MarieTremayne

Writer of Historical Romance

Marie Tremayne

Marie Tremayne graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in English Language and Literature. While there, a copy of Pride and Prejudice ended up changing her life, and she decided to study the great books of the Regency and Victorian eras. Now she enjoys writing her own tales set in the historical period she loves.

Lady in Waiting is Marie Tremayne’s debut romance novel and was a finalist in the GSRWA’s 2014 Emerald City Opener Contest. Its sequel, The Viscount Can Wait, was a finalist in the 2015 ECO Contest, as well as the 2018 ECWC "Open the Book" contest. Marie lives with her family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.



"Romance readers whose must-have checklists include brooding heroes tortured by their past and plucky Cinderella heroines unafraid to break the rules will definitely find Tremayne’s impressive debut simply irresistible."

Lady in Waiting

Family

Imagine being born in a time when your husband is selected for you, and marriage is often treated like any other business transaction. Welcome to Victorian England! Our heroine finds herself struggling with an impossible situation.

Risk

Nothing risked, nothing gained. Or so they say! Faced with pleasing her family and enduring a loveless marriage, or freeing herself from it all, including life as she knows it - it won't be easy. Our heroine takes a mighty risk, indeed...

Love

True love awaits! Too bad her risky choice has rendered her ineligible to the man of her dreams. Can our heroine prevail despite the challenges before her? And will our hero be willing to take his own risks to claim her?





The Viscount Can Wait

LOSS

After losing her husband, our young widow and her child have relied on the kindness of family and friends. Moving on has been difficult, although her relationship with a particular friend has become most problematic...

TEMPTATION

It had taken no less than her marriage to another for him to realize he was in love with her. They've grown close in the years since her husband's death, but not nearly close enough to suit his burning desire...

SURRENDER

She doesn't trust him, but she wants him. Badly. Could he actually be the man she's been needing all this time? And will she ever be able to let her guard down so he can love her the way she deserves?





Waiting For a Rogue

BETRAYAL

Cast aside by her parents in favor of selfish pursuits, the daughter of a duke is raised by her aunt among the Hampshire countryside. Her rejection teaches her that trust and love are mutually exclusive notions.

DEFIANCE

Her parents demand she find a husband and release them from financial obligation, so it is the last thing on earth she will grant. Even when she finds the ideal man in a surprising and unexpected place...

REVELATION

As life turns sideways and her beloved aunt's health starts to decline, our heroine is forced to reexamine her priorities. Will she ever allow herself to trust again? And can she do it before the man she's grown to love leaves her too?
