Karen Cogan and Regency Romance A Relative Matter

About the book:
In this sweet Regency romance, life in India is idyllic for Anne Tyler and her younger brother, Jeremy until the deaths of their parents shatter their world. They are sent to England to live with a grandfather that neither remembers. However, as the years pass, the kindly man proves a balm for their wounded hearts. His death, when it comes, is a cruel blow. 

Though his will leaves the estate to Jeremy, the boy is not yet of age. His grandfather’s nephew, a man with a mysterious past, is named guardian of the property and soon arrives to take up his duty. Unfortunately, the man has a son who is both evil and cunning. Since he stands to inherit the estate should Jeremy die, he will stop at nothing to get his hands on the property. 

Murder and threats of murder soon haunt their every move. Standing between them and disaster is the handsome Lord Westerfield, a man who promises to defend Anne and Jeremy, even at risk to his own life.

A brief interview with the Author:

Karen, tell us what you love about A Relative Matter.
What I love about this book is the fun I had doing research into the Regency period. The customs and proprieties of the time were fun to incorporate into this novel. I loved developing the characters and including a tread of mystery. My least favorite character was the unpleasant Mr. Fletcher.

Share something you learned during the research.
The research was intriguing. I enjoyed learning about the London social season as well as how the laws of inheritance worked.

What are you reading now?

I am currently reading The Deer on a Bicycle: Excursions into the Writing of Humor by Patrick McManus. My next project is to finish writing the contemporary romance in which two unrelated young adults share custody of their nephew. 

About the author:
A native of Houston, TX, Karen spent her early years enjoying life along the Gulf Coast. After high school, she attended Texas A&M as well as the University of Houston where she obtained a B.S. in early childhood education. She has written numerous articles and stories, books for children and novels for adults. She particularly enjoys writing contemporary and historical romance. She now lives in the Southwest with her family and assorted pets.
