“Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun…”

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

I recently received a wonderful review for A Bride for the Season from the Historical Novel Society. They even mention Much Ado About Nothing, which makes the Shakespeare geek in me very, very happy!

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

“This delightful Victorian romance (set in 1853) concludes Delamere’s Love’s Grace Trilogy yet can just as easily be enjoyed on its own, independent of the series. There is something in this story that is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, including the complexity of the characters and the amusing resolution of the plot. Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun—and all that without a single scene of graphic love!—A Bride for the Season is a most enjoyable read.”



Historical Novel Society Review for “A Lady Most Lovely”

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

So happy to receive a wonderful review from the Historical Novel Society for A Lady Most Lovely.

Here is an excerpt from their review:

“Tom and Margaret’s worlds collide in electric, sometimes violent, ways, leaving readers wondering if they can find love together when the only people able to keep them apart are themselves. Both of them must learn when to fight and when to surrender to their desire, and both must also determine when to hold on to what’s been left, and when to let go and begin a brand new legacy.

Readers will appreciate the way the plot swerves early in the book, away from historical romance’s traditional love triangle angst and into a complex, character-driven climax. It’s easy to care about Tom and Margaret and their world, yet difficult to predict what will happen to them.”
