My children returned from Camp Grandma this week, bringing my mail that had been forwarded from Hawaii. The mail included RWA's monthly magazine, ROMANCE WRITERS REPORT. It featured an article about historical romance, asking the question if Romanceland is flooded with Regency Romance? I loves Regency Romance - there are still plenty of dukes, ladies, and country parties to explore!
Anya Wylde is celebrating her newest Madcap Regency Romance, SEEKING PHILBERT WOODBEAD, Book 2 of the The Fairweather Sisters - specially priced on Amazon at this link:
Miss Celine Fairweather’s life was bobbing along like a boat on a tranquil stream when all of a sudden a summons from her beloved sister Penelope Radclyff, the Duchess of Blackthorne, changed it all.
Celine hurtles off to the London to help the duchess run the Blackthorne Mansion and to discover the whereabouts of her lost love Philbert Woodbead.
Celine manages to keep things deathly dull and under control for a whole week until she enlists the help of the handsome Lord Elmer—a mischievous rogue, an ex-pirate, and an incorrigible flirt who is wanted dead by all of England’s husbands with attractive wives.
They scurry from one giddy escapade to another seeking Philbert in musty inns and dusty streets, and through it all Celine tries to keep her bonnet straight, her gloves spotless and her heart in tune with her head.
Life has suddenly turned exciting, and love has well and truly bitten her rosy buttocks. Now the only question is … who has done the biting?
I look forward to reading SEEKING PHILBERT WOODBEAD as soon as school resumes next week. I am giving away an ecopy of SEEKING PHILBERT WOODBEAD to one randomly selected commenter. To enter the giveaway,
1. Leave a comment about characters' names from historical romances - do you have any unusual (but historical) names in your family tree?
My household goods arrived this week ... so I pulled out my husband's family tree (in a lovely frame from my in laws). Both his mother and father have roots from England ... but its a paternal great-great-grandmother from Germany whose name caught my eye - Ernstina Dorothea.
2. This giveaway is open to all readers.
3. Comments are open through Saturday, August 31, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, September 1.
