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.

This is the first book I have read in which the author herself seems to dislike the heroine.

I first found Cari Hislop on line and became a member after reading a chapter of this book. Now that she has published it I had to get a copy.

I loved this book. Cari's style is very tongue in cheek, totally insane. The heroine is a trod upon frump with a mop of red hair and the hero is a sadly put upon Welshman with strong romantic tendencies. How they find true love and the meanies are routed is a long slide into hysterical laughter set loosely in a Regency Romance setting.
