Overview

Dear Reader,

There’s a fair chance you’ll love this book!

The Blue Devil, a debut novel, it was a finalist for a Golden Heart award from the Romance Writers of America. Romantic Times Book Club awarded The Blue Devil four stars and pronounced it “unique and refreshing.” The story often appears on reader lists of favorite comedic Regency-set novels. And Melynda Beth Andrews’s work has been hailed by critics as “delightful,” “a rare treat,” and “wickedly entertaining.”

Plus, if you enjoy this story, there's more fun to follow. You’ll be glad to know it’s the first book of a connected series, the unforgettable Regency Matchmaker Series:

The Blue Devil
Miss Grantham’s One True Sin
Lord Logic
The Blackguard’s Bride

The four stories all feature Ophelia Palin, a flamboyant old London matchmaker, who knows everyone’s business better than they do. And a certain piece of fabric passes from story to story, undergoing a surprising transformation each time.

    A Great Read

    What a fun regency romance. I am glad I gave these books a try.
    The four books in this series all contain kisses and thoughts about more intimate things to come, but they do not contain any detailed sex scenes. I found that to be very refreshing.

    Funny and charming like a Regency should be.

    It is getting more difficult to find good old Regency romances these days. This one has ben re issued and I'm glad to have found it this time around. I especially liked the old matchmaker character Ophelia. She comes off as flaky at first but then you realize she's crazy like a fox! Im reading the second one in the series now. (I read the third one first, but it didnt spoil anyting. ) I hope the author keeps writing these. They're fun!
