I just love this book! It’s my signature fun and sexy Regency. If you enjoy this, I’m confident you’ll like my other historical books. If the sexual content is a little too much, you may still love the sweet Regency, Miss Isabella Thaws a Frosty Lord.
My historicals are written using period slang and in an older style, think super steamy Jane Austen. 😉

A big howdy and welcome to everyone – both new readers and longtime fans. In these crazy times, I hope you and your family are staying safe, sane and healthy!
After a long hiatus, I’m thrilled to report a number of books are coming out the next few months, both Regency and contemporary.
Back in 2016, when I started finishing a couple things, I heard it’d be a good idea to save them up and release five or so books at once. Uh…I’ve since learned that’s not a good idea for someone like me. ADHD plus computer limitations plus loads of books on the brain do not make for a good combination.
Fortunately, I’ve got two wonderful ladies who are helping me out now – wave to Jen and Martinique – and we’re all working together to stay active on social media and, more importantly, get some new books published pronto.
As you can see by the picture of my office, I needed their help!
My new website is up and running complete with info on the five Regency books coming out this year (two reprints and the Mistress in the Making Trilogy). There’s also the first glimpse of the new pen name and contemporaries being released later this summer and fall under Larissa Lynx.
Of course, my Primary Distractors are happy to have their own dedicated page and stand ready to greet everyone, especially those of you who throw cyber treats their way.
Summer Contest – Enter between now and July 7th.
To get your summer reading started off right, there’s a great contest you can enter to win a WATERPROOF Kindle!
I’ve teamed up with Night Owl Romance and other authors to bring you the chance for some great prizes. You enter by reading romance book blurbs– hopefully finding some new great books in the process–and sharing the event. Learn more and Enter here!
Lady Scandal Release
First up on the publishing front is Lady Scandal, a reprint of the 2011 release with a gorgeous new cover and in paperback for the first time. Currently at $0.99, it’s a great deal for a couple hours’ escape.
Sparks—and stockings—fly when an interview for a husband turns into a game of forfeits, and a scandalous lady and one handsome rogue learn how very right they are for each other.
Lady Scandal is a fun and super sexy Regency-styled Historical Romance written using period-appropriate slang (known as cant) and words common during the early 1800s. Zeus, Juliet (and Larissa, of course) bid you “Sparkish fine reading”.
I’m building my Launch Team, affectionately known as Larissa’s Lions. These are fans who either purchase books near release day or receive Advance Reading copies and leave reviews, post on social media if it’s a book they really like, and generally help spread the word.
Interested? Contact my assistant Jen at lyons.larissa at yahoo dot com.
Active on Social Media? Larissa is too, finally! 🙂
Sexy historical romance Lady Scandal releases today! First time in paperback.
While written in a more “traditional Regency” style of voice (meaning it doesn’t sound like a modern story simply plopped in the past), Lady Scandal is a fun, lighthearted sexy romp much closer to Historical Romance in tone and sexual content than it is what most folks mean when they refer to a traditional Regency.
With the exception of a few authors who include sex scenes on the page–the fabulous Mary Balogh comes to mind–when readers refer to Regency romance, many are thinking sweet, clean and wholesome. That description, for the most part, applies to my holiday Christmas novella Miss Isabella Thaws a Frosty Lord, but not steamy Lady Scandal.
An extended novella at 37,000 words, the primary action takes place during a single, stormy day. If you enjoy a Regency-era “sound” to your flirty, blatantly sexy romance, I hope you’ll give Lady Scandal a try.
After years and years of no activity on the publishing front (regardless of how much activity has been going on in the background on the writing front), I’m thrilled to announce that Lady Scandal, my very first self-published release ever, has gotten a lovely makeover–complete with gorgeous new cover, thank you Victoria Cooper!–and is also coming out in print for the first time!
Releasing June 30, 2020 – Lady Scandal
Note to Readers who bought and read the first edition, with the the cover below: the story is basically unchanged.
