The Deseret News says, " Like [Georgette] Heyer, she [Vandagriff] centers her novel on witty characters that readers will love. These brilliant characters combine with an unexpected witty and humorous tone to create a must read." The Taming of Lady Kate is the second in the trilogy of Regency novels, "Three Rogues and Their Ladies."
In this story, Lady Kate Derramore and the Marquis of Northbrooke have one thing in common: In order to receive their inheritances, they must marry. Lady Kate, prevented from marrying the man she loves by her father's will, determines to marry for convenience. With the forthrightness for which she is noted, she sets her sights on Jack--aforesaid Marquis. Jack, meanwhile, has tumbled into love with Kate at their first meeting. All might have gone swimmingly, were it not for his "other life," the mysterious job that calls him out of town at the most inopportune moments. Unwittingly, he puts Lady Kate's life in danger, and while attempting to rescue her comes up against her "reins-grabbing" nature. Will he ever be able to master Lady Kate? Will he ever be able to oust another man from her heart? And, despite Kate's penchant for disaster, will he be able to save her life and his own? Enjoy this delicious romance that will carry you back to the Regency period in English history, where manners were dictated by strict rules of fashion. It is the Jane Austen era, populated by gentlemen and ladies of leisure. These books are best enjoyed with a box of chocolates, and are guaranteed to enliven any boredom (ennui) that you may be experiencing!

This is the second book in my Regency trilogy, Three Rogues and Their Ladies. Though I write in many genres, Regency romances come the most easily. It is like writing about a fantasy world with all its set rules, settings, fashions, speech, etc. These things have been stored in my mind since age twelve when I read my first Georgette Heyer.About the Author:
G. G. Vandagriff is a traditionally published author who has recently gone indie. She loves the Regency period, having read Georgette Heyer over and over since she was a teen. G. G. is already at work on her next Regency romance and plans on writing at least a trilogy. She also has a great many fans of her earlier books, particularly the award-winning The Last Waltz and The Only Way to Paradise, who are anxious to read sequels! And her mystery fans are always urging her to write another book featuring her wacky genealogical sleuths, Alex and Briggie.
Obviously, G. G. likes to genre hop! In addition to her fiction, she has written two nonfiction works. And she writes a twice-monthly column for the on-line magazine Meridian as well as being a guest columnist for the Deseret News.
She studied writing at Stanford University and received her master's degree at George Washington University. She lives with her husband, David, a lawyer and a writer, on the bench of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. From her office she can see a beautiful valley, a lake, and another mountain range. She and David have three grown children and three wondrous grandchildren.
After playing with, reading to, and doing crafts with her grandchildren, her favorite thing is traveling. She goes to Italy once a year for medicinal purposes (and research--read The Only Way to Paradise). Her favorite classic authors are Tolstoy, Charlotte Bronte, and Jane Austen. Her favorite contemporary authors are A. S. Byatt, John Fowles, Marisa de los Santos, Emily Giffin, and Candice Hern.
