Lucy Ashford, an English Studies lecturer, has always loved literature and history, and from childhood one of her favourite occupations has been to immerse herself in historical romances. She studied English with history at Nottingham University, and the Regency is her favourite period. Lucy has written several historical novels, but this is her first Mills and Boon.
She lives with her husband in an old stone cottage in the Peak District, near to beautiful Chatsworth House and Haddon hall, all of which gave her a taste of the magic of life in a bygone age.
Her garden enjoys spectacular views over the Derbyshire hills, where she loves to roam and let her imagination go to work on her latest story.
