Fueled by Pacific Northwest coffee and inspired by multiple viewings of every British costume drama she can get her hands on, USA Today bestselling author Christy Carlyle writes sensual historical romance set in the Victorian era. She loves heroes who struggle against all odds and heroines who are ahead of their time. A former teacher with a degree in history, she finds there's nothing better than being able to combine her love of the past with a die-hard belief in happy endings.

Amazon  |  Nook  |  Kobo iTunes


I was excited to join the fantastic authors of the Castle Keyvnor series to add my own Regency tale for Enchanted at Christmas.


In A Love for Lady Winter, Lady Winifred Gissing has accepted spinsterhood as her fate. You see, she sees ghosts, and being different has often meant she’s been rejected. So she’s content to keep her secrets to herself....

“The man’s hands had a terrible unsettling power over her. He didn’t brush or lightly graze her skin. He stroked her, caressed her, as if he wished to give her pleasure rather than take his own.”
Christy Carlyle, One Tempting Proposal

“He was the sort of man she would have noticed in a crowd, even if she hadn't been seeking him, intent on causing him scandal and taking unimaginable liberties with his person.”
Christy Carlyle, One Scandalous Kiss

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Many people lose the small joys in the hope for the big happiness.”
Pearl S. Buck

“If you wish to be a writer, write.”
Epictetus

“The sunlight claps the earth, and the moonbeams kiss the sea: what are all these kissings worth, if thou kiss not me?”
Percy Bysshe Shelley

“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.”
J. B. Priestley

“...if you are writing without zest, without gusto, without love, without fun, you are only half a writer. It means you are so busy keeping one eye on the commercial market, or one ear peeled for the avant-garde coterie, that you are not being yourself. You don't even know yourself. For the first thing a writer should be is-- excited. He should be a thing of fevers and enthusiasms.”
Ray Bradbury
