About this title


The anticipated follow-up to THE NATURALIST, a Regency romance described by as "a literary feast for any Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer fan...If you read one Traditional Regency this year let it be The Naturalist." Book One of the series The Hapgoods of Bramleigh, THE NATURALIST was also a finalist for Best Romance in the 2013 PNWA Literary Contest. In Book Two of the series, A VERY PLAIN YOUNG MAN takes up the story of Elfrida, the most beautiful of the Hapgood sisters, as well as the most practical. If she must marry eventually, she intends to choose a husband not with her eyes, nor even with her heart, but with her common sense. He must be respectable and steady--not given to gambling or wenching or idling like her scapegrace uncles. So naturally, Frederick Tierney, the rakish brother of her new brother-in-law, will never do. Not only is his chequered past not entirely in the past, but he is too handsome for his own good and takes delight in unsettling her. But when another offer comes her way which meets all of her supposed requirements, Elfrida finds choosing duty over desire not as simple as she imagined.

About the Author:

The Seattle Times called Christina Dudley's THE BERESFORDS "ingenious and entertaining" in its modern retelling of Jane Austen's MANSFIELD PARK, and Austenprose's Lisa Galek declares, "I would rank The Beresfords with some of the best Austen updates I've ever read or seen." Dudley's previous novel EVERLIVING was chosen as a Staff Favorite by the University of Washington Bookstore, whose reviewer described it as "spooky and romantic," while her debut was selected as a LoveWebRadio Book-of-the-Month and chosen Top Four of 2010 by At the urging of her readers, she penned MOURNING's sequel THE LITTLEST DOUBTS. For the younger readers, her MIA AND THE MAGIC CUPCAKES garnered a 2010 Zola Award for Best Children's Picture Book. Her latest venture is a series of traditional Regency romances, called "The Hapgoods of Bramleigh," of which THE NATURALIST (November 2013) is the first volume. A VERY PLAIN YOUNG MAN, the second volume, is expected Spring of 2014. When not writing, Dudley can be found crashing local books clubs, acting in Sunday school skits, and speaking for love or money to any large group that will have her. She also stuffs herself blogging for the Bellevue (WA) Farmers Market as the UrbanFarmJunkie. More than you ever wanted to know about her can be found at her eponymous website. She and her family live in Bellevue, Washington.
