Interview with Regina Scott
When not writing, what hobbies do you enjoy?
I love trying a new recipe or starting a new sewing project. I haven’t had a lot of time to do either the last year with family needs, but I’m hoping for more free time in 2014.

Do you laugh and cry while writing your books?
Yes! And I think that’s a good sign. I hope that if a scene makes me laugh or cry, my readers will do the same.

Are you sad to end a series and leave the characters behind?
Sometimes. Some series have run their course. I know the characters are settled and happy, and a new series is beckoning. But sometimes it’s hard to leave them behind, particularly if there’s a secondary character who didn’t quite meet his match. That was the case with the Everard Legacy series. I’d like to go back and marry off Jamie, the boy who was the friend of the Everard family and thought he was in love with Samantha Everard. Maybe someday! And I’ve had several readers comment that they’d like to see a story for Peter Quimby, the valet from The Wife Campaign, who attempted to engineer his master’s love life.

Do you read the same types of books you write?
Yes, but not when I’m writing them. I adore traditional Regency romances. I’m so glad to see more authors attempting them. Unfortunately, I can’t read Regency-set romances while I’m writing them, as characters have a bad tendency to bleed over from one to the other. So, I read nonfiction while I’m writing fiction, and fiction while I’m researching and doing more nonfiction tasks in preparation for writing.

What is your go-to snack?

Popcorn, with lots of margarine and salt. I have a hot-air popper, and I grab microwave versions for a quick fix. My husband and I try to have one movie waiting each weekend to watch together, two if we’re lucky, and I make us big bowls of popcorn to munch on while we snuggle on the couch. Bliss!

Frontier Bachelors Series
Book 1: The Bride Ship
Widow Allegra Howard needed to get away and save her child from a rigid life of Boston society. She found her answer in Asa Mercer’s expeditions, women were needed in Seattle. She went to board the ship that would bring her to a life of independence. Away from the Howard’s.

Clayton Howard had made a choice six years ago to leave society and go west. Allegra Banks refused his offer of marriage and travel and married his brother a month after he left. Word of his brother’s death sent him back to the family that disowned him, to find out how Allegra was doing. The woman he found boarding the ship was not the one he left behind, and all he could do when she refused to return to Boston..was to go with her to Seattle.

I loved this story and cannot wait for the next book in the series. The author takes the reader on a three and a half month journey. Clay and Allie not only have the perils of the sea, but also struggles of the heart. He wants to protect Allie and Gillian while she wants to be independent. Allie believed God had sent her to a life of independence in Seattle, could it be He had a different course planned?
Book 2: Would Be Wilderness Wife
Andrew “Drew” Wallin is the man of the house since his dad died ten years ago. He takes his responsibility very serious, perhaps too serious. When his ma falls ill they need to get a doctor out to their lands. When the doctor couldn't come, his little brother Levi came up with his own plan. Kidnap the nurse.

Catherine Stanway has no plans of marrying. She was given the gift to be a nurse and that is what she would do. Help nurse people back to health the best she could, and never let anyone in her heart. Heal them and get them out the door. Ending up in the household of Wallin's, her heart had the nerve to start opening up once again.

I just loved this story, as I did the first. But this one, all these wonderful brothers came to life. Simon, James, John, naughty Levi and their sister, Beth. And Drew. Catherine was one of three friends that came on the ship with the Mercer Belle's. The story begins with The Bride Ship. Great stories. Looking forward to the third book that will be Maddie's story.

Book 3: Frontier Engagement
James Wallin, brother to Drew Wallin from the previous book, Would be Wilderness Wife, is the carefree joker of the family. Or is he? The new schoolteacher seems to have the ability to bring the best out of James. Bring out the real man under the jokes. Too bad he allows the past to rule him because he has ruled out marriage. Ever.

Alexandrina Fosgrave's life had been a lie. And everyone around her seemed to use smooth words to convince her and others to do as they wanted. Her parents, Asa Mercer, suitors, and now the smooth tongued James Wallin. Well, she had smartened up and it would take more than sweet talk to win her over.

The Wallin's father had wanted to build a community, a town at Wallin Landing. The boys are determined to honor their deceased father by making those dreams come true. They had their nurse, now James needed to convince the schoolteacher to stay. I can't wait for more stories in this series.

A group of women had come to Seattle under the impression it was waiting for them. That there were already families, schools, hospitals...civilization. They found out they had listened to a silver tongued devil with his own profit in mind. Their stories start with The Bride Ship. I highly recommend reading the first two books.

Book 4: Instant Frontier Family
Amazon
Maddie O'Rourke is determined to make her own way in life. She had traveled to Seattle with Mercer, but she was not going to be a bride. That didn't mean she wouldn't smile and perhaps flirt a bit to help sell her baked goods to the men in Seattle. Especially if it meant more money to help raise her half sister and brother. 

Michael Haggerty knew he was not what the fiery redhead expected when he delivered her siblings to her. She also didn't know that it most likely had saved his life by doing so. New York was no longer safe for him. 

Maddie was determined not to fall for any man, including the helpful Irishman who she seemed to acquire with her siblings. Michael was determined to make sure the youngsters were safe with their sister and repay Maddie for his traveling expenses. Neither expected the danger around them...from others...and from their own hearts.

Book 5: A Convenient Christmas Wedding
Nora Underhill came to Seattle with the Mercer Brides. She wanted to get away from her brother and sister-in-law. They treated her as a maid and she saw the move West as her freedom. When she learns her brother is also moving to Seattle, she gathers all the courage she has to ask a man to marry her.

Simon Wallin is the cynic of the family. He sees every angle something could go wrong. He is the loner of the family, too. When Nora asks if he'll marry her and protect her from her brother—his first thought is no. When she mentions the hundred and sixty acres of land she can bring to the marriage—he knows his family needs it. Sacrifice for family. And it's not like it's a real marriage.

This story returns the reader to Wallin Landings. The Wallin family is full of unique characters. The second and third books; Would be Wilderness Wife and Frontier Engagement contain two of the brothers stories. I hope the rest of the siblings get their own books one day as the author makes this family so real and personable.

Book 6: Mail-Order Marriage Promise
John Wallin is content helping others. He's decided that marriage isn't for him. He's the guy that the girls consider a friend—not husband material. When his sister, Beth, introduces him to Dottie, he's shocked to find out that Beth had chose her to be his bride. Now John needs to find Dottie a job or a husband—not him—so he can go back to his life. Alone.

Dorothy “Dottie” Tyrrell is in trouble. She's come all the way from Ohio just to find out the too-wonderful-to-be-true man that Beth had been writing her about, doesn't want her. She can't go back to Ohio, there's nothing but heartache back there. And with a young son to take care of, a job isn't easy to come by.

I loved this story. It's some years later at Wallin Landing. A few things have changed since the previous Wallin stories and I enjoyed seeing them all again. Their families have grown and there are more buildings. Some things have stayed the same, such as; James still likes to dress well. Looking forward to Beth and Levi's stories.

Book Seven: His Frontier Christmas Family
Levi Wallin has regrets. He left Wallin Landing with his friend, Scout, about seven years ago. They were going to strike it rich in the gold rush. Levi had thought he'd be respected more when he came home wealthy. Instead, he lost respect for himself. Helping the Murphy's should help in his redemption...he hopes.

Callie Murphy hates the gold fields and gold fever. She's lost so much because of it. Now, she's raising her twin brothers and her niece. On her own. And she doesn't need any preacher or his perfect family to help her.

When Levi comes to offer the Murphy's his guardianship...he's getting more than he could have ever imagined. Another fantastic adventure with the Wallins and Wallin Landing.

The Spy Matchmaker Series Book One
Book 1: The Husband Mission
Katherine Collins is a managing woman. Living with their uncle who hasn't been the same since he was injured in the war, Katherine has become the mistress of the house. Her mission right now is to get her stepsister, Constance, married off. And yes, she has it all planned out to a T.

Alexander Wescott, Viscount Borin is beginning to find his life boring. He wants to work for the War Office, but they have refused him. Suddenly, he finds himself with more excitement than he needs when he meets the Collins' family.

Sometimes you don't have to be a spy to find yourself in espionage as these characters find out. The War Office is trying to find those who are giving secrets to the French and Katherine is working just as hard to find her stepsister that husband. A fun-filled romance with a touch of intrigue for this London Season.
Book 2: The June Bride Conspiracy
Joanna Lindby is getting married in June. A handsome man to be sure, but she's fallen in love with her future husband and doesn't feel he reciprocates her feelings.

Allister Fenwick, Baron Trevithan is retiring from the Intelligence Corps. He's ready to get married and settle down. Until his soon-to-be wife starts receiving threats. He can't stop working until he finds out who is threatening Joanna.

Another series full of intrigue, romance, and a touch of humor. Characters that come to life. I'm looking forward to more of their stories.
Book 3: The Heiress Objective
Kevin Whattling is broke. Really broke. But he has a plan. He's going to marry an heiress and he's already chosen one. He just has to be his handsome, charming self and she'll be sure to agree.

Eugennia “Jenny” Welch is a bluestocking. And a spinster. Men don't choose women to marry who like to think. Who are intelligent. So why has her prince charming suddenly come to sweep her away?

No perfect plan gets by without a few wrenches thrown in. Even with the help of Kevin's friends: Giles and Nigel, the wrench has been thrown and he has to work hard at getting Eugennia to agree to marriage.
********************
The Marvelous Munroes Series 
Book 1: My True Love Gave to Me
Genevieve Munroe wants her mother and sister to have a happy Christmas before she tells them the bad news. Her father's death six months ago is about to have her family grieving for more than his loss. Until then, they are back in at Wenwood Abbey for a nice, quiet, happy Christmas. Or not.

Squire Alan Pentercast has made a wager with Gen. Forget the long feud between their two families. He believes he can win a wager and win her hand. Outside forces are going to make that much harder than he thinks.

A fun holiday story. Some unique traditions from the past and very interesting characters. And an added suspense as well. I'm looking forward to the next story with Allison Munroe, Gen's younger sister.
Book 2: Catch of the Season
Allison Munroe has wanted a London Season since she was fifteen. And now it was finally here. She could finally gain the respect of being considered grown and able to make her own decisions. Or so she thought. She was also surprised to find she missed her childhood friend from the country.

Geoffrey Pentercast discovered that he cared for Allison, but feared he might be too late. She was in London for her Season and her choices of men would be so much more than he could offer—a second son of a country squire wasn't much of a match against say...a marquis.

The reader can meet both Allison and Geoffrey in the first story; My True Love Gave to Me. The Pentercasts and Munroes were neighbors in the country...and enemies. Fun, fast-moving stories. Looking forward to more in this really enjoyable series.
Book 3: The Marquis' Kiss
Thomas, Marquis DeGuis is having a tough time finding a wife. He fears a weak heart will take him as it did his father and grandfather, so he has to get his nursery started to continue the line. For a man being called the catch of the Season—he's having trouble being caught.

Margaret Munroe is from the poor side of the Munroe family. Now that her two cousins have married mere men from the country, her stepmother is that more intent on seeing Margaret well matched. The problem is that she is an Original and the ton doesn't consider that a good thing.

I loved both Thomas and Margaret. In the previous book; Catch of the Season, the reader gets a glimpse of Thomas and Margaret. All these stories have such great characters that it's easy to connect to them. Real page turners from beginning to end. This series precedes The Uncommon Courtship Series, where several of Margaret's male friends have their stories told.
Book 4: Sweeter Than Candy
Daniel Lewiston was lonely. While visiting his neighbor and friend, Jonathan, he enjoyed entertaining the three nephews his friend recently found out about. His sister's husband had passed away and left them in a bad way, so they had to move in.

Cynthia Jacobs kept hoping that her husband had left something in his belongings for them, something to help them financially. But there was nothing. Her boys seemed to smile and enjoy themselves back at her childhood home— only it wasn't the estate that brought them joy and laughter. It was Daniel.

I loved these characters. The boys’ personalities were so visible and I couldn't help but fall in love with Daniel. He was an oversized child full of life and yet...an incredible adult as well. It's not a long story, but it's packed full.
********************
Uncommon Courtships
Book 1: The Unflappable Miss Fairchild
Miss Anne Fairchild seems to smile and handle any situation life hands her. Living with her two aunts, one who is quite crotchety, she still maintains being happy. Her aunts want her to marry well. She wants to marry for love.

Chas Prestwick is a second son. He has lived his life selfishly...only caring about his own pleasure. And he loves his adventures. The night he meets Anne, he's not sure if she's an innocent or a doxy, he just knows that whatever she is...he wants to know her better.

Even though she's beautiful, Anne seems to be overlooked by the ton. Being associated with a man like Chas will not increase her chances of that good marriage Aunt Agatha wants for her. A fast moving and humorous story.
Book 2: The Incomparable Miss Compton
Sarah Compton lost more than her parents when they died...she lost her future. Between taking care of her sickly cousin and aunt...she became a spinster. And her cousin became self-absorbed along the way. This Season was showing her how selfish the younger girl was. But hopefully she'd find a husband. And then Sarah could move on to being a teacher. And a spinster.

Malcolm, Viscount Breckonridge, had the perfect woman in mind to be his wife. Since it seemed he needed a wife for the required heir he'd need. The woman would be a business partner of sorts. Nothing emotional. His true wife was Parliament, after all. What was he to do when the perfect woman didn't see things his way? Ha! Everyone always seen things Malcolm's way—eventually.

The characters come to life and brought out this reader's emotions. Wanting to give the cousin a good set down. Malcolm a good shaking. And Sarah a high-five for sticking to her guns. Loved this story and this series so far. The first book is The Unflappable Miss Fairchild. The third book in this series is; The Irredeemable Miss Renfield.
  Book 3: The Irredeemable Miss Renfield
Miss Cleopatra “Cleo” Renfield just wants her old life back, before her parents died. She would be happy with the simple life of living in the country; riding, hunting, and fishing. And she had come up with what she thought was the perfect plan to get those things. Her godmother wanted her to marry Leslie, Cleo's childhood friend. Instead she would get him to help her get her dream of being single in the country.

Leslie Petersborough, now Lord Hastings, Marquis of Hastings wasn't ready to step into his father's shoes. Even if a year had passed since his father died. His godmother wanted to choose his wife. He didn't want a wife. He enjoyed having fun though—and the young girl he used to know in the country was taking him on a big adventure in London.

I loved this story and I'm enjoying this series. Leslie is the good friend of Chas from book one; The Unflappable Miss Fairchild. This story also starts out at the same scene, from a different angle, as book two; The Incomparable Miss Compton. Looking forward to more stories from the characters that have been introduced in these first three stories.
Book 4: The Unwilling Miss Watkin
Miss Eloise Watkin was a changed young woman this past year. Thanks to her friend Cleo and her husband, Les. She no longer tried to gain love by her actions. Life was going along well, perhaps she'd even have an offer soon. She never expected a ghost to show up from her past and change everything.

Lord Jareth Darby had been a rogue. Well, he was still struggling to overcome his appreciation for women, but he'd promised his brother to reform. He'd hit bottom and to have a place to live and earn money—his brother required him to ask forgiveness from the women he'd hurt. Only one was left on the list and his Darby pride dreaded facing her. Eloise Watkin.

Confusion from five years earlier has followed these two characters and finally brought them together for closure. Jareth needed forgiveness, but had no idea the mess he'd left Eloise to face alone. Eloise still carries her hurt and doesn't trust Jarith. Another fantastic, page-turning story in this series.

********************
Lady Emily Capers Series
Book One: Secrets and Sensibilities
Hannah Alexander is looking forward to quitting her job at Barnsley's School for Young Ladies, as her true desire is to paint. She is close to having the funds to move to London and do so. Very close. That is until she is sent to chaperone four young women and everything changes.

David Tenant, the new Earl of Brentfield knows little about the aristocracy or about being an earl. He's an American who enjoyed his leather craft business. One thing he is learning quickly about is that aristocratic women are underhanded. And that maybe he should have heeded his friends advice that someone wanted to kill him.

This starts the series of mystery, intrigue and romance that continues in the books that follow. The four young women; Emily Southwell, Priscilla Tate, Daphne and Ariadne Courdebas, continue solving more mysteries. I really enjoyed this story. It brings out the emotions for the characters...such as despising one or two of them and keeps the reader guessing who the villain could be.
**Previously published as A Dangerous Dalliance by Zebra Regency Romance
Book Two: Art and Artifice
In the first book; Secrets and Sensibilities, four young women go with their chaperone to Brentfield Manor and end up with a mystery on their hands. Now the girls; Lady Emily Southwell, Priscilla Tate, Daphne and Ariadne Courdebas are back in London for their first Season.

Lady Emily Southwell is the daughter of a duke. It may sound all good and well but there are some negatives as well. Emily finds she is engaged to a man she barely knows and he doesn't want to wait to marry. His Grace, her father, thinks it a perfect match and is unbendable. Emily and her friends don their spy caps once again to find some dirt on her betrothed.

James “Jamie” Cropper is a Bow Street Runner. As such, he knows that he could never court and no less marry a duke's daughter. But he can save her from an unwanted marriage. He suspects her betrothed of no good, but has yet to prove it. Or is it just something personal from his past that wants to find Lord Robert guilty?

Mystery, humor, and romance in one book. I've enjoyed these first two books in this series and look forward to reading the rest of this series.
**Parts of this book previously published as La Petite Four by Penguin Razorbill
Book Three: Ballrooms and Blackmail
Priscilla Tate had everything going for her as far as beautiful hair, eyes, and a perfect body. Her aunt Sylvia had taught her well how to use all of the above to her advantage...and she did. Too bad Aunt Sylvia went crazy and now Priscilla needs to marry for money to help her parents...rather than love for herself. What else can she do but aim her sights on a duke? 

Nathan Kent was elected by relatives to watch over his distant cousin Percy. Now that the man had become a duke, he needed guidance. A lot of guidance. Nathan needed to find the perfect woman for his cousin to marry. One who could keep the truth about the duke to herself and help him as well. Perhaps the fortune hunter would be a good duchess but Nathan didn't want her marrying the duke.

This is a great series. Romance, humor, mystery, and secrets. Priscilla, Emily, Daphne, and Ariadne have come together once again to put their skills together to find the culprit who is blackmailing Priscilla. The ongoing story of Emily and Jamie Cropper continues as well.
Book Four: Eloquence and Espionage
Ariadne Courdebas, youngest daughter of Viscount Rollings meets a mysterious man dressed as a Roman centurion at a masquerade ball and is determined to find him again. Since he had a leather mask covering his face, she just knows he had longish black hair and dark eyes. How hard can he be to find in London?

Jason Sinclair, Lord Hawksbury, had secrets that he needed to keep. When the pretty young woman he met at the ball tries to find him, he has to get her off his trail. He has a dangerous man to find and she will only find herself in danger. Or is it too late already?

I really enjoyed this story. For the whole story and to get to know the characters, here are the first three books in this series; Secrets and Sensibilities, Art and Artifice and Ballrooms and Blackmail. Humor, adventure, and romance in one.
Book 5: Love and Larceny
Daphne Courdebas is the last of her friends without a beau. It's not that men don't like her and pay her visits, just not for the right reasons. They like that she's an Amazon. A girl who can ride as well or better than them. An athlete. The type of girl it's fun to race and hang out with—one of the guys—but not marriage material.

Wynn Fairfax fell for the unique Daphne from the moment she jumped in his phaeton and had him chase after a jewel thief. He's overjoyed when she invites him with her to a house party for another adventure of finding a thief. He's not so thrilled that she considers him a friend. He wants so much more.


I loved this series but Wynn really grabs my heart. After an injury at Eton, he is left with a limp. The heroes with disabilities always get me. The house party is at the Brentfield's, David and Hannah. Their story and the first book where we meet all the characters is Secrets and Sensibilities. Where it all begins.
********************
The Everard Legacy Series
Book 1: The Rogue's Reform
Amazon
Jerome Everard expected to inherit his wayward uncle's estate. Instead, all has gone to a secret daughter. Only by disproving his young cousin's claim can Jerome regain his rightful property. But instead, he finds himself drawn to her lovely governess, Adele Walcott -- a woman who holds the key to all of his uncle's secrets.

Adele's fortune is gone, along with her marriage prospects. Now she is devoted to securing her charge's happiness. When she meets Jerome, she dares to dream of love again. But after learning his true motives, that love comes to a test. Can she forgive his past and reform his heart...to make it hers forever?
Book 2: The Captain's Courtship
 The dashing Captain Richard Everard has faced untold dangers at sea. Steering his young cousin through a London season, however, is a truly formidable prospect. The girl needs a sponsor, like lovely widow Lady Claire Winthrop -- the woman who coldly jilted Richard years ago.

Claire believed herself sensible in marrying a well-to-do viscount rather than a penniless second son. How deeply she regretted it! Now their fortunes are reversed, and Richard's plan will help settle her debts and secure his inheritance. Yet it may yield something even more precious: a chance to be courted by the captain once more. 
Book 3: The Rake's Redemption
London 1805
Lady Imogene Devary should be enjoying her Season rather than wondering why her father is acting strangely and what the handsome young poet has to do with it. What else can she do but to get to know the young man and find out why he’s getting her father’s cold shoulder….since her father don’t seem to be around much these days.

Vaughn Everard must find a way to talk to the the Marquess of Widmore. His loyalty to family drives him to find out about the death of his uncle and only the marquess can answer his questions. Maybe the man is playing hide and seek with him but Vaughn has just been handed a key to getting closer to him when he finds out the bold young woman who asked him to dance at the ball is the daughter of that very man.

This story was full of the unexpected. Not letting you know quite who was up to what and not sure what direction it would go until near the end. Excellent romance with plenty of adventure and intrigue as well. You may want to start with Jerome and Richard Everard’s stories in The Rogue’s Reform and The Captain’s Courtship.

Book 4: The Heiress's Homecoming
Amazon
This story takes place in 1813 in Cumberland, England. William Wentworth never planned on being Earl of Kendrick, he was a second son after all. The murder of his brother and the death of his father left him without a choice. It was time to return and be a father to his son as well. And then the night of his son’s seventeenth birthday party Will laid eyes on the most beautiful woman. A woman his son was besotted with.

Samantha, Lady Everard had many secrets in her life. One was about the murder of Will’s brother. A secret that had to be kept to protect so many people she loved. Her other secret was what would happen if she wasn’t married by her twenty-fifth birthday. Which she wouldn’t be. She knew that love and marriage was something she would never have in her life, no matter the other costs.

This is the fourth and last book in the series and I would suggest reading the previous books; The Rogue’s Reform, The Captain’s Courtship and The Rake’s Redemption to help understand Samantha’s past and her future. This story has the fear of the past holding the characters back from a joyful future. The fear of making the mistakes of those before them and who to trust, as people aren’t always who they seem to be. An exciting story line with characters who come alive. A series worth reading.

The Master Matchmakers Series
Wedding bells will ring when downstairs servants play Cupid for upstairs aristocracy
Book 1: The Courting Campaign
Sir Nicholas Rotherford was determined to find a way to help miners and redeem himself. He feels his daughter Alice is well taken care of, so he can continue with he his research and experiments. Her new nanny seems to have a different opinion then he does and she’s not afraid to let him know what she thinks.

Emma Pyrmont grew up as an orphan and when she did gain foster parents, her happiness was not their concern. Knowing little Alice does have a father, but he’s too busy for her just won’t do. So Emma goes on a mission to get her employer to notice his daughter.

Regina Scott brings the characters to life. From the way Nick just don’t get things in his scientific mind to the emotions Emma carries with her. One character needed a good kick in the back end and to top it off, there’s an adorable little girl and her doll. A really enjoyable historical, looking forward to the series.

Book 2: The Wife Campaign
Whitfield Calder, Earl of Danning enjoys his time at his home by the river. His busy life does not allow him to visit here as often, a place where he can relax and fish. Unfortunately his valet has other plans for this fortnight, a house party. Not just a house party but he's invited three eligible woman and wants Whit to choose a wife!

Ruby Hollingsford cannot believe her father has tricked her into meeting yet another aristocrat. Doesn't he remember her painful past? At least there are two other women to keep the Earl's attention and she's made it plenty clear to him that she does not plan to marry. Unfortunately her heart seems to forget that she's just a jewelers daughter and Whit is an aristocrat.

The hired help are taking things into their own hands in this series. If their masters cannot see the need for a wife, well then they'll just give them the push they need. Once again the author brings in an assortment of characters. Those mother's of the young ladies are definitely the worst to deal with, but a simpering young woman batting her eyelashes can be annoying as well. An enjoyable story with a few twists and turns in the plot to add more excitement on that pathway to love.
Book 3: The Husband Campaign
John, Lord Hascot has only one love in his heart, his horses. He was fooled and his heart broken several years ago and he won't allow it to happen again, ever. And he won't be forced to marry. Or will he?

Lady Amelia Jacoby didn't know love. Her parents had nothing to spare for her as they held themselves in such high regards. She wasn't the son her father wanted, so that left finding the perfect son-in-law to pawn her off on. And even though Lord Hascot may not have a high standing in the ton, his horses do. And one does not fight and win against her father's decisions.

Amelia hoped to marry for love, it was not to be. One slight mishap and she finds herself married to a man who has no love to give. She's a fighter though and goes on a campaign to win her husband. When a gossipy neighbor puts doubts into her mind and unexpected visitors show up, it seems that her marriage may truly be doomed. With prayer and faith in God, these two can only hope that He will bring them into a happy ending.

Be sure to read what the mischievous matchmakers were up to in book one, The Courting Campaign and book two, The Wife Campaign. Wonderful series.

Elizabeth Dumont had lost everything and just wanted to start over. She never expected to see the man who broke her heart. Everyone in this small town thought he was a good man, she knew better. At least she was able to work as a nanny to three adorable triplet boys. If only she could adopt them.

And as the house for orphans gets closer to opening...Brandon needs to find a way to keep Elizabeth in town if she is no longer needed to care for the triplets.

Thomas, the decorous Marquis de Guis, is considered the catch of the season. Only he knows that two of his brides-to-be have cried off when he sealed the bargain with a kiss. Now, bent on marriage but certain he can never conquer a lady's lips, this all-too-proper paragon has chosen a miss he's sure cannot reject him-impoverished, eccentric Margaret Munroe. But the lord will find there's more to learn along the road to love and matrimony than the perfect kiss.

A Hoyden With Nothing To Hide

They don't call her an Original for nothing. Lovely, lively Margaret flouts convention by racing her horses and working ceaselessly to help fallen women. She cannot believe the rich and reserved Thomas-whose sea blue eyes dizzy her with desire-truly cares for her. Yet he seems quite besotted...except for a steadfast refusal to kiss her.

Utterly disinterested in romance, heiress Harriet Woodford marries her handsome neighbor out of mutual convenience-but neither gambles on losing their hearts in Elena Greene's "The Wedding Wager." Feisty bluestocking Phillipa Westhaven in Alice Holden's "A Picture Perfect Romance" sallies forth amid the ton for a husband -- only to find love in a most unexpected place. And in Regina Scott's "The June Bride Conspiracy," deceptively demure Joanna Lindby sets out to prove to her master-spy fiance that love can be the greatest adventure of all. 

Come revel in that unforgettable day when spirited ladies and determined gentlemen whisper vows and exchange joyous kisses that promise forever-and-always...

  1. I posted my comment and it disappeared. So I am doing it again. I have never read anything of Regina Scott before. The Matchmaker series sounds really interesting. So does Mistletoe Kittens, A Blushing Bride, My True Love Gave to Me and How to Marry a Duke.

  2. I haven't read Regina yet which is amazing considering how many books she has written. I think I would read The Wife Campaign (sounds fun) or The Irresistible Earl (because I love that cover) :)

    I loved the Everard Series and can't wait to start the Master Matchmaking Series. I have the first two books on my TBR pile and hope to get to them soon. I love the regency time period and see that there are some older books I need to track down.

  5. I can't believe that I am finding so many new authors I haven't read yet and they all have several books that sound really interesting. This is like finding a gold mine. I am so excited to check out all of these new authors.

  6. I have not read any of your books, but they all look delightful! I have added most of them to my wish list. The only reason they are not ALL on the list is some are not available on ebooks, so I will have to haunt the library systems I have cards to. Thanks for stopping by Judy's party.
