Publication Day - The Possibility of Scandal

It is my great pleasure to announce that my tenth traditional Regency romance - The Possibility of Scandal - has been published today by Uncial Press. It is available from Uncial Press, Amazon Kindle and many other ebook suppliers.

~When the Haythe twins undertake a mad adventure, there is always the likelihood of disaster.~
The first review came out a few weeks ago, and was most gratifying:

"Ms. McLeod has made the Regency era her specialty, and her research shows. She also imbues her work with originality and creativity. Her plotting and characterization make THE POSSIBILITY OF SCANDAL a riveting read that will draw readers not only into the colorful theatrical world of the times, but into the lives of a varied group of personalities. And if you are interested in the Regency era, make a visit to"

When I began to write 'The Possibility of Scandal' I immersed myself in Regency theatre, although the theatre that the Haythe twins encounter is not at all typical.

This engraving of a theatre from the book Old and New London influenced the appearance of the Haythes' Fortune Theatre in Rotherham, although I added a portico.
I collected pictures of theatre auditoriums in order to make the Haythes' theatre very different from the usual.
Opera House Haymarket 1809

Royal Coburg Theatre 1818

Sadlers Wells Theatre 1810

It has been an interesting adventure researching and writing The Possibility of Scandal.
