An award-winning author, she writes fun traditional Regency romances, medieval Arthurian romances, and Regency romances with a touch of magic. MERRY: Sweet Regency romance and slightly hotter paranormal romance, most of which are set during the Regency period, although my last two books, Falling and Falling for a Pirate both in the same series are time-travel and oh-my-goodness fun!
There are so many things to remember How do you insure that modern words, phrases, and attitudes don't slip in? Morning, night, in a writer's cave, on the deck, at the library? How many hours a day or week?
Romantic suspense, contemporary, and fantasy
I had one editor take out over a thousand instances of it! Now I have to make sure I get all of my descriptions in. Ally: Answer these short answer questions: a. Let's get straight to that boxed set The second two books of the award winning Merry Men Quartet, plus a bonus novella! The Merry Marquis Through the beauty of music, brings love and the will to live a life lost.
It is only at the pianoforte with beautiful music flowing from her fingertips that Teresa Seton is happy. New to English society, she feels awkward and unsure of herself. Only the attentions of her handsome neighbor can convince her that she is where she belongs—a stolen kiss proves that he means what he says. Finding a beautiful stranger at his pianoforte strikes a chord within him, bringing back feelings he thought were lost with the passing of his wife.
He is mesmerized by Teresa and her beautiful music, but can he convince her, and himself, that he can live and love again? A Dandy in Disguise Can he lose the disguise John Fotheringay-Phipps has nearly forgotten who he truly is. As the dashing, amusing dandy known to all in society as Fungy, he has hidden himself behind a mask of merriment. But he is reminded that there are pleasures beyond society -- when he finds himself feeling responsible for the innocently lovely and fiercely intellectual Rose, the daughter of a famed archaeologist, and her charming, if socially inept, family.
Rose Grace knows that she cannot gamble with her future. She has suddenly been thrust into the role of mother to her two young sisters, companion to her brilliant, distracted father --and family savior. She needs to do the right thing -- to forget her own desires and quickly find a wealthy husband before the creditors come beating at their door.
Then why is she distracted by the foppishly handsome Fungy, who seems so very irresponsible and pleasure-loving? Surely he's the last person whose advice she should follow!

Ally Shields, Author. Wishing you a wonderful ! Come back soon Happy Holidays! The Merry Men Quartet is a really fun series of Regency romances about four friends and how each find love.
The first book to be re-published will actually be the first book chronologically — An Exotic Heir originally published as Love of My Life. She soon finds herself fascinated by the city — and her guide, the dark and mysterious Julian Ritchie. Julian has always faced discrimination for being only half-English, especially from Lady Renwick. When he meets Cassandra, he sees her as the perfect opportunity to get back at her mother — by making Cassandra fall in love with him.
He soon finds that payback can be painful when you get caught in your own trap. We all have different reasons for loving the Georgian and Regency periods. What are some of yours?
