Marguerite Kaye is a historical romance author who aspires to be like her heroines – darkly funny, subversive, feisty and quirky!

Hi, I’m Marguerite!

Thank you so much for signing up to my newsletter. 

If you already follow me on Instagram and/or Tiktok, you’ll know a bit about me – the stuff I’m willing to share, that is! But if you don’t…

I’ve been a full-time writer for nearly twenty years (I so wish I had made that up!) after escaping the rat race and taking a belated gap year. I have now written over fifty historical romances for Harlequin Mills & Boon. (My father isn’t particularly impressed by this as he maintains I just change the names of the hero and heroine.) I’ve also ‘collabor-written’ two historical novels with Sarah Ferguson, so far.

I live in Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland, officially the second wettest place in the UK, just pipped by the Atlantic Trench. Before you ask, I don’t use Karen from Mean Girls’ weather forecasting method! Thanks to my mum, my sisters and I are avid readers (you can check out my near 1000 reviews on Goodreads). It’s also thanks to my mum that I’m a keen dressmaker and an enthusiastic cook. Oh yes, and despite the terrible weather here in Argyll, I love my garden, especially since I never have to water it.

So, what else do you get in my newsletter?

As a welcome gift, you can download A Highland Tryst right now, which is a short story set at the romantic Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye.

Coming soon there will be other exclusive free reads such as epilogues, and ‘whatever happened to…’ stories about secondary characters from my older and current books.

And there’s more! (But not too much more, I promise.)

Regular (but not needy!) updates from me on my latest releases, with sneaky peaks into content, fun facts, insights into the story behind the story (also known as inspiration) and insider knowledge regarding my extensive research – which might be my favourite bit of the whole process.

I’ll also share snippets about my current writing and research, and a little of the trials and tribulations of my writer’s life.

And talking of a writer’s life, I’ll share some random stuff here, occasional recipes maybe, local history, and what I’m reading, and some pics.

I promise to try not to bore you, and I vow not to pop up in your inbox more often than one of those emails informing you that you have inherited a million pounds and if you’ll just send your bank details….. But seriously, I do hope you’ll stay with me, read with me, and share some of my writer’s life.
