About the author:
Always a voracious reader, Cathy Spencer cut her teeth on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Jane Austen, and Charlotte Brontë. She is married to a singer/actor/university teacher. He didn't actually say, "Marry me and see Canada" when he proposed, but that's practically what happened. They have lived on the west coast in Vancouver, on the east coast in St. John's, Newfoundland, in Calgary, and are currently living in Hamilton, Ontario.
Cathy has written a cozy mystery with an amateur sleuth set in the Rocky Mountain Foothills of Alberta. It's the first in the Anna Nolan series, entitled Framed for Murder. She's currently working on the sequel, Town Haunts. She's also written another historical romance set in England after the Napoleonic wars entitled The Marriage Market, plus two collections of short stories.

The Affairs of Harriet Walters, Spinster
Harriet Walters, a twenty-six year old spinster, is evicted from her home after the death of her father and sent to live with a persnickety aunt. Resigned to the thankless life of an unpaid companion, she yearns for romance with the local grammar school's history master, if only he were as interested in her as he is in the Roman occupation of England. Fate intervenes, however, when Harriet becomes an heiress. Leaving her small town home for the glittering attractions of London, Harriet meets several interesting new people, including a devilish young cad who wants to awaken her sensual side, and chooses an unconventional path to happiness and love.
Welcome to the Regency world, where life is slower, people are more courteous, and men and women court each other. So, pour yourself a cup of tea or chocolate, sit back in your chair, and enjoy an old-fashioned romance.
