Praise for Alicia Rasley's Classic Regencies
This is a wonderful book, charming, engaging, quirky, wonderful and ultimately satisfying.
This was an amazing book full of detail. Charity was a perfect heroine and a perfect match for Tristan. I found both characters very interesting and I wanted there to be a happy ending. It was very well written and I could not put the book down. Definitely a book to read.

Overview of Story
Competent, compassionate, cautious Charity, the mainstay of her Kentish village: She would make the perfect wife. Everyone says so, including the men who propose marriage to her. But Charity wants to be more than the perfect wife. She wants to be beloved.
Against the backdrop of a village fete, nobleman and artist Tristan Hale must prove to her that he desires her as much as he esteems her, and to win her, he first has to defeat an evil playwright, paint a voracious whale, and seduce her by the midsummer moon.
(I'm re-reading this) by Alicia Rasley. I haven't read it in years. It's a very pleasant change of pace.
Rasley's Regencies have been compared to those of Carla Kelly and Loretta Chase-- elegantly written and with lively plots and characters.

**If you were looking for the story of Captain Lord Tressilian, check out The Reluctant Lady.
**If you like naval heroes, you might like my short sweet Valentine's novella, The Wilder Heart.
**If you were looking for Alicia's Kindle #1 bestselling women's fiction novel, simply search under The Year She Fell.
**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!)
**If you'd like to find out what happens to a man coming home from the Peninsular War and the wife who has waited, search for Allegra's Song (a novella).
Or you could save a bit and buy that novella and the companion by Lynn Kerstan in the boxed set: The Drewe Sisters.
