"Quinn’s second Worthington Regency improves on its predecessor (Three Weeks to Wed), retaining the charm and verve and delivering a more satisfying plot. Miss Dorothea “Dotty” Stern, heroine to abandoned animals and people in peril, is glum when it starts to look like she’ll have to miss her long-anticipated social debut with her best friend. When she gets her season after all, hosted by her friend’s family, she must promise her parents to curb her impulse to take in strays. Naturally, she stretches the spirit of her pledges when she meets Dominic Merton, a marquis who’s notorious for his arrogance and heartless political positions. Enthralled by Dotty’s passion, the stuffy and amusingly conflicted Dominic must find a way to woo her without committing the greatest faux pas: falling in love. Amid rescued kittens and thwarted human trafficking circles, Dominic and Dotty’s genuine romance grows in the face of credible obstacles, thrumming with satisfying passion. This is a strong continuation of an appealing series."

“A classic Regency romp! Perfect for fans of Grace Burrowes.”

~Caroline Linden on When a Marquis Chooses a Bride~

"Ella Quinn writes riveting, romantic, and remarkable historical must read books for all of us that believe love always finds you."

~Mary Gramlich on Three Weeks to Wed~

"Oh, the tangled webs we weave…especially when our hearts are involved. Three Weeks to Wed is a delightfully heartwarming escape into the sparkling world of the Regency. Ella Quinn weaves magic."

~Cathy Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author on Three Weeks to Wed~

"The first in what may be a long series, Three Weeks begins with Grace offering herself to longtime crush Matt Worthington when both are stranded at an inn. She thinks that marriage is not an option for her because she is the guardian of her seven siblings, so she only wants this one night together. But determined Matt finds her during the social season and convinces her that he, his stepmother, and four sisters can certainly make a family with her eight. While one relative schemes against them, most people join the effort to get the happy couple wed, while keeping scandal away from the two sisters making their debut. Quinn’s equation of a household filled with chaos and love, matched with the sexy sparring of the engaged couple, produces truly joyous reading. Minor characters stand out even in a large cast in scenes that clearly set up following books. This reads like a sexier Marion Chesney, full of humor and surprises. Recommend this to readers who want a few hours of contented romantic escape."

~Amy Alessio, Booklist on Three Weeks to Wed~

"Ella Quinn’s “Three Weeks to Wed” is a fantastic romance and a great start to her new Worthington series. Grace and Matt are wonderfully developed characters. Grace is a compassionate and vulnerable heroine with an independent and determined streak. Readers will empathize with her situation right away, and she is an endearing character and readers will love her strength and insecurities alike. Matt is a strong-willed hero, and his willingness to help Grace, her siblings, and his family will win readers' hearts. The secondary characters add wit and humor to an already excellent story. Grace and Matt’s siblings are lively and fun. Quinn is able to smoothly write about all these characters without confusing the reader or taking away from the story. The conflicts are simple yet effective, and will keep readers turning pages. “Three Weeks to Wed” is one of the best historical romances I’ve read in a while, and I recommend this story to any romance fan.

Grace knows she can’t marry or she will lose guardianship over her seven siblings. Therefore, all she wants is one night of passion with the man she hoped to marry her first season. When she and Mattheus, Earl of Worthington are stranded at an inn together Grace finally has her chance, and their passions ignite. Worthington wants nothing more than to marry Grace, but she knows it unlikely any man would want to care for all her siblings. However, Worthington won’t give up, and Grace wonders if she can have her happily ever after, after all."

"This is the beginning of a new series and will leave you eager to read the rest of the series. The characters are funny and engaging. The setting is delightful. And the storyline will make you smile. This one is a fun easy read. I can’t wait to see what the future holds."

~My Book Addiction on Three Weeks to Wed~

"I got so caught up in the book and the characters that I didn't make notes or highlights, which basically states I loved this book."

~Crazy Vermonter on Three Weeks to Wed~

“The Marriage Game series winds down in this last entry that is full of surprises. Victims of a matchmaking godmother and a dowager duchess, Meg and Damon slowly realize they are meant for each other in Quinn’s entertaining novel. Poignant at times, it’s a story to savor by a crackling fire.”

~RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars, on Miss Featherton's Christmas Prince~

"Ella Quinn gifts readers with a lovely historical, holiday romance. Meg Featherton is a determined young woman however the Marquis is even more so and they make for a wonderful pair. I enjoyed that they both seemed to have their flaws yet the goodness fair outweighed the negatives of their personalities. At first glance Meg came across as a tad obnoxious but with her history it was understandable, after seeing her devotion to her friend I knew she deserved my understanding. Damon intrigued me from the start and while he gathered my sympathy never once did I pity this strong man. I enjoyed witnessing his campaign to win Meg and how caring he and his friend were of her feelings. Meg's grandmother and Damon's godmother and their friends are wonderful, I can only aim to be as feisty when I'm their age. The supporting characters in this story were wonderful and kept a constant smile on my face well after the last page. Some could have well-been caricatures or clichés except for the talent of the author to make me realize clichés exist because there a people who display certain characteristics. the Duke was everything I was expecting him to be and yet he still managed to surprise me. I cannot wait to go back and read all the adventures in this series that I haven't yet enjoyed. If you are a fan of Regency romances set during the holidays this is a must-read as it has something everyone will love, adventure, romance, festivities and heartache."

~Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars, on Miss Featherton's Christmas Prince~

"Ella Quinn gifts readers with a cute historical holiday romance with Madeleine's Christmas Wish. As with shorter stories you jump right into the action and the romance. The lead couple are both strong characters whom I felt an instant connection to. Georges is a very convincing hero and Madeleine might be a lady in peril, however she never comes across as helpless or incapable. I loved the fact that there was a touch of a mystery and I’m a fan of feel-good holiday reads.

If you are looking for a quick Christmas read and enjoy historical romances this is a great choice. While it does fall under a series it is a stand-alone and is a solid, simple choice to enjoy over a warm mug of hot chocolate."

~Night Owl Reviews on Madeleine's Christmas Wish~

"Ella Quinn gifts readers with a unique location with this historical romance. Miss Eugénie Villaret makes for an interesting heroine, and I admired her greatly. William, Viscount Wivenly is a rather conventional, unconventional bachelor and I enjoyed watching him deal with his feelings. I rather enjoy history and as this was not a standard setting for a Regency story I couldn't pass up this unique setting. And I'm glad I didn't because the author weaves beautiful details about the history and culture of the time, including housing and food which added exceptional elements to a typical scenario. I loved how slavery was also detailed in this story as it is not something often discussed. This is an interesting Regency romance that will appeal to readers looking for something slightly different when it comes to details and setting but the usual interactions of the main couple. It is an easy read with amiable characters."

~Night Owl Reviews on Enticing Miss Eugénie Villaret~

"In some ways Desiring Lady Caro by Ella Quinn is a traditional and quintessentially satisfying Regency romance read, but in other, thoroughly engaging, ways it took me completely by surprise. I loved the varied settings, from the palazzos of Venice through Austria and finally to Paris. I also appreciated Quinn's ability to infuse her story with serious subject matter and treat it with subtlety and sensitivity. Most of all, I loved her characters. Caro was a particularly likable heroine and Huntley's persistence and determination to protect her make him the perfect romance hero. Beyond her heroine and heroine, Quinn also populates her story with wonderful secondary characters like Caro's strong, determined godmother, Horatia.

Desiring Lady Caro provides everything lovers of Regency romance crave in terms of setting and period details while providing a story that features danger, adventure, and a second chance at love."

~Night Owl Reviews on Desiring Lady Caro~

“Supported by a wonderful cast of characters, Quinn’s thoughtfully drawn lovers teach each other the value of love in this delicious Regency treat.”

~New York Times Bestselling author Eileen Dreyer on The Temptation of Lady Serena~

“This charming, sweet love story is the perfect addition to the Marriage Game series. Readers will enjoy the classic plotline with its stubborn alpha male hero, awkward heroine, misunderstandings, interference from loved ones and truly likable characters from previous novels — and the ultimate happily ever after.”

~ RT Book Reviews on The Temptation of Lady Serena~

“Let yourself be seduced by this sexy mix of spies, smugglers, and happily ever afters.”

~USA Today Bestselling Author Sally MacKenzie on The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh~

“Lady Phoebe is a heroine Georgette Heyer would adore–plucky, pretty, and well worth the devotion of the dashing Lord Marcus. A marvelous find for Regency romance readers.”

~Grace Burrowes on The Seduction of Lady Phoebe~

“Ella Quinn’s The Seduction of Lady Phoebe is a passionate tale full of humor, romance, and poignancy. Quinn writes classic Regency romance at its best!”

~Shana Galen on The Seduction of Lady Phoebe~

“Kissing Lady Phoebe Stanhope was the best and worst thing a young, impressionable Lord Marcus Finley would ever do. He had always loved her and one kiss would seal the deal and make her run away with him, yet Phoebe said no and promptly broke his nose.

Marcus never lost one moment of his longing for Phoebe even during his days and nights repairing his reputation in the West Indies. Upon his return, he seeks her out to explain with a full heart his hopes of wooing her into his arms again. The convincing is heartfelt and the words rough but sincere and eventually break down the wall Phoebe built up against his affection.

Phoebe makes Marcus earn every kiss they share, and embrace he longs for knowing that she too was in love. But another man has made Phoebe his obsession and without regard for anyone else spends every moment trying to steal her away from her family and Marcus. The closer she gets to happiness the more intense her stalker becomes and the danger is right outside the gate.

Marcus and Phoebe are determined to make a life past the sorrow and pain while never forgetting that they truly did marry for love.”

~Mary J. Gramlich, TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on The Seduction of Lady Phoebe~

“This is Ella Quinn’s debut novel, and it really made me chuckle all the way through!

We meet our heroine Phoebe when she’s only an impressionable fifteen, and from that first meeting a reader as well as our hero Marcus, are impressed by her maturity and spunk. No wonder Marcus could never forget her!

I was also impressed with Ms. Quinn’s development of the both major and minor characters, well-developed plot and a villain we could all hate, as well as the pace of the story. I liked that she took the time in developing this sweet romance between Phoebe and Marcus.

If you’re looking for a mix of a traditional and modern Regency story, this will be a perfect read for you. This story was a mix of Carla Kelly and Kieran Kramer, a mix of prim and proper with a dash of fun and witty dialogue. I’m so glad to have discovered another little gem!”

~Melanie for b2b on The Seduction of Lady Phoebe~

"Ella Quinn is a bright new star in the Regency genre, and this, her debut novel, won’t disappoint."
