Set in 1821 this charming period romance has a fairytale feel to it. Sir Nathan Bancroft is a man whom others turn to when there is a mystery to be solved or a problem that needs fixing.

Lady in Pearls is a lovely and short tale with romance, intrigue, and most importantly, love. It is fast-paced and thoroughly amusing, with interesting multi-dimensional characters and a plot that never ceases to engage the readers. For a novella to break out of the many molds of Regency romance is surprising, and even more so when it's well done to a high degree.

Sir Nathan Bancroft likes to solve mysteries, and when he is hired by Beatrice Phillips to discover w

I can't add much to what has already been written. But I will say that Elizabeth Cole really 'drew me in' with her vivid descriptions and wonderful prose.

It's a novella, so I accept it is short, but it would not have been harmed in any way to be longer.

I was born a long time after 1821, but the descriptions are so vivid I felt I was there. You know the holodeck adventures in Star Trek? It's like you could create the perfect regency setting, and it would look like the characters fit into the worl
Fun, quick, clean Regency romance!! So hard to find these days...
I liked parts of the story, particularly the ending... but overall it was not very engaging.
Short story. Quick regency romance. MOSTLY clean though hinted at things I'd have preferred not be hinted at, i.e., "His dreams were unusually vivid, however, and required him to wash with extra cold water upon waking." It also had some pretty passionate kisses. I liked the story although the conclusion wasn't completely believable.

Full disclosure: I edited this novella.

This is a sweet romantic story with intelligent characters whose connection goes well beyond the physical. Their banter is amusing and the pace of the story is relatively quick. The secret isn't drawn out artificially, which is something I really appreciate.

She can be found hanging around libraries and archives, or curled in a corner reading, cat on lap. She believes in love at first sight. Then again, she also believes that mac 'n' cheese is a healthy breakfast, so don't trust her judgment on everything.
