About Rosie Chapel
While writing the above novels, I was captivated by the Regency Romance and a whole new series of books has resulted, set in an era which continues to fascinate me. In between all this, one or two contemporary romances refused to be ignored, so now I have three genres clamouring in my head. As I am also involved in several anthologies, a great honour, it can be chaotic at times - the various voices in my head are very insistent - but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Born in the UK, I now live in Perth Australia, with my hubby and our three furkids. When not writing, I love catching up with friends, burying myself in a book (or three), discovering the wonders of Western Australia, or, and the best, a quiet evening at home with my husband, enjoying a glass of wine and a movie.

Her rescuer - his redemption
Horrifically scarred during the war, William Harcourt - Marquis of Blackthorne - prefers to spend his days in the quiet of his daffodil garden; plants do not pity, turn away, or judge.
Lucy Truscott, whose life is far removed from that of the ton, has no idea that by saving the life of a young woman, to whom she bears an uncanny resemblance, her own will be placed in mortal danger.
A chance encounter leads to something more. William begins to trust that Lucy sees the man beneath the scars, while Lucy is persuaded that love might actually transcend status.
Unfortunately, before their courtship has really begun, someone has every intention of ending it - permanently.
Rose Archer was almost content, assisting her doctor father in a tiny fishing village in the north of Yorkshire. To experience the world beyond, a tantalising dream – until she met Nick.

This is the fifth book in the Linen and Lace Series. While each book in this series is a standalone read in it’s own right, the characters from the other books do like to pop in occasionally.
Professor Reuben Faulkner is content with his life. Approaching retirement, he still conducts courses in ancient history at the university where he's worked all his life, has a home he loves in a small North Yorkshire village, and is the author of a critically acclaimed book on the Emperor Hadrian. Out of the blue, he receives a letter from an American law firm. After more than three decades of silence, Erin, his wife - who abandoned him and their young son without explanation or further contact - wants to dissolve their marriage. Does Erin know of Reuben's minor celebrity? Is the prospect of a generous settlement too good an opportunity to miss?
Not quite fifty and happily single, para-legal Paige Latimer accompanies her boss to Rosedale Abbey to interview their new client – an aging professor whose estranged wife has demanded a divorce. What ought to be a simple meeting, is made slightly more complicated when Reuben Faulkner turns out to be the polar opposite from the image in Paige's head… worse… she finds herself drawn to him.
Unexpectedly, the couple are thrown together and, although Reuben would prefer Paige not be caught up in his divorce, their attraction is becoming harder to deny.
Just as Reuben dares to risk his heart a second time, Erin tosses a spanner in the works, and her latest scheme could derail their blossoming romance before it has chance to start.
A plea for help ignored. A child left to bring up her baby brother.
Livvy has no respect for the nobility; they let her down when she most needed them. Why should she accede to their demands now?
Philip, stunned to discover the young heir to the dukedom lives a stone’s throw away in a ramshackle cottage, resolves to restore the child to his birthright.
They meet in a clash of wills, but just when it seems Livvy might surrender, the victory Philip desires, may not taste all that sweet.
This book is a collection of two short stories originally released in multi author anthologies now available together.
Luck be a Pirate (first published in the Kiss My Luck Anthology)
Luck wasn't something retired pirate Kennet Alexson believed in – good or bad. However, even he had to concede that landing a job at Trentams shipyard, and meeting Lynette Collins, was more than coincidence.
Fortune it seemed, was smiling on him for once.
As Kennet adjusts to life on dry land, his friendship with Lynette deepens into something far more enduring, and what once seemed elusive now becomes possible.
Unfortunately, fate has other plans, and Kennet's good luck is about to run out.
The Highwayman's Kiss (first published in the Once Upon a Love anthology)
Nothing exciting had ever happened to Juliette St Clair. Her days were spent assisting her father or calling on friends, wandering art galleries, taking constitutionals or, and more preferably, escaping into her books. Her evenings — an endless round of balls, where she preferred to remain invisible.
Until the day she was robbed by a highwayman.
This is a pair of Christmas novellas, Heart Rescued and Catch a Snowflake.
Heart Rescued (originally published in the Tales for the Season Anthology)
Four years since Jasper lost the woman he was hoping to marry. Four years since he closed his heart, and withdrew from Society. He has no idea his reclusive existence is about to be shattered.
Enter his sister's best friend, Harriet, a flame haired beauty, who needs his help. Reluctantly he agrees and as they spend time together, it is clear their feelings run deep. Although Harriet affects Jasper in a way no woman ever has, he believes her to be out of his league ~ but it's Christmas and she might just be the one to melt his frozen heart.
Catch a Snowflake
Romance often blossoms in the most unlikely of places - but in a ward full of wounded soldiers - surely not?
When Lucas Withers comes face to face with Jemima Parsons - a young woman who blames him for her brother's injury - falling in love is the last thing on their minds. What neither of them anticipated, was the magic of snowflakes.
In the aftermath of an horrific car accident, Daisy Forrester travels to Italy - hoping, so far from her memories, she might begin to heal.
Archaeologist, and single father, Adam Willoughby is too busy looking after his young daughter to give romance let alone love, a thought.
Neither expects a chance encounter in an ancient ruin to be anything more, but sometimes, that's all it takes.
Please note - as a bonus, at the end of this book I have included a chapter from Prelude to Fate. I hope you enjoy the excerpt.
