About Mary Kingswood

Writing under the name of Mary Kingswood, the British author Pauline M Ross is well known for publishing historical romance novels. Using Mary Kingswood as a moniker for her historical based romance titles, her name has become synonymous with a particular brand of fiction. Previously Pauline M Ross would be well known for writing fantasy titles, many of which would feature a strong erotic and adult angle to them. Showing a clear sense of flair and imagination with these novels, she was celebrated for coupling character alongside well managed world-building.

The Mary Kingswood pseudonym has become well established over the years for a certain style of Regency novel. These books aren’t explicit in the same her Ross’s earlier novels are, but they’re still to be noted for not holding back when it comes to showing the more difficult aspects of the period. Showing clear attention to detail, she really manages to bring the era to life, allowing readers to feel as if they’re actually experiencing it. Delivering books that are extremely well researched, she perfectly understands what’s needed from the genre, entertaining and engaging readers in equal measure.

Creating highly compelling characters, she is well known for setting up long lasting protagonists who really make an impression upon the reader. This is something that she manages alongside well plotted stories that definitely reflect their period and time, evoking the era and what it was actually like. Compelling, she definitely understands how to keep her readers glued to the page too, continually coming back for more time and time again. There’s lots more books to come in the future as well, with plenty more titles planned for release upon the horizon.

Early and Personal Life

Starting out writing a Regency romance novel, Ross would grow up with a clear love of the form and what it had to offer. Her mother was very much a fan and follower of the novels of Jane Austen, and this would be something that she’d come to focus upon in the years to come. Travelling for some time, she would gain a lot of experience and personal insight prior to taking up writing full-time.

Putting her ideas down to paper, she would begin to put her thoughts down on the page, allowing her imagination to finally come alive. This would develop throughout the years, letting her become the writer that she currently is today, delivering stories to an eager audience worldwide. Living in Scotland, she continues to put out work on a regular and consistent basis, with lots more to come in the future.

Writing Career

It was in 2014 that Pauline M Ross would write her first fantasy novel, beginning her ‘Brightmoon’ series with the book ‘The Plains of Kallanash.’ This would see her continue a series in much the same vein, with an ongoing fantasy saga and narrative running throughout the novels. Later in 2016 she would turn to writing under her Mary Kingswood novel, beginning with the book ‘Amy,’ and this would be the first in the ‘Daughters of Allmont Hall’ series.

Other series she would continue to write under her Mary Kingswood pen-name were titled ‘Sons of the Marquess,’ ‘Sisters of Woodside Mystery,’ ‘Silver Linings Mystery,’ and ‘Strangers.’ She would later also write the novel ‘The Captain and The Country Cousin,’ which was a stand-alone Regency romance published in 2021. With a growing audience worldwide, more and more continue to discover her books every day, and will carry on doing so for a long time yet.


First published through the ‘Sutors Publishing’ label, this would originally come out back in 2017 on the 31st of March. It would be a Regency romance title with a stand-alone romance, this one being the sixth in the ongoing series ‘The Daughters of Allmont Hall.’ Continuing on in much the same vein as before, it builds upon the world of the previous novels, whilst telling its own story.

With absolutely no plans to marry, Hope has remained single in the five years since her father’s passing, and now it’s time that his will’s final clause is coming in to effect. If her brother’s aren’t to be found then the family home of Allmont Hall will go to the church, with Hope needing to move in with her mother in Dower House. There’s one stipulation; her Hugo her cousin must inherit the home, but only on the condition he marries Hope, but this might mean giving up on the chance of discovering a partner she loves. Will she go through with it, can the two of them build a home together, and what will finally become of Hope?

Showing another of the sisters living at Allmont Hall, this is a great book finishing off the series once and for all. Really tying everything up, it manages to fully capture all the themes and ideas that have been running throughout the series as a whole. With strong characters and a well paced plot, it does work on its own too, but the story really delivers when it comes to its returning readers.

Stranger at the Cottage

Once again published through the ‘Sutors Publishing’ imprint, this would be the fifth in the ongoing ‘Strangers’ series of books. A complete story in its own right too, it has a self-contained narrative that’s very much its own story, whilst also being a part of the larger series. First published on the 13th of December in 2021, this would be continue the franchise, whilst paving the way for the sixth book titled ‘Stranger at the Hall’ published in 2022.

Grand-daughter to a baron, Deborah Hollingsworth has come down in society, now working as an unpaid governess for her relatives. With that soon to be no longer an option, she must turn elsewhere for financial stability, looking to start a small school in order to put her secret plan into action. Then she meets a man who is to change everything, as the two of them turn to one another, with David Exton being a widower himself. Will the two of them help each other overcome their obstacles, can they deal with what lies before them, and what will become of the once stranger at the cottage?
