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.

4.5 Stars
Another pitch perfect Georgian tale with the best wicked villainess since Memoirs of Geisha.
Love how the plot unfolds, each piece coming in from various angles, with just enough drama.

Melodramatic, sinister, with people seeking revenge and odd wills.

The term "Penny Dreadful" comes to mind rather than traditional Georgian or Regency.

The author seems to have little understanding of how businesses were run at that time and seems to have based the entire story on a false assumption.

A rather melodramatic sweet romance set in Georgian England. I can almost hear the audience booing the villainness every time that she appears. Excellent read when you are in the mood for a worthy heroine, very human hero and a notable villainness.

This is my favorite Lucinda Brant historical romance to date. It made me laugh, cry, get angry and then smile at the happy ever after ending, so I guess that is the mark of a good writer. If you love historical romance that is just a bit different then read this. You won't be disappointed.
