TBT Feature Novel + Giveaway: The Bargain by Vanessa Riley

Happy Thursday, Reader Friends!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out this Thurday’s Throwback Feature Novel, The Bargain, by Vanessa Riley. This novel takes us back to 2015. Have you read it? If not, the first episode is FREE on ebooks. Plus, Ms. Riley is offering a giveaaway. Check out the details below.

About the Book


The Blurb: “Coming to London has given Precious Jewell a taste of freedom, and she will do anything, bear anything, to keep it. Defying her master is at the top of her mind, and she won’t let his unnerving charm sway her. Yet, will her restored courage lead her to forsake a debt owed to the grave and a child who is as dear to her as her own flesh?

Gareth Conroy, the third Baron Welling, can neither abandon his upcoming duty to lead the fledgling colony of Port Elizabeth, South Africa nor find the strength to be a good father to his heir. Every look at the boy reminds him of the loss of his wife. Guilt over her death plagues his sleep, particularly when he returns to London. Perhaps the spirit and fine eyes of her lady’s maid, Precious Jewell, might offer the beleaguered baron a new reason to dream.”

Author’s note: The Bargain is a serialized story or soap opera told in episodes. Each episode averages from three to eight chapters, about 15,000 to 30,000 words. Each episode resolves one issue. Emotional cliffhangers may be offered, but the plot, the action of the episode, will be complete in resolving the main issue.  My promise to you is that the action will be compelling, and I will tell you in the forward the length of the episode. This episode, Episode IV, is nine chapters long, 32,000 words. There are 4 episodes total for Season 1. Enjoy these Regency Tales set in South Africa. –Vanessa Riley

  1. I don’t have a favorite regency era novel but, I do love to read. 🙂 Thanks for sharing info about Vanessa Riley.


  2. My favorite Regency era novel (from before such novels were historical fiction) is Persuasion by Jane Austen. My favorite Regency era novel (from a contemporary author) is pretty much a three-way tie between Prelude for a Lord and The Spinster’s Christmas by Camille Elliot and Unveiling Love by Vanessa Riley. 🙂


  3. My favorite Regency novels is A Regency Match by Elizabeth Mansfield. I just roar with laughter when I read (or rather reread) it!
