Her historical romances published by Avon include the popular Burgundy Club series, about Regency book collectors, and The Wild Quartet.

"Since Goodreads is for readers, I don't interact about reviews here (though I do appreciate them, positive or otherwise). If you have any questions or comments about my books or characters, I'd love to hear them through the contact form on my website, or on my Facebook page."

Miranda Neville isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

“My darling love, I think you have a fundamental misconception about what it means to be a great dandy. I have better taste than anyone else so I don't care what anyone else thinks about anything. I am right and they are wrong.”
Miranda Neville, The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton

“You have an astonishing ability to deliver insults in the most normal tone of voice. Do you find that makes you popular among your acquaintance?”
Miranda Neville, Christmas in Duke Street

“You love Robert, not me. You don’t love Lord Stuffy, so I tried to be like Robert.”
The sweet idiot! She felt like weeping again. She began to protest, but he cut her off.
“I don’t drink and I don’t gamble and I don’t have a mistress. I’m dull. You told me so, the first time we met. So I tried to change.” He frowned. “Not the mistress. I’ll never do that.”
“Good,” she whispered.
“I’m trying to be like Robert, but I’m no good at it. I drank wine. And brandy, lots of it. I didn’t like it and it made me sick. I played hazard and I lost.” He looked momentarily cheerful and her heart sank. “But I didn’t like that either. If I was a real man like Mr. Fox, or Robert, I’d have lost thousands.”
The sadder he looked, the more her heart ached, a happy ache.
“I failed you, Caro. I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I’ll always be Lord Stuffy,” he said, and closed his tortured, bloodshot eyes.”
Miranda Neville, The Importance of Being Wicked
