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.”
On the EXTRAS page today, a visit to the London Pantheon.
Among various notable events which took place there, the most bizarre is probably the exhibition of Lunardi’s balloon – shown fully inflated inside the Pantheon shortly after his 1784 successful 50 mile flight.
“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.”

Hazard by Stella Riley
The dice game, Hazard was immensely popular with Georgian gamblers.
However, if you’re planning to play in one of the less respectable houses – or even a hell – it’s worth taking a quick course in the correct lingo.
You wouldn’t want to be thought a flat or a bubble because this might result in you being targeted by a mace cove or a nickum – which, in turn would almost certainly see you thoroughly dished up or, worse still, lurched.
