Historical Romance

The Bride Trilogy


For years, I had a mental image of a silver-haired girl who flitted through a garden and didn't speak, though I didn't know her story.  Then one day she intersected my vague concept for a story about estranged male twins where one must go to the other for help.  Bingo!  The Wild Child was born.
 
Since I hate to leave a potential hero lonely and alone, that led to a story about the other twin, The China Bride.
 
Lastly came The Bartered Bride.  The heroine was a young girl in the Fallen Angels story Shattered Rainbows, and I'd always wanted to write about her, but I had to wait till she grew up.  The stories are set a few years post-Regency, from the late 1820s to the early 1830s.
