Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review
"[An] outstanding series launch. ... Hamilton expertly
balances the page-turning detection with the
story of a hypocritical society where women,
whether they are scullery maids or orphans, rarely get
to make their own decisions. "―Publishers

There was never a time
when I didn't want to be a writer, and it was how I always defined myself.
But even when I wasn't writing -- which at first was most
of the time! -- I was reading. Since the moment my mom handed
me an Agatha Christie book when I was twelve,
I've been a devoted mystery fan, and the passion lives on!
seem odd, then, that I started my writing career as a Regency
romance author, gradually moving to the paranormal romance,
and then historical mystery writing. I truly enjoyed my time writing
romance, and I believe that it was the perfect training ground to
force me to focus on creating character.
the urge to write and become published in mysterty still held
me captive. I finally achieved my life's dream with the publication
of the first Vintage Kitchen
Mystery: A Deadly
Grind, in May of 2012.
from writing, I have a lot of hobbies and passions. I collect
vintage bowls, especially Pyrex and kitchen utensils. I also
have a sizable collection of teacups. Cooking and baking muffins
-- of course! -- are beloved pastimes.
I have the best friends and family in the world, and I am passionately
fond of tea and anything sweet, especially brownies ;-) I enjoy
hobbies: crochet, cross-stitch, and beading, among other crafts.
writing takes precedence over everything, and I truly love
hearing from readers, treasuring the friends I've made over the

Donna Lea Simpson's NEW book!
Classic Regency Romances Book #22
Preparing to sail from Jamaica to England, Savina
Roxeter knows she should be looking forward to marrying
her betrothed and settling into a quiet and comfortable life among the
ton, but she can only despair at the thought of leaving the lush and
beautiful island she loves for the staid confines of London society.
Once on the high seas, however, Savina's thoughts turn only to survival,
as their ship is commandeered and she and her party are left stranded
on a primitive island with meager provisions and little hope of rescue.
Determined not to succumb to their misfortune, the group set
about assessing their surroundings and preparing for the rigorous challenge
of the days and nights ahead. And while her imperious fiance', his viperish
sister, and even her own father bemoan the harsh conditions, Savina thrives
as she becomes more attuned to the pulse and rhythm of nature-- and the
powerful desire she feels in the company of her fiance's secretary,
As the two are inexorably drawn together in this primal paradise, Savina
casts aside her notions of impropriety and allows herself to respond
to Anthony's elemental strength and innate understanding of what's truly
important. And as the promise of a new and passionate future with Anthony
becomes impossible to ignore, she will come to discover that surrending
to their burgeoning love may be the only rescue she truly needs...
