About the Author
Ann Lethbridge majored in history and business. She always loved the glamorous, if rather risky, Georgians and in particular the Regency era as drawn by Georgette Heyer. It was that love that prompted her to write her first Regency novel in 2000. She found she enjoyed it so much she just couldn't stop! Ann gave up a career in university administration to focus on her first love, writing novels and lives in Canada with her family. Visit her website at:
