Regency Novella – Dangerous Lords Book 5.
It’s Book Five in the Dangerous Lords series with this fabulous holiday novella!
Childless widow Eleanor Fitzherbert has resigned herself to a life alone because most unmarried gentlemen wish for an heir. But after a young sweep gets stuck in the Duke of Broadstairs’ chimney, and a handsome viscount comes to his rescue, surprising things begin to happen.
It is never too late to fall in love!
Ms Andersen, best selling novelist’s Eleanor Fitzherbert’s Christmas Miracle is a delightful Regency romance novella.
Eleanor, a childless widow, is content living with her brother-in-law and sister, the Duke and Duchess of Broadstairs.
Nash, a young chimney sweep climbs up the flu and loses his way. Viscount Hayworth, a widower, who is visiting the duke, helps Eleanor rescue the child.
I recommend this charming tale of a heroine reluctant to re-marry an ideal hero and an irresistible child who deserve a happy ever after ending.
Very sweet story just long enough for a short read. Enjoyed the characters and the writing. Happily ever after for all.

A bitter man, pirate Jack Shadow Stirling cares for little but his ship and his crew. But disaster strikes the Golden Orion; driven leagues off course in a storm, his men begin dropping like flies from typhus. Forced to anchor in a bay on the West Africa coast to see to his men and mend damage to the hull, Jack and three of his crew go in search of fresh water and meat to shore up their dwindling supplies. What he finds surprises him – an English lady, whom he likens to a rare orchid, is treating the sick from a nearby village, while her botanist brother, Alexander Bromley, searches for specimens.
Startled by pirates invading her small camp, Lydia Bromley snatches up her pistol and aims it at the tall, dark-haired, handsome devil who leads them. Unfazed, he grins at her and warns her that should she shoot him with a muff pistol, she would fail to kill him. But he would be annoyed.
Thus begins Lydia’s journey, discovering the love and romance she’d thought denied her… with a pirate!

Rakes are intent on something a young debutante must never give them… their virtue!
Armed with this advice from her aunt, Letitia Bromley embarks on her first Season in London. Fresh from the country, she is intent on a romantic adventure after reading the diaries of her great-great Aunt Lydia, who sailed the high seas with a pirate. But when Letty’s kind patroness begs for her help to right a wrong done to her dead husband, Letty can only respond to the lady’s distress. Can it be true that the rakish Brandon Cartwright spies for the French? Danger lurks, and Letty becomes unsure whom to trust. Her head urges her to be sensible, to go home to the man everyone in her village expects her to marry, but her heart says otherwise.
Declared the family’s black sheep by his father after a tragedy, Brandon is drawn into the spying business. He has had little regard for his life, taking on dangerous assignments, until circumstances change when he becomes involved with a stubborn young lady who is determined to help her chaperone. Brandon can’t help but admire Letty for her bravery and compassion, but while he’s intent on keeping her safe, he has no intention of drawing her into his disreputable life.
Once he sees her safely on her way back to Cumbria, he can pick up the threads of the life he lived before she came into it… or will he follow his heart – and her?
Once a Wallflower Series
Presenting Miss Leticia
Introducing Miss Joanna
Announcing Miss Theodosia
InD’Tale Magazine. “A beautiful beginning to a new series, “Presenting Miss Letitia” will have regency fans clamoring for the next novel!”
Debutante Letitia Bromley is about to embark upon her first London Season. Freshly arrived from a village in Cumbria, she longs for romance, especially after having read the diaries of her great-aunt Lydia, who sailed the high seas with her pirate lover. Letitia is initially chaperoned by her Aunt Edith, a woman who has some rather old-fashioned ideas that sometimes drive Letitia a little nuts, so she’s relieved when her family friend Lady Arietta assumes the role.
When Letty’s new patroness enlists her help to right a wrong done to her dead husband, Letty cannot refuse. This quest brings her closer to Brandon Cartwright, a dangerous man who might also be a spy for the French.
The romance between Brandon and Letty unfolds at a slow but steady pace, drawing in the reader by showing the growing connection between both characters. The spy angle is interesting and gives an extra dimension to the story. In contrast to the love story, the suspense is spot-on and fast-paced, right from the start. The historical details and setting are described quite well, and it is easy for the reader to picture having traveled back in time to the past. A beautiful beginning to a new series, “Presenting Miss Letitia” will have regency fans clamoring for the next novel!
“This had me hooked in a big way , I didn’t want to leave the pages in case I missed something , daft I know .
Excellent book and characters.”
“Maggi Andersen has outdone herself with her new offering of “Once a Wallflower”. Presenting Miss Leticia is full of wonderful characters, dangerous situations and of course, a young lady trying to find herself amongst the society of London. Miss Leticia grew up in Hawkshead Village, Cumbria, with her Uncle Alford. He believed that Letty would fall in love with the squire’s son Geoffrey Verney and not crave the wonderous adventure to be found in London. But Letty had other ideas and her Aunt Edith decided to sponsor her for a season. How excited Letty was to be able to curtsy before the Queen and of course those magical gowns were going to be wonderous. But Aunt Edith had other ideas and took her to her seamstress that designed for older ladies. However, wearing her first dowdy gown, she happened across Brandon Cartwright, little knowing that this man would become involved with her in numerous adventures. These escapades would change not only her life, her families but Brandon’s as well. A great reading adventure.”

In hope of restoring his family, he has invited a German baroness who may become the new Duchess of Harrow, and her brother, as his guests. Andrew’s plans do not go to order. Were there three attempts made on his young son William’s life, or are they a string of amazing coincidences? Why would anyone want to harm William?

Miss Jenny Harrismith, the daughter of an impoverished baron from Yorkshire with six children, leaves home after a disagreement with her father, taking a position as governess to the Duke of Harrow’s two children.

As she fights to keep the duke’s son safe, she finds herself falling in love with his father.

This was such a sweet story, but I found it to be a lot more. Loved both Andrew and Jenny’s characters. I loved the mystery and love how Maggi Andersen’s other characters from her books make appearances. I have enjoyed reading her other stories and thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Book One in the exciting Dangerous Lords series.
Guy Fortescue comes to England to claim his inheritance, Rosecroft Hall, abandoned over thirty years ago when his father fled to France after killing a man in a duel. But England proves to be a dangerous place – someone wants Guy dead. As Guy seeks to discover who lies behind the attacks on his life, he arranges a faux betrothal with Miss Horatia Cavendish.
Unfortunately, things don’t go according to plan. An aspiring poet, Hetty proves to have a mind of her own but in spite of that, Guy finds her far too alluring.
Headstrong and lovely, Hetty agrees to the betrothal because it allows her to go to London where she can attend literary societies with her aunt. While her affection for Guy grows deeper, she must not forget the betrothal isn’t real. Guy will choose a bride from the beau monde – it will not be a colonel’s daughter from Digswell.
But Hetty is soon drawn in to Guy’s life, more and more, and not entirely against her will. He is handsome and brave, and the attraction between them is undeniable. Soon, she can no longer resist her desire for him and the fact that someone is out to kill him only feeds her innate protectiveness of the man she is betrothed to. As attempts are made on Guy’s life, Hetty and his sister ,Genevieve, work together to keep him alive, and a love that has been denied finally comes to fruition in the exciting conclusion.

THE MARQUESS MEETS HIS MATCH
Available in Paperback
Read FREE on UNLIMITED or buy for $0.99!
A sexy Georgian Romance as only bestselling author Maggi Andersen can deliver!
A country-bred girl, Kate Bancroft always intended to marry for love, like her parents. She wanted a husband who adored her, who would be her knight in shining armor. But her plans don’t go as she had hoped – suddenly, she finds herself married to a marquess, and her new husband an aloof stranger determined to keep his thoughts and feelings to himself.
It is the unfortunate truth that she and Lord St. Malin have been forced by circumstances to marry, and Kate is painfully aware that she is not the woman he would have chosen given a choice.
Robert makes it plain that marriage is merely for the procreation of an heir, and once that is achieved, he intends to continue in London living the life he enjoyed before he met her. Kate suspects Robert plans to tuck her away in the country, while he pursues his own interests, and she becomes determined not to let him have it all his own way.
A quiet battle ensues. Kate is left to wander the echoing corridors of St. Malin House, when she isn’t thrown into the midst of the mocking and clever Haute Ton. She’s not at all sure she likes them, as they live by their own rules, which seem rather shocking. She’s not at all sure she likes her new husband either, except for his brilliant blue eyes, the panther-like way he walks, and the smoldering expression in his eyes when he looks at her. He is a rake and does not deserve her love, but neither can she resist his searing touch.
Robert appears quite willing to do his duty, but Kate demands love and affection, and nothing less will do.
Can people from two worlds, and two ideals, find their happily ever after?
What a wonderful book.
A veritable delight to read and had me totally entranced by the characters,
The broody and stern Robert,
The confused but determined Kate ,
The enigmatic and teasing Southmore,
All playing perfect parts to bring fun and tension to this story .
I laughed , cried , huffed mainly at Robert , wow I wanted to shake that man .
A thrilling and addictive book that I read in one sitting , finding it very hard to put down ,and a definite 5 stars , I wish I could give it more .Maggie Whitworth

A Powerful Emotional Read!
THE MARQUESS MEETS HIS MATCH is a riveting read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

LADY FAITH TAKES A LEAP
“I enjoyed the story and characters, it was well written, and flowed wonderfully. I liked the little bumps and surprises that popped up along the way. A wonderful story!”
LADY HOPE AND THE DUKE OF DARKNESS
“I do wish to thank Miss Anderson for giving us the gift of her talent.” Amazon Reviewer.
THE SEDUCTION OF LADY CHARITY
“Ms. Andersen has created a wonderfully intriguing cast of characters. THE SEDUCTION OF LADY CHARITY can stand alone but readers might find themselves returning to the first book of the series just to see what they might have missed from Ms Andersen’s original stories.” InD’Tale Magazine
THE SCANDALOUS LADY MERCY
“Andersen writes an adventurous regency book that one wishes to keep reading, even after the story is done. This novel is part of a series but is a fantastic standalone work.” InD’Tale Magazine.
I have read, enjoyed and reviewed each of the 5 Regency Romance novels in this boxed set about 5 sisters who are, as the saying goes, as different as chalk and cheese, each with aan interesting, strong personality. The 5 heroes in these novels are memorable gentlemen.. During or after the Napoleonic Wars these brave gentlemen wre engaged in espionage by the government and tracked down criminals, murderers and spies. Each book in the series is a stand alone novel so it is unnecessary to read them in sequence. I am one of Ms Andersen’s fans and look forward to reading more of her romances that sweep me into a past with dashing beaux and belles
