Only have a minute but want to now about the New Entangled Historical releases, including Duchess Decadence? Here’s my four-question interviews with Mia Marlowe, Ally Broadfield, Nicola Davidson and myself.
First up? Mia! Welcome, Mia! Please give us The Madness of Lord Westfall in one line.
When Pierce Langdon, Lord Westfall fell from an oak tree as a boy, the accident so rattled his brain, it left him hearing voices. Now he’s fallen again…this time for a totally unsuitable woman!
Delicious! Which came first, The Madness of Lord Westfall’s plot, premise or people?
My hero came first. The Madness of Lord Westfall is Order of the M.U.S.E. book two, and we first meet Pierce in book one, The Curse of Lord Stanstead. I was fascinated by the idea of writing a hero who’d spent time confined to Bedlam.
Indeed, that *is* a fascinating challenge. What do you love about The Madness of Lord Westfall?
The book is all about redemption and the way love binds up the hurts of our pasts and makes us whole.
Hear! Hear! Before you go, will you share your favorite advanced review quote for The Madness of Lord Westfall?
I’m thrilled to share that there have been lots of terrific ones, but one of my favs was the review with a 5 star rating from a Goodreads reader: “I never thought I would start with this sentence… I fell for a man who has been in a prisoner in Bedlam. But when you read this wonderful tale you will too.”
Oh, that is just perfect! Thank you for stopping by, Mia! Next up, my two Entangled Scandalous release-day sisters Ally & Nicola. First, Ally. Welcome Ally! Please give is Say You’ll Love Me in one line.
Lady Abigail Hurst enlists her friend’s brother, Edmund Townsend, the Marquess of Longcroft, to help determine whether her betrothed is guilty of murder, but before the investigation concludes, Abigail discovers with Edmund the kind of love she always wanted…a little too late.
Oh, I love a good betrothed-to-the-wrong-man story! Which came first, Say You’ll Love Me’s plot, premise or people?
The premise. One evening while I was cleaning the kitchen, an idea, or rather a conundrum popped into my head. How would a Regency lady react if she found out her betrothed might have murdered his mistress? She could immediately end the engagement, but what if he had been her childhood sweetheart, and their fathers were close friends who lived on neighboring estates? Would she stick around to see whether he was innocent before deciding what to do, and if he was proven innocent, could she get past the fact that he had a mistress?
I can imagine that got the plot wheels churning! What do you love about Say You’ll Love Me?
I love Edmund, the hero. He’s so wonderfully awkward and clueless about matters of the heart, yet extremely capable in all other areas.
*Big grin* he sounds like a wonderful hero. Before you go, will you share your favorite advanced review quote for Say You’ll Love Me?
“Love, romance and a mystery to be solved, that and exceptional writing made this book an amazing one.” ~wrecked_life, Goodreads review
High praise! Thank you for coming, Ally! Nicola! Your turn. Welcome Nicola! Please give us One Forbidden Knight in one line?
After her physician father’s mysterious death, Catherine Linwood must navigate the intrigue of Queen Mary’s court with a handsome stranger who could save or destroy her.
Edge-of-your-seat wonderful! Which came first, One Forbidden Knight’s plot, premise or people?
Premise! I chanced upon an article about Queen Mary Tudor, who had not one, but two phantom pregnancies. It got me thinking, what might a fervent Catholic queen on a rocky throne do to keep her secrets – even to my heroine, her loyal lady in waiting? Naturally my hero had to be the queen’s enemy, an illegitimate Protestant. And so it began…
I’m breathless just reading the description. What do you love about One Forbidden Knight?
I love the blend of real life events, suspense, sweet romance and wickedness. 🙂
Sounds like a recipe for a great read. Before you go, will you share your favorite advanced review quote for One Forbidden Knight?
“From the start this reader was enchanted with Catherine and Brandon’s characters. Their escapades and steaming chemistry was beyond scorching. Action aplenty throughout the read and a story that I wanted to just keep reading.”
OOOH! Beyond Scorching. Love it. Thanks for stopping by, Nicola! And so it is down to me! Here is Duchess Decadence in one line:
A disgraced duchess must confront the wounds of her past if she is to protect her duke from a malevolent murderer and so she takes the greatest gamble of her life.
As to which came first, Duchess Decadence’s plot, premise or people…
From the very first draft of Lady Vice, the first book in the Furies Series, I knew the hero, Max, worked closely with a powerful Duke. To complicate matters, I made that Duke’s estranged wife the heroine’s close friend. Both the Duke and the Duchess jumped into the pages of Lady Vice in all their prickly complexity. It was a true challenge to find a way for two proud and wounded people to come together once again.
Of course, I’ll share what I love about Duchess Decadence…
My favorite part of writing the series has been showing the value and closeness of female friendship, especially in times of hardship. For a duchess getting in touch with her sensual side, the support and information only true friends could share proves essential. And I love what happens when a stitched up Duke lets the floodgates open.
And finally, my favorite advance review quote for Duchess Decadence was:
“We’ve seen the Duke and Duchess interact with each other through each of the other Furies books and I knew that when they finally got back together, it would be explosive. LaCapra did not disappoint me!!” -Amy A, Goodreads. What a pleasure and a relief that was to read!
Thanks for stopping by!
