About the Author

Multi-published historical romance author, Anne Stenhouse, lives and writes in Edinburgh, Scotland. She shares her house with her husband and dancing partner of over thirty years and enjoys having children and a grandson in fairly close proximity. When not plotting Regency style mayhem, Anne enjoys Scottish country dancing, theatre and the company of good friends. She plays badminton poorly and reads a lot of books.
Praise for Stenhouse’s works:
“This is the first historical romance I’ve read by a native Scottish author, but it won’t be the last. I found the dialogue to be absolutely marvelous because it was clear and concise, and at times witty and sarcastic. Ms. Stenhouse’s excellent descriptive style also enabled me to know exactly what was going on in the minds of the heroine and hero.” 5 stars For Bella’s Betrothal
“Doesn't it give you a thrill to see 'London 1822' at the beginning of a book? You know you're about to be transported back to the elegant Regency era.” 5 stars for Mariah’s Marriage

Sweet and clean read. He needed to marry and when she fell into his arms, literally, he set his betrothal in motion. Very fast paced, but not without a villian to throw a wrench in the wedding plans. 152 pages

Mrs. Stenhouse admits to loving words and this, her first novel, shows just how much. She tends to choose the most archane language, even using the less usual definition of some of her choices. The love of words also shows in the length of her sentences. At times it was possible to skip pages due to the rambling. Our hero takes many unusual, even untoward, actions that show a distinct lack of concern for the heroine's reputation. Lifting her bodily in his arms when she trips? Couldn't he steady her from falling without such very personal contact? He takes her alone to the dark garden at a gathering knowing the consequences to her reputation. Is this the way to secure her agreement to marry him? Is this the way to show her his deep love? For a man raised as a gentleman, even the younger son, such behavior does him no credit. As loathsome as the villian is he is honest in his intentions. Hopefully, when Mrs. Stenhouse writes her next novel she will be less verbose and have a stronger plot. Three stars because it had promise and was clean. Thank you, Mrs. Stenhouse.
