ANOTHER fabulous book I must tell you about is QUADRILLE by Beth Andrews, due to be released as an e-book by REGENCY READS November 15th, 2019! I have read several of the author’s Regency books. Just love them!
The Regency was an era of rogues, rakes, and rebellious women. Falling
in love was as common—and as challenging—as dancing a quadrille. In
these short stories, four young ladies navigate the intricate steps that
lead them to the altar and to the men of their dreams.
Here are short synopses of the stories in Quadrille:
A Noble Deception: In a bucolic English countryside, a handsome, dashing
nobleman meets and falls for the lovely young daughter of a clergyman.
When he makes her the belle of the local ball, a proposal seems
inevitable. But does she feel the same? Story originally published in
Chapter One magazine.
The Ungrateful Governess: Phillip Hayden is betrothed to Julia
Gollard—whom he doesn’t care for—when he falls in love with the family’s
governess. In an act of fate, he meets a young man whose own heartache
may provide the solution to Phillip’s dilemma. Can he conceive a plan to
get what they both want? Story originally published in Romantic
The Skylark: Adina, a beautiful, self-possessed orphan, raised by her
uncle in the English countryside, goes to London for the season. Her
relative, a countess, introduces her to the crème of eligible bachelors.
Refusing to suffer fools, Adina embarrasses her suitors with her wit
and begins to consider that her destiny might not lie with well-heeled
dukes or handsome rakes. Is her heart in London, or has she carelessly
left it at home?
he Christmas Bride: Lord Telford, a wealthy bachelor, has a surprise
visitor and learns his young niece is in dire straits. To save her, and
claim her as his ward, he must find a bride. Will he sacrifice his
freedom for the safety of a small child? Will he be able to find a bride
in time? Story originally published in A Regency Sampler from Regency
About the Author of Quadrille:
This Beth Andrews is actually NOT female! She is also
not a woman trapped in a man's body. She doesn’t write for Harlequin and
isn't an American. “She” happens to be a male, born and raised in
Nassau, Bahamas, whose real name is Paul Bethel.
Paul has been writing poems and short stories for as long as he can
remember. He adopted the name “Beth Andrews” in the early 1990s, when
his first romance short stories were published in magazines like
“Romantic Interludes.” Little did he know then how many other writers
would publish under the same name!
After winning prizes in several contests sponsored by local chapters of
Romance Writers of America, he decided to seriously pursue book-length
fiction. His first Regency romance novel, “The Marplot Marriage”,
appeared in print in 1999--and disappeared just as quickly, along with
the publisher, Regency Press. In 2004, his second romance novel, “A
Scandalous Secret”, was published by Robert Hale in London, England. Two
more Regency romances for Hale followed: “St. George and the Dragon”
and “Stolen Waters.” After that came two light-hearted cozy mysteries
(also with a Regency setting): “Hidden in the Heart” and “The
Unforgiving Eye.” These have all been released as e-books from Belgrave
House and Regency Reads (and are all readily available on Amazon.com).
Having been a confirmed Janeite from his 20s, Paul wrote a number of
articles for Jane Austen’s Regency World magazine, and finally decided
to update Jane's juvenile story, “Love and Freindship” [that is actually
how Jane Austen spelled “Friendship”!], which is his seventh published
book. It looks as though Large Print and Audio versions will also be
available in the not-too-distant future.
A confirmed technophobe, Paul refuses to become involved in social
media, and has neither a Facebook account nor a webpage! He says if
you’re determined to learn more, you can find some of his posts at the
Hale Books writers’ blog. Otherwise, he is rather elusive, and “in
danger of becoming reclusive!” In any case, if you want to know what
he's like (though he says he can't imagine why anyone would), just read
his books. He is a firm believer that it’s the work that really
matters--not the author. He says this may explain why he is in no danger
of becoming either rich or famous! I’m inclined to disagree about this!
Paul deserves all the accolades he gets.

AND LAST BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST! - I must mention CARNIVAL OF LOVE: A TALE OF A BAHAMIAN FAMILY by Ernestia Fraser. I just loved this book!
About “Carnival of Love: A Tale of a Bahamian Family”:
This is a memoir that explores the meaning of love and family within a
broken home. Set in the Bahamas, the story is told through the eyes of
Maria Helix, one of nine children growing up in a stable and caring
environment. With the sudden and unexpected dissolution of her parents’
marriage, Maria is forced to let go of her idealized past and confront
new realities of loss, displacement, and economic instability.
Through honest depiction, humor and hard-won wisdom, Maria reveals a
complex picture of familial bonds sometimes marked by conflict.
Moreover, her tale proves that love is the most compelling force needed
to piece together what is left of a broken family.
Ernestia Fraser is an author, screenwriter, poet, and
educator, who was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas. She has received a
double B.A. in English and Communication and an M.F.A. in Creative
Writing: Screenwriting. She has earned a number awards and honors in
both poetry and screenwriting.
In 2011, her thesis screenplay, Inside the Fallen Moon,
won 1st prize in the Hollywood Black Film Festival International
Storyteller Competition. Following the success of her script, Ernestia
was awarded a screenwriting fellowship at Writer’s Institute for
Diversity in Los Angeles facilitated by Harrison Reiner, a CBS
Television Story Analyst.
Ernestia also garnered a number of other publications. To date, her
poems have appeared in both Caribbean and international journals, such
as St. Somewhere, Tongues of the Ocean, The Caribbean Writer, Quiddity,
Emerge Literary Journal, Blackberry, POUI: Cave Hill Journal and the
