Meet the Author

Karla Darcy lives with her husband, several tame geckos and an occasional friendly snake on the Treasure Coast on the east side of Florida. She has always felt she lived in the Regency period in a past life. Her early writings were musical comedies and humor columns so it was an easy transition to the romantic and humorous style of Regencies. Lovely dresses, masked balls and witty conversations, which contained saucy double entendres, were the perfect cup of tea for this author.

Karla discovered years ago that you don't have to be a bitch to write a Regency but it helps. Tone is everything in the era of witty repartee. Dialogue has to have that snap that makes Regency conversations sparkle.

    Captures you!

    Really loved this book! Fresh writing style, characters you fall in love with...and a story that just wraps itself around you and won't let go. The last page broke my heart...not because it was a bad ending, but because it was the end! Romance, suspense, and laugh-out-loud moments. This is a must read! Review by CherishD

    MUST READ

    This author has a lively imagination. I was hooked on the first few pages. Easy reading, no seedy scenes to wade through. A little bit of passionate embraces and kisses, but also comical scenes. A gentle, tender story that left you feeling good.
