BEAUTIFUL HISTORICAL ROMANCE!

Forever Winter is captivating. Who doesn't love a wedding in Winter?



About Forever Winter:
Just imagine the perfect wedding… and then everything that could go wrong.

A Christmas Eve snowstorm barrels through the English countryside and wreaks havoc on the residents of Lorican Manor. Susanna Lorican and her fiance, Viscount Camden Beckinworth, had planned the perfect wedding but with the dress and several guests delayed, the reverend injured, and after a confrontation with Susanna’s repulsive brother-in-law, reaching the altar seemed impossible. Despite one setback after another, Susanna and Camden vowed to marry, their love too great to deny any longer...


 

 
About Amber Daulton:
My mind is a wonderland of romance and adventure, laughter and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he's down. I read, write and enjoy contemporary, paranormal and historical novels alike. I just can't get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Writing takes up most of my time, aside from my tedious day job in the retail industry, and I probably wouldn't be too sane without my computer and notebooks. After all, what's a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and it's hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.

When I'm not busy toiling away on my computer, I acknowledge the fact that I do, indeed, live in reality and then I remember that I'm married with five adorable kitties. *Wink wink* My wonderful, punk-rocker husband supports me in my career (cough cough--obsession) and always lends a pair of eyes to my manuscripts.

The Types of Regency Romance

by Amber Daulton
 
Regency-period romance novels are my go-to books when I need a good love story. The colorful scenery and elaborate clothes, the proper mannerisms and customs of the Ton, and the beauty of early nineteenth century England draws me into an intriguing world.

My debut novella, Forever Winter, resembles both archetypes of Regency romance: Traditional Regency and Regency Historical.

In Traditional Regency, we typically see the hero as a sexy, womanizing cad who marries out of obligation or who downright refuses to marry unless he can gain something from the union. The heroine is usually a dutiful but intelligent woman who marriage for security or out of responsibility. Occasionally, the heroine marries for love but the hero usually doesn’t return the sentiment for the first half or so of the book. Subtle humor, clever dialogue and intricate details, with soft kissing and light affection, are the focal points of the novels.

Regency Historical involves the same plot devices but delves deeper with stronger emotional aspects, darker subplots and, of course, sex. In these books, the hero and heroine discovers each other’s passions and motivations before they find their HEA. As they travel the long, turbulent road of deceit and betrayal, they usually fall madly in love unwillingly or by accident, and the only way to achieve redemption is by embracing their earth-shattering love.

In Forever Winter, we meet Susanna Lorican and Camden Beckinworth on their wedding day. They plan to marry on Christmas Eve at her father’s estate in the country after six months of a proper engagement and another six months of courtship. While they have known each other since childhood, there is an eight year difference in their ages. Camden spent his adulthood frolicking as a carefree rake until his parents’ deaths forced him to take over the family business. Susanna, even though she knows what Society expects of her, rejects potential suitors in hopes that the man she secretly adores will come to his senses. She also knows that she cannot continue down this independent road for much longer. She must accept facts and take appropriate measures to secure her future.

Once Camden realizes Susanna has grown into a lovely woman—and just in time too!—he falls head over heels in love with her.  They share similar goals, ideals and what they want out of life. He sees her as his equal. Their union is also very profitable. Not only are they in love, he provides financial security as a successful owner of a cotton mill and, since she has previous experience managing her father’s vast farm, she tends to his bookkeeping and monetary records.

This sweet romance focuses on the couple’s interaction with her family and the world around them, not their relationship in the bedroom.

As with most romance novels, historical or not, the idea of love and a ‘happily ever after’ enthralls readers on a profound level and churns their heart with emotion. Regency stories of either archetype define a beautiful, charming world. In a bygone era of modesty and passion, readers experience a potent combination of emotions, whether off the page or on, or in their own lives.
