We Are Family: Sisters in History from the Brontes, the Jeromes, and More!

Mercy by Deneane ClarkToday we're joined by author Deneane Clark, whose Mercy has just been released. Mercy is the most recent release in Deneane's historical romance series about sisters, the youngest of whom just happens to be named Mercy. Mercy wants to find love, as her sisters have, and knows just who she wants—because she's wanted him since she was thirteen years old. In basing her series on sisters, Deneane is calling upon real-life sisters from history who found success in love and marriage, and she's here to talk about those sisters today. Thanks, Deneane!

There is something oddly fascinating about sisters. All familial relationships are special and have their distinct characteristics, but the ones between sisters stand out. Your sister can be both your closest friend and your greatest rival—often at the same time.

The six sisters in my Virtue Series grow up motherless yet somehow manage to burst onto the social scene of Regency London and make a clean sweep of the very best men England has to offer. All the men are titled, good-looking, dauntingly intelligent and provokingly charming. Such is the stuff of romantic fiction, right? That would never happen in real life, would it?
