About Mary Lancaster

Meet the Author


Mary Lancaster is a USA Today bestselling author of historical romance and romantic historical fiction. Her first literary love was historical fiction, a genre which she relishes mixing up with romance and adventure in her own writing. Several of her novels feature actual historical characters as diverse as Hungarian revolutionaries, medieval English outlaws, and a family of eternally rebellious royal Scots. But she is probably best known for her light, fun Regency romances.
