TheEarlandtheLadyGeologist FINAL.2.12.21750x1125 (1)I'm delighted to have as my guest today my friend Alissa Baxter, a South African romance writer who has written a trilogy of sweet Regency romances with heroines who have unconventional interests. The first, The Earl's Lady Geologist, has just been released. 

Kirkus Reviews called it, "A playful and poignant historical romance that’s certain to please fans of the genre."

Bestselling author Mimi Mathews said, “A gentle Regency romance, full of sweetness and intelligence. Alissa Baxter’s writing is period perfect.”

An Amazon reviewer said, "At times touching, at others humorous with snappy dialogue between the main characters, this was an entertaining and satisfying read from beginning to end."

There's also a fun video for the book.
