Beautiful heiress Judith Taverner has her pick of London suitors. But her luck takes a turn for the worst when her hapless brother, Peregrine, becomes the target of a would-be-assassin. To Judith’s great annoyance, their mysterious guardian – the handsome Earl of Worth – seems far more intent on wooing her than saving her brother, but all is not as it seems... When the truth is revealed, Judith will finally discover if the Earl is after her money or her heart. __________________________ ‘Fabulously witty’ Stephen Fry ‘Once you step into her world, you won’t look back’ Katie Fforde

Adam Buck was the quintessential Regency artist. His many portraits of sailors, clergymen, landowners and their families will strike a chord with readers of Jane Austen's novels. Collectors of ceramics and watercolors are familiar with his name and print collectors know the superbly executed color prints based on his compositions. But, surprisingly, this is the first book ever published on his life and work. To those who are familiar with his popular images of mothers and children, it will come as a surprise to know that he was an Irish radical with links to British political activists and that he became involved in one of the most sensational royal scandals of the period. He also passionately admired Greek art and the decorative elegance of Greek vase painting was always in his mind when he composed his prints and watercolors. It is this that makes his work so distinctive. This extensively illustrated book will appeal to many who already know his art but is also sure to delight the many more who don't.

The Historical Romance

Author : Helen Hughes

The Historical Romance explores the ways in which romance authors seek to represent our fantasies of life in the past. Examining how the cut-and-thrust swashbucklers of the 1930s gave way to female-orientated romances, Helen Hughes takes a comprehensive look at how romance authors have dealt with the turbulent question of female independence, and how traditional attitudes towards love, marriage and women's sexuality have been approached in more recent texts. Hughes also charts the ways in which the marketing of romance has developed, with the eventual explosion of the mass market and the blockbusting family sagas of the eighties. The Historical Romance unravels the formulaic and mythical nature of historical romance to provide a fascinating study of this highly popular genre.
