Home— Seattle, WA. Elizabeth Boyle's novels combine romance, adventure, and history. Her first book, Brazen Angel, was published after winning the Dell Diamond Debut Award, and then went on to win honors for the year's best debut novel from the Romance Writers of America. Before establishing her writing career, Boyle worked as a paralegal. Her job involved working on fraud and police misconduct cases, providing her with interesting background information for some of her novels. The Dell Diamond Debut Contest guarantees a publishing contract for the author of the winning manuscript.
When Boyle found out she was a finalist, she was elated, but she also faced a daunting challenge. The judges had read her first chapters; she was supposed to have the complete manuscript ready to give to them, but she had not yet finished it when she was informed she was a finalist.
Boyle raced to finish her book in time to meet the deadline, and her husband bought her a crucial thirty-six extra hours by flying from Seattle to New York City to personally deliver the manuscript to the contest. This Rake of Mine features a typical Regency romance story line.
The heroine, Miranda Mabberly, finds her honor called into question when she is publicly kissed by Lord John Tremont, notorious for his womanizing. Sent away in disgrace, she takes on a new name and starts a new life as an instructor at a ladies' finishing school. After several years, Lord John arrives at the school to enroll his niece there. He fails to recognize Miranda from the past, but falls in love with her. Harriet Klausner, reviewing the book for Best Reviews, called it a "fine historical pot boiler" with an "admirable heroine.
Numerous reviewers found Boyle in top form with her book Something about Emmaline. Emmaline's bold move surprises Alexander, who had created the identity of the Baroness in order to meet demands that he marry, even though he really preferred to go on leading a quiet, sheltered life on his own. Alexander agrees to go along with Emmaline's ruse, and finds himself in love with her as well. Reviewing the novel in Best Reviews, Suan Wilson called it "a clever and original story with a twist at the end that will surprise and tickle readers.
Boyle delivers with a wild and outrageous tale. His Mistress by Morning blends romance with the paranormal, in a story involving a magic ring that will grant one wish. As she goes to sleep wearing the ring, Charlotte Wilmont wishes that she were the woman loved by Sebastian Marlowe, a local nobleman.
Her wish is granted, but in an unexpected way. Sebastian does not fall in love with Charlotte, nor does Charlotte take on the identity of Sebastian's fiancee, Lavinia Burke. Instead, Charlotte awakes to find herself in the body of a courtesan in London who is, in fact, Sebastian's true love.
Boyle's depiction of Charlotte's struggle to adapt to her new identity is "nothing short of brilliant," according to John Charles in Booklist.
