Swoon Worthy Spotlight - March

Welcome to Swoony Worthy Spotlights, hosted by Bookworm NationKatie's Clean Book Collection and KJ's Book Nook! Swoon Worthy Spotlights features 1-3 of our favorite books that we have read during the month. We will share the cover(s), our review(s) and a link to each other's post so you can check out which books we have all chosen!

I only read one book in March, can that be right? I didn't realize it until I went to write this post, but it turns out I was only able to read one book. At least it was totally an awesome and amazing book! March was a crazy busy month, with sick kiddos and life going on I just didn't have much time to read. I *think* things are getting back to normal and hopefully April I can make up all the reading time I missed and catch up on my massive TBR pile. Anyway, the book I read in March is one I would have totally done a spotlight for no matter what...

Serendipity, Book One
Regency Romance

Author's Corner - Valerie King

Welcome to Author's Corner hosted by Bookworm NationKatie's Clean Book Collection and KJ's Book Nook! Once a month we will feature either a favorite author or new to us author. We will share the author's bio, one of our favorite books of theirs and a review. Each of us will be featuring a different author each month so there will also be links to each of our posts.

For this month's Author's Corner I am going to choose...

I was tempted to just copy her Bio from her website, it's a fun read and you get to know her a little better. You can read it hereIn 2005, Romantic Times gave her a Career Achievement award in Regency Romance. Currently, she’s bringing her extensive Sweet Regency backlist to the public and working on Regency Historicals and Sweet Regency Novellas.  She also writes under a pen-name Caris Roane (which I don't think are clean reads, but I could be wrong). 

I really got into Regencies while living in Okinawa. I discovered all these wonderful books written in the 90s. I remember searching all over Goodreads and Amazon and making a list of authors to try. Ms. King was one of them. I wish I could remember which book I read of hers first, but I do remember really enjoying her writing style and thought she was a great storyteller.  I believe she's written over 50 Regencies, I know she was in the process of re-publishing them as ebooks. I'm hoping she continues to do so, but if not I'll be buying up her out of print books asap. Besides, don't you just love these old covers! I think they're charming. My Lady Vixen, was a fun read. I really enjoyed it, great banter and clean swoony romance with a unique plot and likable characters. 

About the book

Angry at Lord Stoneleigh for jilting her two friends, Charlotte Amberley becomes involved in a plot to ruin him, but when she finds herself falling in love with him, she regrets her role in his imminent downfall.
