        I was born in Essex England during the mid sixties but I missed all the fun Being only young I assumed that all Beatles were six legged creatures and Flower Power was something to do with the vigorous way my mother kneaded the bread dough.My wonderful parents brought me up with a huge love of books We read anything and everything Bedtime stories were a treasured time of adventure and mystery My sister and I sat wide eyed in wonder and to this day I worry about Dinah and Dorinda being pricked with pins because they grew so fat, and I never pull faces at the a waning moon or was it a waxing one just in case my chops stay that way The Wind On The Moon I began reading romance while still at school The fuel for many a teenage fantasy leapt from between the covers of wildly romantic books and my passion still lingers now for all those dark haired heroes.My own beautiful teenage daughter persuaded me to write my first romance She was only fourteen at the time and between books for children and adults She couldn t find anything that ticked all her numerous and particular boxes and so she asked me to write a book, with all the exact ingredients just for her Though not just a book for teens, she enjoyed the resulting tale so much that she shared it with her friends and I eventually published A Perfect Summer as an ebook on .But I have discovered that writing is not easily stopped once you start It has turned into a grand passion that I just cannot hold back The fingertips start tapping the keys and ideas suddenly come flooding, far too many for just one book and so I began another and then another Nine books later I am still nowhere near done Book ten is on its way and only just the other night I woke from a wild and wonderful dream with book eleven fully formed in my head.Romance will always be my first love but recently I was so influenced by a tiny polished plaque on a sea wall that I gave paranormal romance a try Echo Beach Mixing the two genres was a real challenge for me but I was delighted with the result Historical romance is going to be my next genre All those fabulously titled and passionate men are impossibly hard to resist.All of my books are Easy Reading Romance, intended only to while away a few hours with some light entertainment They are not meant to teach you anything or to stay with you for years after reading Please do not read or review them if you are expecting anything deeper or meaningful.I hope you enjoy all of my efforts and I look forward to your comments and reviews.

    1. “Silence of scandal” will definitely make a perfect read for all fans of historical romance genre. But what I loved the most about this story is unorthodox characters and the plot that truly makes it stand out among the other stories in this genre. What started as a horrific accident that took a life of an innocent child led to drastic consequences that would claim not only a family fortune and good name but more innocent lives as well. Alexander, one of the brothers who caused the accident, [...]


    2. Secrets and lies…Alexander has come home from 5 years of war, but on his return, he learns of the unfortunate death of his beloved father and brother. Worse still, he is now a Duke that is on the verge of bankruptcy, and he cannot understand why.Silence Of Scandal (Unrivalled Regency #1) is an aptly named book. There is more than one 'scandal' in this book, and if any it were to be made known to the Ton then Alexander's family would be ruined. Reputation is everything. There are some things th [...]


    3. Lovely and Exciting!I’ve never read a Regency Romance before. In fact I had to look up the definition. After reading this beautiful novel, I have to say, author Jackie Williams is a talented writer in this genre.The gorgeous cover promises romance. Once you begin to read this novel, you are drawn into the world of England in the early 1800’s. This is a story of a marriage of convenience between Alexander, the Duke of Ormond, and Elizabeth. Alexander is forced into this marriage because he ne [...]


    4. You can’t always judge a book by its incredibly gorgeous, sexy cover. But, in this case, you can. Silence of Scandal is the complete package. It embodies all the elements of a deliciously romantic and thrilling Regency: Scandal, deeply buried secrets, deception, betrayal, lust and love. The story centers around Alexander and Elizabeth, but circumstances and people are not always what or who they seem to be. The non-stop twists and turns will keep you riveted. The passion, sexual tension and un [...]


    5. A fascinating Regency Mystery RomanceI was drawn to this book by its cover—what a beautiful cover that conveys passion and mystery. And then, I started reading… What can I say? The intriguing plot with its twists and turns, the beautiful descriptions, the fascinating characters and their strong emotions and conflicts took my breath away. The arranged wedding between seductive Alexander and ravishingly beautiful Elizabeth, hidden secrets, intrigue, the threat of a scandal, and fiery passion m [...]


    6. I must admit, I’ve ran across this book cover in several groups I’m in and my eye has always been drawn to the cover. I mean, who doesn’t want to see a shirtless, hunky man. Right? The cover bespeaks elegance and historical romance. And that’s just what I got. The story was beautifully written and for the time period the story takes place in. I fell in love with the older Alexander. He returned from the French war to find his family in ruins, his father & brother dead and some unknow [...]


    7. Silence of Scandal is the best Regency Romance I’ve read in a long time. It is fresh and stays true to the genre. The tale opens with a prologue in which Phillip and Alexander are engaged in a steam engine experiment in the barn. Unknown to them, the farmer’s daughter is hiding in the hay watching them. The romance jumps ahead to when Alexander is freshly returned from the war with Napoleon and discovers that both his father and his older brother have recently drowned. He inherits the Dukedo [...]


    8. Loved this book! It was fast paced and the story flowed smoothly. There was romance, mystery, and even what is thought of as a modern day issue thrown in, that should give everyone a reminder that no matter what era you live in persecution and hate destroys. The author, Jackie Williams, spins her tale well and grips you in its web. She paints a perfect backdrop for this time period, and takes you on a ride that involves, trauma, treachery, deceit, blackmail, jewels, disability, prejudice, madnes [...]


    9. A lavish regency romance with some twists. The first small surprise with this book is the prologue where we meet the main character, Alexander, as a child. Trouble strikes this curious boy and leaves its mark on his character. Years later, Alexander returns from the battlefront to find his brother and father dead, and the dukedom he has inherited deep in debt. The circumstances set up a classic romantic dilemma--an arranged marriage to the lovely Elizabeth as the way out of financial difficulty, [...]


    10. What a super book! There's a bit of everything going on here but I really liked the intrigue/mystery mixed with romance. There are some good extra characters too so hopefully this will end up as a series. I thought the author caught the era perfectly. The language seemed natural and perfectly paced and the attention to detail regarding the regency period is super. There are some lovely scenes to this book which embraces a certain disability with care and attention,(no spoilers here)and when Alex [...]


    11. Period pieces are not my usual read. However, mystery is. So when I saw that this book had a mystery element to it, I decided to give it a try. I mean, it's cool when I get to task my brain and try to figure out who the true villains are as I progress through a story. So yeah, this book definitely provided that sense of mystery. Not only that, the romance aspect kept me reading as well.Williams developed the story and the characters really well. From the start, I got sucked in and really cared a [...]


    12. This is a wonderful story about love, secrets, scandal and much more. The plot is well developed and you won’t be able to guess what happens next. The author is able to develop the sexual chemistry between the characters so well, I was turning the pages quickly to find out what happens next.This is as much a romance novel as an historical one. It is set during a time where women wore long gowns and the only mode of transport was the horse. I think this just adds to the charm of the book. This [...]


    13. It has been a while since I have read a Regency Romance. I forgot how much I really like them. I love being taken back to the 1800's! The hero's and heroine's-even when they are forced together are oh so proper. But when there is mystery involved, from both the past and the future-it is even better!!This is definitely one of the better Regencies I've ever read and I know for a fact that I will be getting others in this series. Jackie Williams knows just how to write them!!Silence Of Scandal


    14. ‘Silence of Scandal’ is an enjoyable read about a love affair between two most unlike people, Alexander and Elizabeth. Set in the regency period, the story is full of twists and turns, but the author did a wonderful job of developing the plot and building the suspense; making me eager to turn the pages. Filled with intrigue, romance, greed, and revenge, this story is a fun read!



    15. This story was definitely an entertaining read. The prologue immediately captured my attention. The characters were mere children in the prologue, and I liked how the author set the story with the tragedy right from the start. When the story really begins the hero is already in his 20's and he again was thrown with more tragic news. He was left to pick up the pieces and find answers before it was too late. In the process, he had to marry a woman he didn't even know. I won't say much more than th [...]


    16. I really enjoyed this regency romance. It had an unexpected heroine in the form of Elisabeth Hardacre who not only provided an attractive love interest but an endearing and vulnerable character. Alexander despite all his troubles and the wrongs that have been done to his family is a man to be admired as he deals with that and a marriage he’s been forced into. There are many lighter moments too and I had great fun discovering what was wrong with Alexander’s bride.There are some racy moments b [...]


    17. A lost treasure, blackmail, a forced marriageThere is much to the story of Elizabeth and Alexander. It revolves around two brothers and their childhood friends, a tragic accident, lies and deceit, forbidden love, blackmail, death, and forced marriage to a disabled young woman.The story would have benefited greatly from an editor or competent proofreader.147


    18. YesEnjoyable however got over repeated in some area off the story. Plus it wasn't hard to figure out who I it was.


    19. This was an enjoyable and romantic read that Regency fans will adore. It has a really interesting cast of characters with an interesting mystery at its core. The sex scenes were written in a tasteful way and the story moved along at a good pace. A great book to lose yourself in!


    20. 3.5 starsThis story had a good plot and great characters. I enjoyed it enough to want to read book 2. Let me say this book needed a good editor. Quite a few grammatical errors. Also, heroine puts on rose colored gown then hero talks about how lovely she is in aqua colored gown. Some things didn't seem to match the time period, but nothing major. Also, in the beginning the author spelled things the way the heroine was saying them, but later did not. Was she speaking more clearly? Hero was Alexand [...]


    21. Vikki’s MusingsI downloaded this book back in November through the Kindle Unlimited program. It has some great reviews, so I thought I would give it a read. I have mixed feelings and struggled on the rating, vacillating between three and four Gold Crowns, ultimately I decided on four. I found Silence of Scandal compelling and liked the characters from the beginning. This story starts with a prologue with twelve-year-old Alexander Currurgh and his fourteen-year-old brother performing an experim [...]


    22. A delightful read! I enjoyed this from the moment we meet Alexander and his brother, to the very end when all the mysteries are resolved. There's a good mix of heart break and humour, including a couple of laugh out loud moments. There's plenty of adventure and intrigue and while it's not difficult to figure out who is who and what is going on, it's still a super read. I also like the fact that although the book is part of an ongoing series with all the other characters having their own adventur [...]


    23. I enjoyed the first half of the book but then it dragged on and on for me. I also thought her identity was fairly obvious to all.
