I was born in Leicester, England, and lived in our cobbler’s shop with my parents and sister. It was an old house and most definitely haunted, but I didn’t find out until I left that my great uncle had hung himself in the living room! But I think our ghost might have been older than that. It was built on the site of the old Roman cemetery, and the land had been constantly inhabited, being in the centre of town. Then, when the council bought the house from us to build a road, my grandfather retired and my father went and worked for the Post Office. My mother was a sample machinist; that is, she worked with designers on the prototypes (models or samples) of garments. So I was very well dressed! We bought a relatively modern house in the count ...more

However, I would travel to mid-Georgian England (surprise!). I fell in love with the era before I wrote any books set then. I wrote the books because I fell for the era, not the other way around.(less)

I’ve been working on a new project, but it’s not romance, or not entirely romance, so that’s a new name. And I’m working on some proposals for my current publishers. Sadly, that doesn’t include Kensington. Although I don’t plan to reclaim the books I have there just yet, I won’t be active with them. Various reasons, but you do run your course with a publisher, or so I’ve found. I loved being ther

I started to read this series three times. Three times I got the book out of the library, and twice I took it back after reading a couple of chapters. I couldn't get into it, couldn't get interested.
Then I gave it one more go. And the world opened.

“Never judge yourself by the narrow
standards of others. What we do together here is our
business, nobody else's. Never, never doubt what we have
just done is anything but love. Never let yourself be restricted
by thoughts of what society would have you do, what it would
accept or condemn. Please promise me that.”
Lynne Connolly, Venice

“Connie threw back her head, opened her mouth and cried to the heavens, as every sensation built and exploded inside her, fireworks and waterfalls, starburst and throbbing heat.”
Lynne Connolly, Rogue in Red Velvet

“Impossible. But you know I'm there in spirit. In the middle of a ball, at the theater or even at court I'm here, inside you. Where I belong.”
