Today we're excited to spotlight Lakeshire Park (Megan Walker).
Read on for more about Megan, plus a guest post!
Meet Megan Walker!
Megan Walker was raised on a berry farm in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, where her imagination took her to times past and worlds away. While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she married her one true love and started a family. But her imaginings of Regency England wouldn't leave her alone, so she picked up a pen. And the rest is history. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and three children.
Meet Lakeshire Park!
Amelia Moore wants only one thing—to secure the future happiness of her younger sister, Clara. With their stepfather’s looming death, the two sisters will soon be on their own—without family, a home, or a penny to their names. When an invitation arrives to join a house party at Lakeshire Park, Amelia grasps at the chance. If she can encourage a match between Clara and their host, Sir Ronald, then at least her sister will be taken care of.
Little does she know that another guest, the arrogant and overconfident Mr. Peter Wood, is after the same goal for his own sister. Amelia and Peter begin a rivalry that Amelia has no choice but to win. But competing against Peter—and eventually playing by his rules—makes Amelia vulnerable to losing the only thing she has left to claim: her heart.

Five comfort items you'd need to survive a week in the world of Lakeshire Park
Let's be honest, the reality of our favorite Regency Romance novels isn't always as pleasant as we'd like to admit. Time travel sounds amazing though, right? If you were to travel backward in time to Amelia Moore's era-- Regency, England, 1820, what are five things you should bring with you?
1.) Underwear. Ladies, you're going to want your own underwear. In Regency times, research shows that some women went without undies completely, with others wore what were two-part, one portion tied to each leg. Y'all don't want that. Trust me.
2.) Toilet paper. All that toilet paper you stocked up on for COVID19 . . . pack a couple rolls. You're going to have to pee in a bowl between your legs. At least give yourself the comfort of toilet paper.
3.) Deodorant. Everrryyybody stinks. Even your new boyfriend. Bring a stick for him while you're at it.
4.) Medicine. At least bring some Ibuprofen. I don't know about you, but if I've got a migraine, I don't want someone putting smelling salts in my face. I want the good stuff.
5.) Toothpaste. Sure, they had tooth powder back in the Regency era, but it was no Crest or Colgate. Probably snag your own toothbrush too. Theirs were made of cattle bone and swine bristles.
Oh, and bring a good pair of Nikes. You're going to be doing a lot of walking. And maybe some Chapstick if you meet your true love. And Mace spray, if you’re wrong about him.
