hero, is even taller, and badly scarred from injuries he received at Waterloo. And when I say badly scarred, I mean really badly scarred. Did you do a lot of research for this book? I read two ‘titillating’ novels of the era, Fanny Hill and The Lustful Turk, which were quite ludicrous. The stories Mattie writes are just as silly! How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book?

Claiming Mister Kemp - Emily Larkin Preview:

A forbidden love... Lucas Kemp’s twin sister died last year. He’s put aside his mourning clothes, but not his heartache. If Lucas ever needed a friend, it’s now—and who should walk in his door but Lieutenant Thomas Matlock. Lucas and Tom are more than just best friends; they’ve been in love with each other for years. In love with each other—and pretending not to know it. But this time, Tom’s not going to ignore the attraction between them. This time, he’s going to push the issue. He’s going to teach Lucas how to laugh again—and he’s going to take Lucas as his lover... "Heartbreakingly gorgeous. Tom is the most incredible hero - patient, understanding, passionate, sensitive. Lucas is so proper and stiff, his struggles so very real and poignant. I love Larkin's stories but this one is exquisite." ~ M.C.E. Top 500 reviewer Length: Shorter length novel of 48,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency male-male romance with sensual love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When Tom and Lucas walked onto the page in Trusting Miss Trentham (the third book in the Baleful Godmother series) I fell in love with them both. I really wanted to know their story—so I decided to write it. I’m very glad I did, because it was so much fun! Lucas is my first ever virgin hero, and I really enjoyed writing his scenes. Claiming Mister Kemp was meant to be a novella, but it grew and grew and grew, until finally I had to admit defeat and call it a (short) novel. How would you describe this book? At its most basic, Claiming Mister Kemp is a friends to lovers romance, but it’s also a story about grief, and about two men finding the courage to love one another in a time when this was punishable by death. I think it’s the most emotional book I’ve ever written. Readers have told me that some scenes make them cry, which I take as a compliment! Claiming Mister Kemp is a Baleful Godmother novel, so both Tom and Lucas have brushes with magic—even if they don’t realize it. And although this book is a companion novel to Trusting Miss Trentham it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book will appeal to readers who love male-male romances, Regency romances, or both. Fans of KJ Charles, Joanna Chambers, and Cat Sebastian should particularly enjoy it..

Major Nicholas Reynolds returned from the Battle of Waterloo a hero. He’s had enough of soldiering; all he wants now is a bride ... but his scarred face sends young ladies fleeing. When a slip of her tongue brands the major an ogre, his chances of marriage disintegrate. Determined to put things to rights, Isabella sets out to revive the major’s marriage prospects. How better than for the two of them to indulge in a make-believe flirtation? They both know it’s not real, so where’s the danger? But Isabella is soon in over her head—and so is Major Reynolds. "This story has it all: damsels in distress, villains, heroes, romance, suspense, mistakes & misunderstandings, all wrapped up in one cannot-put-it-down story." ~ Goodreads reviewer (Lady Isabella’s Ogre is a new version of Beauty and the Scarred Hero, which was published under the penname Emily May.

The Fey Quartet - Emily Larkin Preview:

One widow ~ three daughters ~ four heroes ~ and some very dangerous Faeries. *The Fey Quartet romance novella collection is the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series.* MAYTHORN’S WISH For years the widowed Maythorn Miller has yearned for a man she can never have: the village blacksmith, Ren. But Maythorn lives near the border with Faerie, a place where unexpected things can happen... HAZEL’S PROMISE Hazel Miller is betrothed to a man who went off to earn his fortune—and never returned. Dressed as a boy, she sets out to find him, but the roads of Medieval England are fraught with peril. When a ragged stranger risks his life to protect her, how can she refuse his company? IVY’S CHOICE Ivy Miller is lame, but in a few days she’ll receive a Faerie wish. She could wish herself able to walk freely again...if her beloved sister didn’t need saving. But Ivy’s sister isn’t the only person in desperate need of rescue. A man trapped in the shape of a deer emerges from the forest. Can Ivy break the agonizing spell that binds him? Ivy has only one Faerie wish—but many choices. LARKSPUR’S QUEST Larkspur Miller is determined to earn a Faerie wish for her sister. She knows it won’t be easy—and that it will require a man. She’s chosen her man: Cadoc Ironfist, liegeman to the Lord Warder of Dapple Vale. But Cadoc is reluctant, and the task is far more dangerous than Larkspur realized... “Her haunting prose reads like Hans Christian Andersen for twenty-first century adults.” ~ Mindy Klasky, USA TODAY bestselling author “A storyteller to watch!” ~ Nalini Singh, NYT bestselling author Q & A with the author How would you describe the Fey Quartet novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are adult fairy tale romances. Each novella has a different feel to it--some are darker, some lighter. Themes include: wishes, secrets, new beginnings, dangerous live Faeries, dangerous dead Faeries, disguises, shapeshifting, telepathy, treachery, loyalty – and falling in love. Who would like this quartet of novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are romances with strong heroines, a medieval backdrop, and a dash of magic. They will appeal to romance readers, especially those who enjoy medieval romances or fairy tale romances. Readers who like historical fantasy and fantasy with strong romantic elements would also enjoy the novellas. How would you describe your writing? I’ve had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Georgette Heyer, all of which are massive compliments. An editor once said my writing reminded her of Lois McMaster Bujold, but she was rejecting me at the time, so that was more of a bittersweet compliment! (That book did sell once I rewrote it; it’s one of my Emily Gee fantasy novels.) What order should I read the Fey Quartet novellas in? Each novella can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them in the following order for the best reading experience: Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest The Fey Quartet novellas are the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series. The first six titles in that series are: Unmasking Miss Appleby Resisting Miss Merryweather Trusting Miss Trentham Claiming Mister Kemp Ruining Miss Wrotham Discovering Miss Dalrymple Happy reading!.

Trusting Miss Trentham - Emily Larkin Preview:

An unusual heiress meets her match in this USA TODAY* bestselling Regency romance! "Unique and romantic and emotional and simply amazing." ~ NetGalley reviewer Letitia Trentham is noteworthy for three reasons. One, she’s extremely wealthy. Two, she can distinguish truth from lies. Three, she’s refused every man who’s ever proposed to her. Until Letty receives a proposal she can’t turn down. Icarus Reid barely survived the Battle of Vimeiro. He lives for one thing—to find the man who betrayed him to the French. He doesn’t want to marry Miss Trentham; he wants to use her talent for uncovering lies. Suddenly, Letty finds herself breaking the rules, pretending to be someone she’s not, and doing things a lady would never do. But her hunt for the truth may uncover more than one secret—including the secret that haunts Icarus day and night. The secret he intends to take to his grave... "An amazing book which I read in one sitting." ~ Roses R Blue Length: Full-length novel of 89,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes *USA TODAY bestseller, Jan 2018. Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England – with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. I think the series could also be labelled Regency Noir, because it falls on the darker, grittier side of the romance fence, although each book contains humor, too. The stories are emotional, but not sweet (there’s sex, violence, and my heroes do swear rather badly at times!). Why did you write this series? I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many, many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. What was the catalyst for this series? A magazine article I read in which celebrities were asked what magic power they’d choose and why. That got me thinking! (I’d choose shapeshifting, by the way.) How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really! What order should I read the series in? Each book, whether a novel or novella, can be read as a standalone, but many readers prefer to read them in order. And although the series is set in Regency England, a quartet of medieval novellas form the prequel. The ideal reading order would be: The Fey Quartet (series prequel) Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest The Baleful Godmother series Unmasking Miss Appleby Resisting Miss Merryweather Trusting Miss Trentham Claiming Mister Kemp Ruining Miss Wrotham Discovering Miss Dalrymple Plus more interlinked Baleful Godmother series to come..

Dictionary of the British English Spelling System - Greg Brooks Preview:

This book will tell all you need to know about British English spelling. It's a reference work intended for anyone interested in the English language, especially those who teach it, whatever the age or mother tongue of their students. It will be particularly useful to those wishing to produce well-designed materials for teaching initial literacy via phonics, for teaching English as a foreign or second language, and for teacher training. English spelling is notoriously complicated and difficult to learn; it is correctly described as much less regular and predictable than any other alphabetic orthography. However, there is more regularity in the English spelling system than is generally appreciated. This book provides, for the first time, a thorough account of the whole complex system. It does so by describing how phonemes relate to graphemes and vice versa. It enables searches for particular words, so that one can easily find, not the meanings or pronunciations of words, but the other words with which those with unusual phoneme-grapheme/grapheme-phoneme correspondences keep company. Other unique features of this book include teacher-friendly lists of correspondences and various regularities not described by previous authorities, for example the strong tendency for the letter-name vowel phonemes (the names of the letters ) to be spelt with those single letters in non-final syllables..

At the age of five he was reunited with his father, the Duke of Vickery. His history is no secret—everyone in the ton knows of his miraculous rescue.

She has several herself—and one of those secrets is her ability to find missing people. When Alexander turns to her for help, Georgiana sets out to discover just who he actually is...

Claiming Mister Kemp - Emily Larkin Preview:

A forbidden love... Lucas Kemp’s twin sister died last year. He’s put aside his mourning clothes, but not his heartache. If Lucas ever needed a friend, it’s now—and who should walk in his door but Lieutenant Thomas Matlock. Lucas and Tom are more than just best friends; they’ve been in love with each other for years. In love with each other—and pretending not to know it. But this time, Tom’s not going to ignore the attraction between them. This time, he’s going to push the issue. He’s going to teach Lucas how to laugh again—and he’s going to take Lucas as his lover... "Heartbreakingly gorgeous. Tom is the most incredible hero - patient, understanding, passionate, sensitive. Lucas is so proper and stiff, his struggles so very real and poignant. I love Larkin's stories but this one is exquisite." ~ M.C.E. Top 500 reviewer Length: Shorter length novel of 48,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency male-male romance with sensual love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When Tom and Lucas walked onto the page in Trusting Miss Trentham (the third book in the Baleful Godmother series) I fell in love with them both. I really wanted to know their story—so I decided to write it. I’m very glad I did, because it was so much fun! Lucas is my first ever virgin hero, and I really enjoyed writing his scenes. Claiming Mister Kemp was meant to be a novella, but it grew and grew and grew, until finally I had to admit defeat and call it a (short) novel. How would you describe this book? At its most basic, Claiming Mister Kemp is a friends to lovers romance, but it’s also a story about grief, and about two men finding the courage to love one another in a time when this was punishable by death. I think it’s the most emotional book I’ve ever written. Readers have told me that some scenes make them cry, which I take as a compliment! Claiming Mister Kemp is a Baleful Godmother novel, so both Tom and Lucas have brushes with magic—even if they don’t realize it. And although this book is a companion novel to Trusting Miss Trentham it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book will appeal to readers who love male-male romances, Regency romances, or both. Fans of KJ Charles, Joanna Chambers, and Cat Sebastian should particularly enjoy it..

Lord Octavius Pryor leads a carefree life, until the night he visits Vauxhall Gardens in the guise of a woman. At Vauxhall, Octavius discovers that being a female is very different from being a man. Annoyingly different, unpleasantly different—and when he encounters the lecherous Baron Rumpole, dangerously different. Determined to teach the baron a lesson, Octavius infiltrates Rumpole's household, where he meets the woman of his dreams: Miss Toogood, governess to the baron's daughters. Suddenly Octavius has three pressing tasks. 1) To teach the baron to keep his yardstick in his breeches. 2) To keep Miss Toogood safe. 3) To convince her to marry him. Length: Full-length novel of 88,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with mild love scenes A word of caution: This novel is a bodice ripper, and I mean that quite literally.

The Spinster’s Secret - Emily Larkin Preview:

“Straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, despaired, and felt one with a character to this extent.” ~ Punya Reviews Matilda Chapple is penniless, orphaned, and dependent on her uncle’s meager charity—but she’s found a way to escape: she’ll write her way to financial freedom. When Mattie pens a series of titillating short stories, she starts earning money . . . and notoriety. Her secret is safe—until Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, agrees to uncover the anonymous author's identity. Can Mattie conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the virginal spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person? A Regency romance with a battle-scarred hero, an enterprising heroine, a gothic backdrop, and some of the worst food in England. **The Spinster's Secret is the second book in the Midnight Quill Trio, but may be read as a standalone.** Q & A with the author How would you describe this book? Good question! Um . . . a gothic Regency romance with underlying humor? By gothic, I mean that the setting is gothic: an isolated and gloomy manor with dark, drafty corridors and a miserly uncle. There are nightly readings of ‘improving texts’ and some truly awful food! Your hero and heroine are a little unusual. Tell us a bit about them. The heroine, Mattie, is six foot tall—which is a little taller than your average heroine! Edward, the hero, is even taller, and badly scarred from injuries he received at Waterloo. And when I say badly scarred, I mean really badly scarred. Did you do a lot of research for this book? I read two ‘titillating’ novels of the era, Fanny Hill and The Lustful Turk, which were quite ludicrous. The stories Mattie writes are just as silly! How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book would appeal to readers who like the historical backdrop and understated humor of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, and the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan..

The Fey Quartet - Emily Larkin Preview:

One widow ~ three daughters ~ four heroes ~ and some very dangerous Faeries. *The Fey Quartet romance novella collection is the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series.* MAYTHORN’S WISH For years the widowed Maythorn Miller has yearned for a man she can never have: the village blacksmith, Ren. But Maythorn lives near the border with Faerie, a place where unexpected things can happen... HAZEL’S PROMISE Hazel Miller is betrothed to a man who went off to earn his fortune—and never returned. Dressed as a boy, she sets out to find him, but the roads of Medieval England are fraught with peril. When a ragged stranger risks his life to protect her, how can she refuse his company? IVY’S CHOICE Ivy Miller is lame, but in a few days she’ll receive a Faerie wish. She could wish herself able to walk freely again...if her beloved sister didn’t need saving. But Ivy’s sister isn’t the only person in desperate need of rescue. A man trapped in the shape of a deer emerges from the forest. Can Ivy break the agonizing spell that binds him? Ivy has only one Faerie wish—but many choices. LARKSPUR’S QUEST Larkspur Miller is determined to earn a Faerie wish for her sister. She knows it won’t be easy—and that it will require a man. She’s chosen her man: Cadoc Ironfist, liegeman to the Lord Warder of Dapple Vale. But Cadoc is reluctant, and the task is far more dangerous than Larkspur realized... “Her haunting prose reads like Hans Christian Andersen for twenty-first century adults.” ~ Mindy Klasky, USA TODAY bestselling author “A storyteller to watch!” ~ Nalini Singh, NYT bestselling author Q & A with the author How would you describe the Fey Quartet novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are adult fairy tale romances. Each novella has a different feel to it--some are darker, some lighter. Themes include: wishes, secrets, new beginnings, dangerous live Faeries, dangerous dead Faeries, disguises, shapeshifting, telepathy, treachery, loyalty – and falling in love. Who would like this quartet of novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are romances with strong heroines, a medieval backdrop, and a dash of magic. They will appeal to romance readers, especially those who enjoy medieval romances or fairy tale romances. Readers who like historical fantasy and fantasy with strong romantic elements would also enjoy the novellas. How would you describe your writing? I’ve had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Georgette Heyer, all of which are massive compliments. An editor once said my writing reminded her of Lois McMaster Bujold, but she was rejecting me at the time, so that was more of a bittersweet compliment! (That book did sell once I rewrote it; it’s one of my Emily Gee fantasy novels.) What order should I read the Fey Quartet novellas in? Each novella can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them in the following order for the best reading experience: Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest The Fey Quartet novellas are the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series. The first six titles in that series are: Unmasking Miss Appleby Resisting Miss Merryweather Trusting Miss Trentham Claiming Mister Kemp Ruining Miss Wrotham Discovering Miss Dalrymple Happy reading!.

Primrose and the Dreadful Duke - Emily Larkin Preview:

*A double award-winning historical romance* An irrepressible duke, a bookish spinster, a devious murderer ... Regency house parties have never been so hazardous! Oliver Dasenby is the most infuriating man Primrose Garland has ever known. He may be her brother's best friend, but he has an atrocious sense of humor. Eight years in the cavalry hasn't taught him solemnity, nor has the unexpected inheritance of a dukedom. But when Oliver inherited his dukedom, it appears that he also inherited a murderer. Oliver might be dreadfully annoying, but Primrose doesn't want him dead. She's going to make certain he survives his inheritance—and the only way to do that is to help him catch the murderer! "I read straight through the night. I kept telling myself that I needed to put it down and get some sleep, but it was so interesting and exciting that I just had to see what happened next. Finally, at 7 am, I read the last word and thought 'Wow, just wow.'" ~ Barbara @ NetGalley Length: Full-length novel of 85,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with steamy love scenes *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Long Romance of the Year Award* *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Best Overall Romance of the Year Award* "I read it in one sitting. I also rolled my eyes and laughed until I snorted in an unladylike manner." ~ Judith @ Goodreads Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with passion, danger, adventure, humor, romance?and a dash of magic. The stories are emotional, but not sweet. There's sex, and my heroes do swear at times! Hang on. Did you say magic? I did. But don't worry—the books are first and foremost historical romances. Only a few characters have magic, and it's a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I've thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She's why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you've not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I've also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop and humor of Georgette Heyer, the sensual 'noir' feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!.

The Death of Grass - John Christopher Preview:

A thought experiment in future-shock survivalism' Robert MacFarlane 'Gripping ... of all science fiction's apocalypses, this is one of the most haunting' Financial Times WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ROBERT MACFARLANE A post-apocalyptic vision of the world pushed to the brink by famine, John Christopher's science fiction masterpiece The Death of Grass includes an introduction by Robert MacFarlane in Penguin Modern Classics. At first the virus wiping out grass and crops is of little concern to John Custance. It has decimated Asia, causing mass starvation and riots, but Europe is safe and a counter-virus is expected any day. Except, it turns out, the governments have been lying to their people. When the deadly disease hits Britain, society starts to descend into barbarism. As John and his family try to make it across country to the safety of his brother's farm in a hidden valley, their humanity is tested to its very limits. A chilling psychological thriller and one of the greatest post-apocalyptic novels ever written, The Death of Grass shows people struggling to hold on to their identities as the familiar world disintegrates - and the terrible price they must pay for surviving. John Christopher (1922-2012) was the pen name of Samuel Youd, a prolific writer of science fiction. His novels were popular during the 1950s and 1960s, most notably The Death Of Grass (1956), The World in Winter (1962), and Wrinkle in the Skin (1965), all works depicting ordinary people struggling in the midst of apocalyptic catastrophes. In 1966 he started writing science-fiction for adolescents; The Tripods trilogy, the Prince in Waiting trilogy (also known as the Sword of the Spirits trilogy) and The Lotus Caves are still widely read today. Ifyou enjoyed The Death of Grass, you might like John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids, also available in Penguin Modern Classics..

Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue - Francis Grose Preview:

Throughout history, most dictionaries have served the purpose of preserving the purity of the language, usually preferring the erudite vocabulary of the affluent upper classes to the salty, constantly evolving slang of their working-class counterparts. That began to change in the early modern period, when several innovative lexicographers began publishing collections of slang terms used by particular subcultures, such as criminals. According to scholars, Francis Grose's Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue is one of the most important and complete of these early slang dictionaries. Spend some time with this fascinating volume to learn the slang definitions of words and phrases like "poisoned" (pregnant), "shooting the cat" (vomiting after excess alcohol consumption), and "snoozing ken" (a brothel)..
