It's Christmastime on my blog!...starting with The Twelfth Night Wager! and The Holly & The Thistle!
THE REDHEADED RAKE, THE INNOCENT WIDOW
It was a dull day at White’s, the day Christopher St. Ives, Viscount Eustace agreed to the wager: seduce bed and walk away from the lovely Lady Leisterfield, all by Twelfth Night. This holiday season, Christopher planned to give himself a gift.
Here's what the reviewers say:
"...a sweet sexy sugar cookie of a title." --Library Journal
"A handsome rake, a virtuous widow, and a scandalous holiday wager. I loved the chase!” --National bestselling author and RITA Award–winner Kaki Warner
"Loved the sizzling attraction between these two and the little Christmas magic that bought the two together. The Twelfth Night Wager had everything I could ask for. Wonderful romance, likeable characters, and a sweet storyline!" --Lilly Pond Reads
"A delightful novella that is best served with a warm drink and a smile on your face." --Amazon reviewer
"This delightful Regency romance really packs a punch! I really loved this story! By the way, in this story you'll meet some of the characters in Ms. Walker's Agents of the Crown trilogy...and I highly recommend it." --Amazon reviewer
“…a beautiful story filled with a little mystery, a little fun and A LOT of romance." --The Reading Cafe
Here's a short snippet:
THE RACE BEGINS
Eustace slowed the horses and guided the phaeton to the side of the path. Holding the reins in one hand, he turned to face to her. His eyes seemed to glow in the dim light.
“I never would have thought the serene Lady Leisterfield would be so stimulated by a ride in the park. You are flushed and your eyes bright. I do think you enjoyed our dash through the Row.”
“Yes, I quite liked it,” Grace said, breathless. “Though you must admit, the ride was more like a race.”
He looked at her lips and then her neck. “I can see your pulse jumping. Perhaps you like to race as much as I do.”
Grace wondered if he was still speaking of horses or something else. Her heart sped as he leaned toward her and brushed his lips across hers. After only a moment, she pulled back.
“Too soon?” he asked.
“That question implies such is inevitable, my lord. I can assure you it is not.”
And then, to find out what happens to Lady Emily Picton (a secondary character) and how she falls in love with a Highlander, there's The Holly & The Thistle.
"...a wonderful addition to any romance lover's collection and in this reviewer's humble opinion, goes best with some chocolates and a nice glass of wine." --Breath of Life Reviews
From a 5 Star review on Amazon:
"One of Regan Walker's strengths as a writer of historical romance is characterization, and in this charming holiday story she excels in this regard. Lady Emily Picton, an attractive but set-in-her-ways widow was once married to a brute of a man and has vowed never to place herself again under any man's "ownership", a man who would, in her very amusing description, "put her in a sack like a rabbit" and carry her home. But she didn't wager on the strength of character of a wonderful shipbuilder Scot, William Stephen, whose path she crosses at Berry's Wine Shop. The gentleman is smitten and vows to make her his wife and take her back to Scotland. A war of wills ensues in this enjoyable romantic tale that I highly recommend for anyone who wants to get into the holiday spirit."
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Stay tuned to my blog as I share my favorite heroes and heroines and my Top 20 list!
