Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times Bestselling Author

"Karla Darcy weaves one fabulous Regency Romance after another. Wise, witty and wonderful. Move over Jane for another Darcy you will love!"
Mary Alice Monroe, NY Times author of Beach House Memories

About 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.

The Scandalous Ward His passion filled novella that will make the reader completely miss the day while reading. Young Leslie has never had a home filled with love, so when she gets the opportunity to stay in the home of Lord Paxton, she jumps at the chance. There is just one problem. The duke thanks she is a boy. Leslie hides her true gender until she is revealed. In order to escape a scandal the Duke forces Leslie to marry him. Now the fun begins. The two must fight against jealousy, rumors, and the rigors of proper society in order to find happiness in each other’s arms. The reader will not be able to put the book down until, she finds out what happens to these to hard-headed lovers.

Lacking enough sexual tention ,romance and intimacy between the characters.

I have to say I have enjoyed the book! One of the main reasons is it was a clean book. You have just the right amount of sexual tension between the main characters and imagination to fill in the blanks.
