Award for The Rake’s Mistress

I was very excited and honoured to be told that The Rake’s Mistress had won the Cataromance bi-annual Reviewers’ Choice Award. The book is the third in my Bluestocking Brides trilogy and is set in Suffolk in 1803 at a time when fears of a French invasion were at their highest. Smugglers, pirates, treasure-seekers and spies are all drawn to the quiet Midwinter villages, where the comfortable surface of village life conceals treason and danger as well as romance and excitement.

The reviewer described The Rake’s Mistress as a “spectacular finish” to the series and commented: “Nicola Cornick seduces her readers with her vividly portrayed descriptions of the Regency era, wicked wit, nail biting intrigue, sensual emotion and intense romance.”

As a celebration of the award, I am giving away a signed set of the Bluestocking Brides Trilogy to the first reader whose name is drawn out of the hat on the 21st February. Email me at to enter!

Congrats on the award, Nicola! Though it doesn't surprise me one bit. Your Bluestocking Bride series is great :-)

Thanks, Tess! I was very pleased. I loved writing the series and hopefully that came over in the books. It was a lovely surprise.

May I use this comment slot to thank all of you historical romance authors for the stunning orchids which I received yesterday.

They were absolutely beautiful and totally unexpected.

I am delighted you like the logo but Mandy must take the credit for the inspired choice of background colour. When it was realised a simple black / white silhouette wouldn't work with all of your websites she picked the wedgewood blue.

Thank you as well for making a space for me on your weblog. Love Gillix

Just two weeks ago I recommended The Rake's Mistress to a friend of mine. I'm glad to see others love it as well. Congratulations, Nicola!
