The Autumn Bride

“Gracie charms and entices with this launch of the Regency-era Chance Sisters series. . . . Layers of secrets and deft characterization make for a deep, rich story that will leave readers starry-eyed.”

Publishers Weekly
(starred review)

“Historical romance author Gracie is known for her nuanced, unconventional characters and rich, original plot lines. This book, first of a planned quartet, doesn’t disappoint. A complex, charming heartwarmer that celebrates love, brave heroines and the miracle of second chances.”

Kirkus Reviews

The Autumn Bride
is going to be
book to add to the TBR list of historical romance fans everywhere.”

Bride by Mistake
 . . . Gracie created two great characters, a high-tension relationship and a wonderfully satisfying ending. Not to be missed!”

Romance Reviews Today

The Accidental Wedding

“With her signature superbly nuanced characters, subtle sense of wit and richly emotional writing, Gracie puts her distinctive stamp on a classic Regency plot.”

Chicago Tribune

“Anne Gracie’s writing dances that thin line between always familiar and always fresh. She is able to take a Cinderella story with all the inherent—and comfortable—tradition, mix in a few recognizable elements, add a dash of the unexpected and a sprinkling of the unpredictable, and come up with a luscious indulgence of a novel . . . Warm and sweet, tempered with bursts of piquancy and a dash or three of spice. Like chocolate and chili, this novel is your favorite comfort food, with an unexpected—delicious—twist.”

New York Journal of Books

“Gracie takes conventions of the romance novel that have been done to death—amnesia, injured hero, heroine who does too much—and turns them into a story that is fresh and new and interesting. That takes talent. And this, plus two charming main characters, a suspenseful subplot and some delightful love scenes, makes for a near-perfect read.”

All About Romance

“Gracie paints an affecting portrait of a woman surviving parental neglect to manage a home via her wits, and a diplomat who’s not so diplomatic when it comes to the woman he wants but won’t admit he loves. A finely crafted tale, with just the right amount of sexuality.”

Library Journal

“Anne Gracie does it again:
The Accidental Wedding
is funny, charming and completely endearing . . . There are some authors I pick up when I just want some comfort at the end of a long day. Anne Gracie is one of them. Although the stories have their share of excitement, ultimately it’s the love between the characters and the remarkably well-drawn relationships that pull me in and keep me in the story.”

Night Owl Reviews

“A fairy tale any girl would love. Two people, likely to never know love, find each other to make the perfect match in this extraordinary love story. Anne Gracie’s writing is historical romance at its best . . . [She] has created a story of Cinderella finding her prince and doing her best to give them the most perfect happily ever after . . . [It’s] a delightful and fanciful novel that is charmingly romantic and sure to mesmerize you long after you’ve read it!”

The Season

To Catch a Bride

“Threaded with charm and humor . . . [An] action-rich, emotionally compelling story . . . It is sure to entice readers.”

Library Journal
(starred review)

“A fascinating twist on the girl-in-disguise plot . . . With its wildly romantic last chapter, this novel is a great antidote to the end of the summer.”

—Eloisa James,
New York Times
bestselling author

“Anne Gracie at her best, with a dark and irresistible hero, a rare and winsome heroine and a ravishing romance. Catch a copy now! One of the best historical romances I’ve read in ages.”

—Mary Jo Putney,
New York Times
bestselling author

“Swiftly moving . . . Appealing and unconventional . . . Will captivate readers.”
