Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Illicit Love of a Courtesan was inspired by the memoirs of a real Regency Courtesan, Harriette Wilson, I have been telling her story on my blog at janelark.wordpress.com/ . 
As this was my debut novel, Edward and Ellen lived within my imagination for six years before making it into print with a publisher, to be shared with others. So I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to firstly receive so many five star reviews, and then to see this novel race up the charts in February 2014 and reach number twenty-two in the overall Kindle chart, and hold the No.1 Historical Romance position. A huge thank you to all my readers, and note, there are many more books to come in the Marlow Intrigues family historical romance series. The story has only just begun...

About the Author

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult romance and author of a No.1 bestselling Historical Novel,'The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, as well as a Kindle overall Top 25, bestselling author.
She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of difficulty derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.
When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write.
Now Jane is writing a Regency series as well as contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others' imaginations at last.
You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane's favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was 'Katherine' a story crafted from reality.
Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses these to create more realistic plots.
'Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it's wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.'
