Author Biography

Freelance editor and author Anjannette Conner lives in Texas with two of her four children and several adorable cats. She is also the proud "Gramms" of four equally adorable grandchildren. Blessed with a serious love of reading, she fell in love with the historical romance genre many years ago when her grandmother gave her some romance novels to read. When she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing, it was an easy decision to focus on the historical romance genre, and Mystery Lady and Defying a Duke are her first efforts. Free time is a rare gift, but when she manages to take time off, she loves spending it in Arkansas with her grandchildren, children, parents, and the grandmother who started it all.

Defying a Duke: Regency Heroes #1 by Anjannette Conner is a beautiful tale of love, duty and honor. The story follows Jordan Montgomery, an American heiress, who was blessed with older brothers who love her and want to protect her at all costs. And although she loves them, she has bigger dreams than just being a little wife to any man. She wants to find love and she wants to find adventure. This is why she leaves her family behind and travels to London where she gets what she wants and then some. She lands right in the middle of a deadly plot which she may never survive.

Caine Wakefield is the future Duke of Somerset; he saved the beautiful Jordan from danger and reluctantly took on the job as her protector. This pretty woman is too much of a distraction, she has a fire inside of her that he cannot ignore and there is nothing he can do to fight it. As he is fighting to keep her safe, he is also fighting to keep from falling for this woman who makes his heart sing.

This novel is brilliant. I finished it in one night and I simply loved it. Caine is so amazing. He is charismatic and charming and, boy, I just love him. Jordan is not your typical damsel in distress, she is a woman who knows her heart and she knows her limitations. That makes her human and that much more attractive. She is not hard headed and, together with Caine, she makes a lot of sense. This is definitely a series I would love to read. Five stars! It was great.
