I discovered historical romance when I was twelve, and took my first stab at writing one a few years later. My prose has improved since then, but my fascination with all things Regency hasn’t changed. When I'm not writing and researching my own stories, or helping other authors write and research theirs over at Rose Does The Research, you can find me reading, watching, cooking, doodling, rambling, and daydreaming in Philadelphia.

FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec.

Thank you so much!! I am indeed planning books for Rafe and James, although I think not for a few years yet (James needs a few years to grow up, and I need to do more research for Rafe). I've got a post up at my blog with a few more details (most of the details I know myself, honestly!) about those books and about further plans for the series, if you're interested:

Listen to the Moon by Rose Lerner
"Well, it's a rare day indeed that a cisgender m/f romance follows a format I like--the hero is in his forties and the heroine is not only 22 but she's a twig like me. Damn. I never really thought about how much reading positive things about tiny-boob" Read more of this review »

“Love wasn’t selfless, and it wasn’t selfish either. Love was equality. It was saying that another person’s self was just as important as yours, and expecting them to feel the same way.”
Rose Lerner, Sweet Disorder

“It’s the worst sort of snobbery to condemn a book without reading it, merely because it’s popular.”
Rose Lerner, Sweet Disorder

“I don’t mean to sound puffed up, but I think—I believe, anyway, that there were boys who might have wanted to court me if I’d given them any encouragement. But I was shy, and none of them seemed to have so great an advantage over books as to be worth the effort.”
Rose Lerner, Sweet Disorder

“I comfort myself with the reflection that your wife will possibly be able to curb your desire--I admit, a natural one for the most part--to exterminate your fellows.”
Georgette Heyer, Devil's Cub

“Many a law, many a commandment have I broken, but my word never.”
Walter Scott

“Love's mysteries in souls do grow,
But yet the body is his book.”
John Donne, The Complete English Poems

“She suddenly saw Wimsey in a new light. She knew him to be intelligent, clean, courteous, wealthy, well-read, amusing and enamored, but he had not so far produced in her that crushing sense of inferiority which leads to prostration and hero-worship. But she now realized that there was, after all, something godlike about him. He could control a horse.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, Have His Carcase

“He had never been interested in stories at any age, and had never quite understood the basic concept. He'd never read a work of fiction all the way through. He did remember, as a small boy, being really annoyed at the depiction of Hickory Dickory Dock in a rag book of nursery rhymes because the clock in the drawing was completely wrong for the period.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
