    Thank you for such a great series, I love how you entangled the friends and families lives together. Your women characters are lovely and bold and I am glad you give woman in this time period a voice of their own.

    Loved reading the Stone Devil Duke.The story has a great plot with so many turns. Was wondering whether there is a story on Jason, Aggs’s brother?

    Hi K.J.Jackson.
    Just finished the book. I cannot praise this book enough, it keeps you on edge and literally holding your breath through out the whole reading. You are an amazing author.
    I am currently on a reading marathon of your books. 😊😊

    Stone Devil Duke was wonderful! So unlike other regency novels with a strong fighter heroine! Loved it! Are your books in libraries also?

    • kjkjackson says:

      Thanks so much for the kind words! It’s true, I like my heroines feisty 🙂 As for the whole collection, some libraries carry them, but it is quite hit or miss. I often do sales on them, and the best way to find out about them is by signing up for my VIP newsletter if you haven’t already: Link
      Have a great night!

      Hi Maggie-
      Fantastic-so glad you liked them. Yes, what would be #4, Worth of a Duke, actually starts a new set of three, the Lords of Fate series, but the main character is the Duke of Letson (remember him from My Captain, My Earl?). I like sets of three, even though this could have been a Hold Your Breath novel. And we see characters from the other two books pop on in on Worth of a Duke as well.

      And then the second one in this series will be out in just a few weeks (October 8).

      Check Worth of a Duke out here https://authorkjjackson.wordpress.com/k-j-jackson/my-writing/lords-of-fate-series/

      Have fun checking them out, and have a great weekend!

      Hi Cathy-
      I do too! (Love the strong women!) I know they are out of the “norm” for a traditional Regency, but that’s why I write them, because I like out of the “norm.” It took all kinds to create history 🙂

      Thanks for readying and liking!
