Read an Excerpt
Married by Twelfth Night by Ella Quinn
“Good morning, Markville.” Lady Hawksworth smiled at him. “Euphrosyne, allow me to make you known to the Marquis of Markville. Markville, my sister-in-law, Lady Euphrosyne Trevor.”
As he bowed, he admired her graceful curtsey. “My pleasure.” How old was she? Surely she was out. “Were you not in Town last Season? I am sure we would have met.”
Her cheeks colored slightly, not with shyness, but with barely subdued anger, Markville suspected.
“I should have been out last year, but our father decided none of us needed a Season.”
Well, that was plain speaking. He liked her better for it. “What a pity.” Her eyes flashed for a moment. When she turned toward a white horse, he approached her. “Allow me.”
“Thank you.” Lady Euphrosyne reached up for the saddle, clearly expecting him to cup his hands for her foot. Instead, he clasped her waist and lifted her onto the horse. Eyes wide, she stared at him. Now he had her attention. “That was”—she cleared her throat—“unexpected.”
For reasons he could not understand, Markville wanted more.
He didn’t know how strong her reaction was. Her breathing was steady, and the lace ruff hid any sign of her pulse. Only her eyes and words showed her surprise. Did she have a great deal of countenance, or was she cold? With a father like Somerset, Markville wouldn’t have been surprised at the latter, but there was something in the spark of her eyes that made him think she was anything but made of ice. Not to mention the energy he’d observed earlier.

What a wonderful early holiday treat!
I’ve read three of these four authors numerous times before and the fourth was a delightful new-to-me discovery. All four novellas have a wonderful grasp on the Regency time period. Filled with humor, romance, and just the perfect dash of period angst, they are sure to entertain.
Add to that the yule holiday and everything was darned near perfect.
I spread the reading over four nights and went to bed happily pleased each time. If you like your Regency romance in small bites, this book is for you!
