Meet the Author

I grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. I also love history and generally find the past more fascinating than the future. I have been steeped in Regency writers since I was a teenager. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, I read 'em all! I love writing Regency romances because they are romantic, fun and enable me to create feisty heroines and hunky heroes. I hope you'll enjoy my stories!

    Title:  Dangerous Duke
    Author:  Arabella Sheraton
    Genre: Regency Romance
    Review Rating:Five Stars
    Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs




         The Sixteenth Duke is Wyndlesham, Devlin, is The Dangerous Duke. He is arrogant, self-centered and bullying. He has a mistress, Penelope Vane; that is vicious and underhanded. She plans to trap the Duke into marriage with her.
         Fenella Preston applies for the position of companion to the Dowager Duchess. Her Aunt convinces her to use her name of Preston although her real name is Hawke. Because her father commuted suicide.
         Fenella is beautiful and the Duke is extremely handsome. Every time they are alone the sparks fly but, Fenella is convinced she will only be used by the Duke since her lowly social status would make it impossible fora marriage.
        The other problem is Penelope; who is so jealous, that she tries to hurt her in every way. 
         Fenella wins all of the Dukes servants. Everyone loves Fenella but Fenella is no fool;  despite her naïveté. She must leave and make her way somewhere else.
         The ending made me laugh and cry. It was delightful and I refuse to tell it all. This is a must read for Regency fans.
         The characters are fleshed and so convincing. The plot is very romantic and quite believable. I really enjoyed reading it. I give it Five Stars.
