I shall start with the obvious. This book is sweet, clean, and has a regency timeframe. What you must read is the story of a lovely young woman who has befallen the worst of all circumstances. When she should be in her debut into polite society with the 'Ton, seeking a husband; her mother is dead. Frannie has one clue and a missing fortune, a potentially confusing linage, and that's the very tip of things. I stayed glued to the pages of this delightful read. It has fantastic humor and plenty of romance, and I love the language. It's also helped along by a bit of mystery, and an amazing hero, Sebastian. I absolutely loved this story.
It can be read alone, but I'm so addicted to this series now, that I can't fathom why anyone else would read just one. The only drawbacks are that Frannie is just so lost to the ways of the world that she does very silly things, which to us are obviously not going to work, but do add to the humor of the story. I can't rate this book less than

Linore: I do. Newer writers usually say their purpose is to write whatever specific book they’re working on. But I believe our purpose goes deeper than that, deeper than any single book. My purpose—which some may consider a humble calling—is to write smart, well-researched romance infused with humor that literally warms the heart. My readers close my romance novels with a smile and the feeling—at least for a few minutes—that all is right with the world.
- When did you realize that was your purpose?
A writer needs to be humble enough to accept what their giftings are. I had to accept that I wasn’t going to write the next ‘great American novel.’ I wasn’t going to be a Hemingway. Having been schooled in the classics, both British and American, writing inspirational romance seems lightweight. Georgette Heyer, a writer I greatly admire, once said she ought to be shot for what she writes! Because there’s this perception among the literati that romance literature is less than respectable. But I’ve learned that heartwarming romance is worthy in itself, whether it is overtly evangelistic or not, and whether English professors would agree or not. Readers have written to me with such gratitude that it showed me that what I write is no less valuable –to those who will be blessed by it—than the classics.
- How did you get started?
I’ve been an avid reader all my life and was always was drawn to write, even as a child. But I saw a need for something specific that wasn’t out there—Regency Romance that included a Christian worldview. I wanted to read that book, but it didn’t exist. So that’s what I started out writing. My first three
- Would you like to give a tip for writers?
It’s important to write the book on your heart, not the one you think you should write because it will make money, or because it’s what people want. A lot of gurus are out there saying you should research the audience before putting pen to paper to make sure your book will be marketable. Well, there is some truth in that—if you write a book about some obscure dog breed that only 200 people own, you’re not gonna
