HUZZAH! A B.R.A.G. Medallion for THE PLAYER!

I’m thrilled to announce that THE PLAYER has been honoured with a B.R.A.G. (Book Readers’ Appreciation Group) Medallion.

The B.R.A.G. review process is lengthy and detailed and, of the books submitted, only 20% to 25% are awarded a medallion.

Here is what the B.R.A.G, reviewer had to say:-
“This is a GREAT novel. It is the best novel I’ve read for indieBRAG. I am pleased to give it a very high rating. I have found a new historical romance author. THANK YOU. I love this book so much I had to get a paperback copy as well to have and to hold. One of the most fun stories I have ever read. I love, love, love this book and recommend it for a B.R.A.G. medallion.”

GENTLEMAN’S PISTOLS

A cased pair of gentleman’s percussion pistols by S. W. Berry of Woodbridge – circa 1845 and all completely original.  Everything a gentleman would need; percussion caps, powder flask, mould for making lead shot … and none of it ever used.

Even the label inside the lid of the case is original  and apparently this is rare.  We know it’s original because it is embossed – copies are not.


The amount of detail in the engraving is incredible. Pretty things, aren’t they?

After my two 17th century swords – one cavalry and one naval – pistols seemed a logical step. For those who don’t recall the swords, here they are.

HAZARD a Desert Isle Keeper at AAR

“Hazard is a fabulous addition to this thoroughly enjoyable series of Georgian romances.  Ms. Riley’s writing is sharply focused and elegant, her characters are strongly drawn, the chemistry between the leads is undeniable and both romances are brought to immensely satisfying conclusions. It gets a very strong recommendation.”
