Hi, Everyone! Re-releasing my Valerie King Sweet Regency backlist has been a long time coming, but I wanted to share some thoughts with you as well as my process about re-releasing my Sweet Regency line…

WICKED AND WONDERFUL, which I chose to publish first, was my final sweet Regency novel for Kensington Publishing Corp. and came to market in September of 2005. 

I knew I didn’t want to simply toss the books onto the sea of backlist releases without addressing the need to make improvements, though usually minor ones, to each book as a whole.

And all subsequent books will be handled the same way.  Many thanks to Carol Webb, of Bella Media Management, for the terrific cover concepts for WICKED AND WONDERFUL and the rest of the books soon to be released.

My Regency romance work was a dynamic part of my life for twenty years at the end of which, in 2005, Romantic Times honored me with a career achievement award in Regency Romance.

Of course that same year, Kensington ended its long history as a publisher of the genre and my journey took a new turn.  As many of you know, I made a huge shift to writing sensual paranormal romances as Caris Roane and you can learn more about this work at  For a sweet Regency reader, these books may not be of interest to you, which I understand perfectly.

And here’s some great news! Last summer, while I was preparing to launch the backlist re-release, I wrote a novella as a sequel to WICKED AND WONDERFUL, called WONDERFUL HARRIET.  To learn more about WONDERFUL HARRIET:  CLICK HERE!!!

And just for fun, here’s the wonderful cover for WONDERFUL HARRIET!
