ROMANCE IS IN THE AIR SHOWCASING AUTHOR G.G. VANDAGRIFF







Rescuing Rosalind by G.G. Vandagriff

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Regency romance

“Prolific author G.G. Vandagriff creates a world full of intrigue, suspense, and romance that fans of the Regency Period will adore. Vandagriff writes in a style reminiscent of Georgette Heyer.”–Deseret News.

When frigate Captain Buckingham Kernow-Smith encounters a sprite in a topiary garden he pulls off her stocking cap, revealing the character of “Rosalind” from As You Like It, played, in this case, by the appealing Fanny Edwards.

Three years pass. The War over, Buck encounters his Rosalind at a ball, where she has developed into a notable beauty. However, her guardian confides to him that she is dancing on the very edge of propriety. Buck, who has been fighting the French since he was twelve, also finds the ton confining and sympathizes with Fanny/Rosalind’s plight as a properly reared young lady.

Together, they make a dangerous pair, toeing the line between propriety and scandal. When they push their fun too far, Fanny faces ruin and the demimonde. Will Buck confide his own secrets and overcome his life-long aversion to marriage? Can there be a happily ever after for someone as headstrong and impetuous as Fanny?









“Vandagriff’s Regency Austen-esque romance is perfect for any reader who loves a good old-fashioned romance and can enoy the journey of two people learning not to fear love while learning how to have faith in each other.” –Deseret News

“Regency Romance in the style of Austen and Heyer. Love as it’s meant to be written.” –InDtale Magazine

“Another Regency delight from G.G. Vandagriff!” –Meridian Magazine









Chapter One

It had been many years since Captain Buckingham Kernow-Charles, Marquis of Deal, had strolled in the formal Ruisdell Palace gardens. The topiary animals that had so delighted him when he was twelve were now rendered even more magical by a frosting of snow. The last time he had seen them was that summer before he first went to sea. The giraffe, the boar, the jaguar, and . . . what was that?

Before him in the freezing mist appeared a slender, small youth dressed in tights, a belted tunic, and a comical hat that resembled nothing so much as a blue and red striped stocking.

“Marry, kind sir, how com’st thou here?”

He blinked his eyes, but the youth remained. His comely, almost feminine features had a puzzled look. Upon closer inspection, Buck saw signs of a bosom and smothered a grin.

“I am a guest of the duke. My name is Captain Kernow-Charles,” he said, forgetting his new title.

The apparition bowed from the waist. “And I, kind sir, am Gannymede. Welcome to the Forest of Arden.”

Buck’s forehead bunched in a frown. Gannymede? Shakespeare? As You Like It? Striding forward, he took hold of the end of the stocking hat and pulled. Out tumbled waves of thick auburn hair, descending to Gannymede’s waist. “Thou art Rosalind, I think?”

“Thou dost not play fair, sir.”

He chuckled. “You are, quite obviously, a girl. Your disguise was futile. Does your mother know you are cavorting about dressed as a boy, boldly addressing strangers?”

“Rosalind” blushed a fiery red that clashed with her bounteous hair. “My mother is nothing to do with you, sir. She lives in Shropshire. I am sister to the duchess and may do as I please.”

“How old are you?” he asked with the sternness for which he was known aboard ship.

“I do not see that that is any of your business, sir.” Her eyes, an unusual shade of turquoise, snapped with annoyance.

“You may address me as Captain. My guess places you at sixteen. Am I wrong?”

“Quite wrong, Captain. I am to make my curtsey to the Queen in the spring. I am a great many months older than seventeen.”

He saw that she was beginning to shiver in her scant clothing.

“It is too cold for you to be out in this weather dressed as you are. Come back to the house.”

Looking mulish, she said, “I am not cold. Besides which, I am meeting Jacques.”

“If I know Jacques, he will not come out in such weather.”

“He wishes to write a poem about it.”

“A lament, you mean.”

“Possibly. May I say, you are quite overbearing, Captain? But at least you know your Shakespeare.”

UNFORGETTABLE LOVE FEATURING G.G. VANDAGRIFF @ggvandagriff

 

 

Love Unexpected

by G.G. Vandagriff

Don’t miss G.G. Vandagriff’s latest Regency romance where a simmering attraction combines with a dangerous mystery . . .

When the widowed Lady Marianne Deveridge is invited to spend the season in London with her friend Lady Penelope Wellingham, she has no idea that Penny and Beau have another guest: Captain Ernest Saunders, Beau’s brother.

Matchmaking is definitely afoot. However, after having been married to wandering explorer, Marianne has no intention of becoming involved with a wandering sea captain.

Her first sight of Captain Saunders in all his robust masculinity brings every one of her senses to attention. She knows then that her resolve will be difficult to keep.

Almost immediately upon making the captain’s acquaintance, Marianne becomes the focus of a mysterious villain who is devising a horse racing fraud. What has she seen to endanger a deadly felon? She has no idea.

Captain Saunders makes it his business to keep Marianne safe, and the two of them are brought closer by their investigation into the dark side of horse racing. Still, she thinks she is managing to resist his charms.

It is not until her very survival is at stake that she realizes how interwoven their lives have become. Will her heart ever recover once she watches another ship put out to sea?

When her [Marianne’s] toilette was complete, she made her way down her stairs to the drawing room from which she could hear conversation and laughter. She reminded herself that, no matter how charming the man, she could not allow him to charm her. A sea captain, indeed!

Conversation immediately ceased upon her entry. Her eyes flew to the figure in a white and blue dress uniform standing in the center of the room. She very nearly gasped.

Oh my. Now there is a man!

Broad-chested, blond-headed, with brilliant blue eyes set in a well-tanned face, the captain was looking at her with open curiosity. His air of masculinity reached out across the room bringing her senses to sharp attention. She gave her head a little shake to break the spell.

“Ah! You must be Penelope’s bosom friend. She has been telling me that you are Ian Deveridge’s widow,” His voice resonated in the sudden quiet.

Fighting the sense that bid her to flee, she at last gave up and walked in his direction.

“Yes, I am Lady Deveridge,” she said, reluctantly offering her hand. He took it in his and bowed over it. The touch warmed her all the way up her arm and into her chest. Alarmed, she barely resisted the instinct to snatch her fingers away.

“Captain Ernest Saunders,” he said. “I am pleased to make your acquaintance.”

 

 

Love Unexpected by G.G. Vandagriff is an absolute delight to read. This thrilling novel with a bit of adventure and mystery within is well-written, page-turning, and one that readers will absolutely not want to put down. Vandagriff has a great talent in the way she writes, capturing her readers’ attention from page one every time! And this fun new series is no different. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy charming historical regency romance stories.–The Singing Librarian Blog Review

LOVE UNEXPECTED is a sweet romance with a little danger and two strong characters. I loved Earnest and Marianne from the start. I also loved that you can feel their attraction to each other and so can they. I then enjoyed the back and forth between them and how much time they ended up spending together, developing a friendship before the romance progressed. The suspense elements of the story also kept things interesting and provided some sweet moments between these two. I adored Marianne’s daughter. The ending was adorable and perfect for this story.–Wishful Endings Blog Review

 

 

Author G.G. Vandagriff

As a writer, I love to wake up each day to a world of my own creation. This has been going on for a long time since I started writing at age nine! I love to write novels set in the Regency, such as Love Unexpected, because I can totally immerse myself in the challenges of another place and time. But I also like the world of Romantic Suspense (my newest novel, Breaking News, comes out this month), Historical Fiction and Romance, and Mysteries.

My favorite novel? Jane Eyre. I love: playing with my seven grandchildren, Florence, Italy, Chocolate, Sundance Resort, Lilacs, and dachshunds.
