Bliss Bennet writes smart, edgy novels for readers who love history as much as they love romance.
Despite being born and bred in New England, Bliss finds herself fascinated by the history of that country across the pond, particularly the politically-volatile period known as the English Regency. Though she’s visited Britain several times, Bliss continues to make her home in New England, along with her husband, daughter, and two monstrously fluffy black cats.

Hi, Mary!

Here's a definition of "whuff"from the Oxford English Dictionary:

"Whuff," verb: (intransitive) to make a sound as of a forcible blast of breath or wind; (transitive) to utter with such a sound. Also as (interrogative), imitating such a sound.

It's a little anachronistic for NOT QUITE A MARRIAGE; the OED dates the first print occurrence as 1896, in H. G. Wells' WHEELS OF CHANCE: "He huffed a contemptuous laugh." But I liked it so much that I used it anyways...

Hi, Morgan! Thanks for your note. I'm glad you've enjoyed the Pennington series.

I've been working on a new late-Regency-set historical series for the past two years now, but health and family issues have made the writing process much slower than I would like. I'm finally getting back to focusing on writing full-time this month, and am revisiting and revising the first half of the manuscript for the first book in what I think will be called the UNEXPECTED INHERITANCES series. You'll get a taste for it in my next newsletter (which I see you've just signed up for--thanks!), which I hope to be sending out in the next week or so.

Ackermann’s Fashion Plates January 1817

 


January 1817’s fashion plates focus on French fashions: a full dress made for the Duchess de Berri, and a plate of hats of Parisian design. The Duchess’s court dress features an open robe (of British net!) trimmed with blond lace and adorned with intermingled lilies and roses. The underlying white satin slip features five rows of trimming: two satin twisted rolls; a wide wreath of lilies of plain
