Read full description of the books:
I was very pleased with the first book in this series, so I quickly collected the second. It was all I expected it to be. Griffin, the older brother of these three wonderful females, had been thrilled when his oldest sister found love, and married.We see Alexandria in short snippets in this book. His attention turns to Juliana, and her first season in London. She is beyond excited, and thrilled when her aunt Frances agrees to sponsor her. This book reminds me of Emma, by Jane Austen, because she constantly tries to arrange people to meet and fall in love. She also has a giving heart, and helps along a neighbor's daughter, a founding home, maiden aunts, a clinic for the poor, and her brother. The book becomes very funny at times, as she struggles to keep her efforts in order. There a quite a few twists, and turns, and past affairs, with children revealed. I loved her heart, and stamina, and good intentions, and of course her wonderful sweets, especially the one that was supposed to bring romantic suggestions to the eater. That part was so funny. The story also brings front and center how little say, one held as a female to a dominant, and demanding parent. I was thrilled by Lord James, and his need to give back to society, and their over looked poor. His fresh ideas concerning, cleaning hands, and not using leeches, and purging was very controversial at the time. I also thought him paying to provide small pox vaccine free to his clinic, and administer them to the forgotten lower class made him even more of a leading man, who deserved Juliana. Their were many mistakes, and false starts, and,stops, but they added fun to the story. I loved his aunt's that suffered more from boredom, than true illness. I also liked that Julianna was able to bring a few older ladies,, over forty back to the marriage, and romance Mart. She had a fun, helpful, and loving spirit, with a keenly intelligence. I am looking forward to book three because this sister has no desire for a long term relationship , before her art. Then there is still Griffen, and Rachael, who seem to care, but have little time for each other. Clean romance, and a great writing duo.

Read information about the authorI decided to become a writer in the third grade (or, as my Canadian friends call it, grade three), after winning a "Why My Mother is the Greatest" essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper. Seeing my words in print was a thrill! But everyone told me it's too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book. A mistake? Maybe...but my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, "Write what you know." And I learned a good lesson: Don't let other people tell you what you can or can't do!
I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the 17th and 19th centuries (Restoration and Regency periods). I've been oh-so-lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, making this second career a real dream come true. I live in Southern California with my husband, our three young adult children, and one constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest!
