"Almost Perfect proves as engaging and satisfying as [Denise Domning's] Medieval romances. I hope that this will not be the last book, or the last romance, from this very talented author."

Meet the Author

I must admit to really liking these two characters. Even better, their story takes place in one of the most beautiful and desolate landscape I've ever seen. The border area between Scotland and England has been a place of dissension for eons, probably starting long before the ice bridge between England and the Continent thawed. Why did Hadrian build that wall of his? Because it slows down the inhabitants from either side of the wall as they carry stolen cattle, property and, yes, women, back to their own side of the border. Of course, if we hadn't had the border folk we'd be poorer some great words, like blackmail, or games, like rugby. Lucien's lodge, the pele tower, is an actual style of home for the area. The way the hills fold behind his home is referred to as a "beef-tub", which is essentially a hidden place where the denizens who did manage to carry cattle over Hadrian's wall stashed their stolen beef. And, the abbey Devanney's house party goes off to visit is based on the lyrical ruins of Melrose Abbey.

So, for what it's worth I hope you've enjoyed my stab at a Regency Era romance. Thanks for trying it!

    What a great romp! It has everything I require in a story: laughter, heros who aren't perfect, sex, romance and a happy ending. Brava!

    Denise has written a winning story! I was vested in the story r

    Denise has written a winning story! I was vested in the story right from the beginning and was very disappointed when it was over. Lucien and Cassie are a great couple...proving that love can be forever. There are so many interesting characters who became friends and now i can't help but wonder how their lives were...All I can say is this is not Almost Perfect...it's Absolutely Perfect. Thank you Denise for a truly lovely story.

    I truly loved it

    Denise did a great job jumping from medevial to regency........The heroine was a hoot and Lucien held his place brilliantly! Now are Percy, Ryecoft, & the colonel get their true loves?
