The heavily-researched series When the Blood Is Up uses themes of found family, relatable misfits, and class differences to explore the Regency world of women’s boxing.
A Lady’s Revenge is a steamy regency romance about women’s boxing. Lady Lydia is an earl’s daughter set on revenge and John Arthur is a former prizefighter who wants to give his sister a better life. When these two meet, nothing goes to plan.
The Boxer and the Blacksmith continues with John Arthur’s best friend, and London’s Invincible Championess, Bess Abbott. As London’s undefeated women’s boxer, Bess Abbott has the scars—both inside and out—to prove it. But when one of her boxing students, Violet, needs protection, Bess Abbott’s rock hard heart cracks open. And when a handsome blacksmith comes along, giving her compliments and treating her, well, like a woman, Bess doesn’t know what to do.
A Lady’s Finder delves into another London subculture: the mollyhouse. Lady Agnes is a scandal thanks to her sister’s marriage to a prizefighter. Or rather, she should be. Suddenly, receiving attentions from the unpredictable Mr. Townsend, Lady Agnes finds herself believing he might love her and not her dowry. Or is she a means to an end as her family insists?
