The English Brothers by Katy Regnery


Katy Regnery, Amazon bestselling author, has always loved telling a good story and credits her mother with making funny, heartwarming tales come alive throughout her childhood. A lifelong devotee of all romance writing, from Edwardian to present-day, it was just a matter of time before Katy tried her hand at writing a love story of her own.

As it turned out, one love story turned into a series of six Heart of Montana romances, following the love lives of the Yellowstone-based Lindstrom siblings. When Katy’s fans asked her to turn up the heat, she wrote the New Adult/Adult Contemporary hybrid romance, Playing for Love at Deep Haven, which offered steamier romance to her readers. Katy is also proud to offer The Vixen and the Vet, a standalone romance that benefitted Operation Mend, an organization that helps heal the returning wounded of our armed services. The English Brothers is Katy’s second series and first indie series.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories of all are the messy and unexpected ones.

Breaking Up with Barrett

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of five books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Alex. He's a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton, because he's wicked hot, but super awkward around girls.)

Barrett English, aka "the Shark," is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett's childhood estate. The daughter of his family's gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege, but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom.

When business partners suggest that a fiancee might soften Barrett's image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the "job" of fiancee. And while love wasn't necessarily on Barrett's radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves?

Falling for Fitz

Falling for Fitz is the second of five books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are absolutely not on the look-out for love.

(Except Barrett, who fell in love when he was eight-years-old. And Fitz, who met the girl of his dreams at nineteen. And maybe even Weston, who just doesn't know it yet.)

Fitz English and Daisy Edwards fell in love during one magical summer when they were teenagers. When something tragic happens at the end of the summer, Daisy tells Fitz she never wants to see him again. Despite his feelings for her, he respects her wishes and for almost a decade Fitz and Daisy go their separate ways.

Nine years later, when Daisy moves home to Philadelphia, they meet again, and both are shocked to discover that the feelings they had that summer are just as deep and real today. There's a little snag, however. It seems that Daisy is engaged to someone else, and she's come home to get married.

Can Fitz get Daisy to fall for him all over again before it's too late? Only if Daisy can learn to trust the man who shattered her heart once upon a time.

Anyone but Alex

Anyone but Alex is the third of five books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Sort of. Barrett and Fitz are officially off the market, Alex has sampled every piece of available ass from Rittenhouse Square to the Liberty Bell, Stratton can’t see to see what’s right in front of him, and don't even get me started on the youngest English brother, Weston...)

Alex English, the well-known man whore of the country club set, has always preferred to play the field, eschewing a chance with Miss Right for a satisfying quickie with Miss Right-Now. But after seeing his two older brothers take the plunge, something has been aching inside of Alex, and no amount of casual sex is filling the void in his heart.

Jessica Winslow, whose older brothers are best friends with the English brothers, has returned home from a fifteen-year stay in England, only to find herself face-to-face with her childhood crush, Alex English, on her first night home. She’s heard all the rumors, but Jessie remembers the older boy who was so kind to her as a child, and can’t help reaching out to Alex in friendship.

Between disapproving brothers, scheming exes, and the biggest business deal of English & Sons’ illustrious history, Alex and Jessie’s budding romance is going to be put to the test. The question is…will it be strong enough to be their happily-ever-after?


Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I went to the 2014 NEC RWA conference in Boston in May, and Bella Andre showed up at a talk I gave on small press publishing. Following my talk, she asked if I wanted to get a drink, and since she’s my IDOL, this was a huge moment for me. We talked for over an hour and she gave me some really amazing advice. After that hour I went back up to my hotel room and outlined the English Brothers.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
It took me 12 days to write Breaking Up with Barrett, 14 days to write Falling for Fitz and 25 days to write Anyone but Alex.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love getting so immersed into a story that I see it like a movie in my head as I’m writing. I see the shiny black of coat buttons, the droplet of sweat on my hero’s lip, the goosebumps raised on my heroine’s belly. I see it all, and I love it that it’s spilling out of my brain fully formed. My fingers can barely keep up, but it’s exhilarating.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Deadlines. I mostly publish indie now, so all of my deadlines are self-imposed, but I’m very aggressive. In addition to the six traditionally published books I released this year, I also released six indies. That’s a lot of production and I need to stay on top of my deadlines to make it happen. From April 15-Aug 1 of this year, I wrote four novels and one novella from scratch, and launched five books. That was a little too aggressive. LOL! Since then, I’ve given myself a little more largesse.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Oh, wow. I don’t know. I might like to see what it feels like to make it REALLY BIG and be E.L. James or Sylvia Day for a day. I mean, do I even want that kind of success? It intimidates me and beguiles me at the same time. I’d love to at least know what it feels like.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
I think my fridge is pretty clean! Hold on a sec…Oh, yikes! I found a quarter wedge of lime jammed back between the crisper and the back wall of the fridge. At least two years old. Dehydrated and hard as a rock, but happily, not moldy! J

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I have a new standalone I’m working on called Never Let You Go, and I as long as readers keep enjoying The English Brothers, I’ll consider writing The Winslow Brothers (which would be a continuation of that world.) Ideally, I’d like to publish two standalone novels and three or four series novels a year. So readers can definitely expect a lot more books!
