In this final volume of Patricia Veryan's Tales of the Jewelled Men, the eight young gentlemen who make up Rossiter's Preservers are reunited for a final battle against the evil Squire and his League of Jewelled Men. Through five volumes, these heirs of London's families of Quality have just barely fought off the League's attempts to have each of them killed, arrested or disinherited. They stand in the way of the League's nefarious master plan: to oust King George II and install themselves as leaders of a new republic. It is a plot so dangerous that the League members have succeeded in keeping their identities secret even from each other, and so daring that Rossiter and his followers have thus far been unable to prove its existence to the authorities. In the midst of marshalling their forces against the League, leaders Jamie Morris and August Falcon have another score to settle: Jamie has long adored August's delicate, beautiful sister Katrina. For just as long, August - with threats of a duel to support him - has denied Jamie the right to court her. Can August continue to oppose the match or, with the help of Gwendolyn Rossiter, will he learn the strength of true love?

"A worthy successor to Georgette Heyer at her very best," says the Chattanooga Times of Patricia Veryan, whose latest gem in The Tales of the Jeweled Men introduces perhaps her most vibrant and resourceful heroine to date. Young Ruth Allington is a woman in exceptionally dire straits. Her father, brother, and husband have died, leaving her with a disgraced family name, an estate in debt, and two small nephews to support. Her few assets include a quick mind, a superb artistic ability, and her new friendship with the generous–and crafty–Gwendolyn Rossiter... Ask Me No Questions follows Time's Fool and Had We Never Loved in The Tales of the Jeweled Men.

The Regency novels of Patricia Veryan have established her as a “worthy successor to Georgette Heyer at her very best,” says The Chattanooga Times–a writer whose warmth, style, and storytelling magic are unsurpassed. Publisher’s Weekly called her novel, Some Brief Folly, “an infectious entertaining tale of bygone days.” Now, in Married Past Redemption, Ms. Veryan carries on this splendid tradition with the story of lovely Lisette Van Lindsay. When the established Van Lindsay family is threatened with financial collapse, a mariage de convenance is arranged for Lisette with the seemingly cold and brusque Justin Strand, a man who has great wealth, but whose family background is less than admirable. A dutiful daughter, Lisette agrees to wed the cold-hearted Strand, but not without many tears and regrets. After the marriage, one of her past suitors, the charming James Garvey, continues to pursue her. Garvey’s interest in her, combined with the interference of the gossiping London society, sets in motion a train of events that keeps the newly wedded couple at odds and nearly causes a profound tragedy...

The author of five superbly entertaining Regency novels, Patricia Veryan has been proclaimed "a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer at her very best" (The Chattanooga Times). Now, in her sixth novel, Feather Castles, Patricia Veryan gives us another sparkling Regency full of drama and romance as she unfolds the spellbinding adventures and apparently star-crossed love of the soon-to-be-married Miss Rachel Strand and a man whose name she does not even know. It is dusk on the ruined battlefields of Waterloo. In a carriage slowly making its way across the desolation is Rachel Strand, fiancée to the rich and powerful Claude Sanguinet, who is accompanying her friend and teacher Sister Maria Evangeline in a desperate search for one man among the thousands who lie wounded. Before they can find that man, they come across a valiant young solider who, though badly wounded, saves them from plunderers–a man who cannot remember his name, or even his nationality. So begins a riveting tale that takes us to both sides of the English Channel, from elegant drawing rooms and a magnificent sinister country estate to riotous taverns and hostelries...
