Born and raised in Anchorage, M.A. Nichols is a lifelong Alaskan with a love of the outdoors. As a child, she despised reading but through the love and persistence of her mother was taught the error of her ways and has had a deep, abiding relationship with it ever since.

She graduated with a bachelor's degree in landscape management from Brigham Young University and a master's in landscape architecture from Utah State University, neither of which has anything to do with why she became a writer but is a fun little tidbit nonetheless. And no, she doesn't have any idea what type of plant you should put in that shady spot out by your deck. She's not that kind of landscape architect. Stop asking.

The poor girl had a tragic story in The Shameless Flirt (more tragic than the readers know because there were things going on behind the scenes that are really heartbreaking for her that I couldn't reveal at that time), but I always knew she would be getting her own happily ever after eventually. She chose to give in to her parents' pressure, but Sir Duncan is so much older than him and isn't destined to live for very long after their wedding. At which time, Lydia will find someone who does make her very happy. :)

I plan on writing that book sometime soon, and hopefully, it should come out in 2021.(less)

I totally understand the confusion. And it's only going to get more so as I start jumping between the Regency and Victorian era and out of any chronological order. I have no planned end for the series, as each time I write a book, I come up with several more ideas for off-shoot stories.

I am working on putting together family trees to go inside the books, but here's an infographic I posted to Instagram that shows the relations between the books:

I don't know if I can say enough about how interesting this book was. Though rather dense at times (and it took me quite a while to get through the whole thing), it is a detailed look at the lives of the younger sons of the gentry. While mostly focus ...more

I hadn't intended to write this story, but the idea came to me while I was writing "A Stolen Kiss," and I couldn't let it go. So, I dropped the book I'd intended to write (sorry, "Hearts Entwined") and jumped on this one.

It all started with Ruby's st

“He had faced armed frigates and the threat of death countless times, yet none of it compared with the possibility of having Tabby taken from him again.”
M.A. Nichols, A True Gentleman
tags: fear, love

“Anxiety is such a useless sentiment. It does not divert impending disasters nor does it help in preparing for them. And it is by no means an accurate portent of doom for more often than not, it signifies nothing. Anxiety simply stretches out the torment so that one feels it long before the pain strikes and ensures that if those fears prove unfounded, the afflicted person suffers nonetheless.”
M.A. Nichols, The Shameless Flirt

“Our grocer bills are in the rears,” she said.”
M.A. Nichols, The Shameless Flirt

Stephen Colbert, I Am America

“Things usually work out in the end."
"What if they don't?"
