Our wonderful Victoria magazine has an exciting new section gracing its pages and its website! All upcoming issues will feature a new Victoria Vignette, sponsored by Kensington Publishing, that will appear within the pages of the magazine along with an additional two to three vignettes that will be posted on the Victoria website.
From best-selling and acclaimed novelists, the sponsored vignettes will intrigue us all with historical facts unearthed during research and offer a glimpse of society, culture, and life during their novels’ time periods.
Below are previews of three vignettes already featured on the Victoria website.
A love affair with historical romances led Susanna Craig to pursue three degrees in literature and a career as an English professor. When she’s not teaching or writing academic essays about Jane Austen and her contemporaries, she enjoys putting her fascination with words and knowledge of the period to better use: writing Regency-era romances. In Susanna Craig’s tempestuous new series, The Companion’s Secret, rebellious hearts prove hard to tame—but can England’s most dangerous rake be captured by a wild Irish rose?
S. Fenichelis a romance author who writes across several subcategories, including Regency historical romance. In the first installment of her Everton Domestic Society historical romance series, not every match is made by design.
USA Today best-selling author Ella Quinn’s previous jobs and studies have always been on the serious side. Reading historical romances, especially Regencies, was her escape. Eventually, her love of historical novels led her to try her hand at writing them. In Ella Quinn’s newest release, The Marquis and I, the Marquis of Kenilworth engages in a flower war with another suitor for Lady Charlotte Carpenter’s hand. While the other suitor selects every kind of bouquet he can find, Kenilworth sends only pink Provence roses mixed with ivy and nigella. Clearly, he was sending the right message.
