Historical Romance/Regency/Short Reads


The Devil of Davenport is in need of a bride. Everyone knows the wicked earl is looking to wed, but only his childhood friend, Anne, knows his secret. Despite what society believes, he’s not a devil–not really. Not at all. Of course, he’s no saint either. He’s a man. One she hopes will solve all her family’s financial woes by marrying her eldest sister, the only sibling not tainted by scandal.
But the earl has other plans. While Anne’s sister is the safe choice, she’s not the one who makes his pulse race. There’s only one who can tame his wicked ways, but choosing Anne will thrust her into the type of scandal she’s tried so hard to avoid. Can a devil like him ever win an angel?





The devil and his bastard bride

Earl of Davenport may be a quick read, but it is a complete story.  Fully developed story and characters. Frederick is known as the Devil of Davenport but Anne sees the kindness, goodness, and wild spirit in him. Anne had been raised believing she is an outcast, not wife material, especially for an Earl, and the subject of gossip and scorn from the ton. Frederick sees in her the face and soul of an angel and courage and spirit of a little hellion. They are both unwanted in society; him for his reckless behavior, and her for her questionable parentage. They are a perfectly matched couple who find their Happily Ever After. A really enjoyable, quick read.
