Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries by Ashley Gardner $0.99 - $1.99 at Smashwords & other

From the author's website, the first in this series, The Hanover Square Affair, is on sale for a limited time for $0.99 at Smashwords and elsewhere. Several others in the series are $1.99 at Smashwords, which appears to be a "regular" (but also good) price. And there is a new ebook-original novella, The Necklace Affair, which is also $0.99.

These are also available at some of the other usual culprits (Amazon and BN at least, haven't looked elsewhere), but the nice part about Smashwords is they are hassle-free multi-format.

These were originally published as DTB in the mid-2000's, and I read a couple of them then and liked them. They are a bit dark, definitely not "cozy" Regency mysteries, but I still enjoyed them.

I'm especially happy though, to see more backlist getting put out as e-books at reasonable prices - woo-hoo!!!

Oh, and BTW, Ashley Gardner is a pen name for Jennifer Ashley, who writes some fantasy and other fiction, and is (I suspect) better known under that name...

I can tell you're teasing, but I'm pretty sure there's a method to her madness. Her Allyson James moniker is for her paranormal romance. Jennifer Ashley is (mostly) historical romance. And the Ashley Gardner is for her historical mysteries. Very different flavors.

I have a few authors I follow that do the same thing - or did when they were first getting established.

Thank you very much! This is a new genre for me, and my little taste of the sample looks like it will be a good read.
