Miranda Davis has loved Regency romances since Mr. Darcy won Elizabeth Bennett’s heart. (Not that Miranda is 200 years old.) Miranda’s mother must take responsibility for her daughter's love of Georgette Heyer.

Her current Austen favorite is Persuasion. It bumped P&P out of the top spot because the author's tart social commentary is completely brilliant.

At various points, she earned degrees from Smith College and Harvard University and worked at everything from scooping ice cream to big time advertising. When she’s not busy with family along the Old Santa Fe Trail, she’s happily dreaming of Regency England or reading about it. Or knitting. Or cooking, with mixed results.

Another important individual contributed to her efforts. Though he

“Rather than fall completely under his spell, she huffed, “I should like to see you submissively fond of your wife. Given your professed opinions, I cannot expect much fondness from you as a husband, can I?”  

“Fondness, yes. Ridiculous, romantic, calf-eyed love, no, you may not,” he confirmed. “But when I am fond, Bess, I am very fond.”
Miranda Davis, The Baron's Betrothal: An On-Again, Off-Again, On-Again Regency Romance

“How long would it take for her sadness to ease? How long must she wait to forget a man who would've been her ideal, were he not who he was? The answer: too long. But wait she must.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“What me worry?”
Mad magazine

“I shall be much obliged to you, cousin, if you will refrain from telling my sisters that she has a face like a horse!’
‘But, Charles, no blame attaches to Miss Wraxton! She cannot help it, and that, I assure you, I have always pointed out to your sisters!’
‘I consider Miss Wraxton’s countenance particularly well-bred!’
‘Yes, indeed, but you have quite misunderstood the matter! I meant a particularly well-bred horse!’
'You mean, as I am perfectly aware, to belittle Miss Wraxton!'
'No, no! I am very fond of horses!' Sophy said earnestly.
Before he could stop himself he found that he was replying to this. 'Selina, who repeated the remark to me, is not fond of horses, however, and she-' He broke off, seeing how absurd it was to argue on such a head.
'I expect she will be, when she has lived in the same house with Miss Wraxton for a month or two,' said Sophy encouragingly.”
Georgette Heyer, The Grand Sophy

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
Oscar Wilde

I thought about reading On Dublin Streets. Urp.

I'm considering Outlander, but it's a time commitment to savor it. I think I'm going to love it.

I might read a caz reco: The Parfit Knight by Stella Riley, 1980's, OOP pbs, now coming out via author as ebooks. Blurb also sounded v. good.

I saw you're reading a v.popular South Dakota author writing CRs with cowboys (Tied up or something, Lorelei Somebody) with gazillions of 4-5 star reviews. Can't wait to hear what you think. These gals are so prolific, I'm astonished and impressed. S. Young (50 Shades of Dublin author), too. Amazing reception. It must be such a thrill for them!

I just got The Rake's Retreat, Nancy Butler in the mail, OOP pb. Also a Mary Balogh Notorious Rake or Lord. It may be the week of the rakes for me...What's next for you after the cowboy CR?

I have a thought @ a CR (slightly satiric) but I want to run it by you via email, not here.

Ditto, there are so many titles by great authors, it's nice to have a few discerning reviewers to cut through the clutter to the really good stuff.

Keri Thanks Miranda for the friend invite! I can't wait to chat books with you.

I appreciate it, saves me all the hunting for your reviews in the books themselves. Take care.
