About this author

Anne Barton began swiping romance novels off her mom’s bookshelf as a teenager, so when she had the chance to spend a semester in London—home to her favorite heroes—she packed her bags and promptly fell in love with the city, its history, and its pubs. She dreamed of writing romance, but somehow ended up a software analyst instead.

It's so much fun to write stories set in the Regency period--especially when it comes to balls, gowns, house parties, and soirees. It's an escape for me, and I hope it is for readers too.

So whenever I'm struggling with that aspect, I just try to remember that all romance novels are really about the emotional journeys of two people falling in love--which is a timeless thing. I want readers to feel a connection to characters living in another time and place, and I think emotions--not an overabundance of history--are the key.

Thanks for the great question! --Anne
