**If you were looking for the John Dryden "sequel" to Royal Renegade, search for Poetic Justice. (Spoiler: John meets his match.)
**If you'd like to read about how sometimes it takes a village to make a match, search for Charity Begins at Home.
**If you were looking for another romance from the early Regency period, check out The Reluctant Lady.
**If you like sweet stories, you might like my short Valentine's novella, The Wilder Heart.
**If you were hoping for something shorter or spicier, check out my pennamed (Cesca Ross) erotic short story The Gift by Cesca Ross. But be warned, it's more graphic than the usual Regency story!
**If you were looking for my husband's books about Nepal, search for Light in the Mountains by Jeff Rasley. (Yes, two writers in the same family. Moodiness galore!)
