“Simpson excels at imbuing her realistic characters with subtle depths...” - John Charles - American Library Association
“...a treat for lovers of gothic romance...” “There's a natural progression here from the traditional gothic of eerie occurrences with rational explanations to a true paranormal twist, and Simpson keeps the sultry sensuality at a strong simmer.” Nina Davis - American Library Association.
National bestselling novelist Donna Lea Simpson has written and published 28 novels and novellas. She has written Regency, time-travel, contemporary and paranormal-historical romances, as well as plunging into her long-time love, mystery writing. The first of her paranormal historical books for Berkley, Awaiting The Moon, (February 2006) became a national bestseller and was nominated for Best Paranormal Historical of 2006 by Romantic Times. The follow-up, Awaiting The Night, (November 2006) was also well-received; Harriet Klausner calls it “a wonderful historical that is a one sitting read.” Romantic Times says, “Victoria Holt would be proud.”
Awaiting The Fire (September 2007) continues the series with a scorching tale of paranormal twists, gothic mystery, danger and love set in the Cornish moors.
Rachel Neville should be the happiest woman in London. Her new fiance, Lord Yarnell, could not be a more suitable matrimonial catch, even if he seems somewhat obsessed with maintaining a proper, emotionless facade. Then, at her sister Pamela's wedding, Rachel unexpectedly encounters Colin Varens, an old friend and formerly persistent suitor. Enthusiastic, kind, and unconcerned about other people's opinions, Colin could not be more different than Lord Yarnell, and despite her best intentions, Rachel finds herself measuring Yarnell against Colin and finding her fiance lacking. As Rachel begins to rethink her own supremely rational plans to wed Yarnell, she starts finding out some surprising things about the people she thought she knew best, including herself. After watching her sister discover romance in Pamela's Second Season (2003), Rachel gets her own chance at true love in this beautifully nuanced love story. Simpson excels at imbuing her realistic characters with subtle depths and crafting thoughtful Regencies that quietly reward readers. John Charles
