Please join me in congratulating Waverly Fitzgerald on the publication of four Victorian historical romance novels! I had the pleasure of working with Waverly on the cover designs. Here are the book descriptions:
She prevails upon her fast cousin, Lynton, to introduce her to the “pretty horsebreakers,” the courtesans who flaunt their wares in Hyde Park every afternoon. Unexpected complications ensue as Lynton takes Thalia to the notorious Cremorne Gardens and introduces her to the eccentric Lady Guenevere Shallot, a courtesan who changes her name to suit the décor of her home in St. John’s Wood.
Thalia’s curiosity gets her into all sorts of trouble, but her courage, her generous heart and her new friends help her escape from a desperate situation, discover her true identity and find true love.
But nothing can stop Arabella from going after what she wants. Every action she takes plunges her deeper into trouble and leads inexorably to the terrible truth about her mother’s fall from grace. Fortunately Arabella is surrounded by those who love her, even at their own expense, and help her to find peace and lasting love.
A delightful high-spirited Victorian romp, capturing the spirit and conventions of a colorful, aristocratic set, during the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Cecily Hawthorne, desperate to escape from a dreadful position as a nursery governess, agrees to model for prominent Society portrait painter, Devin Sheridan, despite the opprobrium attached to that occupation. Cecily becomes Devin’s Pandora, his vision of a temptress, and he must paint her if only to shock London society with a tantalizing portrait that makes her the envy of the ladies and the talk of the town.
Set in the colorful salons of Kensington and studios of Chelsea, and graced with eccentric characters , both real (Whistler and Wilder) and imagined (Veracity Flutterby, Chester Thrush), this is a charming romp through the artistic and aesthetic circles of Victorian London.
All four titles are available in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add them to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Waverly's website for the scoop on all of her books and her writing workshops.
