Anne Barton began swiping romance novels off her mom’s bookshelf as a teenager, so when she had the chance to spend a semester in London—home to her favorite heroes—she packed her bags and promptly fell in love with the city, its history, and its pubs. She dreamed of writing romance, but somehow ended up a software analyst instead.

Fortunately, a few years and a few careers later, Anne found her way back to writing the stories she loves and in 2011 won the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart for Regency Historical Romance.

Thanks for reading To All the Rakes! Amelia and Stephen don't appear in When She Was Wicked, so you're really fine to read it as a stand alone. Two characters from the first book make a brief appearance in the novella--they're Amelia's cousins. Happy reading--I hope you enjoy! :)(less)

When the words aren't coming, I try to find the joy in writing. It might not come right away, but it eventually returns!

My advice is to write about anything that matters to you, anything that makes you happy, without worrying what anyone else thinks. Remind yourself that you have something to say, and that no one else can say it quite like you.

Have you read Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird? It's a great book for writing inspiration! I feel for you and wish you lots of luck!

“It was truly amazing what character defects people would tolerate if one had a title, a fortune, and a few interesting scars.”
Anne Barton, Once She Was Tempted

“You said you wanted me to be honest with you,” he said.

“Always. Unless you're about to tell me that I'm kissing incorrectly. That would be beyond humiliating.”
Anne Barton, To All the Rakes I've Loved Before

“She wanted to escape.

He’d thought that they were all getting on reasonably well. His sisters liked the dresses Anabelle made for them. She liked her new spectacles. He liked the way she kissed.”
