Even as she pursued engineering degrees, Vanessa Riley's love of 19th century history yielded a hunger to take as many Western Civilization credits as possible (two classes shy of a minor). Vanessa adores Regency times with its conflicts between Church and State, the clash of the classes, and the sweeping romances. Her mission is to have the world fall in love with powerful Regency heroes and heroines who battle for peace with a flintlock and a prayer.
Vanessa writes from the comfort of her southern porch with a cup of Earl Grey or Cinnamon Spice.

The Bargain Episode I had an interesting story. I like the plot and the characters.
Precious Jewell was the lady's maid of the third Baron Welling's wife. When she was freed by her mistress so that she would take care of her son, she could not refused. How could she deny her dying wish? But after two years, a shocking truth that changed her freedom and a certain handsome baron made sure of that.
The Third Baron Welling was still in regret of what was happening to his wife two years ago. Now, he needed Jewell more than ever to take care of his heir. So he made a difficult offer that she couldn't refuse.
I really love the setting and the era. The rebellion that she put to her master was understandable.
I can't wait for the next episode.
