What's New at The Regency Lover's Cafe
What's New at The Regency Lover's Cafe™ I plan on adding more webpages for the Regency authors I have read in the past who don't have a link on the Internet. I know as an avid Regency fan, I would like to see an author's booklist and what the bookcovers may have looked like.
I will be working on more Regency-related historical pages in the future. Hopefully some pictoral ones related to the Regency and French Revolution era.

Deborah Matthews is featured author in Regency Lover's Book Drawing. Titled "The Duchess and The Devil" it sounds very interesting:) Here is the back cover blurb: A DEVILISH DILEMMA... Young, impetuous, and hopelessly in love, Leandra Sterling never imagined that Adam Lawton would join the war against Bonaparte-- or that she would find herself carrying his child after he was gone. When her parents insisted on a hasty marriage to none other than Adam's aging cousin, Leandra was certain her fate couldn't be worse. Then her husband died, leaving her at the mercy of Adam himself, the one man who despised her...and the only man she'd every wanted. A PASSIONATE SOLUTION... With his cousin's death, Adam gained not only a title, but a chance to take revenge against the woman who had betrayed him so cruelly. Yet Adam was shocked to find that beautiful Leandra still had the power to touch his heart. And with her adorable twin daughters clamoring for his attention--and winning his affection-- vengeance suddenly seemed distasteful. What was the truth behind Leandra's marriage to his cousin? And did that matter more than the passion in her every kiss? ======================================================================================

Marx Toys Sampler
Current and Upcoming Releases updated (Favorite Authors). Allreader.com is helping readers discover new genres and authors. You can review your favorite author by going to Allreader.com and selecting the type book you like and file a review.

Mid-May - Started first in series of people and places of the French Revolution. Madame Du Barri is the first. Look on the main home page for this link.
May - I created a site for Regency author Mary Chase Comstock. She helped me greatly with information and comments. You will find her on The Regency Authors Page. Evelyn Olivieri has a wonderful site of information on so many things Regency and related items. You will want to take a tour! Her website is called The Historical Romance Reader.
March - I found a neat site for regency book lovers - Regencies.com is solely regency based books. A used book online store that deals only in regency stories. The link is on the Online Services page.
February - Hi, glad you could come back to visit. Paula Creed won the last book drawing. Andrea Picken's new book "Second Chances" is the current drawing prize. Favorite Authors page is updated, there are some nice covers shown and news on authors I like to read. I have added more Regency authors to the regency author links list. Finished the list of current and upcoming releases for my favorite authors. These are almost all regency books with a few of my other favorite authors included; for I use this list as a wish list (grin). Another neat site, Regency Series Guide lets you check your book to see if they are part of a sequel or series storyline; was added to the frontpage and to the Online Services for Romance Readers. Romance Writers of America has a searchable database of romance novels where you can search by character name, plot, location, etc. Really neat! This is located on the Online Services page.
January - Hello, I can't believe that I have been doing this page for a year this month. I have learned some very different skills (still learning :) and met some very nice people through the internet. I thought this page could keep you up with what is new to this site.
January sees the addition of some new authors I have read and enjoyed. And these include authors other than regencies, though they remain my most favorite to read (grin). Leigh Greenwood's "Seven Brides" series was particularly good and engrossing. I have Connie Brockway's first of the McClairen's Isle trilogy "The Passionate One" and am looking forward to "The Reckless One" and "The Ravishing One". Rita Boucher's book "The Poet and The Paragon" I thoroughly enjoyed for all the complex feelings of the characters. I am trying to find a website for her to add to my regency authors page.
A neat site to look at for the flavor of life during regency times is Castles, Palaces and Stately Homes of Britain. The designer of this site also has Lousia's Magical Romance Reading Website (paranormal romance) which has an abundance of information. This and The Elusive Title are at the online services site. The Elusive Title, helps you solve the question of "what book was that?" If you can remember part of the story, but not the title, she has a form you can fill out and she will try to solve it for you!
The double winners of the Christmas drawing are listed on the Book Drawing site along with the Barbara Hazard and Shelia Walsh books for next drawing.
Several additions to Online Services for the Romance Reader; one Darlene's Paperback Exchange is a local used book store where she will hunt for old ones you may need. Belles and Beaux of Romance is a nice mix of author interviews, book reviews and news. Cyn's Trading Post, Subversion, and FictionDB.com are interesting sites to visit in quest of backlists or new additions.
