Meet Meara Platt:
Meara Platt is a USA Today bestselling author and an award winning, Amazon UK All-star. Her favorite place in all the world is England’s Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape, including her award winning, fantasy romance Dark Gardens series. If you’d like to learn more about the ancient Fae prophecy that is about to unfold in the Dark Gardens series, as well as Meara’s lighthearted, international bestselling Regency romances in the Farthingale series and Book of Love series, or her more emotional Braydens series, please visit Meara's website or Amazon author page.
Meara's Contribution: Aislin ~ My story in the anthology is Aislin and it is inspired by Poe's poem
A Dream Within A Dream (how romantic is that?). William Croft, Baron Whitpool, has recurring dreams of a young woman with long, black hair and smoke-gray eyes running amid the ruins of Tintagel Castle on the Cornwall coast. He calls her Aislin in his dreams, but who is she? If she exists, how is she connected to the missing years of his life?

Meet Maggi Andersen:
I am an Australian author of over 35 novels and novellas. Many are Amazon bestsellers and all are passionate adventure-filled romances set in the Regency, Georgian, and Victorian eras. I also write contemporary romantic suspense and young adult novels. Browse my website and my blog to find out more about me and my books, including snippets, excerpts, reviews and giveaways.
Maggi's Contribution: Beth ~
This collection includes my story called ‘Beth’. Beth Harrismith first appears as a thirteen-year-old in Governess to the Duke’s Heir, Book Four of Dangerous Lords. Beth is now eighteen and in London for her first Season. But her plans to dance the night away at a Mayfair ball go horribly awry. Her brother-in-law, Andrew, Duke of Harrow has warned her to beware of rakes with golden tongues, but he could not foresee what lies in wait for Beth when she finds herself alone in a Gothic mansion and at the mercy of a dangerous rake.

Meet Sydney Jane Baily:
Critically acclaimed author Sydney Jane Baily writes historical romance set in Victorian England, late 19th-century America, the Middle Ages, the Georgian era, and the Regency period. She believes in happily-ever-after stories for an already-challenging world with engaging characters and attention to period detail. Born and raised in California, she has traveled the world, spending a lot of exceedingly happy time in the U.K. where her extended family resides, eating fish and chips, drinking shandys, and snacking on Maltesers and Cadbury bars. Sydney currently lives in New England with her family — human, canine, and feline. You can learn more about her books, read her blog, sign up for her newsletter (and get a free book), and contact her via her website at SydneyJaneBaily.com.
Sydney's Contribution: Eleanor ~
My story, Eleanor, features the youngest Blackwood sister, who made an appearance in my Beastly Lords books. This stand-alone tale offers more than a passing nod to Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, The Gold Bug, with a secret code, a treasure hunt, and a few terribly stormy nights. Unlike Poe’s story, the greatest treasure for Eleanor and her dashing hero, Grayson, is the precious human heart.
