About Lucinda Brant

New to my novels?
I write Georgian historical romance and crimance—crime with lashings of romance. All my books are set in the 18th Century, spanning 1740 to early 1780s England, with occasional crossings to the France of Louis XV.

Are they for you?
f you love BBC Classic Drama, Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, 18th Century history, or romances with plenty of wit and adventure then give my books a try. You'll find a world of determined heroines and heroes, an eccentric character or two, and a weave of subplots to keep things interesting. They don't conform to genre formulas and have been described as “a throwback to the Golden Age of romance, but with a modern voice” and “heart wrenching drama with a happily ever after”. Historical detail is important to me but above all I want you to be entertained.

Definitely not Georgette Heyer's standard of writing. Perhaps set in the same time period, disappointing.

Not a fan of the romance genre generally, but couldn't put this one down despite wanting to slap both the main characters. Beautifully crafted and extraordinarily well researched escapism!! Well done, Ms Brant.

An interesting historical romance, in an interesting setting. The book is dominated by dialogue rather than description with some action at points. The motivation of the villains has layers to it that reveal themselves as the book progresses.

This is a quaint little romance novel, it took me a while to get comfortable with all the dif. characters with french titles and names. That said it was a pleasant read.

Historical Romance at its best! Reminded me of a classic swashbuckler movie with a nasty villain you want to boo at every time he appears, an arrogant hero who doesn't suffer fools, and a happy-go-lucky heroine who brightens everyone's day. I've read it twice already and will read again (after I read the sequel!) Great entertainment!

A GREAT read. I could hardly put it down. Kept thinking one more page. Thoroughly enjoyed. Can't wait to read the sequel 'Midnight Marriage.'
