About the Book

Gentleman’s Trade
Rain fell in sheets that fateful day and, to lovely Vanessa Mannion’s dismay, turned New Orleans’ main street into one big mud puddle… But even with skirts held high, it isn’t half as alarming as being caught with muddy ankles by arrogant Britisher, Hugh Talverton. Embarrassed, Vanessa determines to ignore Hugh at a party. Then, when Creole and plantation beauties swarm around him, she simmers in irritation and, in a fit of pique, pursues another would-be suitor. Her ploy will lead to a tangle of heartstrings, romance awry, and a lesson in love…

A Heart in Jeopardy
She risked her life for honor… And her heart for love. The scions of Crawford’s Dean did not like the family who rented Leona Leonard’s ancestral home, and so they came to tell her: There’s something strange going on in that house. Leona promises to investigate, but snooping leads to danger, and when danger forces her to seek sanctuary at Deveraux’s ancestral castle, she discovers the passion beneath his honorable intentions … and a soul-searing desire that would flame into a breathtaking love!

The Rocking Horse
Miss Jocelyn Maybrey sees the Christmas holiday invitation to Bayneville Castle, the country estate of the 8th Marquess of Tarkington, as a perfect way to clear her head and consider her future. The house party was to celebrate her friend Lady Mary Bayne’s betrothal. But when Lady Mary contracts a wicked cold and becomes bedridden, Jocelyn finds herself thrown into the Marquess’s company. But what amazed her was the wood-turning lessons she found him taking from the estate carpenter. He was making a rocking horse, not watching its creation. The handmade toy was Lord Tarkington’s gift for his young daughter. His labor of love touched Jocelyn, and she knew she had found her heart’s desire…

About the Author
Holly Newman

Holly Newman is a pseudonym for Holly Thompson. She lives in Florida seven miles from the Gulf Coast with Ken and their six cats. Holly decided to be a writer when she was in the fifth grade and filled notebooks with stories—until a mean-spirited high school teacher told her she had no talent for writing. Crushed, for several years she stopped writing, but the writing bug didn’t go away. Her first book won first place in the University of Texas at Dallas fiction writing competition and was first runner-up for the Rita award from Romance Writers of America.

Holly’s interest in the Regency period came while in high school and she volunteered to re-shelve returned books at the community library. Every week there were Georgette Heyer novels to be shelved. Curious, she checked one out and became immersed in the world of the regency.

Fast forward ten years. When attending Science Fiction Conventions she met people who read science fiction; but also enjoyed the works of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, just as she did. They liked these books so much that they wore regency costumes at the science fiction convention. They even had regency era dancing on the convention program. These Science Fiction readers and writers knew a lot about the regency era. Intrigued, Holly did research on the era and quickly went from being a casual regency reader to a regency history buff. After that, with encouragement from science fiction authors, it was just a small step to writing regencies.
