I write Regency-set historical romance with a high angst-to-plot ratio. I specialize in hard-headed heroines and good-hearted heroes. So far.

A word about the "reviews" I post here: Please think of them as recommendations rather than reviews. If I like a book, I'll list it here and scrawl a few sentences about why I liked it. I've gone back and forth about whether to use stars (it feels like a sledgehammer approach to something pretty intricate), and at the moment I'm back to using them. Mostly because I'm slow about writing reviews, and there were a lot of books I wanted to go on record as having enjoyed!

Some family business took me to Cincinnati this month, and guess who I saw?

FIONAAAAA!  She’s underwater and my phone camera is pretty lousy, but I promise that murky object is her.

She’s still not on any kind of regular schedule for going outside, so it’s sort of hit-and-miss whether you’ll see her on the day you go. We got lucky.

Did Cecilia write today? Yes. I made some headway...

As the title promises, it's sort of an arch, feminist-aware twist on the Harlequin Presents tropes. It's also a straightforward sweet story about two people trying to make their way in their respective fathers' shadows. I particularly appreciated tha ...more

“Don’t you find that a terribly romantic idea? Love stealing in to overtake two people who’d believe they were merely friends?”
Cecilia Grant, A Woman Entangled

“I love you for your quickness and your brokenness and your sharp edges too.”
Cecilia Grant, A Gentleman Undone

“I've never asked you to give the least considerations to my feelings."

He could picture her holding the word with fingertips at arm's length, like a scullery maid disposing of a dead rat.”
Cecilia Grant, A Gentleman Undone

“If I express an interest in Giotto and yarn bombing, Bach and Lady Gaga, I am well-rounded. But if I read Thomas Mann and Harlequin…I must be slipping.”
Megan Mulry

“Has any one ever pinched into its pilulous smallness the cobweb of pre-matrimonial acquaintanceship?”
George Eliot

“[A writer] must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid; and, teaching himself that, forget it forever, leaving no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed - love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice.”
William Faulkner

“...the hero is a secret agent? Well, who gives a crap about the rest of his case once he has met the heroine. Time for moody angst!”
Sherry Thomas

“Romance is something people make fun of others for caring about, and yet it’s something that’s very natural to care about—it’s a loving connection between people, like family and friendships: it’s a significant emotional choice people make.”
Sarah Rees Brennan
