Camel Press Announces the Release of Regency Christmas Gifts: Three All-New Stories by Carla Kelly
An impoverished war widow meets a well-to-do retired sailing master, a self-made man returns home to Scotland, and a man visits the estate of his relatives to divert his lovely second cousin.

BriefingWire.com, 10/02/2015 - Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is delighted to announce the release of Regency Christmas Gifts: Three Stories ($14.95, 210 pp., ISBN: 978-1-60381-994-7), by Carla Kelly. In the first of these stories set in early 19th-century England, The Lasting Gift, an impoverished war widow returns a misdelivered parcel and attracts the interest of a well-to-do retired sailing master and his sister. In Faithfully Yours, a self-made man returns to Scotland to marry the woman he has corresponded with ever since he left as a boy, little knowing the letters were written by another. In Lucy’s Bang-Up Christmas, a man visits the estate of his relatives to comfort his lovely second cousin, who is unhappy that Christmas has been usurped by her sister’s nuptials.

Carla Kelly is the recipient of two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America for Best Regency of the Year; two Spur Awards from Western Writers of America; three Whitney Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Romantic Times. Kelly’s Mrs. Drew Plays Her Hand reprint was selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the top 5 romances in 2012.

Other Camel Press reprints of Carla Kelly regencies include Miss Whittier Makes a List, Miss Chartley’s Guided Tour, Miss Billings Treads the Boards, Miss Milton Speaks Her Mind, Mrs. McVinnie’s London Season, and With This Ring. Camel has also published Books 1, 2, and 3 of Carla’s all-new Spanish Brand series, The Double Cross, Marco and the Devil’s Bargain, and Paloma and the Horse Traders. These stories feature life, love, and danger on America’s southwest border in the 1780s. Book 4 will appear in the fall of 2016.

Carla Kelly is particularly celebrated for her regency romances. The Romance Reader has called her “the Grandmistress of the [Regency] genre.” According to Romantic Times, “Carla Kelly’s Regency Romances are always superb and a timeless delight.” Library Journal wrote, “one of the most respected Regency writers.”

Says Kelly, “I like happy endings, and I’m also interested in the Napoleonic Wars. Two stories reflect that interest from the point of view of those who lost so much—widows and children—and those who fought. The third story is just for fun.”

A well-known veteran of the romance writing field, Carla Kelly is the author of thirty-four novels and four non-fiction works, as well as numerous short stories and articles for various publications. Carla’s interest in historical fiction is a byproduct of her lifelong study of history. She has a BA in Latin American History from Brigham Young University and an MA in Indian Wars History from University of Louisiana-Monroe. You can find Carla online at www.CarlaKellyAuthor.com.
