Meet Meara at the Historical Romance Retreat!
I do hope you'll join me and forty-five other historical romance authors for a weekend long retreat in Spokane, Washington that celebrates romance, books, and historical authors. This September, the magic happens and I would love for you to attend this special and intimate gathering of readers and authors. Registration is open now, but spaces are limited. Hope to see you there!

For a Limited Time!
Get a FREE copy of If You Kissed Me, an exclusive Farthingale novella.
Lady Evangeline Cameron, granddaughter of the powerful Duke of Lotheil, has spent the last three seasons holding out for love and now despairs of ever finding it. The gentlemen who flock to her are more interested in her wealth and family connections, and the only man she dreams about, George Farthingale, has yet to show her any romantic interest. But Evie is ever hopeful that her dreams may come true, if only George would kiss her.
Dr. George Farthingale is quite comfortably settled in his bachelor life and is not seeking to change a thing about it until Evie Cameron comes along and suddenly makes him yearn for something more. Wanting Evie is ridiculous, for she's the granddaughter of a duke and George is a mere doctor, a Farthingale, no less, and the ton doesn't quite know what to make of him and his boisterous family. One thing George does know is that he can never kiss Evie, no matter how desperately he wishes to take her in his arms and claim her heart forever.
Welcome! What's next for me? A trip to the Historical Romance Retreat and more historical romances, of course! I look forward to the upcoming releases of more
books in my Farthingale Regency romance series. Due out in February 2016 is A Midsummer's Kiss which is the story of Laurel Farthingale and Graelem Dayne, the
Scottish baron who needs to marry by Midsummer's Day or lose a vast inheritance. When he tricks Laurel into a betrothal, he gets more than he bargained for.
Graelem is Gabriel Dayne's cousin, and you met rakehell Gabriel and good girl Daisy Farthingale in Rules For Reforming A Rake released in May 2015. In the
e-book version of A Midsummer's Kiss and Rules For Reforming A Rake you'll find a link to a complimentary Farthingale novella called If You Kissed Me, written
as a thank you to all of you who helped make My Fair Lily, The Duke I'm Going To Marry, and Rules bestsellers! I loved writing Lily Farthingale and her identical
twin sister Daffodil (known as Dillie to her friends and family). Bluestocking Lily finds her sexy Scot, Ewan Cameron, and Dillie manages to gain the notice of
her reluctant duke, Ian Markham. I'm looking forward to having you meet Laurel next. Look for her in February 2016, and you'll find a sneak peek of Rose
Farthingale's story The Viscount's Rose at the end of Laurel's book.
Also coming in February 2016 is a romantic, fairy tale box set called Once Upon A Regency. My contribution is a Regency romance based on Sleeping Beauty called Wish Upon A Kiss. Hmm, lots of kissing going on in my books. Also to be released in early 2016 will be the first book in my historical romance paranormal Garden series. I'm a sucker for handsome dukes, medieval knights, and mythical creatures of any kind (Fae kings and Dragon Lords), and I love those mysterious, ancient prophecies. I can't wait to tell you about the Draloch prophecy and the innocent Regency heroine caught in the middle of a battle between kingdoms.
For me, the fun part about writing is to create the perfect heroine for each of my heroes, to imagine a woman with the heart to love them, the brains to outwit them, and the courage to save them from enemies and often from themselves. The romances I write are historical fiction, but the themes are timeless and universal, about the importance of family, of finding one's inner strength, of forgiveness and kindness, and the magic of romance.
"My Fair Lily is a bona fide page-turner, a delightful Regency historical romance that will leave you clamoring for more from this exciting debut author."
