New Release--And Contest!


So, yesterday I got a big box full of new author copies of my September release! Improper Ladies is the latest two-in-one release of a couple of my old Signet Regencies. (The Golden Feather, a Bookseller's Best Award winner, and The Rules of Love, a RITA nominee!)

I'm giving away a signed copy this week. Just let me know in the comments what your favorite Regency story is (can be a trad, a historical, paranormal, classic, whatever you like) and I will randomly select a winner this weekend....

This is a true? regency story - Beau Brummell, when out of favour with the Prince Regent, reputedly asked someone standing by the Prince 'Who's your fat friend?'. It must have been so astisfying for about two minutes, while the white-heat of anger shot through his brain - but don't you think he'd eventually have thought 'Whoops...'
If you want a favourite fictional regency (even though I think she always said they weren't - I love Heyer 'The Tollfgate').

Favorite regency romances are the Georgette Heyer novels, esp. The Grand Sophy and These Old Shades. Recently I've started a series of very good historical mysteries - the Sebastian St. Cyr series by C. S. Harris - very good. Thanks for this giveaway, it will be a 'new author' novel for me.

I have to agree about the G. Heyer novels. I would also add Johanna Lindsey's Mallory series (although there is some repetition when you read all 6 books). I've enjoyed her for many years.

I too loved These Old Shades from Georgette Heyer. I'm also a huge fan of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, An Offer From A Gentleman being my fav. And oh what about Celeste Bradley she also has some fun stories like Duke Most Wanted or The Rogue.

It's really difficult to pick just one. So many wonderful books have got a special place in my heart.

LOL Alison! I do love that Brummell story. It's a bit like the Regency version of accidentally hitting "reply all"...

You mean I have to pick just one? There are so many on my keepers shelf, but the one I find myself returning to over and over is Suzanne Enoch's England's Perfect Hero.

Looking forward to this rerelease, Amanda!

A Lady's Guide to Improper Behavior is my favorite romance so far, because I am new reading this genre.

Hi Amanda!
Throw my name in the hat if the contest is open internationally, please. One of my Regency favorites is Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught, even if makes me so mad in some parts.
