A surprisingly deep story where the romantic love story isn't the only relationship that grows and developes... 'Goodreads' on Lady Savage
Lady Savage
Classic Regency Romances Book #22
    Preparing to sail from Jamaica to England, Savina Roxeter knows she should be looking forward to marrying her betrothed and settling into a quiet and comfortable life among the ton, but she can only despair at the thought of leaving the lush and beautiful island she loves for the staid confines of London society. Once on the high seas, however, Savina’s thoughts turn only to survival, as their ship is commandeered and she and her party are left stranded on a primitive island with meager provisions and little hope of rescue.

    Determined not to succumb to their misfortune, the group set about assessing their surroundings and preparing for the rigorous challenge of the days and nights ahead. And while her imperious fiancé, his viperish sister, and even her own father bemoan the harsh conditions, Savina thrives as she becomes more attuned to the pulse and rhythm of nature— and the powerful desire she feels in the company of her fiancé’s secretary, Anthony Heywood.

    As the two are inexorably drawn together in this primal paradise, Savina casts aside her notions of impropriety and allows herself to respond to Anthony’s elemental strength and innate understanding of what’s truly important. And as the promise of a new and passionate future with Anthony becomes impossible to ignore, she will come to discover that surrendering to their burgeoning love may be the only rescue she truly needs . . .

'NEW' Historical Mystery from Victoria Hamilton!

First in a NEW series!
A Gentlewoman's
Guide to Murder

Scandal and slayings among Regency London's elite

The shocking murder of Sir Henry Claybourne leaves Regency London shaken and horror-struck. But for genteel spinster Miss Emmeline St. Germaine, the crime slices far too close to home.

Just hours before the knight's death she held a dagger to him, threatening him to stay silent as she rescued a scullery maid he had procured
for his pleasure.

Did the man— or woman— who murdered the knight know of her visit? Her secret identity at risk, her reputation and life in jeopardy, Emmeline must solve the crime or face scandalous exposure and ruination, or worse— the hangman's noose— for a crime she did not commit.

Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review

"[An] outstanding series launch. ... Hamilton expertly balances the page-turning detection with the
story of a  hypocritical society where women, whether they are scullery maids or orphans, rarely get
to make their own decisions.  "―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
