Welcome Linda Rae Sande author of The Pride of a Gentleman, a new early Regency romance.
Why did you write this book?
This is the second book in the epic series, “The Cousins of the Aristocracy”. Although it can be read as a standalone, it’s a follow-up to The Promise Of A Gentleman and features the four couples that ended up together at the end of that epic historical romance. Their stories certainly didn’t end there, as they’ve all been included as minor characters in some other of my books that take place in 1814 – 1818. After sixteen novels, my Regency world has grown rather large, but I’m careful to keep track of everyone and all their relations.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Regency romances, although I used to read science fiction exclusively for many years.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Susan Calvin from Isaac Asimov’s “Robot” series.
What are you working on at the moment?
Book 3 in “The Widows of the Aristocracy” series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
The Honeymoon of a Marquess is up next, a sensual tale featuring two couples that end up courting and marrying over the course of just a couple of days. As with most of my other books, it includes a good deal of humor and a surprising hero. The other hero is a “silver fox”. I love writing older characters and have begun featuring more of them in my books.

First comes matchmaking. Then comes marriage. Then comes a baby carriage … well, usually.
Life in 1802 London throbs with great expectations and unlimited potential. A house under renovation reveals its secrets, and newlyweds Gregory and Christiana Grandby embark on a wedding trip to Italy, determined to keep their secret.
Thomas Wellingham’s import business grows faster than he can manage with his brash and brave new wife Emma as head accountant.
Thomas’ best friend, Todd Vandermeer, accepts his offer of employment despite concerns about the viability of Wellingham Imports. His wife, Deborah, is expecting their first child, after all, and he needs the position.
Now that he’s completed his life’s work renovating every townhouse his wife, Sophia, owns, James Simpson is ready for a new job—that of father. Having informed Sophia he would like an heir, he’s surprised to discover plans for a family aren’t so far-fetched. But can she abide a late-in-life pregnancy and the possibility of heartbreak should it all go wrong?
Can best friends and family remain so when life doesn’t quite get it right? Are romance and marriage compatible, reconcilable? Perhaps, but only if they can overcome “The Pride of a Gentleman.”

The character of Lady Pendleton first appeared on my blog, Susana’s Parlour, in December 2012 as a way of introducing some of my less knowledgeable readers about Regency England and some of its more (in)famous characters. She appears in my first published story, Treasuring Theresa, published January 3, 2013. You can read the first post here: https://susanaellisauthor.wordpress.com/2012/12/29/susanas-adventures-with-lady-p-the-introduction/
Agatha Tate, Lady Pendleton, is one of those eccentric old women who pretty much does what she wants and dares the high sticklers of the ton to challenge her, which none is willing to do because of her status as a dowager countess with influential friends. She got into time-traveling after a falling-out with her husband, which you can read more about it Book 1 of the series, The Ultimate Escape http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Escape-Lady-Chronicles-Book-ebook/dp/B01DUWNMJA. Since then, she time-travels discreetly between the 19th and 21st centuries and both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, which is how I first met her. I am indebted to her for her willingness to regale me with all of her thoughts and opinions, as well as the details of some of her adventures in time-travel. More recently, Lady P condescended to accompany me to the past on a visit to Vauxhall Gardens. That experience is reported here: https://susanaellisauthor.wordpress.com/?s=Lady+P
Believing that she has been misplaced in time, Helena Lloyd travels back two hundred years in an attempt to find out where she belongs. Widowed father James Walker has no intention of remarrying until he makes the acquaintance of his daughter’s lovely new governess. Lady Pendleton, a time-traveling Regency lady herself, suspects that these two belong together. First, however, she must help Helena discover her true origins—and hopefully, a home where she belongs.

Welcome Madison Michael author of Bedeviled, a new
contemporary romance.
Why did you write
this book?
When I started the first book in the Beguiling Bachelor
series, “Bedazzled”, I did not intend to write a series. The
characters and the relationship of these four friends and their stories came to
life in my head until I could not stop writing about them. We have all seen
people who have so much power or wealth that they cannot be sure they are loved
for themselves. These four men know that they can count on each other because
they are all equally successful. I liked them despite their fortunes and I
wanted to show that with all they had, they were still vulnerable. I thought
their stories were worth telling. When I finished the first novel, the story of
Randall and Sloane was already begging to be written, so I finished “Beholden.”
By then I knew Alex would meet Charlotte in “Bedeviled” and I was
setting the stage in all the books for the final book in the series.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Historical Romance. I think I learn more about history from
romance novels than I ever learned in school. I love learning about other
times, what is happening politically and culturally, and I love the clothes and
manners.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I adore MacKayla Lane from the Fever Series by Karen Marie
Moning. She starts out a rather feather-headed bimbo but over the course of the
series she discovers her smarts and her strength. I love the way Mac survives
trials and tribulations with fortitude and even humor. Besdies all that, the
heat between her and Barrons sizzles.
What are you working
on at the moment?
I am just starting the fourth and final book in the
Beguiling Bachelors series. I introduced readers to four dashing men in “Bedazzled”
and I have been hinting at the relationship between Tyler and Regan for three
novels. It is time to tell the fourth story and close the book on these two.
What books will we
see from you in coming months?
If nothing gets in my way, I have a time travel book, or
perhaps short story, that I have been dying to write. I think it will be next,
but recently, with all the divisiveness around politics in America, I have a
political story that just started rattling around in my conscience. If I am
lucky, and diligent, they should both come out this year.
Please tell us about
your latest book.

Charlotte is on the run…
Charlotte Roche has escaped dangers threatening her Boston
life by accepting a job in Chicago. She dons a new name and a new personal for
a new beginning – but it is all built on lies. Thinking she is safe, Charlotte
drops her guard and sets her sights on her ruggedly handsome and wildly sexy
running partner, Alexander Gaines. Can she advance their relationship from the
track to the bedroom and still maintain her charade? Alex is wising up to her
and she fears that his probing questions will pierce her carefully rehearsed
story.
Alex, with unrevealed secrets of his own, struggles to hold
the irresistible Charlotte at arm’s length until Charlotte sustains a
suspicious injury. Alex seizes the opportunity to cuddle up to the sassy
beauty, risking discovery as well as his reputation, his fortune, and his
friends, not to mention his heart. Their pasts are closing in on them forcing
them to appeal to their friends, characters you’ve met and loved in “Bedazzled”
and “Beholden”. Can they build a bond with deceit on both sides? Join
them as they tackle the maze of half-truths and cover-ups threatening their
relationship and discover if their love is heavenly or bedeviled.

Welcome Claire Gem author of Spirits of the Heart, a new Supernatural
Suspense.
Why did you write this book?
I grew up in
Middletown, N.Y, where there was an abandoned mental asylum. The place always
haunted me. I’ve always been very interested in the history of mental health
care (which is a ghoulish history to be sure!), so it seemed the natural place
to set my next supernatural suspense.
Then, during the
writing of the book, I was visiting the property with my sister/cover designer,
taking pictures for the trailer. One particular building, Talcott Hall, kept
calling to me, though I couldn’t get too close because of the 8-foot high chain
link perimeter. Two weeks later, the building mysteriously burned to the
ground—after standing empty for almost 30 years. It was then I knew that
Spirits of the Heart must be written, to immortalize Talcott Hall.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romances,
particularly those with supernatural elements, especially ghosts. I’m a ghost
hunter at heart.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Films, not
books—Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
What are you working on at the moment?
My next novel is
called Pigments, and is another supernatural suspense. The blurb:
There’s an unsolved mystery in the world of art
history: which painting was Vincent Van Gogh’s last?
Rachel Parrish is a DNA analyst with peculiar a
psychic ability: psychometry. She can access the memories of a person from
something they touched, thereby leaving their genetic blueprint behind. She
also suffers from some unusual phobias. She’s terrified of visual art,
particularly of . . . paintings?
Duncan Nicklas is a sexy museum curator who comes
to Rachel’s aid when an unplanned museum visit overwhelms her. He’s searching
for his soulmate: another, like-minded antiquarian to complete his life. His
initial fascination with Rachel’s gift develops into something more—but she’s
terrified of paintings. He’s a museum curator. How can this ever work?
And then there’s Ethan Fagan—who’s determined to
claim Rachel as his own. To use her abilities to validate an obscure painting
in his grandfather’s collection. To secure his fortune. No matter what the
cost.
Pigments. It’s all in the touch.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to
Pigments, I’m working on a non-fiction book for fiction writers called The Road
to Publication. I’m hoping that will be released sometime before April 1st.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
