Loving our Soldiers throughout History

In romance, we love our heroes, don't we? The men and women who are passionate about something—usually home and family but sometimes something even more altruistic—have to be respected and admired. Think crusaders and knights, William Wallace, the Duke of Wellington, and our modern day Navy Seals. Romance is filled with soldiers (and sailors)!

2015 is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, and to commemorate the event, a group of Regency romance authors banded together to write novellas with a Waterloo theme. Beaux, Ballrooms and Battles will release on April 1, no foolin'!

For Readers who enjoy a bit of history with their Romance…

A historic confrontation

Beaux, Ballrooms, and Battles is a celebration of the bicentenary of the showdown between Wellington’s “Infamous Army” and Napoleon’s Grande Armée. Wellington’s Allied Army consisted of a hastily organized mélange of inexperienced men from several countries who didn’t even speak the same language.

A backdrop of war

While life in Regency England continued much as it had been, the war with Napoleon was a constant source of preoccupation as young men who eagerly set off to become heroes in battle sometimes returned with life-changing injuries or worse, didn’t return at all.

Nine stories of love tested by the trials of war

A collection of sweet Regency stories of courage, hope, and the miracle of love surviving in uncertain times, brought to you by nine distinguished historical romance authors.
