About the Author
Lincoln Tuvelais is a rabid Jane Austen fan and devoured Austen’s books many times. Georgette Heyer was a capable successor and Lincoln happily read and re-read her way through all of Georgette’s books.
A voracious reader of clean regency romance novels, Lincoln discovered that it was almost impossible to find a Regency romance to satisfy her need for a historically accurate, engrossing tale with engaging characters.
After much soul-searching, it became clear that someone had to address the needs of clean Regency romance readers. So, Lincoln succumbed to the madness that compels otherwise normal people to write novels.
A self-proclaimed nerd, Lincoln loves throwing herself into research. But, a great novel isn’t just a travelogue. Lincoln knows that great characters drive great stories. Her three-dimensional sympathetic characters create memorable romances.
Lincoln Tuvelais is retired and living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is already working on a new book, due to be released late 2021.
