I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England – with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. Why did you write this series?I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows.How would you describe your writing?Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments.Who would like this series?This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the emotion of Mary Balogh and Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!What order should I read the series in?Each book, whether a novel or novella, can be read as a standalone, but many readers prefer to read them in order. And although the series is set in Regency England, a quartet of medieval novellas form the prequel.The ideal reading order would be:The Fey Quartet (series prequel)Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s PromiseIvy’s ChoiceLarkspur’s QuestThe Baleful Godmother seriesUnmasking Miss ApplebyResisting Miss MerryweatherTrusting Miss TrenthamClaiming Mister KempRuining Miss WrothamDiscovering Miss DalrymplePlus more interlinked Baleful Godmother series to come.Happy reading!
