Find happiness with the soaring eagle in the Place of the Winds. Beware the dark sun.

Lady Blythe Devereux has always loved Roger Debrett, the Earl of Eden, Queen Elizabeth’s soaring eagle. Blythe knows with her druid’s instinct that they are meant to be together. And fate will prove her right, if only she can make Roger see the truth.

Fate deals Roger a cruel blow when he’s wrongly accused of murder. In order to secure his freedom so that he can uncover the truth, Roger is forced to marry Blythe, the beloved daughter of one of England’s most powerful and favored men, Richard Devereux, the Earl of Basildon.

With his heart hardened against love, Roger tries to see Blythe as the young girl he’d known years earlier, but her seductive beauty, warmth, and charm, entice him at every turn. And when an unseen killer stalks them through the halls of Hampton Court Palace, Roger must do more than catch a killer. He must protect his heart’s desire.

Patricia Grasso is the author of eighteen historical romances including the Douglas Series which follows the love stories of the amazing Douglas sisters (Angelica, Samantha and Victoria) in Regency London and the Lords of Stratford Series, Regency historical romances with a fairy-tale twist about the aristocratic families in Stratford-on-Avon. And the Devereux Series, a lush, lavish, and compelling series about the noble Devereux Family in Elizabethan England. (Note: this is a re-release)

Her books have won various awards including the National Readers’ Choice Award, New England Readers’ Choice Award, the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice and KISS Awards as well as the B. Dalton and Bookrack Awards for bestselling first-time author.

A native of Massachusetts, Patricia makes her home in the Boston area. She earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English and, for many years, used her “leisure” time to teach in a public high school.

Vikings and Pirates and Earls, Oh my! by Joanna D’Angelo #historicalromance #amreading

I was chatting with an author the other day (via email) and mentioned that “back in the day”  okay – in the 1980s! Gasp! I would regularly visit several used book stores in town to keep up my “romance novel addiction”. I easily bought about 20 books a month. I also bought new releases but they couldn’t keep up with my voracious appetite for historical romances.

tn-500_bdarnkBack then, it seemed that the publishing houses had a much more “loose” view of the Historical Romance genre – which was my go-to genre for reading. I read so many that I can’t remember the names of the authors and titles of the books (alas). But I do remember that many of them were set in “interesting” locales and eras and countries. One book, featured a blind heroine who was married off to a Viking warrior and the book was set in Sweden I think. Anyway, it was a lovely story. Another book was set in Poland and I can’t remember what era it was,  but the heroine dressed like a boy in order to join the army. It was also a good story and a fun read. After studying A Tale of Two Cities, in high school, I wanted to gobble up books about the French Revolution, but I wanted a HAPPY ENDING, of course!

Love in a Mist 453 x 680Lachesis Publishing has begun to revise and re-release some of Patricia Grasso’s gorgeous Elizabethan romances. I absolutely love the Elizabethan era! Especially when we get to hang out with Queen Elizabeth 1. The first one we released was Love in a Mist about a Welsh princess (who is also a Druid – which leads to all sorts of trouble!) who travels to England to meet her birth father and ends up marrying an Earl. We’ll be following up with My Heart’s Desire which follows the daughter of the hero and heroine of Love in a Mist. Both books feature Patricia’s trademark humour and wonderful heroines.

I know that Regency historicals are hugely popular today and we love to publish them (Check out our Regencies by Patricia Grasso, JoMarie DeGioia and Beverly Adam). But I would also love to see more variety out there again. Historical romances set in different countries and eras. There are so many stories out there, yet to be told – the possibilities are endless. What do you think? Are you a die-hard Regency fan or would you love to read more variety in historical romance?
