Bianca Blythe is a USA Today bestselling author of historical regency romances. She will sometimes pen some of her historical mystery fiction under the pseudonym Camilla Blythe.

The author was born in Texas and went to Wellesley Colege from where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree. Bianca spent four years living in England where she was employed at a fifteenth-century caste even though she did not like that it did not have earls and dukes strutting about in Hessians.

According to the author, she got into writing when the cold and rainy British weather forced her to dash into a library. It was there that she read her first Julia Quinn novel and she has never looked back since. To this day she still looks out fondly, even when the rain is nothing less than a blustery downpour.

She would, later on, meet her husband in a library and the two then moved to California with its sun and sandy beaches. She still loves exploring historical sites and traveling across Europe.

Unlike many of her contemporaries, Bianca Blythe got into historical romance relatively late while she was in graduate school. Before she discovered romance, she was a huge reader of the classics and chick lit, particularly the works of Sophie Kinsella.
The author also used to read the works of the likes of Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse. In fact, she has said that one reason why she is a huge lover of regencies is that they invented Georgette Heyer’s interwar period.

During this time, she particularly loved Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Emily of New Moon,” which was perhaps the work that would have the largest impact on her. It perhaps had to do with the fact that the lead was the young girl who desired to become a novelist and ultimately achieved her dream.

As for her children’s fiction, Blythe has said that her father used to read to her a lot, particularly from the “Chronicles of Narnia” and the “Little House” series. She also used to love reading picture books and remembers reading “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs,” especially from the perspective of the wolf.

As an author, she likes telling stories of people that may have been portrayed negatively in literature.

During her later childhood years, Blythe had been homeschooled for a while and did not have access to a television until she was in high school. It was during this time that she voraciously read “Seventeen” magazines as she was very interested in popular culture.
It was during this time that she also went to study in Germany for a year and while she loved reading, she found German books too difficult to read. However, he loved reading the German versions of “Cosmopolitan” and “Glamour,” which she found easier to read than actual books.

While she no longer reads these magazines, she understands how important they were to her just like they would have been to have such works for Regency-era women who would have been very isolated.
It was for this reason that she write the advice and gossip-like pamphlets in the “Matchmaking for Wallflowers” series of novels.

Bianca Blythe’s “How to Capture a Duke” is the story of a bluestocking, wallflower woman past her prime and still unmarried at the age of 22.

Socially awkward and with blood-red hair and horrendous freckled skin, she had left London a fortnight following her debut.

She had gone to live in Yorkshire with her grandmother in a castle and tells everyone she is engaged to a “Captain Kingsley” that was on the continent fighting Napoleon.
But the war is long over and people are expecting her to get married to her fiance, particularly her ill grandmother who wants to leave her properly settled.

Meanwhile, she is happy to unearth Roman artifacts from the castle property and then document her many archeological findings.

In the meantime, Percival is heading to London and bringing with him an engagement ring and a bag full of jewels for a woman he has yet to meet. He became the Duke of Alfriston when his cousin was killed at Waterloo saving him.
In an interesting turn of events, Fiona is mistaken for a highwaywoman causing the driver to flee leaving behind his passenger who happens to be Percival.

“A Rogue to Avoid” by Bianca Blythe continues to follow the life and times of Lady Cordelia, who was introduced in the debut novel of the “Matchmaking for Wallflowers” series of novels.

She is a woman that is a product of her class and upbringing and is known for her icy demeanor. Still, while she knows the rule and tries to adhere to them, she has not yet found happiness or success in the marriage market.
The man she blames for her current situation is the Marquess of Rockport. Gerald Highgate is a man that has a strong dislike for Cordelia, which could be just as much as she despises him.

Through a series of misunderstandings and misadventures, Cordelia finds herself having to team up with Gerard in a dangerous situation. As they face shared dangers they come to respect each other.

Ultimately, they come to learn some shocking truths and that they have been lied to for a long time but are now wiser about who they can trust. It is a fun and wonderfully written book with great intrigue and a romantic storyline.

Bianca Blythe’s novel “Runaway Wallflower” is the story of an American bluestocking woman Louisa Charmichael. She had become a noblewoman when her brother had biome a duke and thereafter packed and shipped the family to London.
Louisa’s mother is very interested in finding a match for her. This is despite the fact that Louisa is being a very unconventional woman who loves marine biology and would rather swim with the fishes rather than go to balls with the elite of society.
All Louisa is interested in is trying to see if her underwater breathing gadget works as it should. What better way to test it than to become a stowaway on a ship headed for the Caribbean disguised as a man?

On the ship is the future Duke of Belmonte and ex-pirate Lord Rupert Haywood who has tried his best to get away from his corrupt father. He prefers to fight the French on the open sea and be in control of his own destiny as Captain of a ship.
However, one thing he could never have foreseen was being tied up in knots by the mysterious Mr. Thornton that boarded his ship at one of the American ports.
