romance in progress


I have every intention of making this book available again in the future, so that more readers can fall in love with Kit, Jude and their epic romance!

Untamed May 2013, Destiny Romance

Outspoken and opinionated, Katherine Sutherland is ill at ease amongst the fine ladies of Regency London. She is more familiar with farmers and her blunt opinions and rough manners offend polite society. Yet when she hears the scandalous rumours involving her sister and the seductive Duke of Darlington, the fiercely loyal Katherine vows to save her sister’s marriage – whatever the cost.

Intrigued by Katherine’s interference in his affairs, the manipulative Duke is soon fascinated. He engages in a daring deception and follows her back to her country home. Here, their intense connection shocks them both. But the Duke’s games have dangerous consequences, and the potential to throw both their lives into chaos…

Wildly romantic, Untamed is a passionate and beautifully written debut novel. This decadent historical romance defies convention and will shock and delight in equal measure.

‘A  strong and original voice, a unique story and characters you won’t easily forget — this is an exciting and memorable debut. Anna Cowan is an author to watch. Anne Gracie 

‘One of the most mesmerizing books I’ve read this year.’ Dear Author

Utterly absorbing, beautifully written, and full of insight and humor.’ Ruthie Knox

If you’re curious about what I’m working on next, here’s a sketch of my murderous debt-collector heroine.

    I read just about every regency era romance written. You have a real achievement in Untamed. It honors the tropes, yet reads as completely fresh. If you read the biographies and letters of the period, it is clear that no fiction could trump the boundaries they transgressed in real life. Untamed is closer to their truth than we’ll ever know. Congratulations!

      Thank you Lenore! I am completely fascinated with how wild and human especially the upper classes were back then. I think the “rules” of society look much more rigid to us now than they would have felt to them, then. It’s something I’m always trying to play with in my writing, and I’m so glad you enjoyed it in Untamed.

    Hi Anna!

    I read Untamed a few years back and instantly loved it! I had it as a Kindle book but I cannot access it or buy it anywhere else now. Could you please help me find and purchase another copy of this work please? Would love to re-read it again. Thanks!

    Amazing story.

      Hi Larissa, I’m so glad you connected with the story the way you did! It’s always wonderful to hear from readers who love Kit and Jude as much as I do. I recently received the rights for Untamed back, and so it’s currently unavailable for purchase. I know how disappointing it is as a reader not to be able to access a story you love. Perhaps there’s a way to access the copy you purchased via Kindle? I hope it will be available again before too long, so if you’re not able to retrieve your copy, keep an eye on this space! Warmly, Anna

        How strange to get an email notification from this old post in 2013! XD Your book does still appear in my kindle account–hopefully your other fan still has access to hers.

        And since apparently in 2013 I hadn’t read the book yet, allow me to add that I did read it, and LOVED it. I’ve forgotten a lot of Regencies in my time, but never forgot this one.

        Do add me to your newsletter list once you start it. 😉

    There is an ebook copy available at the Free Library of Philadelphia in the United States. I bought it for the collection as soon as it was available after years of waiting!

    I loved Untamed and just tried to find it for purchase online, but saw that it was unavailable everywhere. I’m glad that I stumbled on this blog and explanation. Do you happen to know when it’s expected to become available again? If not anytime soon and there’s a mailing notification list, please consider adding me to it.

      Hi Marsha, thanks for the kind words about Untamed. I don’t have a clear sense at the moment of when it will be available again, but hopefully in the next six months I’ll be able to share something more concrete! I’ll be sure to announce the newsletter here when I set it up. There was a paper edition published in Australia, so at a stretch it may be possible to chase one down online… Good luck, and I hope I have a positive update soon!

    Hi Anna, I’ve just finished my third reading of Untamed and love it more each time. I so want to recommend it to friends, and am very much hoping you’ll be making it available soon. It’s high on my list of all-time favourites.
