Dark Side of Paradise
Copyright © 2005
by Connie Crow

Meg Morton has spent a week in Paradise. She's met the man of her dreams. She can imagine spending the rest of her life with him — if she doesn't have to send him to prison first. — from the publisher

Smoothly written, luxuriantly vivid, and not too deep, The Dark Side of Paradise is the perfect accompaniment to a lo-oo-ong bubble bath. — Joy Calderwood, Reviewer's Choice Reviews

Moonlight Fire
Copyright © 2004
by Connie Crow

Corinna McGinnis joins an Army column as a laundress to earn the land bonus offered, to have a place of her own. Her world collides with Captain Geoffrey Humbolt, from a very old, aristocratic family, who is smarting from being rejected by a fickle fiancée. Their instant attraction pulls them together against all odds. They overcome class prejudice and betrayal to build a life together, defying the "social rule" that a lowly laundress could never be good enough for an officer to love... — from the publisher

A thrilling story that showed how hard life was. A very good read... — Détra Fitch of Huntress Book Reviews

An exciting trip back in time — convincing in its detail and inspiring in its imagination... — Sandy Cummins of Writers Exchange, 4 stars

The reader becomes engrossed in the adventure, feeling more a participant in history than an observer... — Carol Durfee of Romance Communications

No Place for a Lady
Copyright © 2008
by Connie Crow
Awe-Struck e-Books

Lady Janette Dupree wants to go home; she wants to help her brother re-establish their family in Paris after Napoleon's defeat. But a bullet through their town house window, made it clear she's not safe yet. Wounded, she must accede to her brother's wishes and return to England; a noble exile-again. American diplomat, Andrew Delong must secure vital trade treaties with England if the shaky new America is to survive as a nation. His patriotic heart beats strong; but he is completely distracted when he meets the charming French noblewoman taking up residence with his aunt and uncle, the Duke of Guilworth. They must find a way to balance personal happiness against duty to allow them to find the happiness they both deserve. — from the publisher

No Place For a Lady is a unique historical romance. Very few novels deal with the fate of exiled French aristocrats. Drew and Janette are a natural pairing in the insular English society. Both are outsiders. Both are from countries not well loved by the English. I can understand the attraction. My only disappointment was with the ending. This is clearly the first book in a series and it was challenging to be happy for Drew and Janette with the rest of the plot so unresolved. — Fallen Angel Reviews, 3 ANGELS
