From the list on spicy historical romance.
Who am I?
Like many of us over (ahem…we’ll say) 40, I grew up reading historical romance—those were the first full-length romance novels on store shelves. My mum is British and visits there added to my interest in Regency England. Then 50 Shades exploded and people’s spice level tolerance increased. But mainly in contemporary romance, with all the tools and toys. Curious as to how spice in the Regency would look, I went searching. I found a few of these fabulous authors, but not many choices, so I decided to write one. Now there are more authors published in this subgenre, and I’m proud to be one of them.
Maggie's book list on spicy historical romance
Why did Maggie love this book?
This was the first spicy Regency book I read, and this series and author inspired me to write in this niche subgenre. In fact, Annabel was kind enough to provide a cover quote for my debut novel.
Training Lady Townsend includes all the catnip of a Regency—an arranged marriage, titled lords, the bride’s father laying down the rules for the rake-turned-groom. The layers of how Lady Aurelia and Lord Hunter adapt to marriage include emotional as well as physical learnings, and are expertly balanced in a slightly less traditional telling of a traditional romance.
