Book Description

It started with a stolen kiss …
Fiery Myriah Whitney is wild of nature, contrary, and independent. But when her father catches her kissing the handsome Sir Roland (how else is she to determine if he is the one who will make her feel thunder and lightning, hear bells and music?), he declares that her days of headstrong independence are over. She will, he commands, announce her engagement to Sir Roland—immediately.

But in an age where marriages are about alliances rather than affection, practicality not passion, Myriah wants more—she wants to fall in love. And she does not love Sir Roland. So she runs away to her grandfather with her faithful manservant, Tabson, at her side.

A wrong turn in the fog, however, leads to the discovery of an injured young man, and before she knows it Myriah is caught up in world of intrigue and secrets. And when she meets the young man’s older brother, the mysterious Lord Kit Wimborne, the sparks fly. Their first encounter—in his bed, both of them naked, no less!—is an explosion of wills, and it is what finally set Myriah on fire.

She has, it seems, finally found her thunder and lightning…
an excerpt:
She lay staring in utter disbelief
at the stranger she was still holding in her arms

Lantern in hand, Kit moved upstairs to his bedchamber. He was surprised the drapes in his room had been pulled tight but was too tired to contemplate the mystery. He set the lit lantern on a side table and shrugged out of his clothes. He then picked up the lantern and made his way to his bed, setting the lantern on the nightstand. However, there he stopped short.
Someone with long, flaming ringlets of hair was lying face down, covered only to her waist—in his bed!
His first thought made him grin. His puppy of a brother had no doubt brought her home with him, but why would the rascal send her off to his bedchamber?
Drape mystery solved, and another one to contemplate.
“Now what to do with you, sweet,” he murmured. Grinning, as he thought, One shouldn’t infringe on one’s brother’s property—but really, Billy, why the devil did you put her in my bed? This question repeated itself, and still grinning, his lordship decided the only thing to do in such a situation was to wake her—his way!
He nibbled at her delicate ears and placed a warm kiss on her throat. She groaned pleasurably. The sound stimulated him, and he leaned over her and took her mouth with

5.0 out of 5 stars Fanning the Flames of Myriah Fire! January 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What was once an innocent, if rollicking, regency romance has exploded with passion as Claudy Conn revisits Myriah Fire to turn up the heat.

No mewing coquette she, Myriah Whitney refuses to settle nicely into marriage as prescribed by the haut ton of British society. Born into wealth and privilege with both beauty and brains, Myriah is willfully holding out for a love match. Unfortunately, Myriah gets caught in what appears to be an amorous kiss with the eligible Sir Roland and rather than create a scene or acquiesce to a loveless marriage, Myriah chooses to slip away before an engagement can be announced.

The road Myriah takes from London turns out to be one of high adventure, when she comes across a young nobleman, bleeding to death with a bullet in his side. Myriah manages to get the youth safely to his manor and in the absence of servants tends his wounds. As innocent as she may be, Myriah quickly finds herself in yet another compromising position, when she wakes in the silken embrace of Lord Kit Winborne, the youth's older brother. Being mistaken for a bit-of-muslin might have proven devastating for a lesser soul, but this miss is anything but daunted. She rises from the encounter with dignity intact and proceeds to win the good Lord's heart.

Myriah may feel an instant attraction for Kit, but she already has suspicions that all is not well on the Winborne estate. Most of the servants are gone, the grounds have become overgrown, and then there is the mystery of how young William Winborne came by his bullet wound. The Winbornes seem to have fallen on hard times.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth the Time October 30, 2013
By jacksib
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that this story was as about as boring as it gets. There was no romance, just two people who wanted to have sex together. No building up the characters, or the plot. Ridiculous behavior from the heroine, inappropriate language for the time period. Basically, crap. This book was so bad, I couldn't finish it. I don't know the people who wrote rave reviews. All I can say is, "Really?"

2.0 out of 5 stars Fire without a Spark September 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
1.5 Stars: would give one except I actually finished the story. The male lead may have had some redeemable qualities hidden under his rough exterior, but they weren't fleshed out enough to make me fall in love with him. And there was no "falling" just sex and boom there is love. I'm not an expert on the language of the day, but the dialog is old English until they have sex and then it becomes very modern. At least the ending was decent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fraud Perpetrated on Readers October 10, 2013
By labrat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sexed up rehash of Claudette William's (aka Claudy Conn) MYRIAH which was published in 1978.

It was interesting to contrast the the old school attention to Regency detail with the obviously added and crudely worded sex scenes that would not have passed muster in 1978.

Not cool, Claudette, or whatever you call yourself these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book - definitely recommend it!!! July 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I just finished this book and I really enjoyed it. Claudy is a wonderful author, with detailed story telling that allows you to become part of the story. From beginning to end I was thoroughly entertained with this book, and hated for it to end. I would defintely recommend this to anyone who wants to be swept away to another time and place, to enjoy a great story. Claudy definitely has created a life long fan, and I can't wait to read more of her books.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK read October 5, 2013
By kshrop
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Myriah flirts her way through a few seasons but cannot find a man she can love. While at a ball her father finds her kissing Lord Roland, a fellow who is deeply in debt. Mariah`s family is rich, and the nasty Roland is really wanting her money. But of course she is beautiful and he wouldn't mind bedding her -- at least for awhile.

Her father has spoiled her but decides she needs to marry Roland. Our heroine does act a tad spoiled, and she doesn't understand why women are not allowed to kiss a few men. Well duh -- this is the Regency period and she isn't Caroline Lamb.

So she runs away intending to go to her grandfather, but comes across a young man who has been shot. She takes him to his home and looks after him. Shortly after our hero arrives home. The older brother and Lord of the manor.

Kit is suspicious of our heroine, and she returns the compliment. He knows she is lying about her identity, and she thinks he is involved in smuggling.

There is basically an immediate physical attraction which the couple does not fight. She has sex with him and then knows she loves him.

Roland discovers where she is hiding and plans to force her to marry him. I won't give any spoilers, though I think most readers will have figured it out.

The characters were not fleshed out enough for me. Basically they were both good looking and both honorable people. She did look after the brother, and their relationship was written as one of their seeing each other in that light.

I did get a little tired of the use of cant. The characters sounded like teenagers trying to impress their peers. Did the writers of that period use those phrases? I don't think so-- unless it was a character being made to look foolish. Perhaps I am being overly particular.

This was a n OK story. I really couldn't get into the characters deeply. This was worth reading but I won't go back to it again.

More About the Author

Hi everyone!

I am so happy you stopped by.
Some of you may know me as Claudette Williams/Melanie Davis, two names I used when I was writing regency and historical romances. In more recent years, I fell in love with the fantasy/paranormal world of romance as well.


I created my Legend series. The first, Spellbound-Legend was received with great success and I went on to continue the series. I wrote Prince Prelude-Legend, as a backstory for the Legend series and a continuation of Prince Breslyn's tale started in Prince in the Mist.
By popular demand I gave you Aaibhe, Shee Queen's backstory and now The Complete Legend series in a boxed set.

I have over 40 mass market bestsellers over the years with Random House, Doubleday, and Zebra, but love being an an Indie Author.
As an Indie author, I still want to give my readers the best that I can, so I have a wonderful professional editor, a copy editor and an amazing cover artist.

In the meantime, some of my historical romance fans have asked for more in that genre and I have been hard at work rewriting and updating my regency romances and making them more realistic and spicy. I also created my bestselling paranormal regency, Netherby Halls.

Vampires whispered to me and Shadowlove-Stalkers was born as the first of three, each stand alone, though it comes together in the third book, as the team unites for a final battle.

What do I do when I'm not writing? I love the outdoors and my Bob and I are always hiking, swimming, traveling, playing with our wolf and her son and the horses. My daughter and her great husband live nearby and so am very lucky to be able to spend wonderful times with them.
My favorite things, Chocolate, fries and pizza, ha, which I get to enjoy so rarely, LOL.
My beautiful Cherokee and her son Rocky the Man who we both love to spoil. Pride our horse.
The Vampire Diaries and I am definitely Team Damon!
