To Ruin a Gentleman

In 2017, Shana Galen published Traitor in Her Arms, part of the Scarlet Chronicles, a series of historical romantic adventures set during the turbulent years of the French Revolution.  Now she’s following up with another book in the series – a novella – which precedes Traitor, but which can b ...

Unmask Me if You Can

Shana Galen’s Unmask Me if You Can reminded me of The Phantom of the Opera – minus the stalker-ish behavior of the hero, and plus a whole lot of tender romance and tropes I adore. Jasper Grantham, third son of the Marques of Strathern, had once been the most handsome man in all of England, bu ...

B

Shana Galen’s Covent Garden Cubs series has highlighted many people and places we rarely see in a romance, such as the slums of Seven Dials or the gangs of thieves who know all the tricks to separate a lofty peer of his valuables. Along the way Sir Brook Derring has worked as an investigator, usin ...

B
The Rogue You Know

Like the previous book in Shana Galen’s Covent Garden Cubs series, The Rogue You Know features an engaging – if improbable – cross-class romance, this time between an aristocratic young woman and a thief who wants to get out of the game and make a better life for himself. We met Gideon Harrow ...
