More About the Author

Writing has always been my passion, and fortunately, I never run short of ideas. As a result, my one hundred published novels cover a range of genres, including Regency romance, science fiction, fantasy, romance, humor and mystery.

Currently, I write the Safe Harbor Medical series for Harlequin American Romance (there's a complete list of the books on my website, jacquelinediamond.com, and you can sign up for my free newsletter there, too).

Because readers respond my medical settings, and because I love plots with twists and surprises, my next project is a series of medical mysteries. I hope you'll check my website (www.jacquelinediamond.com) for updates.

An ongoing project is updating and revising some of my old favorites. It's a thrill to make these books, including a half-dozen traditional Regency romances, available for Kindle readers. To my frustration, Author Central shows old, outdated covers on my ebooks. Please click on the Kindle link to see the new and improved covers to these revised editions, which are published under the K. Loren Wilson imprint.

My contemporary romantic comedies include Daddy M.D.; Designer Genes; Calling All Glass Slippers, Yours, Mine and Ours; The Rancher's Unusual Nanny and my unusual time travel, One Husband Too Many.

One more thing: after teaching more than a hundred writing students, I've put together an ebook called How to Write a Novel in One (Not-so-Easy) Lesson. It's a friendly, down-to-earth approach to writing your novel, your way, and only 99 cents for Kindle readers.

Happy reading!

Marianne is about to have her London come-out. At a ball in her hometown, she shares a secluded garden waltz and subsequent kiss with an unknown man. She later learns he is the arrogant Lord who threatened to cut her family if she was actually presented in London society. She was persona non grata because her parents were thought to be spies for the French, and this Lord had lost many men in battle with the French. Marianne decided to go to London anyway and appear in many disguises and cause this Lord to fall in love with her. This would be her revenge.

I was interested to see how the couple would fall in love despite seemingly insurmountable challenges. Of course, they ultimately do, but there is so much implausibility along the way. Here's why:

-Key members of Marianne's family agree to her hair-brained, dangerous and highly improper scheme w/o a blink. No one really challenges her on this plan. For the most part, they aid and abet. It makes no sense whatsoever. It's so improper that she'd be ruined if all was discovered and everyone would be besmirched by the scandal, but they go along with it. It was a childish idea of revenge anyway.

-No one in her family really confronts or pushes back against the Lord for his threats. They just fold to his demands, even though they hold a certain amount of social power of their own. Couldn't they have called on allies and closed ranks? Anything but agree to wild schemes of an 18 yr old girl with no town bronze whatsover?

-The threatening Lord knows Marianne's name and who her family is. When he meets her in London, she tells him her name is Marianne and he knows who her family is. She has taken on the surname of a cousin (a KNOWN cousin).

I'm so sad this book appears so anonymous on this page without even a summary or a review. It is one of my favorite regency era romances that I tend to read once a year or so. Marianne is a spirited young woman looking forward to her first London season and is stunned when she is banned by some lofy Marquis solely on her parents bad connection as spies--parents she hardly knew herself at that. Determined to show up the arragont young nobleman she ventures to London despite his letter or warning and in vast array of disguises from a gypsy fortune tellery, lady of fashion, or palourmaid makes out to charm him to teach him a lesson. Revenge of course comes with a price as she feels she's losing her heart to a man who might very well despise her once he learns who she really is.... an excellant, witty read and highly recommended.

Marianne Arnet is eager to come out in London,where as an anonymous poet being published in the GAZETTE, she hopes to meet the literary lights of England, and also the admirer of her work who writes heartwarming letters that charm her, signed only "J." Then Lord Whitestone, a leader of London society, warns her grandfather the Earl if she is presented at Almack's, he will see she and her family are shunned for her connection to parents believed to be spies for Napoleon. She chooses to forego her debut, and go to London to masquerade in various guises to beguile the Marquis and teach him a lesson. It turns out to be a lesson in love, and a merry chase before her true identity is revealed, and the tender feelings he has shown for Marianne are sorely tested--on both sides. A Lady of Letters is a lark full of wit and Jacqueline Diamond's originality and heartwarming style as a writer of Regency romance.

Jacqueline Diamond pens a clever tale with the sworn enemy theme with great wit and engaging dialogue. Jeremy, Lord Whitestone is a gallant alpha hero and unpredictable Marianne never ceases to delight in this tale of secret letters, deception and deep passion. Plot twists and new revelations kept me turning the pages. A thoroughly entertaining read!!

A Lady of Letters was a delightful and unusual romp unlike any Regency I've ever read before. (And I've read hundreds.) I sped through it until the end, enjoying the story all the way. I can see I'll be working my way through the rest of Jacqueline Diamond's Regency romances. :)

I have lately been a bit too stressed out to read anything requiring brain activity on my part. So I acquired a collection of "light reading". It is however irritating to notice how badly written some of these books are.

The main character of "A Lady of Letters" is doing such improbable things and for the most part with no motive at all (not even an improbable one) that the whole reading experience becomes truly annoying. The only good part is when the whole family together rally against the authorities (fantastic too, but at least logically so).

Remarkable! A truly enjoyable read! This was the second of Jacque's Regency Romance books that I read. From the very first chapter, I didn't want to put it down. Again, Jacque does an amazing job of creating characters that you both love and loathe. Jacque does an excellent job of giving you a story that draws you in and just won't let you go. The main character is both strong and cunning and won't give up until the very end. The unjust judgment that she receives from her love and from society is justified in a heartwarming ending.
