Hi! I’m Mary Kingswood, author of traditional Regency romances. Keep up with new releases and special deals by signing up for my mailing list from the Sign up! tab, above.
NEW SERIES: The brand new Mercer’s House series will be coming along later this year, starting with a FREE prequel novella for all my mailing list subscribers in May, and book 1 (pictured) of the series in June. The series follows the fortunes of the Fletcher family, grown vastly wealthy in the north of England and now seeking to move up in the world by becoming landed gentry. Their ultimate goal is to marry the beauty of the family into the nobility, but they find it isn’t quite as simple as they’d hoped to leave behind their roots in trade. No murders or other mysteries in this series, so you won’t see much of Captain Edgerton and pals, but there will be appearances by other familiar characters, such as the Marford family (Lord Carrbridge and his brothers).
EXCITING NEWS! I was a finalist in Amazon’s KDP Storyteller UK competition for 2021, which is a somewhat amazing honour. The book is Stranger at the Villa, and it was one of five books chosen. The winner (Rachel McLean – well done, Rachel!) was chosen by the judges (after reading all five books) on October 21st in London. You can see the other finalists and find out more here.
NEW COLLECTION: For those of you looking for a bargain, you can now buy the first three books of the Silver Linings Mysteries series in one handy ebook, at the low price of $9.99, or equivalent. The collection is also available free to subscribers of Kindle Unlimited.
NEW AUDIOBOOKS: The first three books of the Strangers series are now available on audiobook from Audible, as well as all four of my completed series. You can also buy at lower cost from AUTHORS DIRECT. Click here for more details.
NEW NOVELLA: a brand new FREE novella specially for all fans of the inimitable Captain Edgerton. The Captain and the Country Cousin is set at the home of the Willerton-Forbes family, where lives Miss Lucinda Willerton-Forbes. At a big family celebration, a mysterious suitor leaves romantic gifts on her pillow every night. Who can it be? And why does he not speak out? The story is my gift to all my mailing list subscribers. Sign up to read it.
A fun Facebook group for fans of traditional Regency romance! I’ve got together with several other authors of Regency romances to create a salon for Regency fans to meet. We’ll be sharing our new releases, teasers, giveaways, sales, and other delightful treats, and (naturally) talking about our favourite Regency reads. All my new friends write (and read) the same style of Regency that I write – “Sizzle in the drawing room, not the bedroom.”
If you’re a Facebook user and you’d like to join us, you’ll receive a very warm welcome to Lady Catherine’s Salon from me and all my new friends. Come along and say hello! Click here to join.
