Avoiding housework one word at a time…

Historical Regency romance featuring strong men with a weakness for the right woman.

New to my books? If you want warm and witty, with hot kisses and perhaps a bit more, check out Regency Christmas Kisses. If you want all the heat, all the time🔥—and with a dash of danger—start with Roaring Rogues: sexy gents who growl >^..^< and need a spunky woman to tame them. For something in between, there’s the super flirty, fun and sexy Lady Scandal or the extended, three-part Mistress in the Making.

Wherever you start, welcome to my Regency world!

If contemporaries are more your thing, stories range from both sexy and tender (Renegade Kisses) to smoking hot Hockey players…who sometimes like to share—and sometimes don’t. 😉

“This is got to be one of the most hilarious and entertaining books I have read it a very long time.”
5-Star Review

“It was both touching and fun. You feel like you really get to know the characters in a short time and they are truly meant for each other.
5-Star Review

“Olivia and Nate are wonderful complements to each other and their initial meeting is worth the story by itself. It’s rather magical how they come together and with such an immediate connection but somehow it is nearly plausible with their banter and chemistry. Laughed and smiled throughout the book! Definitely a fabulous complement to Lady Scandal.”

Witty, Enchanting and Roaring Hot! I think I’ve found a new author to binge! I would definitely recommend it as a good gateway book to shape-shifters or to lovers of historical romance.”

5-Star Review

“New-to-me author Larissa Lyons’ writing style kept me glued to the story with all the twists and turns. She took great pains to use authentic period language. It was easy to understand and helped the story come alive with authenticity. Without a doubt, this author is going to the top of my favorite historical novel author list. I really loved this twist on the traditional historical romance novel.”
