About Stephanie Laurens:

An international New York Times best selling author, Stephanie Laurens has been a published novelist for over twenty years. She is a romance novelist who’s had 29 of her 50 books end up on the New York Times best seller list. Some of her titles include Cynster, Bastion Club, Black Cobra Quartet, and Casebook of Barnaby Adair novels. Laurens’ novels are set in the era of the British Regency, with settings ranging from Scotland to India. She has traveled the world extensively which attributes to her being able to write well about the places she’s been to and seen and which also makes the settings in her novels come alive with authentic detail.

Her Younger Years

Ms. Laurens was born in Sri Lanka back when the country was still known as Ceylon, but only lived there until she was five. At that young age she moved with her parents to Melbourne, Australia where her parents still live to this day. She lived in Australia until adulthood and completed all of her schooling in Melbourne. She obtained her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the university there and once finished moved with her husband (whom she says was “ acquired along the way ”) to London via an overland journey from Katmandu.

Her Early Career

Because of her education in biochemistry, Ms. Laurens’ first job in London was as a research scientist. She and her husband spent four years working as scientists in London and traveling throughout England, Spain, France, Northern Italy, and Portugal. Once she and her husband returned to Australia, Ms. Laurens kept working as a research scientist, only now she worked in the field of cancer research. She continued this work she had studied to do and rose to great heights until she was heading up her own research laboratory.

Her Start as a Writer

Ms. Laurens had been infatuated with romance novels from a very young age. She remembers reading her first one at age thirteen when she borrowed “ These Old Shades ” by Geogette Heyer from her mother. Her mother borrowed romance novels from her friends at work and Ms. Laurens would gobble them up after her mother was finished. She was hooked on romance novels from a very young age and still have shelves of them all around her home.

One day after she and her husband had returned to Australia Ms. Laurens ran out of books to read. She really wanted to read a Regency romance, but couldn’t find any in the stores. So, she decided she would write one herself. It was something she had always wanted to do anyway, she had just never done it. That first attempt at writing a British Regency romance became her first book, “ Tangled Reins ” which was published by Mills and Boon. From that day on, Ms. Laurens gave up the dry world of professional science to write fiction. She ended up writing seven more books for Mills and Boon in total.

Her Books and Series

“ Tangled Reigns ”, Ms. Laurens first novel still continues to go in and of print today. The blurb on the original UK edition of the book reads like this: ” Miss Dorothea-Darent had no intention of ever tying the knot, not until a dashing-stranger with hazel-eyes kissed her under a tree. Haunted by their kiss, the Marquis-of-Hazelmere, a notorious-rake, was determined to win Dorothea’s-heart, even while she was busy-dazzling other bucks of the ton. Dorothea had a choice: stick with her plans to remain an independent-spinster, or surrender to love. ”

Ms. Laurens has written several series of novels including The Cynster Novels which includes titles like:

– Devil’s Bride
– A Rake’s Vow
– Scandal’s Bride
– A Rogue’s Proposal
– A Secret Love
– All About Love
– All About Passion
– On a Wicked Night
– On a Wicked Dawn
– The Perfect Lover
– The Ideal Bride
– The Truth About Love
– What Price Love?
– The Taste of Innocence
– Temptation and Surrender

– The Lady Chosen
– A Gentleman’s Honor
– A Lady of His Own
– A Fine Passion
– To Distraction
– Beyond Seduction
– The Edge of Desire
– Mastered by Love
– Captain Jack’s Woman
– The Bastion Club Honor Roll

Probably the most popular of all of her series of novels is series entitles The Black Cobra Quartet. About this series, Ms. Laurens website says, “ They’re battle hardened, completely unstoppable, sinfully wealthy, – and all male: Four-officers of the Crown, fighting-against a deadly-foe known only as the Black Cobra.” This series is loosely tied to both The Cynster Novels and The Bastion Club Novels. Titles in this series include:

– The Untamed Bride
– The Elusive Bride
– The Brazen Bride
– The Reckless Bride

Ms. Laurens’ other series include The Cynster Sisters’ Trilogy, The Cynsters Duo, Family Tree, and The Casebook of Barnaby Adair Novels. She’s also written seven novellas including Melting Ice, Rose in Bloom, Scandalous Lord Dere, Lost and Found, The Fall of Rogue Gerrard, The Seduction of Sebastian, and Trantor and two short stories; The Wedding Planner and Return Engagement.

Her Awards

Ms. Laurens’ books have won several awards. In the year 2008 Ms. Laurens received the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA Award for Best Romance Novella 2008, for The Fall of Rogue Gerrard. Her book Devil’s Bride has won six awards by itself. They include AAR Favorite European Historical Romance, RT reviewers’ Choice – Historical Romance in a series, AAR Top 100 Romances No. 5 in the year 2000, AAR Top 100 Romances No. 24 in the year 2004, and AAR Top 100 Romances No. 31 in the year 2007. In 2000 her book A Secret Love won the AAR Most Luscious Love Story award and 2002 her book On a Wild Night won the AAR award for the Most Annoying Lead Character.

When you look at the amount of time Ms. Laurens has allocated to her craft, the huge size of her growing fan base, and the many awards her books, novellas, and short stories have won, it’s easy to see why she is one of the most popular romance novelists of the 20th century. Her books and short stories continue to capture the hearts of a worldwide audience and will probably ontinue to do so for as long as she keeps writing.

    I’m confused about the correlation between Captain Jack’s Woman and A Fine Passion. Both list Jack Warnefleet as the main character, but in Captain Jack’s Woman, he marries Kit Crandle in 1811. In A Fine Passion, 4 or 5 years later, Jack has fled London to prevent from being married to the wrong woman. So he is unmarried 4 or 5 years AFTER he married Kit?

    • Judy c: 5 months ago

      Captain Jack is Jonathon Hendon. The other Jack is Jack Warnefleet

    • Judy c: 5 months ago

      2 different Jacks.Captain Jack is Jonathon Hendon. He married Kit. Jack Warnafleet married Lady Clarice Attwood.

  2. Rachelle: 2 years ago

    What happened to Nicholas Selborne,Lady Penelope’s cousin. (A Lady of His Own)His story could be he escape the man sent to kill and French send a woman. They fall in love ectopic. It would be great.
