Regency Friday: Nicola Cornick’s Claimed by the Laird

Friday, August 22nd, 2014 | Regency Fridays | No Comments


My Review:

Nicola Cornick always works wonders for me. No matter how deep I am in my own work, or how much life distracts me with minutia, Nicola’s fabulous storytelling always paints a new world for me. CLAIMED BY THE LAIRD is no exception. Filled with smuggling, intrigue, hidden caves, secret identities, and a hot man, this book kept me turning the pages far into the night. And true love is in there, too. Nicola is a master of true love…she reminds me why I read romance in the first place, and why I write it. I can’t recommend this one highly enough.


Claimed by the Laird by Nicola Cornick


He will expose her as the criminal he seeks, or seduce her as the woman he desires…

An old maid—that’s all Lady Christina McMorlan, daughter to the Duke of Forres, is to society now that she’s past thirty. She hosts her father’s parties and cares for her siblings, knowing she’ll never have her own home and family. She has no time to pine, however. By night, she’s The Lady, head of a notorious whiskey-smuggling gang that supports her impoverished clan. They’re always one step ahead of the revenue man—until Lucas Black shows up.

Rejecting his title and the proper society that disparaged his mother, Lucas earns his living running a successful gambling house. He’s also a spy, charged with bringing down the Forres Gang. He thinks The Lady’s just a bored society spinster. She thinks he’s a lost child playing at rebellion. And when the truth comes out, it’s not just their love on the line….

As I work on my character-talk in the second book of the Terror of the Ton series, I reflect on this quote. I need to mind what I say to myself as much as what I say to and with my characters. Writing is building a world, but so is living.

Enticing Miss Eugenie Villaret (The Marriage Game)

Ella Quinn has a new book out, and needless to say, I want it! More Regency fun from the fabulous author…what more could I want from my weekend?

Description of the Book:

Ella Quinn’s intriguing and irresistible bachelors are masters in the game of seduction. But nothing has the power to change a single man’s mind like a captivating woman…

William, Viscount Wivenly, plans to remain the most eligible of bachelors. He refuses to surrender to the schemes of husband-hunting ladies and matchmaking mamas. Fleeing the pressure of the ton, he’s bent on finding refuge in the West Indies. What he finds instead is a fascinating stranger, a woman so unlike those of his society that he can’t resist such a beguiling distraction…

Determined to let nothing complicate her mission to protect her family’s livelihood while covertly rescuing orphaned slave children, Miss Eugénie Villaret does her best to evade suitors. But when dashing William lures her down a path of forbidden adventure and delicious danger, she may be convinced that business can indeed be mixed with pleasure—and persuaded to add passion to her priorities…
