About the Author

I’m an American married to an adorable English Goblin who makes me laugh every day. I’m an artist with a degree in fashion design, but I’ve always been a story teller. Stories are everywhere; in every scent, every glimpse out of the corner of the eye. The most magical moments of my life have been born of ‘what if?’. I’ve been making up stories as long as I can remember, but I was ten before I 'wrote' my first story. It was a romance - the young girl’s parents are killed by a plane falling on their house so of course she moves to England. Don’t ask me where she got the money or the passport! I knew I wanted to grow up to be an author. All my artistic talents converge on my favorite subject: people. I find both individuals and general humanity endlessly fascinating. My genre: Regency romances (historical romances set in late Georgian England) Rated: PG13 (PG13 as in 1985) Style: Each of my stories tend to have their own humor depending on the character's personalities, but they always make me laugh. My plots are character driven and my stories evolve with the characters. Other than the hero and heroine somehow ending up together at the end, I never know what will really happen in the story until it happens. Note: After much deliberation I decided to use English spelling rather than American English spelling in my stories. This will sadly irritate some people, but the USA is the only country to use American spelling while the rest of the English speaking world uses English spelling. I don't think of my books as a series, but all my characters inhabit the same Regency Universe. Most of the main characters are either related or know of each other so my stories often intertwine. If you ever have any questions about my stories or would like to receive an e-mail to let you know I've finished a book please e-mail me at... cari.hislop@regencyromancenovels.com Happy Reading!

If you can get past the fact that a girl who was living in an attic and eating one bowl of gruel a day with beggars is contemplating leaving her husband in three months if she doesn't fall in love with him. To do what---move back to the attic? I'm all for waiting for true love but hunger sucks. That aside CH doesn't put filters on her characters so they pretty much say what they think. Makes for some funny dialogue. Enjoyable read. Add a star if you like poetry. She quotes the great ones.

A good story but a bit too long at over 700 pages
