About Megan Derr

Megan grew up a military brat and traveled extensively with her family. She is now firmly settled in Ohio, with two roommates and their five cats. She has always been book obsessed, and writing obsessed since she first gave it a whirl in college. Romance and fantasy are her primary obsessions, but she’s game to write just about anything and enjoys a challenge. She is a sucker for stories of enemies becoming lovers. When not writing, Megan is drinking too much coffee, reading still more books, and harassing family and friends, or otherwise doing whatever possible to avoid editing.

Review by: Bethany Ebert on May 23, 2016 :
I liked the Regency setting, but the dialogue was a real snooze. I didn't see any chemistry between the two male characters, and I found the younger two squabbling about nothing to be repetitive. I wish the author had bothered to explain what exactly the fighting was all about. As it was, it read more like a constant background noise, with no real meaning as to what or why. I understand the Regency setting was different, but the exoticizing of the one male lead really got on my nerves. Not only did the author use the term "Oriental", not bothering to describe which specific country and instead lumping all of them together, but the character was also referred to as "your Dragon". What was supposed to have been a cutesy nickname just ended up sounding racist and patronizing.

I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I'm impressed by the storytelling here. Excellent writing, well-rounded characters with a well-made world to move around in. There's a reason I am working my way through all of Megan Derr's stories: they're good.

The read is a nice idle pace, with a believable historical plot. The two main characters were genuine and stout. Overall the short story experience was delightful and sweet, as there is no explicit sex. Still even so, the read is worth the time and should be shared.

This is a Regency Romance, that means somewhat flowery speech and writing as well as p[lot twists and turns. Ms. Derr pulls this off rather nicely. I happen to be a fan of regency romance and this is one of my favorites.

There are so many problems with this book, but they all revoolve around the fact that the author just doesn't know how to write. When was the last time you ever heard anyone speak like this? "Leaving off his sulking thoughts, he gave himself over to studying an exquisite fan made of jade and silk, a delicate watercolor of lotuses painted upon it." How could the author have said this? "
