A Few Reviews:

This is probably one of my favorite GG Regency's so far! So much fun and such spunky highbred humor! Plus lovely characters that you truly care about even as you chuckle at their quirky excentricities. Very well researched and set in time. It flows right along smoothly to a rollicking climax! Loads of fun. I am already longing for her next installment!

--Five Star Amazon Review

Dangerous spies, double agents, a handsome Viscount bodyguard, and one naïve, effervescent debutant, mix in some murder and mayhem, and you have all the elements of a thrilling regency romance. This story is filled with clandestine meetings and secret confidences. Miss Penelope Swinton’s introduction to Society is nothing short of scandalous. But plucky Penny faces her fate with a poise and resiliency uncommon for her circumstances. “I enjoy being underestimated. It gives me an advantage sometimes.” This is a season London will not soon forget. While scandal abounds, Penny’s loyalties are firmly planted in Northamptonshire. This “Diamond of the First Water” shows her multi-faceted personality and uncommon character brilliantly. “Perhaps this adapting to Society will not be so difficult if I can do it on my own terms.” This fun and delightful romp was thoroughly entertaining.

Lord Grenville’s Choice

Amazon #1 Bestseller - Regency Romance!

Felicity Lambeth, Countess of Grenville, heroine of Lord Grenville’s Choice, is married to the man she loves, but has never revealed that fact to him. Theirs was a marriage of convenience, as far as her clueless husband is concerned. She is witty and warm-hearted, but she will not stand for any extra-marital nonsense!

Alexander Lambeth, Earl of Grenville only had eyes for the fair Lady Elizabeth during his first London Season. Unfortunately, Elizabeth’s father brokered her marriage to another. Fancying himself broken-hearted, Alex consented to a loveless union with Lady Felicity, daughter of wealthy Lord Morecombe.
Five years into his marriage, his first love is widowed, and Alex’s wife seems to believe he will waste no time making Lady Elizabeth his mistress. As Felicity chooses to live apart from him, a surprisingly difficult choice is thrust upon Alex. Whom does he truly desire—the ethereal Elizabeth or the maddening Felicity?

A Few Reviews:

“As modern readers, we tend to focus on the glitter of the Regency, glamming it up with amorous adventures in period costumes. G.G. Vandariff explores the emotions involved in a love triangle with a steady hand, using the tension of the subject to provide an interesting character study as well as a romance consistent with period values”. –Amazon Review

” Vandagriff writes a story of two people who discover that what they already have is love, and the conventional notions of marriage and intimacy that have dictated their relationship are distorted and destructive. A large part of the delight of the traditional Regency genre is watching love grow amidst all the rules and constraints imposed by society during this historical period. In Lord Grenville’s Choice, however, these rules and constraints are not imposed by society; the barriers to happily-ever-after exist only in the minds of Alex and Felicity, and they have to learn to choose happiness.” – Amazon Review

A Few Reviews:

“The blossoming romance between Lord John and Delia is such a nice story. Lord John has just returned from Waterloo and suffers from melancholy. Delia is hiding from her abusive Uncle, who has promised her in marriage to a brutish man. Despite Delia’s predicament, she remains a strong and independent woman. Both Lord John and Delia are extremely likable characters. You find yourself rooting for them to fall in love. She has the power to dispel John’s sadness, and he has the ability to win her heart.” – Five Star Review by Amazon Reader

“I found this book to be thoroughly enjoyable. Though the book isn’t a long one, the author put just enough into each character to bring them all to life. The attention to detail makes them all well-rounded, each with enough of his or her own history to know them better than one might expect. I found these characters to embody an authenticity that was easy to relate to. I enjoyed the balance of strength and weakness that each displayed, along with the vulnerabilities and sensibilities.”– Five Star Review by Amazon Reader

“The romantic tension makes this novel all the more fun. Vandagriff’s characters are perfectly flawed, with all the right distinctive quirks to keep them in your mind long after you’ve finished the book. The era in which this book is set bring many vivid pictures to mind, and you feel as if you’ve stepped into the past. This is definitely a series worth cuddling up with on a cold, wintry day.” – Mandi Tucker Slack, author of Tide Ever Rising.

“This was a delightful, sweet Regency romance. Bright repartee with dialog appropriate to the era strung the story together. Parts of the story were very chuckle worthy with miscommunication abounding. Other parts entered into a bit of angst as dramatic problems arose. Ned and Caro were likable protagonists with realistic short comings and believable positive traits. This is the first book by G. G. Vandagriff I’ve read. Which is great because now I have everything she’s already written to read and enjoy.”— Cici (Five Stars)
