Lenora Bell is a USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of historical romances. She grew up in a small Alaskan town that still has no traffic lights and she blames those long, dark winters for turning her into a lifelong bookworm. She has lived and worked on five continents but can currently be found in an old farmhouse in the Pacific Northwest with her carpenter husband and two tiger-striped rescue kitties. In 2014 she won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award for Best Historical and her first Regency romance was published by Avon Books in 2016.

I love rereading childhood classics and I was reading C&CF one day and I thought to myself--ya know what? This is kind of a romance novel plot! The rich, eccentric magnate who requires an heir.

You know I would so love to give Patrick his own book but my editor and I decided to start a whole new series and jump forward several years. Hopefully someday I can write a novella for Patrick and his son Van so that they can have their happily-ever-after! xo ❤️(less)

“Every time he looked at me I felt like I was standing in a tree-lined avenue, and the branches had interlaced into a canopy above me, surrounding me. It was the kind of green that told the sun what color to be as it filtered through the leaves.” “Oh,”
