AND CHRISTMAS PAST:

 

AMAZON

In this lighthearted Christmas tale set in 1906 America, a Society girl and her Highlander bodyguard fall unexpectedly in love.
For American-born Scotswoman Ainsley Birral, the game of marriage is a tricky proposition, one in which there are three strikes against her. Too tall, too old and modestly unconventional, she expects to live out her life as a maiden aunt. Then one autumn morning she opens her Uptown bookshop to discover an unpleasant surprise. Before she can say “skidoo”, she’s embroiled with a Highlander who touches her heart and stirs her senses, and whose size makes her feel – for the first time ever – deliciously small and feminine.
Brendan MacKean is hired to protect a beautiful woman threatened by an elusive killer. For this former Scotland Yard Inspector, it’s a ho-hum, run-of-the-mill task – until he discovers his usual dispassionate demeanor toward his work is thrown off stride by a powerful attraction to his client. Ainsley Birral is the woman of his dreams, but is she out of reach to one whose roots are sunk deep in the back streets of Inverness?
As the busy holiday season approaches with its attendant excitements, joys and festivities, Brendan must keep Ainsley safe while they explore the passionate love building between them – and find a way to bridge the gap between their respective worlds.

Augustus Sinclair has a broken heart. His betrothed has dropped him for his best friend. Former best friend. When he meets Anne Balfour, though, he questions whether he’d ever really been in love with his fiancé. Some of Anne’s reactions to what he considers everyday activities are puzzling, but that doesn’t stop him from falling head over heels for the first time in his life.
Anne Balfour is amazed to be a guest at the Shrewsbury’s, one of Mayfair’s most well-to-do families — even if the circumstances are less than ideal. Still, she can’t help but get caught up in the excitement of society life. Especially when in the company of Augustus Sinclair. He makes her believe in love and romance, even if she is just the dustman’s daughter.

Jenny Crowley has been duped! At her eighteenth birthday celebration her parents announce that instead of having the London Season she’s dreamed of for years, Jenny has been betrothed from birth to Alexander Isley, son of family friends and heir to a title. A distraught Jenny refuses point-blank to marry Alec, and when her aunt offers to whisk her away to a Christmas house party, complete with many eligible young bachelors, Jenny jumps at the chance to enjoy a variety of entertainments, be courted, and perhaps fall in love.
Alec Isley is between a rock and a hard place. He desires a marriage with Jenny no more than she does, but when his family’s dire financial status is revealed, he follows Jenny to the house party in hopes of convincing her to marry him after all. When he discovers who else is courting her there, Alec is frantic to keep her from making a dreadful mistake. Struggling with new-found feelings for his childhood friend, can Alec convince her of his love in time to save her from being ruined under the mistletoe?

Donna Hatch’s New Christmas Release!

IT’S RELEASE DAY for Christmas Secrets, a new Regency Christmas novel by Donna Hatch. It is now available in ebook and print!
A stolen Christmas kiss leaves them bewildered and breathless.

A charming rogue-turned-vicar, Will wants to prove that he left his rakish days behind him, but an accidental kiss changes all his plans. His secret could bring them together…or divide them forever.

Holly has two Christmas wishes this year; finally earn her mother’s approval by gaining the notice of a handsome earl, and learn the identity of the stranger who gave her a heart-shattering kiss…even if that stranger is the resident Christmas ghost.

Note from Donna:
This romantic story of expectations, complex family issues, forgiveness and redemption will leave you laughing, crying, and swooning. Sprinkled liberally with heart-melting kisses, suspense, learning to accept oneself and drawing on one’s inner strength, this is not your ordinary historical romance nor of redeeming the rakes. Fans of Victorian and Regency Eras as well as those seeking clean and wholesome romance with plenty of chemistry will love this story!

Approaching the Holiday Season

The authors of Romancing Yesteryear hope, wherever you live, your autumn is beautiful. To help you enjoy these bright and colorful days, we offer three new releases for the upcoming holiday season.

From October: Cathy & DD MacRae – The Highlander’s Crusader Bride, Book Three in The Hardy Heroines series.

AMAZON

Born in the desert, raised to daring and adventure, Arbela MacLean is not the bride Caelen expected.

Born in the Holy Lands only a few years after the Third Crusade, half-Armenian, half-Scot Arbela MacLean is a true daughter of the desert, beautiful and untamed. Trained to be a warrior to avoid her gentle mother’s fate, Arbela has honed her skills with Turkish bow and arrow, sword and throwing darts—and dreads the day her father choses a man for her to marry.
After more than thirty years in the Holy Land, Donal MacLean, Baron of Batroun, is recalled to Scotland, the last son available to take up leadership of clan MacLean. He brings with him knights, treasure, trade—and a daughter of marriageable age.
Caelen MacKern, known as the Bull of the Highlands, is cynical about women. His first marriage formed an alliance, and he did not grieve when his spoiled, immature bride passed away. He has agreed to marry again—against his better judgement—for the men, means and coin to recover from a devastating pestilence that all but wiped out his clan.
More than a little resentful at finding himself forced to remarry, Caelen’s proposal to Donal MacLean’s headstrong daughter nevertheless piques her interest. Each will receive what they want most from life—the ability to live as they please without interference from a meddling spouse. But their marriage of indifference will soon change to one of passion that neither Arbela nor Caelen could have predicted.

The last thing Hannah Palmer wants to do is flirt with men in a crowded ballroom, but when her sister, the Countess of Tarrington, throws a Masquerade Ball, Hannah can’t say no to the invitation. Taking comfort behind her disguise, she dances with a charming masked gentleman, matching him wit for wit. When the glorious evening culminates in a kiss, and the two remove their masks, Hannah is horrified to discover the man she’s been flirting with all night is her most despised neighbor, the Duke of Suttenberg. No matter how charming the duke was at the ball, and how wonderful the kiss, he is the last man she could ever love.

Katherine Bone Has A New Release Today!

Book Ten of Katherine Bone’s Heart of a Hero series, The Mercenary Pirate is out today. Be sure to grab your copy if you haven’t already preordered!

AMAZON

Wolfgang, one of Lord Wellington’s craftiest spies, is a fighter, an indulgent loner who is cunning and bold enough to go where others do not dare. He hates distractions and complications, especially those involving the fairer sex, and his instincts have always fueled him and kept him on course, mission after mission. That is, until his talents steer him toward a destiny he didn’t know he had and a search for the brother he barely remembers. And when he comes into contact with a brave young woman disguised as a boy, the urge he feels to protect her might just lead him on the biggest adventure of all.

 

Selina’s wedding day did not go as planned. Instead, she was kidnapped by pirates and ransomed for an exorbitant sum. Her diabolical captors didn’t hold up their end of the bargain, however, and kept her imprisoned even after their demands were met. More clever than her kidnappers expected, she managed to escape and disguised herself as a boy. Forced to lie, cheat, and steal in order to stay alive, she loses hope of ever returning to the man she intended to marry. Desperate, she agrees to become a handsome and compassionate sea captain’s cabin boy to gain passage back to Cornwall, but the captain endangers the one thing she cannot afford to lose—her heart.

Determined to atone for his villainy, Oriana distributes the blood money he left behind to widows and orphans living nearby.

Yet one haunted man promises to protect her, and she finds herself taking the greatest risk of all—falling in love.
