Eden Ainsley returns to England in the depths of winter. On a snowy night before Christmas, Mr. Noel Hadleigh strides into her home with a foundling child in his arms. Mr. Hadleigh admires the calm, capable widow and cannot deny she arouses his interest in more ways than one. But Eden cannot risk a scandalous affair, even though she offers her unexpected guest a bed for the night.

Who does the babe belong to, and why was he left in the snow? Why is Eden so committed to finding his mother, and why does Mr Hadleigh make a promise to return and then disappear without word?

“Leigh D’Ansey has done it again with this delightful Regency Romance. The characters, the plot, the descriptions – and the action, all pull together to create this fast-paced novella. I love this author’s prose. Her dialogue and descriptions make me stop and reread the lines, for the sheer pleasure of living the moment again. Believable characters and lively conversations abound. The reality and allure of the Regency period never leaves the page. Please read it – you’ll love it.” – Deryn Pittar:, 5 star Amazon review.

Regency romance books by Leigh D'Ansey
Book Three in my Northbrdige Bride series will be released before Christmas 2021.

The 'Tangled' series is a set of three anthologies by Jen Yates, Leigh D'Ansey and Caroline Bagshaw.

Leigh D’Ansey writes romantic stories set in the Regency era. Technically, the Regency era lasted from 1811-1820, but writers have a fair bit of leeway around those dates. Leigh creates authentic characters who are flawed, intense, passionate and sexy. Her Regency books include fiction and non-fiction. ‘The Beaumont Betrothal’ – Book 2 in the Northbridge Bride series – took second place in the 2020 Romance Writers of New Zealand (RWNZ) 2020 Koru Long Romance award. If you love reading Regency Romance, or maybe you have always aspired to write Regency Romance, take a look at Leigh’s BOOKS page. 

Leigh is also one of The Three Quills, sharing her love of the Regency era with three anthologies of short Regency Romance. The Tangled series will transport you into the Regency worlds of Stannesford, Northbridge, and Hunterlaw. Come along and enjoy three very different romantic journeys with Jen Yates, Leigh D’Ansey, and Caroline Bagshaw. Click on the link to learn more about The Three Quills.

Excerpt from a review of the Beaumont Bethrothal

“The story sizzles with barely repressed sexuality. In fact the heat fair pops off the page and kept me reading into the night! Lyrically and tastefully written this Regency novel is accurate in respect of the lifestyle and language of the time and it conjured up lots of lovely imagery for me! I loved it.” – Lyndsay Campbell, Amazon Reviewer of The Beaumont Betrothal. Click here to purchase your copy from Amazon.
