recording, I remembered hearing her beautiful voice on a radio program with Marlene Banks, author of Ruth s Redemption, Son of a Preacherman, and Greenwood and Archer Arrangements were made in haste, and my step mother thought one attendant sufficient And your father, the duke, would allow you to be transported in this manner I m astounded, Lady Madeline She balled her fist beneath her book My lord, I am the duke s daughter Should I ask for proof of your peerage I never seek for anyone to prove themselves I wait for their character to be revealed Lord Devonshire shrugged It seems odd to allow a cherished daughter to travel far from home with little regard Madeline s Protector, 19A scarlet cloth Has she been deceived Is she on a mission she knows nothing of As the carriage approaches further to her destination, her wonderment is portrayed Is she going to, or from Surrounded by highwaymen, their coach eases its comfort.Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place

inheritance He feels guilty for receiving his title and she seeks to avoid fear of her prior life at Avington Manor A marriage of convenience.About Vanessa RileyWelcome to my World Christian RegencyWriter of Christian Regency FictionThe Regency and Victorian eras have always been a magnetizing draw for Vanessa Riley Even as she worked to complete her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, she made time for renaissance fairs and any novel or cinematographic work depicting these genteel societies of old Perhaps, the attraction arises from the kinship she feels with the period being brought up in the restrictive Southern Bible Belt with its stringent definitions of decent behavior and life expectations.Perhaps the common denominator to this appeal is her own thirty day Christian courtship or even the arranged marriages of her uncles each is emblematic of the nuptials of those earlier times.A technology muse like Dr Vanessa Riley is probably not the immediate choice to write about haute ton English society set in the 1800 s With her most recent published work being Reducing Deformation by Phase Manipulation, the common visceral reaction is that Providence has given another mule a voice to tell His story Nevertheless, this mule uses her determined spirit and dogmatic tenacity to discover the hidden nuances of a character making him believable, her human and both ready to be used of God.Vanessa holds a doctorate in mechanical engineering and a masters in industrial engineering and engineering management from Stanford University She also earned BS and MS in mechanical engineering from Penn State University She has been a radio anchorwoman and church announcer She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers Association, Romance Writers of America, and Specialty RWA Chapters The Beaumonde, Faith, Hope, Love Chapter, and the Georgia Chapter.Today, Vanessa juggles mothering a eight year old, her seventeenth wedding anniversary,
