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
Delicious Georgian mystery with excellent cast of characters, period details and just enough twist to keep the reader guessing until very close to the end.
Plus a totally hot hero...brainy and possessed of all his own hair.

Off to read the next book, Deadly Affair. You know the drill, go grab your own copy, these are worth buying!

A five star page turner! LOVED Alec the amateur sleuth. Nice twists to the mystery and the historical setting felt like I was there. It ended all too soon.
