Overview

Antonia Moreson is the daughter of a respected physician living in Kent. When her father is called away on another case, she becomes responsible for an ill soldier, a Captain Lord Robert Quentin, the Earl of Gramsham. Through a long night of intensive nursing, the attractive officer makes an indelible impression on Antonia's heart. She longs to become a physician like her father, but she knows females are permitted only midwifery, not the study or practice of medicine. Antonia takes all the correspondence courses available, but she must take her final courses in person. So she disguises herself as a male. Years later, one of her Waterloo patients is comatose Captain Lord Robert Quentin, very ill, in danger of losing his leg, and threatened by a nearly unseen evil in the Royal Hospital. Antonia's disguise has worked well but now she has fallen in love with her patient. She can reveal her sex and destroy her potential career or she can forsake romance. Whether medicine and love can both triumph under such circumstances is the story of "Antonia's Daring Deception."

Meet the Author

Jamie Richards is a retired professor from a moderately sized university who spent thirty-four years teaching about communism and other forms of political philosophy. He wrote six books on these serious topics and when he retired he decided to write fiction.

What kind? He began as a boyhood fan of westerns, then science fiction, and then mysteries. Gradually he grew tired of bodies and detectives and leaned toward stories that had a little romance in them. It was not far to historical romance and just before he retired he became enamored of the Regency period in English history, roughly 1800 to 1825.

Jamie began collecting novels he enjoyed and then after retirement gave him the time, he began to write. He now has 3400 regency novels on his study shelves, and the two novels for Twilight books are his first step in romance publishing. He especially enjoys the extensive research and the travel necessary for historical novels.

He met his wife at an Arthur Murray Dance Studio back in the 1950s and has three children and four grandchildren, all of whom are very special. He enjoys family, traveling, reading, and writing.
