Welcome to My World of Historical Hilarity!
I'm Linda Banche, and I write witty, sweet/sensual Regency romances with nary a rake or royal in sight. Most contain humor, some fantasy, and occasionally a little paranormal or science fiction.
But comedy is my love, and I've created my own wacky blend of humor and Regency with stories that can elicit reactions from a gentle smile to a belly laugh.
Like many other romance authors, I read romances for years before I wrote my own. Once I tried, I quickly discovered how difficult writing is. Did I stop? No, I'm persistent--that's French for "too stupid to quit".
I live in New England and like aerobics and ducks.
So, laugh along with me on a voyage back to the Regency era. Me and my ducks. Quack.

The heroine is Lady Haley's daughter, the hero the third son of landed gentry. A short story that I felt could be expanded with some interesting historical detail.

This is a cute novella about two people who are trying to hide something from their friends. In Justin's case, it's his unfashionable fondness for the novels of Jane Austin, particularly "Pride and Prejudice." In Clara's case, it's her financial acumen and intelligence. Her favorite book? Also "Pride and Prejudice."
The two young people meet at the subscription library and find that they have more than just the book in common.
One of the things I enjoyed about this book is that it was not just about the life of the ton during the Regency era. Justin works as a bank clerk and Clara is a Miss, not even an Honorable. It was nice to see an author show an interest in the every-day folk of the period.
I found the book charming and entertaining.
