About the Author: Lauren Royal

I decided to become a writer in the third grade or, Lost in Epub / as my Canadian friends call it, grade three , after winning a Why My Mother is the Greatest essay contest and having my entry published in a major newspaper Seeing my words in print was a thrill But everyone told me it s too hard for novelists to get published, so after college I spent fourteen years as the CEO of my own jewelry store chain before writing my first book A mistake Maybebut my first heroine, Amethyst, was a jeweler, so at least I took advantage of that wise old saying, Write what you know And I learned a good lesson Don t let other people tell you what you can or can t do I write humorous historical romance mostly set in England and Scotland in the th and th centuries Restoration and Regency periods I ve been oh so lucky to see my books hit bestseller lists all over the world, including the New York Times and USA Today lists, making this second career a real dream come true I live in Southern California with my husband, our three young adult children, and one constantly shedding cat, and I still think my mother is the greatest Visit my website at where you can see the real people and real places in my books, enter a contest, sign up for my newsletter, and find historical recipes for the foods in my booksFollow me onFacebook Profile facebook readLaurenRoyalFacebook Page facebook LaurenRoyalTwitter twitter readLaurenRoyal readLaurenRoyal Pinterest pinterest LaurenRoyal.

    4.25 starsI think this book could actually be split into part 1 and part 2 Part 1 focuses on Alexandra and Tristan Tris getting reacquainted They haven t seen each other in seven years and have a lot of catching up to do However, Alexandra s brother, Griffin, would really not have Alexandra renew her love for Tris and marry someone else, almost anyone else as Tris is suspected to be involved in his uncle s death years before Tris declares to never marry Alexandra to protect her and her fam 4.25 starsI think this book could actually be split into part 1 and part 2 Part 1 focuses on Alexandra and Tristan Tris getting reacquainted They haven t seen each other in seven years and have a lot of catching up to do However, Alexandra s brother, Griffin, would really not have Alexandra renew her love for Tris and marry someone else, almost anyone else as Tris is suspected to be involved in his uncle s death years before Tris declares to never marry Alexandra to protect her and her family s reputation from his tainted name but never say never Mr Nesbitt Then there is Griffin who is exhaustingly working to get his three sisters married so he can get on with his bachelorhood Part 2 would focus on Alexandra doing everything she can to clear Tris name so they can be happy and to protect her family s reputation She is very determined Both imaginary parts are really good I was watching Alexandra and Tris interact or possibly try to avoid each other failing as a matter of fact and loving it and the great mystery of Tris uncle s death was very intriguing Both parts of the book don t feel like they need to be separate and flow together quite nicely but there are two main focuses dividing the book I feel like this book is longer than the 400ish pages Don t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story but I felt like I was reading it for a long time but that isn t necessarily a bad thing All of the characters were great I adored them Alexandra, her two sisters, Griffin and Tris were all so likeable The Chase family makes sweets all the time so I was drooling a lot of the time I also liked their, very, very distant cousin, Rachel who just belongs with Griffin, even if they don t see it, yet I think their relationship will developso in the next couple of books Can t wait I almost forgot to mention that Tris sleepwalks He just ends up in the strangest places doing some things he probably shouldn t be doing Probably my favorite parts are anytime he sleepwalks So good Overall, this was a great romance which was surprisingly funny and very sweet I definitely plan to read the next two books

    If you are thinking of reading it, don t Save yourself the time I read this two years ago but this book made me so angry that I still remember it Alexandra is the worst kind of female characters the know it all girl meddling into other people s affairs even though she was clearly told not to And what do you know Everything turned out for the best so it was great that she interfered I wish I can forget that such callous characters exist.

collaboration with her daughter They claim it s PG and appropriate for young adults but it ssensual than Georgette Heyer while still being clean.Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what is proper and right She values the traditions of her late mother and ancestors and tries to set a good example for her sisters She is even going to marry the man her brother chooses for her until her childhood love Tristan Nesbitt returns to her life Then Alexandra finds herself rebelling against Regency Etiquette The Mirror of Graces, 1811 and her brother s rules Griffin is in despair He never thought he would inherit the Marquisate and though he wants to do a good job, bringing up three younger sisters is a challenge The sooner he gets them married off the better He enlists the aid of his oldest and dearest friend Tris, who has also unexpectedly returned to England from Jamaica to inherit a Marquisate Tristan, the new Marquess of Hawkridge has come to Cainewood Castle to help his old friend not with his sister problem, thank goodness, but his estate management problem Tristan refuses to be married to anyone let alone his best friend s sisters He hides a dark secret that makes him ineligible as a husband for anyone, let alone the beautiful and bold Lady Alexandra Chase Alexandra is determined not to take no for an answer This story is half romance novel and half mystery marriage of convenience I didn t understand why Alexandra didn t propose to solve the mystery right away The first thing I would have asked was Did you try and said Tris didn t try very hard and let me find the answer That doesn t come until halfway through the book when Tris has been dancing around the elephant in the room that is his attraction to Alexandra The mystery was difficult to solve though I wasn t entirely surprised at what happened at the end As a romance novel, this story works well The opening scene is lovely It s farintimate and romantic than the closed door love scenes between a married couple that are implied later on in the book Alexandra acts very silly at times but as her sister points out, she s only 17 The author tried a little too hard to make Alexandra a littlemodern with her teenage rebellion Alexandra and her sisters routinely quote from an advice manual that was most assuredly written by a man They are aware of what is proper yet Alexandra and her sisters routinely dismiss the advice Those rules are in place for a reason If Society as a whole rejected the advice it would be one thing but to do as Alexandra does would be beyond the pale Alexandra would never be in a room with a man Period End of story Not even her brother s best friend The author is aware of this and it comes out later in the book but in my opinion, it takes too long.I love the warm relationship between Alexandra and her sisters Each has her own strengths Juliana is the sweet one, forever trying to meddle to make everyone happy the way she wants them to be Corinna isindependent and free spirited I liked her a lot I m a big sister like Alexandra and wish I had two best friend sisters like her Griffin, on the other hand, is a bit messy and complicated Unlike his sisters, he feels lost As a second son, he wasn t groomed for the Marquisate but for the military Sometimes his military bearing comes out too strong when dealing with his sisters Griffin can t admit his sisters are grown up sometimes yet is eager to marry them off I didn t like his methods and strict timeline It made him seem immature and selfish I would think as the second son, he would have thought of himself as the heir to Charles until such a time as his older brother married The story sets the stage for a future romance for Griffin I think he has met his match in this book and she will keep him from being too tough on the younger girls I loved the independent young woman Rachael, Alexandra s cousin She is intelligent and tough I m not sure her qualms about cousin marriage are plausible for the period.Then we have Tris a brooding, emotionally wounded hero He is having a tough time settling into his new role He planned to become a man of business on his uncle s Jamaican plantation The question of slavery arises late in the book It probably wouldn t have been an issue Jane Austen s family were anti slavery and yet her father oversaw the management of a young relative s West Indian property His fears about his problem are honest ones and sound rather scary I don t blame him for being moody and withdrawn He flirts well with Alexandra and I like them together They have good chemistry yet in the second half of the book I found him maddening and annoying I didn t like how he refused to admit his true feelings He needs Alexandra to take him in hand and make him see reason I especially loved the period recipes included in this book I recognized some of them The gingerbread cookie recipe comes from Hannah Glasse and is the basis of Colonial Williamsburg s amazing ginger cakes See their recipe and baking tips and another recipe here I also recognized Chocolate Puffs I ve made those and they are delicious FYI Powdered sugar in period language doesn t mean confectioner s sugar It means finely ground white sugar I am not interested in any of the other recipes but I loved how they all came from period sources but were incorporated into the novels as part of a family history.E book freebie

    I liked the read.although the plot devices were a bit elementary and the love between the main characters underdeveloped That being said I will not be reading any of this series I began reading The Chase family s stories from the beginning so even though this is generations later and it is practical to kill the grandparents and parentsI didn t like it.when I read a book with a HEA the characters are immortal in mindand I can sleep peacefully at night knowing nothing will ever h I liked the read.although the plot devices were a bit elementary and the love between the main characters underdeveloped That being said I will not be reading any of this series I began reading The Chase family s stories from the beginning so even though this is generations later and it is practical to kill the grandparents and parentsI didn t like it.when I read a book with a HEA the characters are immortal in mindand I can sleep peacefully at night knowing nothing will ever happen to them.not in this case ,.Damn it if I wanted practicality and reality I wouldn t be reading fictionshence time to say good bye to Lauren Royal.she killed my immortal characters and ruined HEAs for me lol

    Hopefully I didn t pay any than 2.99 for this one Bored out of my gourd and going back looking for something to read and came across this in an anthology about good guys Uh, this hero was not a good guy I m not even sure why he would be considered a romantic hero either To make matters worse the plot in this is beyond ridiculous The ton rejects the hero because they believe he poisoned his uncle to inherit his title So, just to clarify, an old, sick man passes away peacefully in his Hopefully I didn t pay any than 2.99 for this one Bored out of my gourd and going back looking for something to read and came across this in an anthology about good guys Uh, this hero was not a good guy I m not even sure why he would be considered a romantic hero either To make matters worse the plot in this is beyond ridiculous The ton rejects the hero because they believe he poisoned his uncle to inherit his title So, just to clarify, an old, sick man passes away peacefully in his sleep and the ton immediately suspects the handsome, intelligent, unmarried heir of murder and rejects him WTF To compound the ridiculousness here, the hero believes he killed in his uncle while sleepwalking Throughout the story, the hero manages to perform some rather amazing feats while sleepwalking including crawling into bed and doing the deed well everything except actual penetration that is with the heroine I assume the author felt compelled to preserve our heroine s virginity for some reason There is so muchwrong with this story that I can t even begin to itemize them all Other readers seem to have enjoyed the story but if you expect appealing characters and a plausible and engaging plot line, I suggest you don t waste your time on this mess of a book Or, if you enjoy reading about a heroine who remains true to her first love while he visits brothels and gets engaged to multiple other women over a 7 year period, this one may also be for you

    The pacing was really off in this book Good beginning, boring middle, neatly wrapped and predictable ending.

    I had not read any of this author s books and, although my main interest for several years has been JAFF, the book description and the free offer led me to purchase this book As there are over 400 reviews and as the majority of them are 5 stars it is clear that this author and this book are both winners I did note that it is one of a long series on the Chase ancestors and on the other sisters to the main heroine in this tale The Sample goes into the 7th chapter so you can get a good taste o I had not read any of this author s books and, although my main interest for several years has been JAFF, the book description and the free offer led me to purchase this book As there are over 400 reviews and as the majority of them are 5 stars it is clear that this author and this book are both winners I did note that it is one of a long series on the Chase ancestors and on the other sisters to the main heroine in this tale The Sample goes into the 7th chapter so you can get a good taste of what this book entails before deciding to read it.This book has several interesting details one is the inclusion of recipes now and then at the beginning of chapters in which Alexandra and at times her sisters are baking up a batch of traditional family sweets, all of which are good for curing an ill or performing magic, i.e., the use of ratafia puffs to get a man to propose However, the recipes are in such a small font size on my kindle that I could not read them easily so made no copies of those The relationships, first between the sisters and even the brother to his sisters and then between Tris and Alexandra, were written as very open and warm relationships When Lady Alexandra confesses her love for Tris, her sisters conspire to put them into compromising situations all the while denying his reputation will ruin their chances in society if a marriage comes about for any reason Then there is the birds and the bees talk Griffin gives his sister I personally found this hilarious And at the same time a bit unrealistic I doubt any brother in that day and age would do so If there were no female relatives to help out, a housekeeper would be a resource or even a ladies maid And then the relationship between the main protagonists as they meet again after7 years was muchhonest and open given the time lapse and the age difference than I would expect to read in a novel of this genre.The romance plays out pretty uncomplicated they have admitted their attraction dating back to when he was a second son with no fortune, off to help his Uncle Harold in Jamaica and she was the young teen aged sister to his best friend, also a second son Griffin HOWEVER his name has been touched with scandal and even though he now has a title and fortune, the scandal affects his standing in society and his prospects of making any respectable marriage arrangement But then there is this malady from which he has suffered from childhood This malady plays a significant part in his relationship to Alexandra from beginning to end And the knowledge of such also is used to play up the possibility of his guilt for a dastardly deed in the tale.The book has two parts one the romance and two the mystery I liked this story but it was not so tense as to make it into a page turner For me it wasof a decision that I was going to read it to the end I was able to figure out a certain person s sly role in diverting attention before that fact was revealed by the author I did like this book and would recommend it just as a sweet romance and as part of an ongoing series if you like to get into series

    A single kiss signifies nothing a single kiss can promise everything When Lady Alexandra Chase and Lord Tristan Nesbitt admitted to the feelings they had shared, for years toward each other, the kiss that followed seemed so innocent, it felt so right Although he admitted that their love was a forbidden one, they were both lost in its temptation Tristan was lowly born to a second son, upon the unexpected death of his uncle, he was suddenly heir apparent and Lord Hawkridge, with a terrible ble A single kiss signifies nothing a single kiss can promise everything When Lady Alexandra Chase and Lord Tristan Nesbitt admitted to the feelings they had shared, for years toward each other, the kiss that followed seemed so innocent, it felt so right Although he admitted that their love was a forbidden one, they were both lost in its temptation Tristan was lowly born to a second son, upon the unexpected death of his uncle, he was suddenly heir apparent and Lord Hawkridge, with a terrible blemish on his name that can never be cleansed Unfounded accusations hinting of his hand in the sudden demise of his uncle spread through the ton, making him totally unsuitable for a good marriage A marriage to Tristan would place a social blight on Alexandra and the whole Chase family.In this time when unmarried women were always accompanied by chaperones skin to skin touches was deemed scandalous, and a single chaste kiss practically a proposal of marriage, proper courting was almost an exact science In a world where women are covered from head to foot, the accidental sight of an unclad ankle or shoulder could send a man s fantasies into turmoil This makes all of the openness and liberties we now take for granted, extremely provocative Social censorships make life very restricted for ladies of proper breeding Some social obstacles were too large to conquer but occasionally mutual love finds a way.The long shared attraction and feelings between Tristan Nesbitt and Alexandra Chase leads to a forbidden love, and even though they tried to fight it, the battle was lost before it was even started They both knew that they were playing with fire and they both longed to be scorched by this illicit flame of passion.This is the first book in the Regency Chase Family series and brings the reader intimately close to English life in the regency period The author has a gift of bringing her characters to life She exposes their strengths and weaknesses, making them real Solving the mystery of Tristan s uncle s death adds a dark side to the story that grabs and holds on to the reader to the very end I found myself swept away with their attraction, and Lord Griffin Chase s romantic predicament only added spice to the story This is sure a tale to entice the most demanding readers
