From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the first in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series. Jack Coltrane grew up with his father's red-haired tomboy ward Meredith Fairfax chasing after him, always begging to tag along in his adventures during the years they resided at Coltrane House. Jack was variously annoyed, flattered, and as the years passed and childhood faded, both he and Merry sensed a slow change in their relationship. Friendship, blossoming into love. Love for each other, and a combined love for Coltrane House, fast falling into disrepair by his neglectful father. But one day the estate would be his, and Jack and Merry would make it beautiful again, raise their children there, and live happily ever after. Theirs was the perfect dream, until Jack's father took him aside to tell him something that sent his son fleeing from Coltrane House, away from Merry, perhaps never to return. Ah, love... why is it never easy? Oh...and then there's Jack's quite singular friend from America, and possibly a pair of matchmaking ghosts. Ghosts? Well, certainly - why not? Everyone loves a happy ending! **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels (just copy and paste into your browser)**

From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the third in her LOVE IN THE REGENCY series. There are not many men who can say they attended their own funeral, but Brady James, Earl of Singleton is no ordinary man. He’s also, happily, not a dead man, which he is certain was the object of the trio of scoundrels who had lately tied him up and tossed him headfirst into the Thames. Of course, there’s also the matter of why he’d been skulking about the bowels of London after midnight, and her name is Regina Bliss. Mysterious, with an ability to lie that would shame the devil himself, Regina is a recent rescue from the London streets, and Brady has taken it into his head to find out where the dratted girl came from… and why she bothers him so. To accomplish his aim, Brady needs to return to London, but certainly not as himself (that would be awkward), and he needs the irritating Miss Bliss to come with him. What to do? Why, he could pretend to be his own heir — a totally worthless, chuckleheaded moron of a dandy he’d rather die (again) to keep from the earldom. It could work. It should work. If only he could get past his attraction for Miss Bliss as she, horror of horrors, teaches him how to play the fop. **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels (just copy and paste into your browser)**

In this reimagining of Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy's primary reason for coming to Hertfordshire is not to assist Mr. Bingley; rather, he is finding it difficult to decide between duty and happiness as he considers two women in Kent as prospective brides. But in the midst of gaining distance from his dilemma, he never once considered the possibility that his eye could be caught by someone so much lower than him in consequence as Elizabeth Bennet. Meanwhile, Elizabeth, who lives a sheltered life in Hertfordshire, is unwilling to fully participate in society and has no desire to find a husband. She has been hurt by love in the past, and she is none too eager to expose herself in such a fashion again. With other alterations to Austen's novel-such as a more decisive Mr. Bingley and a surprising choice of bride by Mr. Collins-this novel provides something new for Austen enthusiasts to enjoy while still being able to relish in the familiarity of the characters we have all grown to know and love.

In the Family Way

Illegitimacy Between the Great War and the Swinging Sixties

Author: Jane Robinson

Publisher: Penguin UK

ISBN: 0241962927

Category: History

Page: 352

View: 7875

Unmarried mothers, absent fathers, orphaned children - Jane Robinson's In the Family Way is a truly gripping book about long-buried secrets, family bonds and unlikely heroes. Only a generation or two ago, illegitimacy was one of the most shameful things that could happen in a family. Unmarried mothers were considered immoral, single fathers feckless and bastard children inherently defective. They were hidden away from friends and relations as guilty secrets, punished by society and denied their place in the family tree. Today, the concept of illegitimacy no longer exists in law, and babies' parents are as likely to be unmarried as married. This revolution in public opinion makes it easy to forget what it was really like to give birth, or be born, out of wedlock in the years between World War One and the dawn of the Permissive Age. By speaking to those involved - many of whom have never felt able to talk about their experiences before - Jane Robinson reveals a story not only of shame and appalling prejudice, but also of triumph and the every-day strength of the human spirit. In the Family Way tells secrets kept for entire lifetimes and rescues from the shadows an important part of all our family histories. In it we hear long-silent voices from the workhouse, the Magdalene Laundry or the distant mother-and-baby home. Anonymous childhoods are recalled, spent in the care of Dr Barnardo or a Child Migration scheme halfway across the world. There are sorrowful stories in this book, but it is also about hope: about supportive families who defied social expectations by welcoming 'love-children' home, or those who were parted and are now reconciled. Most of all, In the Family Way is about finally telling the truth. Praise for Bluestockings 'A gem of a book. Social history of the best kind' Sunday Times 'Fascinating. Inspiring. Impassioned and wonderfully entertaining' Scotsman Jane Robinson was born in Edinburgh and brought up in North Yorkshire. After reading English at Somerville College, Oxford, she became an antiquarian book dealer, and later a writer and lecturer. In the Family Way is her ninth book, and like her previous work, including the acclaimed Bluestockings and A Force to Be Reckoned With, it confirms her as one of our most engaging and original social historians. Jane lives near Oxford with her husband and two sons.
