More About the Author
Maureen Driscoll is an Emmy-nominated writer-producer in Los Angeles whose credits include "The Dish" on the Style Network, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and Nickelodeon's "BrainSurge." She was also a recipient of a Walt Disney Studios screenwriting fellowship, where she wrote a romantic comedy based on her rather painful divorce. The script didn't make it to the big screen, but it did teach her a few things about happily ever after.
Before moving to Hollywood, Maureen spent nearly a decade working on Capitol Hill. Her novel DATING GEORGE CLOONEY is a political satire inspired by her time there.
ALWAYS BELIEVE IN LOVE is the fourth book in the Emerson series of Regency romances. The first was ALWAYS COME HOME, followed by ALWAYS TRUE TO HER and ALWAYS HAVE HOPE. They follow the Kellington series: NEVER A MISTRESS, NO LONGER A MAID; NEVER MISS A CHANCE; NEVER WAGER AGAINST LOVE; NEVER RUN FROM LOVE; NEVER DENY YOUR HEART and NEVER TURN AWAY.
Maureen is currently working on Rose's story, ALWAYS FOREVER, the next book in the Emerson series.
She loves hearing from her readers on Facebook at Maureen Driscoll Author, Twitter, Goodreads and MaureenDriscollRomance.Wordpress.com.
She is very, very appreciative of her readers and thanks people for taking the Kellingtons and Emersons to heart.

Her first book, `Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid' was the one that totally hooked me on the Kellington family and after reading the subsequent `Never Miss a Chance' [the second Kellington book], and `Never Wager against Love' [the third one], I wondered what she had in store for Hal, the youngest brother. Well, I wonder no more!
Hal is one of those rake's that's more a scoundrel who hides his pain and heartbreak behind a façade of the charmers smile, a healthy sexual appetite and a copious amount of drink, not necessarily in that order. His family loves him and every one of them would do anything to help him, yet they do realize that Hal himself would have to want their help in order for his life to take another turn.
None of them, including Hal himself, would even dream about that `the turn' would walk into his life by way of a very smart, witty and most forward thinking young woman by the name of Melanie Sutton.
Mel was orphaned at ten and went to live with her maternal aunt, but when that aunt passed away nine years later, her uncle, the Earl of Heffner and his wife were happy to take her in and introduce her to English Society. Mel, a free thinking American and Quaker educated, wasn't so much impressed with the ton and she was restless until she met a reformer by the name of Mrs. Seton. This woman, albeit a bit harsh and at times full of herself, gave our heroine some purpose in life and made her life worthwhile.Read more ›
One major high point of this book was the inventive sex scenes. Without giving major spoilers, there is a scene with both Melanie and Hal in a brothel, and it was completely unexpected, and hot as hell. Ms. Driscoll has a penchant for writing sex scenes that challenge traditional regency narratives (and senses of propriety), for which I am extremely grateful. I like the attention to detail as far as discussions of consent, desire, and protection go.
And while I wasn't as engaged in Hal and Melanie's story as I have been with other protagonists in this series, I was so happy to be able to find out what happened between Liam and Rosalind during the wedding in the last book. I have been waiting so long to find out what happens between them, and cannot wait to read the next book.
