B.R.A.G.ing Again!

I’m thrilled to announce that THE BLACK MADONNA (Roundheads & Cavaliers Book One) has been awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion. Although this is my sixth such medallion it’s every bit as exciting as the first one!

The IndieBRAG reviewer said:-

The Black Madonna is so fine a work that it bears comparison only to the very best of historical fiction.

Stella Riley has a commanding grasp of a complex and seldom detailed period of history and convincingly inserts intriguing characters into actual historical events. In Luciano del Santi she has created a fascinating and seductive character worthy of a series.”

A TRICK OF FATE

BRANDON BROTHERS Book One – MAX
Available for PRE-ORDER from Amazon NOW!

Also from Kobo and Barnes & Noble.

Max Brandon made his debut in Cadenza (Rockliffe Book 6). Now he is receiving bills for services he never ordered and goods he did not buy.  (In 250 years’ time, this will be called identity theft – but, it not being among Mother Shipton’s many prophecies, Max doesn’t know that.)  What he does know is that he is going to catch the man responsible whatever the cost. This leads to a haphazard chase involving ruined abbeys, a hunt for hermits, a grotesque portrait … and a love story which, but for an odd trick of fate, might never have been given a second chance.

A TRICK OF FATE will be released on October 25th

The Rockliffe series was recommended in THE TIMES!

Yes – really!
Here is what Hilary Rose had to say:-

Are you a Georgette Heyer fan? Are you sad that she’s unlikely to write another Regency romance, on account of her having died in 1974? Well, I have exciting news: Stella Riley’s The Parfit Knight; honestly, it’s as good as Georgette. I read all five books in the series back to back on the way to work and loved them all. I finished the last one while actually walking over London Bridge, because I couldn’t put it down. Read it now. Thank me later.


Wow! I certainly never expected this!

Another B.R.A.G. Medallion!

I’m delighted to announce that THE  MARIGOLD  CHAIN
has been awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion.

B.R.A.G. stands for Book Readers Appreciation Group and of the titles submitted to it for consideration, only 20-25% achieve a medallion.  The Marigold Chain now joins  A Splendid Defiance in gaining this honour.

“A very enjoyable read. The writer has a talent that makes even a complicated historical story with many characters smooth reading. I definitely recommend this book and look forward to more from this author.”

 

A Readers’ Favorite Award for THE PLAYER!

THE PLAYER (Rockliffe #3)
has earned a 5 star Readers’ Favourite Award.

“An incredible, page turning historical romance, The Player held me captive until I had finished the last page. I found it difficult to put down; and when I did, it called me to go back to the stage set by Stella Riley and wait for the curtain to rise.”

Available as ebook and paperback from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Smashwords.  Also in audio from Amazon and Audible.

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.”

A SPLENDID DEFIANCE HAS EARNED A B.R.A.G. MEDALLION!


I’m thrilled to announce that A SPLENDID DEFIANCE has been honoured with a B.R.A.G. Medallion – an award given by readers and only achieved by 20/25% of the books submitted. Never having offered my work for consideration before, this is my very first B.R.A.G. Medallion and is therefore particularly exciting!
