Raven rambles on Regency

So…well fancy that. I’m today’s Dirty Birdie, and I’ve had a shower.

Sadly I don’t look that good, but I am as clean. Not one iota of muck on me.

Hmm, will that make things difficult?

I hope not.

After all, I have one sort of saucy Regency romance on early download now. That means you can get it from the publisher’s website.

I’m talking about my first ever Regency with Totally Bound, The Earl and the Courtesan.

I’m in love with this story, and yeah in love with TB for taking a risk on Regency and me.

I have no idea if it works, but oh boy I hope so. Apart from anything else, The Earl and The Courtesan is the first book in a new Regency series. Daring Ladies.

A club for unconventional females?

Never! The ton would be scandalized. However, that didn’t matter to the members. They weren’t ton material.

As for scandal? It was their middle name.

Of course it won’t be easy, nothing important ever is, and the results could be catastrophic.

However, for Theresa, Celine, Penelope and Maria—the courtesan, the dancer, the spinster and the milliner, it’s worth the risk.

After all, why settle for boring, mundane and downtrodden when you could have excitement, invigoration, and even though you didn’t know it, the man of your dreams.

This therefore is Theresa’s dilemma.

However…

Once a courtesan, not always a courtesan

Time to move on.

Who better to do it with than a rake?

 

Theresa Kyle, ex-courtesan, will not kowtow to any man in marriage, let alone an odious ex-pupil. When the man rejects her refusal of his proposal, she reluctantly agrees to seek help.

Jamie, the Earl of Weston, is in a fix of his own. The marriage mart is not for him, let alone a compulsory wedding due to the machinations of his mother.

A mutual friend seems to have the perfect solution, The earl and the courtesan—what better way to foil those who want to see them married against their wills?

Alas, the best-laid plans go awry, for neither had expected to fall in love. However, as far as Jamie is concerned, being a member of the aristocracy comes in handy when you need to bend the rules to your will. Convincing Theresa, however, may well be harder than winning over the ton.

 

The Earl and the Courtesan is on general release on June 13th,

And on that note, I’m back to Regency land and research. With coffee

Love Raven xx
