The Goodreads Giveaway is on! Enter to win the paperback to be released Oct. 1st!
OK, so it’s August and you’re home and you’re bored. Maybe the kids are in summer camp or going back to school. You want an adventure, an around the world trip, or perhaps an ocean voyage—without leaving your living room. And you want a good love story. But you’re tired of those set mostly in England, Scotland, Ireland and America? Well, I have just the list for you!
My mother taught me to read when I was four and told me I could travel the world through books. She was right. And were she still alive, she would love this list I’ve created for you daydreamers out there who long to travel…historical romances by some great authors set in exotic locales. Though some might begin (or end) in England or America, they will quickly take you to another time and another place! And all have been rated 4, 4 and ½ or 5 stars by me.
See the list HERE.

Some of the early praise for my first medieval romance THE RED WOLF'S PRIZE:
“Ms. Walker has the rare ability to make you forget you are reading a book…the characters become real, the modern world fades away and all that is left is the intrigue, drama and romance.” Straight from the Library
“An engrossing love story grounded in meticulous research. Regan Walker makes the transition from Regency London to Anglo Norman England with consummate ease.” Glynn Holloway, author of 1066 What Fates Impose
“Regan Walker has delivered an exciting tale and a passionate love story that brings to life England after the Conquest—medieval romance at its best!" Virginia Henley New York Times Bestselling Author

In case you were wondering where I am this week, I'm in San Antonio at the Romance Writers of America's convention, where it is hot, hot, hot.
On Wednesday, I signed my books at the Literacy Event where over $50,000 was raised for the cause of literacy. In this picture, I'm holding up my last copy of WIND RAVEN (I sold out of all my books just after this picture was taken).
With the end of the War of 1812 and the Napoleonic wars in 1814, an unprecedented wave of piracy swept the American seaboard and the Caribbean when some of the hundreds of captains who were privateers in the wars began preying upon the growing numbers of merchant vessels. Although some of these pirates, like Jean Laffite, were American, the majority came from farther south and Latin America.
Roberto Cofresi was one of them. Born on June 17, 1791 in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico as Roberto Cofresí y Ramírez de Arellano, he became Puerto Rico’s most famous pirate, better known as “El Pirata Cofresí.” Cofresí’s father is believed to have been Austrian and changed his surname to Cofresí when he moved his family to Puerto Rico because it was easier for the people to pronounce.
Just as I have portrayed him in my latest novel, Wind Raven, Cofresi was tall, blond and blue-eyed and wore dangling silver and diamond earrings any woman would covet. See more of the post HERE. And comment to win a free copy of the book!
