Meredith Bond is running a contest – and you can win a copy of one of the Regency Romances in her Merry Men Quartet Series!
The Merry Men Quartet recounts the stories of four friends and their paramours, each with an intriguing past, trying to find their way—and discovering romance—among the salons and secrets of Regency England.
The series begins in alluring India (in An Exotic Heir), through the eyes of Cassandra Renwick, who has escaped to her parents in Calcutta to get away from society. But Calcutta provides her with another challenge—the intensely handsome Anglo-Indian Julian Ritchie, who is intent at getting revenge for the snubs and slights he has had to endure. Julian determines to get his revenge by making his boss’s newly arrived daughter fall in love with him. What he doesn’t realize is that love—and revenge—can go both ways.
Julian and Cassandra’s story moves from the colorful palaces of India to the cultured drawing rooms of Regency London and intertwines with the stories of three Regency gentlemen, and their adventures (romantic and otherwise). Lord Merrick (Merry to his close friends) and his good friends Sinclair Stratton, Lord Reath (known as Sin), and St. John Fotheringay-Phipps (known to all simply as Fungy), are there to help Julian and be helped—each to his own intriguing match.
The challenge for the dashing Sin (in A Rake’s Reward) is the outspoken and very determined American, Sarah Whately, who will do anything to find a treasure her grandfather said was hidden in their family estate that Sin won at cards when he was young. The kind nobleman Merry (in The Merry Marquis) must help the shy but incredibly talented Spanish pianist, Teresa Seton, find her way in society while overcoming the tragedies of his own past. And the foppish, funny Fungy (in A Dandy in Disguise) has to repeatedly rescue the spirited and naïve Rose Grace, who is just learning the ropes of society after growing up on an archeological site in Greece.
Each of the stories, a complete tale by itself, blends romance, adventure and intrigue— and a dash of fun—with outsiders to Regency society trying to adjust to its manners and mores.

Excerpt from Besotted:
Regan was just too damn alluring in that dress for him to accept that he couldn’t have her if he wanted her.
He was an idiot. He should have told her years ago. He should have told everyone. Despite the tongue- lashing he was silently giving himself, Tyler was certainly no fool. “The professor” to his friends, he was generally serious and professional. He had the smarts necessary to obtain both an MBA and a law degree, and he was now CEO of LHRE and on hiatus from one of the fastest growing tech companies in the country. He kept his cool in general, but again and again he behaved like an idiot around Regan.
Since that damn frog almost thirty years ago, he had loved no one but Regan. Sometimes they made it work together, like in high school, but most times not. His feelings were unchanged, but something always stopped him from declaring his love and asking her to do the same. This time it was something insurmountable.
And yet Tyler couldn’t stay away. He was the proverbial moth to the flame, flirting with disaster every time he flirted with her. He had promised to stay away, to keep her safe,but the attraction was undeniable. Yep, prize idiot.
Returning to the ballroom after the latest threats, Tyler briefly considered sharing the conversation, coming clean with Regan and perhaps moving their relationship forward. He was at a fork in the road but remained silent, Tyler knew he was on the wrong path but couldn’t summon the will to fix it. Not only were his problems unsolveable, but she was involved with Brandon. Tyler felt hopeless.
He was preoccupied just as Regan accused, but Tyler tried to give Regan the attention she deserved. He failed miserably until Regan suggested they just leave. That got his attention. Who knew when he would hold her in his arms again.
“Come dance with me again. It would be a crime to waste that dress.”
Encircling Regan in his arms, his body responded to her nearness, even as his mind worried over the earlier texts. He was unaware of his hand stroking her back, fingers lightly skimming over her bare skin. He wasn’t thinking clearly when he pulled her close or when he dropped kisses on her hair. He wasn’t paying attention, just acting on instinct, Regan was responding, her breath growing uneven, her hands clinging to his shoulders.

I am eating a piece of grilled white asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, drizzled with melted manchego cheese and coated in crushed pistachio, when my friend and co-worker Josh ruins my culinary orgasm by bringing up my honeymoon.
More specifically, my lack of a honeymoon.
And all I can do is grunt.
“I’m just saying,” he says with a sigh as he waves his bacon-wrapped, goat-cheese-stuffed date around on its toothpick like he’s the conductor of the Boston Pops doing a tapas bar gig, “you married a freaking billionaire. You deserve a honeymoon.”
“It’s not about what Amanda does or doesn’t deserve,” Carol insists on my behalf. As I chew, I give her a look that either says thank you or is so indecent, I need a cigarette and a fan, because damn, that asparagus is good.
“What is it about?”
“It’s about what they want. I mean, my God, Josh! Andrew bought her an estate as a wedding gift. I think he’s got all the good-husband bases covered.”
“Pfft. That? He’s a billionaire! That’s to be expected.”
“You’re pooh-poohing my husband’s gift to me? An estate in Weston, Massachusetts? It’s one of the most expensive zip codes in the country,” I say, parroting his affect.
“Hello? Billionaire? For him, that’s like buying a cheap condo behind the railroad tracks in Clinton. Declan bought Shannon an entire coffee chain.”
“This isn’t a competition,” I say, alarm making my pinot noir taste like vinegar.
“And he managed to give her a nice honeymoon in Hawaii.”
I lean in. “Define nice. Because those two still refuse to talk about their honeymoon.”
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down
