Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Determined to see his four brothers safely wed, Penn Warfield sends for a mail-order bride for his brother Adam and ends up falling in love himself with the lovely, enchanting-and pregnant-widow Hannah Ballinger. Williams has created a heartwarming, funny story; peopled it with an engaging cast; and set it on a remote, windswept island off the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Readers who enjoy reading Williams's story might also like to try the novels of Jill Marie Landis and Victoria Pade. [Williams lives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.] Regency romance, sometimes considered the most elite of the romance subgenres, is a romantic comedy of manners set in English upper-class society during the Regency period, 1811-1820; it is patterned after Jane Austen's Regency contemporaries. The style is light, and the emphasis is on language, wit, and period detail. Classic Regencies do not contain explicit sex; those that do are more properly categorized as historicals with a Regency setting. Georgette Heyer set the standard for the modern version. Writers of note in this subgenre include Anne Barbour, Jo Beverley, Mary Balogh, Kate Moore, Barbara Metzger, and Patricia Veryan.
