Linore Rose Burkard ( L.R.Burkard) is a serious watcher of period films, a Janeite, and hopeless romantic. An award winning author best known for Inspirational Regency Romance, her first novel (Before the Season Ends) opened the genre for the CBA. Besides historical romance, Linore writes contemporary suspense (The Pulse Effex Series, as L.R. Burkard), contemporary romance (Falling In), and romantic short stories (ie., "Three French Hens"). Linore has a magna cum laude English Lit. degree from CUNY which she earned while taking herself far too seriously. She now resides in Ohio with her husband and family, where she turns her youthful angst into character or humor-driven plots.

This is another Regency series of "sweet and clean" romance. Book 3, Miss Wetherham's Wedding is in the works and I hope to have it out by late December 2020 or January 2021. These are meant to be "Heyeresque" Regencies--(lots of fun). :)
(Older answer) Thank you, Rosie! Yes, I plan on writing more, and have already begun a few. I have two regencies I'm trying to finish and one historical set in the time of Charles II. (Late 1600s). But did you read the sequels to Before the Season Ends? (The House in Grosvenor Square, and, The Country House Courtship?) You'll enjoy them since you liked BTSE. And please join my mailing list so I can keep you updated with my progress on new books. (Join at my website http://www.LinoreBurkard.com)

Thanks again! Pleased to meet you here on GoodReads. :) (less)

Also, they come to know each other for who they really are, unlike many so-called "romances," which are really stories merely of physical attraction more than true love. Loving another person well requires humility and gratitude, so I like the nod to reality in this "happily-ever-after" fairy tale. (less)

Linore Hi Rowena,
LASR just featured me in January. So are you a part of the LASR team?
I do celebrate Easter, thank you, and for me it is the biggest holiday of the year. Christmas is ten times more commercial, but for the Christian, Easter (Resurrection Day)is what it's really all about. Thanks for the note, and I wish you a blessed Easter too!
Warmly,

Linore


Rowena Hi, Linore,
Thank you very much for adding me Rowena Cherry as a friend. May I be the first to wish you a very happy Easter weekend (or whatever is appropriate for whatever you celebrate at this time of year,

I look forward to getting to know you better. We share quite a few favorite authors, especially Heyer.
