Session 7B—Dukes Need Not Apply

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Duke in possession of a bad reputation must be in want of a book. But where does that leave readers looking for something a little different? Join authors Alison Stuart, Allison Butler, Courtney Milan and Tea Cooper as we explore amazing romances set in different historical periods and places, and main characters who don’t quite fit the aristocratic mould.

The panellists

Alison Stuart7b-photos is the published author of seven full length historical novels and a collection of her short stories, featuring history, mystery, romance and the occasional ghost. Many of her stories have been shortlisted for international awards and By the Sword won the 2008 EPIC Award for Best Historical Romance. Alison is a past president of Romance Writers of Australia and lives in Melbourne.

Allison Butler is the author of four Scottish medieval romances. Allison’s Borderland Brides sexy Scots series consists of two books, The Healer and The Thief. The Protector and The Rogue are the first two books in her Highland Brides series, with the final story, The Saint, to be released soon. Allison lives in a small rural town in New South Wales with her very own Scottish hero and a Jack Russell named Wallace.

Courtney Milan is a historical romance writer and a three-time RITA finalist as well as a two-time nominee for the ARRA Favourite Historical Romance award. She has currently broken away from her historical romance roots and started a new adult series; Trade Me and Hold Me are the first two books in the Cyclone series. Courtney Milan lives near the Rocky Mountains with her husband, a marginally trained dog and an attack cat.

Tea Cooper is an established Australian author of contemporary and historical fiction set in and around her home town of Wollombi, in the Hunter Valley of NSW. She is the bestselling author of The Horse Thief and The Cedar Cutter, published by Harlequin. Her next historical, The Currency Lass, is due out in March 2017.
