Cadenza by Stella Riley
"Another winner!

Another book in this series with two great romances!

Arabella is rich, but doesn't want to go to London, while her cusin Elizabeth is poor but would like to go to London. While Arabella has a good reason for not wanting to go, Elizabeth" Read more of this review »
Cadenza by Stella Riley
"

Oh how I enjoyed this one. Julian Langham was one of those hero’s that you couldn’t help but fall in love with. He was quiet, shy and ever so kind. His true passion was playing the harpsicord but within a blink of an eye he gave that up to do the rig" Read more of this review »
The Player by Stella Riley
"Superb about to say as always - in terms of discipline and talent a super human character in his way the equal of Rockcliffe. This series is remarkable: original, unexpected, complex characters, involved plots, lots of shade as well as light"

This is a tricky question and I'm not entirely sure I can answer it. However, the book that has always remained dearest to my heart is A Splendid Defiance - the reason being that it was my only chance to tell a true story that hadn't been told before See Full Answer

Stella Riley, Garland of Straw

“Sorry for you? he finished crisply. I thought you knew me better than that.'' "I did ... I do"

"Then why ask it? If you marry me, I'll make no more allowances than I did at Oakleigh less, perhaps. I'm not proposing to be your eyes-though I'd give you mine if I could. But I can't. And unless you love me, I've nothing at all to offer. For the simple fact is that it's I who need you and not the other way about.But only," he repeated, "if you love me. I don't think I can settle for less.”
Stella Riley, The Parfit Knight
