USA Today Bestselling Author Heather Boyd believes every character she creates deserves their own happily-ever-after—no matter how much trouble she puts them through. With that goal in mind, she writes steamy romances that skirt the boundaries of propriety to keep readers enthralled until the wee hours of the morning. Heather has published over 40 regency romance novels and shorter works full of daring seductions and distinguished rogues. She lives north of Sydney, Australia, with her trio of rogues and pair of four-legged overlords.

He first appeared in An Accidental Affair and returned in An Improper Proposal. However, it is not essential to read either of those books to enjoy The Wedding Affair. The Wedding Affair is a complete stand alone novel. I really hope you enjoy it and congratulations on winning! (less)

I love a good second chance romance and with a minor pet peeve this one did not disappoint. Sinclair, The of Exeter and Kitty were separated many years ago by someone they both loved and trusted. Kitty has returned to town to put an end" Read more of this review »
Heather Boyd added a status update: The edit for His Perfect Bride is back. All good, just a few tweaks here and there. Fav comments from editor about my characters:

1. You redeemed Harry nicely, since he was sort of a jerk in Lord of Sin.
2. And it's rather refreshing to see a heroine with a disability; more true to life. So many Regency heroines are perfect, body-wise.

Really excited to finish this one up. A full blurb being shared from today. :)
