I know it’s fall and everybody’s pulling out the sweaters and boots, but let’s cling to summer just a little bit longer, okay? Because October 28 is release day for SCANDALOUS SUMMER NIGHTS, Olivia & James’s story!

Scandalous Summer Nights

RT Book Reviews said: “Barton’s combination of humor and poignancy mix well as Olivia grows into a vulnerable, compassionate heroine. The lively dialogue and fast pace enhance the romance and pull readers into every aspect of the story.” And you can preorder today, if you like:

I’m so excited to reveal the cover of my next Honeycote novel, SCANDALOUS SUMMER NIGHTS! This book stars Lady Olivia Sherbourne, who’s been crushing on her brother’s best friend for, oh, about a decade. I can’t wait to share her story with you!


It won’t be out until October, but it’s already available for pre-order at a few sites:

         Barnes & Noble

Daphne and Ben’s story is on shelves, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Once She Was Tempted

NYT Bestselling author Tessa Dare said, “Anne Barton is a delightful new voice in historical romance!  ONCE SHE WAS TEMPTED is a charming read, with characters who are easy to love–a wounded earl and a determined heroine whose heart won’t be denied.”

RT Book Reviews called it “a delightful tale filled with sexual sizzle and banter…Barton’s strong prose and wit will have readers clamoring for more.”

Second, a few reviews for ONCE SHE WAS TEMPTED are in! RT Book Reviews gave it 4 stars, calling it “a delightful tale filled with sexual sizzle and banter…Barton’s strong prose and wit will have readers clamoring for more.”

Bitten by Love Reviews gave it 5 hearts, saying “I love Regency romances for the fairy tale-like qualities and this story was such a winning combination of enchanted make-believe and genuine reality.”

And lastly, of course, we have a blog tour! I’m excited to be part of a Historical Hookup tour along with four fabulous Forever Romance authors: Elizabeth Hoyt, Eileen Dreyer, Jennifer Delamere, and Lily Dalton. Aren’t all our covers gorgeous?
