The Brides of North Barrows is a series of Regency romance novellas. Daphne and Eurydice, the Goodenham sisters of North Barrows, are the focus of this series of four books: book one is the second-chance-at-love of their governess, an heiress in disguise; book two features Daphne’s conquest of a duke in disguise with no time for love; book three features the duke’s sister and her second-chance-at-love; book four is the story of Eurydice’s marriage of convenience which quickly sparks true love.
This fictional realm connects some of the other worlds in the Regency era. Alexander, the hero of A Duke By Any Other Name, for example, is the Duke of Inverfyre, which you’ll recognize as the Highland holding in the Ravensmuir world held by the Armstrong family (who we first encounter in The Scoundrel.)
Alexander also lives at Airdfinnan, which is the home of Angus MacGillivray in The Beauty in the Bride Quest world. Clearly, these worlds have been connected at some point between the Middle Ages and the Regency. There’s a story in that!
Finally, Alexander has a seed from the vine that grows at Airdfinnan in The Beauty, which has become legendary. It sprouts in A Duke By Any Other Name, making a believer of Alexander.

I had to buy this cover image as it looks like Sophia and Lucien under the full moon at Castle Keyvnor. 🙂
