Ruining Miss Wrotham - Emily Larkin Summary

*A triple award-winning Regency romance* "One of the most entertaining, heartfelt, and romantic books I have read in forever!" ~ Carla @ NetGalley Eleanor Wrotham has sworn off overbearing men, but she needs a man’s help—and the man who steps forward is as domineering as he is dangerous: the notorious Mordecai Black. The illegitimate son of an earl, Mordecai is infamous for his skill with women. His affairs are legendary—but few people realize that Mordecai has rules, and one of them is: Never ruin a woman. But if Mordecai helps Miss Wrotham, she will be ruined. "An outstanding story that I just could not put down! I finished this book in one sitting." ~ Shakera @ More Books Please Blog Length: Full-length novel of 94,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with steamy love scenes *Winner of the 2018 Romance Writers of Australia Long Romance of the Year Award* *Winner of the 2018 Romance Writers of New Zealand Long Romance of the Year Award* *Winner of the 2018 Romance Writers of New Zealand Best Overall Romance of the Year Award* Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. 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. I think the series could also be labelled Regency Noir, because it falls on the darker, grittier side of the romance fence, although each book contains humor, too. The stories are emotional, but not sweet (there’s sex, violence, and my heroes do swear at times!). 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. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many, many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. What was the catalyst for this series? A magazine article I read in which celebrities were asked what magic power they’d choose and why. That got me thinking! (I’d choose shapeshifting, by the way.) 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 dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!

Trusting Miss Trentham - Emily Larkin Summary

She's more than just an heiress... Letitia Trentham is noteworthy for three reasons. One, she’s extremely wealthy. Two, she can distinguish truth from lies. Three, she’s refused every man who’s ever proposed to her. Until Letty receives a proposal she can’t turn down. Icarus Reid barely survived the Battle of Vimeiro. He lives for one thing—to find the man who betrayed him to the French. He doesn’t want to marry Miss Trentham; he wants to use her talent for uncovering lies. Suddenly, Letty finds herself breaking the rules, pretending to be someone she’s not, and doing things a lady would never do. But her hunt for the truth may uncover more than one secret—including the secret that haunts Icarus day and night. The secret he intends to take to his grave...

Resisting Miss Merryweather - Emily Larkin Summary

*Desert Isle Keeper* “A charming, romantic novella that shows how magical life can be with the right person at your side.” ~ Sara @ All About Romance Sir Barnaby Ware made a mistake two and a half years ago. A massive mistake. The sort of mistake that can never be atoned for. He knows himself to be irredeemable, but the captivating and unconventional Miss Merryweather is determined to prove him wrong. The daughter of a dancing master and a noblewoman, Miss Merryweather had an unusual upbringing. She sees things no one else sees—and she says things no one else says. Sir Barnaby knows he’s the villain in this piece, but Miss Merryweather thinks he’s the hero—and she is damnably hard to resist... “Larkin has a writing style that I adore, and I wholeheartedly recommend this novella.” ~ Lady Blue @ Romantic Historical Reviews “A moving story, with characters brimming with life and emotions.” ~ NetGalley Reviewer Length: Novella of 33,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When I finished writing Unmasking Miss Appleby (the first book in the Baleful Godmother series) I was surprised by how sorry I felt for Sir Barnaby. He’d made a dreadful mistake and ruined the most important friendship in his life. I felt Barnaby deserved a chance to redeem himself, and I also felt that he and Marcus (the hero of Unmasking Miss Appleby) needed to be friends again if they were to be truly happy. How would you describe this book? It's a novella about friendship, forgiveness, and falling in love. There’s also a little science, and some magic. Although it’s a companion novella to Unmasking Miss Appleby, it can be read as a standalone. 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.

Lady Isabella’s Ogre - Emily Larkin Summary

"This story has it all: damsels in distress, villains, heroes, romance, suspense, mistakes & misunderstandings, all wrapped up in one cannot-put-it-down story." ~ Goodreads reviewer She’s one of London’s beauties ... He's London's ogre. Lady Isabella Knox enjoys her independence. She collects strays—dogs, kittens, runaway brides—but she has no intention of collecting a husband. Major Nicholas Reynolds returned from the Battle of Waterloo a hero. He’s had enough of soldiering; all he wants now is a bride ... but his scarred face sends young ladies fleeing—literally. When a slip of her tongue brands the major an ogre—and his chances of marriage disintegrate—Isabella sets out to undo the harm she inadvertently caused. How better to revive the major’s marriage prospects than for the two of them to indulge in a make-believe flirtation? They both know it’s not real, so where’s the danger? But Isabella is soon in over her head—and so is Major Reynolds. “I thoroughly enjoyed this retelling of Beauty and the Beast! A delightful comedy.” ~ Goodreads reviewer (Lady Isabella’s Ogre is a new version of Beauty and the Scarred Hero, which was published under the penname Emily May. The last few chapters have been rewritten. Some things are the same, some are different...)

Primrose and the Dreadful Duke - Emily Larkin Summary

*A double award-winning historical romance* An irrepressible duke, a bookish spinster, a devious murderer ... Regency house parties have never been so hazardous! Oliver Dasenby is the most infuriating man Primrose Garland has ever known. He may be her brother’s best friend, but he has an atrocious sense of humor. Eight years in the cavalry hasn’t taught him solemnity, nor has the unexpected inheritance of a dukedom. But when Oliver inherited his dukedom, it appears that he also inherited a murderer. Oliver might be dreadfully annoying, but Primrose doesn’t want him dead. She’s going to make certain he survives his inheritance—and the only way to do that is to help him catch the murderer! "I read straight through the night. I kept telling myself that I needed to put it down and get some sleep, but it was so interesting and exciting that I just had to see what happened next. Finally, at 7 AM, I read the last word and thought 'Wow, just wow.'" ~ Barbara @ NetGalley Length: Full-length novel of 85,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with steamy love scenes *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Long Romance of the Year Award* *Winner of the 2019 Romance Writers of New Zealand Best Overall Romance of the Year Award* "I read it in one sitting.

The Spinster’s Secret - Emily Larkin Summary

“Straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, despaired, and felt one with a character to this extent.” ~ Punya Reviews Matilda Chapple is penniless, orphaned, and dependent on her uncle’s meager charity—but she’s found a way to escape: she’ll write her way to financial freedom. When Mattie pens a series of titillating short stories, she starts earning money . . . and notoriety. Her secret is safe—until Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, agrees to uncover the anonymous author's identity. Can Mattie conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the virginal spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person? A Regency romance with a battle-scarred hero, an enterprising heroine, a gothic backdrop, and some of the worst food in England. **The Spinster's Secret is the second book in the Midnight Quill Trio, but may be read as a standalone.** Q & A with the author How would you describe this book? Good question! Um . . . a gothic Regency romance with underlying humor? By gothic, I mean that the setting is gothic: an isolated and gloomy manor with dark, drafty corridors and a miserly uncle. There are nightly readings of ‘improving texts’ and some truly awful food! Your hero and heroine are a little unusual. Tell us a bit about them. The heroine, Mattie, is six foot tall—which is a little taller than your average heroine! Edward, the hero, is even taller, and badly scarred from injuries he received at Waterloo. And when I say badly scarred, I mean really badly scarred. Did you do a lot of research for this book? I read two ‘titillating’ novels of the era, Fanny Hill and The Lustful Turk, which were quite ludicrous. The stories Mattie writes are just as silly! 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 book? This book would appeal to readers who like the historical backdrop and understated humor of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, and the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan.

Claiming Mister Kemp - Emily Larkin Summary

A forbidden love... Lucas Kemp’s twin sister died last year. He’s put aside his mourning clothes, but not his heartache. If Lucas ever needed a friend, it’s now—and who should walk in his door but Lieutenant Thomas Matlock... Lucas and Tom are more than just best friends; they’ve been in love with each other for years. In love with each other—and pretending not to know it. But this time, Tom’s not going to ignore the attraction between them. This time, he’s going to push the issue. He’s going to teach Lucas how to laugh again—and he’s going to take Lucas as his lover... "Heartbreakingly gorgeous. Tom is the most incredible hero - patient, understanding, passionate, sensitive. Lucas is so proper and stiff, his struggles so very real and poignant. I love Larkin's stories but this one is exquisite." ~ M.C.E. Top 500 reviewer Length: Shorter length novel of 48,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency male-male romance with sensual love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When Tom and Lucas walked onto the page in Trusting Miss Trentham (the third book in the Baleful Godmother series) I fell in love with them both. I really wanted to know their story—so I decided to write it. I’m very glad I did, because it was so much fun! Lucas is my first ever virgin hero, and I really enjoyed writing his scenes. Claiming Mister Kemp was meant to be a novella, but it grew and grew and grew, until finally I had to admit defeat and call it a (short) novel. How would you describe this book? At its most basic, Claiming Mister Kemp is a friends to lovers romance, but it’s also a story about grief, and about two men finding the courage to love one another in a time when this was punishable by death. I think it’s the most emotional book I’ve ever written. Readers have told me that some scenes make them cry, which I take as a compliment! Claiming Mister Kemp is a Baleful Godmother novel, so both Tom and Lucas have brushes with magic—even if they don’t realize it. And although this book is a companion novel to Trusting Miss Trentham it can be read as a standalone. 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 book? This book will appeal to readers who love male-male romances, Regency romances, or both. Fans of KJ Charles, Joanna Chambers, and Cat Sebastian should particularly enjoy it.

Needless to say, he receives a much-needed shake-up to his world! His best friend is a mischievous marquis who will definitely be getting his own book one day. How would you describe your writing?

But Cecy and Gareth are about to have a wedding night that neither of them expects... *A Regency romance featuring a bride, a groom, and a lesson in love.* Length: One novel and two novellas with a combined length of 104,000 words Sensuality level: These historical romances contain steamy love scenes "A tender story of a love that transcends class differences." ~ Buried Under Romance (The Countess's Groom) “Straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, and felt one with a character to this extent.” ~ Punya Reviews (The Spinster's Secret) "Full of misunderstandings, desires, and erotism. Larkin at her best." ~ Goodreads reviewer (The Baronet's Bride) Q & A with the author In what way are the books in this trio linked? A secret diary links The Countess's Groom and The Spinster's Secret, whereas The Baronet's Bride follows directly on the heels of The Spinster's Secret and features several of the same characters. Do the books have to be read in order? While The Countess's Groom is the prequel to The Spinster's Secret, it's not necessary to read it first. In fact, quite a few people choose to read it last! However, I do very strongly recommend reading The Spinster's Secret before The Baronet's Bride, as these two stories follow directly after one another. 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.
