Amelia and the Viscount (Bluestocking Brides Book 1)

by Samantha Holt

“No eligible bachelor wants to marry a bluestockingâ?¦especially not those frightful Chadwick girls.” – Lady Jersey, Almacks Patroness.

Amelia’s writing was often prone to getting her into trouble. Hence why she eventually took on a penname. But it seems, once again, her unthinking need to spill out everything onto paper will land her in hot water.

After her sisters persuade her the only way to get over her love for Lord Nicholas Wentworth is to write about him, Amelia devotes hours and hours of ink to the subject. However, she never expects for Nicholas to end up in possession of this information. How could she admit her affection for him when she knows full well he is still in love with her now married sister?

To save herself embarrassmentâ??and more importantly to keep her penname hiddenâ??Amelia must find a way to intercept these letters, and if she cannot, she must persuade Nicholas it was all some awful jest and that she is certainly not A. Hardwickâ??purveyor of stories so scandalous that it would mean utter ruination for all the Chadwick girls should the truth come out.

The Cheats

by Marjorie Bowen

A romantic fantasy…

The author of this tale of intrigue may justly claim to be the novelist of the “costume” period par excellence. It would certainly be difficult to find a book fuller of the subtlety of the Jacobean Jesuit, of plot and counterplot, court scandal, and subterranean politics.

Her atmosphere is to a degree perfect, that the reader, absorbed in the period, is tempted to forget the modern novelist behind, with her penetrating interest in the hidden character of the players, and to read for the story alone…

Praise for Marjorie Bowen…

â??Miss Bowen’s work is of the exceptional class’ – The Scotsman

Marjorie Bowen often wrote under the pseudonym Margaret Gabrielle Vere Campbell Long, and was one of Britain’s most prolific authors of the twentieth century. Between 1906 and her death in 1952, Bowen wrote over 150 books, garnering much acclaim for her popular histories and historical and Gothic romances. Alongside masterful descriptions and concise, efficient prose, she deftly rendered larger-than-life subjects in the minds of her readers. Her other titles include The Sword Decided, Mary Queen of Scots, The Queen’s Caprice, The Governor of England, Mistress Nell Gwynn and Dickon.
