About Cari Hislop

I’m an American married to an adorable English Goblin who makes me laugh every day. I’m an artist with a degree in fashion design, but I’ve always been a story teller. Stories are everywhere; in every scent, every glimpse out of the corner of the eye. The most magical moments of my life have been born of ‘what if?’.

I’ve been making up stories as long as I can remember, but I was ten before I 'wrote' my first story. It was a romance - the young girl’s parents are killed by a plane falling on their house so of course she moves to England. Don’t ask me where she got the money or the passport!

I knew I wanted to grow up to be an author. All my artistic talents converge on my favorite subject: people. I find both individuals and general humanity endlessly fascinating.

My genre: Regency romances (historical romances set in late Georgian England)

Rated: PG13 (PG13 as in 1985)

Style: Each of my stories tend to have their own humor depending on the character's personalities, but they always make me laugh. My plots are character driven and my stories evolve with the characters. Other than the hero and heroine somehow ending up together at the end, I never know what will really happen in the story until it happens.

Note: After much deliberation I decided to use English spelling rather than American English spelling in my stories. This will sadly irritate some people, but the USA is the only country to use American spelling while the rest of the English speaking world uses English spelling.

I don't think of my books as a series, but all my characters inhabit the same Regency Universe. Most of the main characters are either related or know of each other so my stories often intertwine.

To those who gave this less than a four or five - I send a raspberry. You read the premise, yet still read it. Why find fault?
A story or novel is to enjoy or take you away from this lack-luster life we have. This is a good story, it's a funny story, and it's a dramatic story. Only a couple of times was I befuddled for reasons of word usage, but it did not stop me from reading until midnight and the finish of the book.

Handsome rake Edmund, Lord Warenne, wagers a friend that he cannot get an old maid to decline his marriage proposal ... so off he goes to meet Priscilla Stanley.

Edmund, of course, finds her charming, whilst she finds him detestable for a variety of reasons ... and now Edmund must pursue Priscilla.

The book is marred with punctuation errors, and has so many ridiculous slapstick moments that it was difficult to enjoy the tale. Truly unfortunate, because the premise had so much potential.

Burns Well reviewed on March 12, 2014

This is a wonderful romance story. The whole story seemed very realistic, from the behavior of the characters to the strength and unpredictability of fate. When the characters fall in love, everyone tries to break them apart (including fate itself). But you can never predict how things will turn out in the end. The coin of luck can flip at any time, and you never know when or for how long.

Some of the characters exhibited behavior that seemed very cruel, selfish and narrow-minded. But behind that bewildering behavior was rationale that anyone could relate to.

Cute, dumb fluff. Emphasis on dumb. It's a sweet story, but in desperate need of a professional editor's polish. There were too many typos to overlook. The phrase 'luxurious throbbing' was used to death. It didn't even make sense. It felt more like a description of an event. The hero even said it to the heroine at the end.

I did not like the men in general. Making a wager on a girl's happiness. Two of them insisting she's going to marrying them despite her constant refusals. They were all overly cruel.

I didn't hate the heroine, but I have no idea WHY she loves him and chose him. It seemed he was the best of all options. Not a 'I can't live without you' deal.

I don't recommend it, but I don't say stay away.

This one took me by surprise. Thought it'd be your typical Regency romance, but no. Had quirkiness, good writing, interesting story, but what I liked most about it was it's sense of fun with the storyline and with the development of the characters over the life of the story.

I'm sorry I can't give this book lower than a 1 star. It was truly awful. The ‘Hero’ sobs and whines for the ‘Heroine’. Puh-leese! In the home of the ‘Villain’ no less!

Add to that the incomprehension of simple grammar and spelling, well, it’s a completely horrible book and not worth your time.
