Over the years Eloisa has created all kinds of fun extras for readers, from keepsakes and swag, to web-exclusive features and bonus scenes. You’ll even find fabulous Georgian paper dolls, ready for you to print out and decorate. Team Eloisa adds Extras all the time; be sure to stay connected so you don't miss any new bonus content.
This page is organized by type, as described by Eloisa. Clicking past the first page will give you more content (in most cases), and handy share buttons so you can post your favorites. Enjoy!
Bonus ScenesCurious about whether Miss Charlotte Tatlock from An Affair before Christmas ever fell in love? Read the extra chapter! There’s even a free short story in here, as well as deleted scenes from My American Duchess and other novels — and more are added all the time. I hope you enjoy having a bit more time with my characters!
The Inside Take
This is where I tell you interesting connections between characters as well as cool historical facts that you might enjoy. But do be aware that these are written for people who have already read each book; the outcome of the books are no secret. Please do not read any of The Inside Take posts if you're wary of knowing who is paired with whom!
Wonderful actors read aloud my novels if you listen to my memoir Paris in Love, you have me as the reader! All my books are available in audio, and I am slowly but surely adding excerpts here, in an easily browsable list. Happy listening!
Would you like to see a painting of the hero and heroine of this book? Almost all of Eloisa's novels feature a second "cover" either on the back cover, or inside the front cover. In the publishing industry, this is called a "Stepback" and some of Eloisa's are just stunning. It's interesting to see how the style of painting has changed over the years, too!
These are fun! Curious about how I met my husband? Or what’s it’s like to be at a photography shoot for a romance cover? Did you know that I “starred” in a documentary about the romance industry? There are all sorts of fun videos to watch...enjoy!
Since I’m a professor in my other life, I’m always writing pieces for magazines, blogs, and newspapers. You’ll find essays here that deal with everything from the craft of writing, historical research, raising children—and living in Paris!
These gorgeous keepsakes are available to download and print.
I love to play around in Photoshop! I create lots of eCards, which I post to Facebook and other social networks. Here are a few—it’s fun to see how I’ve improved over the years!
Just for Fun
This is a bit of a catch-all category. You’ll find creative challenges (crossword, anyone?), as well as an Essex Sisters family tree, links to the music Edie was playing in Once Upon a Tower, explanations about how Julia Quinn’s characters crept into my books, and more.
I make mistakes all the time. But my wonderful readers catch them within hours of publication. I love hearing about them (and we do fix them in future editions), so if you find any mistakes not yet listed, please contact me!
After I fell in love with Alessandro, Europe became my backyard. As well as spending a year in Paris (and writing a memoir of the year, Paris in Love), we spend every summer in his hometown, Florence, Italy. Want to see pictures of my travels? How about some advice if you’re planning a trip to Italy? Here’s the place to look—I will be adding to this section all the time!
