Arabella writes Regency romances and finds that although times change, people do not. In matters of love and happiness, men and women want the same thing and experience the same problems. In this self-help book, each chapter is prefaced by (and sprinkled with) an inspiring quote from one of Jane Austen’s timeless novels or from her own letters to friends and family. Jane Austen had an unerring eye for what made people tick, and her observations on life, relationships, love, and romance have endured.

I have been steeped in Regency writers since I was a teenager. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, I read 'em all! I love writing Regency romances because they are romantic, fun and enable me to create feisty heroines and hunky heroes. I hope you'll enjoy my stories!
