Dark, Suspenseful Historical Romances
Currently, Erica is writing the Rookery Rogues, a series of books tied together by poorer neighborhoods of London and depicting scoundrels, thieves, fallen women, and feisty heroines. It's historical romance where everyone has to duke it out in the masses (no actual dukes harmed in the making of these books). She also is working on Covert Heiresses, a series about the children of a duke who are England's top spies during the Regency.
“If I could inject this book directly into my veins, I would...This book is the perfect escape. It's rich in setting and suspense, and it's a romance between two beautifully damaged people.” A+ Review
Smart Bitches, Trashy Books - on A Dangerous Invitation
"Riveting story, superb characters, stellar prose: a remarkable book! Monroe is a supremely gifted writer: her prose is flawless, fluid and elegant; her vocabulary choices are impeccable and suited to the characters; she possesses a perfect understanding of the class differences and customs of the era. The relationship between Thaddeus and Poppy is beautiful and realistic; their love story took my breath away. The plot is intricate, exciting, and comes to a logical and rather shocking conclusion. Secrets in Scarlet is a fabulous book that no one should miss!"
Fresh Fiction - on Secrets in Scarlet
"This had so much going for it. Just barely pre-Victorian/tail end of the Georgian era! Non-nobles! Slums! Delightful references to the Disney animated B&B! Other references to La Belle et La Bete! Turning other references on their heads! An exploration of where the line between "victim" and "survivor" is!" A Review

My Book Addiction - on Beauty and the Rake
"Monroe creates an entertaining albeit slightly dark world filled with spies, humor, wit, intrigue, suspense, and an emotionally rich romance. Though heavily character driven, Monroe does a wonderful job of balancing the dynamic characterization of her characters with a story rich in details and plotlines."
