From the Publisher

Claudy Conn’s Bestselling Regencies take you into a time of romance and passion, humor and intrigue: the time of the Regency, when England’s King George went mad and his beautiful son became Regent.
It was a time where Beau Brummell became arbiter of men’s fashions. Aristocratic men followed his lead and discarded the bright-colored satins and white wigs of the past.
It was a time of hedonism, with bawdy events taking place at Vauxhall. Noblemen played at changing world events at a gentlemen’s club called Whites, and it was a time when an invitation to Almacks was all-important.
Lord Byron flourished during the regency, even when it was rumored that he and his half-sister were lovers.
It was a time of passion, when all rules and social mores were thrown to the winds—a time when such notables as Lady Caroline Lamb, rejected by her lover, Lord Byron, went out into the public’s eye to burn all his letters.
It was a time when ladies dressed as boys, when gentlemen sometimes posed as highwaymen, and when seemingly upstanding aristocrats might also be smugglers and spies.
Regency society often portrayed itself as a comedy of manners, but beneath it all was human nature, ever present, ever laughing, ever sensual, and ever erotic.
Claudy Conn’s Bestselling Regencies contains three full-length novels--Wildfire Kiss, Taffeta and Hotspur, and Oh, Cherry Ripe--that will transport you into those times and into the lives of three unforgettable heroines.

The Best Writing Advice of 2016

2016 was not an easy year to be a writer. Not just because of the constant, concentration-wrecking pull of our devices, their glowing screens beckoning with the promise of fresh horrors. I’ve spoken with many writers, in recent months, who seem to be facing a deeper, starker crisis of purpose since the election of Donald Trump. They’re asking themselves: Is making literature an acceptable pursuit in a world with such urgent, tangible needs? And if so, how should I use my words? It’s a deeply personal line of questioning, and I can’t supply any answers here—I’m still working things out for myse

When Less Plot Is Actually More

AFTER WRITING SEVEN NOVELS AND three works of nonfiction, acclaimed British author Rachel Cusk began to find fiction “fake and embarrassing.” Two years ago, she explained to a British newspaper, “Once you have suffered sufficiently, the idea of making up John and Jane and having them do things together seems utterly ridiculous.” No surprise, then, that her 2014 novel Outline was anything but plot-driven. It was more like a series of observations by a narrator as she traveled to Greece to teach writing. The people she met along the way essentially became the subjects of miniature profiles craf

Crimes of the Heart

S.B. Like many of his novels, Spanish author Javier Marías’ new book, Thus Bad Begins, isn’t exactly a mystery, though it is mysterious. Here, the 65-year-old perennial Nobel favorite tells the story of Juan de Vere, a young man working for a film director, Eduardo Muriel. The older man assigns his apprentice the task of finding out a secret about a longtime friend. Meanwhile, de Vere is intrigued by the cold relationship between Muriel and his depressed wife Beatriz—at some point in their past, she did something unforgivable, also a secret, and de Vere wants to find out what. Marías (The In
