Meet the Author

I have worked as an attorney, winery tasting-room manager, and retail business owner, but nothing beats the thrill of writing humorously-ever-after romances.

I reside in New England, although I fantasize about spending the rest of my days in a tropical locale, wearing flip flops year-round, or in Regency London, scandalizing the ton.

I can usually be found on Twitter talking about writing and coffee, and on Facebook talking about coffee and writing.

    Exciting Story

    I don’t normally read historical romance… heck, historical anything. I can probably count the number of books on two hands. I’m a modern girl, I like the ease of modern conveniences. But like I’ve said, occasionally I like to try to broaden my horizons. Enter Lord Midnight.

    This book was really exciting for me from beginning to end! It caught me by surprise, I wasn’t expecting characters that I cared for, beautiful scenery, and drama to rival any other. There were words and terms that I don’t understand, since I don’t read this genre. But whatever I guessed at what they were was probably not too far off. I didn’t find it difficult to follow at all. The storyline moves swiftly and I found myself excited each time I could pick up my kindle and resume reading.

    “I, too, have a need to be more singular than the other ladies of my acquaintance, “ she said.
    “That requires no effort, Angel. I can assure you of that, “ he said with utter sincerity. He looked into her eyes once more, and nearly cried out at the trust shining back at him.

    Ok, the goods. Gabriel. Whew! He was perfect! He has a lot of tragedy in his past, and he is out for revenge. He is dashing and sexy, intelligent and romantic. I think I’ve developed a thing for highwaymen! He is a bit hardened by the past, but inside still beats the heart of a lion. And once he meets his lioness, well, all bets are off. He was everything I hope for in a leading man. He definitely made me want to swoon!

    And then we have Marisa. She has the unfortunate luck of being a woman in a time when women don’t really get to make their own choices regarding almost everything. She is about to be married to Lord Westbrook, a man who appears to be wonderful but you definitely know something slimey is below the surface. But she is not going to just go into a marriage without a fight. She is intelligent and cunning, and for every plan that gets destroyed to free her from her invisible cage, she devises a new plan. I really liked Marisa quite a bit. Marisa is in truth nothing like she appears. The times and circumstances dictate that she should be demure and obedient. But in actuality she is strong, intelligent, and surprisingly independent.

    As the story went on, and Marisa and Gabriel got to know each other a bit more I really found myself caring for them more as a pair. I wanted so badly for them to be together. And of course I can’t blow the secret, but I can say that when these two get together sparks fly!

    Lord Westbrook… he certainly is a vile man. He is more than just two-faced, he has multiple faces. I didn’t like him, and he made my skin crawl. In my mind he is a terrific villain, because at no point did I ever feel like “oh, I like the bad boy!”. Oh no, he garnered no sympathy or warm feelings from me. Every word and every move he made I felt like I had to watch for ulterior motives and sneaky behavior.

    This is definitely a story I would recommend to my friends, whether or not they read the genre. Surprises and twists were plentiful. Some of the events made me cheer! I am definitely impressed and a new fan of the author, Donna Cummings.

    Great Romance!

    First book by this author and won't be the last. Love her writing style! Sex was just right, not vulgar. A lot of suspense and just when I thought I knew where story was headed, the author surprised me. When will B&N release Lord Rakehells Love? Ljb

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    This is an interesting Regency romance. Cummings’ writing is very good and she has presented a solid story, obviously taking care to convey a feeling for the period—and that is why I’m giving this book 4 stars. However, the middle of the story dragged for me. There just wasn’t that much happening, and after a while, the scenes in her bedroom with Gabriel began to feel repetitive.




    The love scenes were also a bit strung out, though some might like that. Most of the story takes place in the Westbrook estate, at night or in Marisa’s bedroom. Except for the “extras,” the characters are few: the hero, heroine, her brother, the villain and two members of the hero’s band of thieves. Though he’s had years to plot how he can regain his lands and title his uncle stole from him, Gabriel seems to have no strategy. Cummings can write action and there was a pretty good action scene when Lord Westbrook tried to re-capture Marisa by force.




    At times, Marisa seems overly naïve and at others a bit too experienced in physical love. I had a hard time getting a fix on her. The hero, Gabriel, is an honorable sort who is so polite and caring of Marisa, he seems a bit unreal. One would have thought the life he’d been forced to live would have hardened him more, but that is not the case.




    I expect to see more novels from this worthy author but I’d like to see a more complex plot with more historical elements. This one was entertaining but could have been more suspenseful and more intriguing given her writing ability.
