The Drama Of Desire…

A dashing widower with a rakish charm, Baron Cartwright knows all too well the power—and the price—of temptation. So when he learns that his theatrical-minded son is making a fool of himself over an actress, he wastes no time: He plans a house party at which a play will be performed by the guests—the perfect setting in which to deal with this Jezebel. But the baron is in for a shock when he meets the lady in question. Memories…and desire…come flooding back. For beguiling Diane Runyard is the only woman who ever captured his heart. Once, he walked away from her to please his family. Now he finds himself in the unenviable position of competing for her affections with his own son! Will true love win the day when passion and intrigue take center stage?

About Jeanne Savery:

Jeanne Savery has lived and travelled in Great Britain with her spouse, an American Professor of British Politics. An American herself, she is descended from the English (via her father) and the Scots (via her mother).

She first read the Regency Romances of Georgette Heyer while living in Sidcup, Kent. She reread them while living in Whitstable, Kent. The dialogue was charming, but the detail was forbidding: No mistakes! That's the watchword.

For library research, she amassed (and read) a library of diaries, letters, memoirs, yearbooks, etc., from the era. For field research, she (and her spouse) repeatedly crisscrossed the island of Great Britain. Their two daughters fondly recall a family jaunt (with bed and breakfast) in August, 1973: London to Pembroke to Chester to Carlisle to Stirling to Edinburgh to Hawick ... to London.

She published her first Regency Romance in 1991. Since then, she has published more than a dozen novels as well as more than a half-dozen novellas.

She has received the Reader's Choice Award and been awarded the Holt Medallion. She is a member of Novelists, Inc. and Romance Writers of America.
