Who Said It Answered

So who said the following?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”
She glanced back up the stairs, where even now a tide of servants was rushing to the aid of their master. “I think his injury will be grave, for I’ve never missed before.”

That just happens to be Olivia SuttonOnce Tempted and Robert Danvers in Once Tempted.… Read more »

Who Said It: Challenge Accepted

You all know my books too well, so I’m digging in and hoping this one is a stumper. So Who Said It?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”

Another Round of Who Said It?

This one is probably pretty easy for you diehard fans, but I just love these lines. So,
Who Said It?

“You lied,” she said, going toe-to-toe with the man before her. “You told me he still loved me, wanted me.” She glanced over her shoulder and shuddered at the sight of him. “What he wants is a good bath and his ration of rum tossed overboard.”

Is it:
1) Olivia Sutton from Once Tempted
2) Lady Diana from Stealing the Bride
3) Lady Philippa from Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress

Make your best guess and I’ll post the answer … Read more »

Answer to Yesterday’s “Who Said It?”

So who said the following:

“Have you any idea of the danger you could find here? Of the nature of men?”
She plucked herself free. “I’m well aware of the nature of men. I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t.”

As much as it sounds like Roselie Stratton from Six Impossible Things, and most definitely like my favorite headstrong runaway daughter of a duke, Lady Arabella Tremont from Mad About the Major, this bit comes from a exchange between that gentleman pirate, Captain Colin Danvers, and the mysterious woman he meets and takes home from the Cyprian Ball, … Read more »

Who Said It?

“Have you any idea of the danger you could find here? Of the nature of men?”
She plucked herself free. “I’m well aware of the nature of men. I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t.”

1) Lady Arabella from Mad About the Major
2) Roselie Stratton from Six Impossible Things
3) Georgie from One Night of Passion

So, Who Said It?

Continuing my #ThrowbackThursday challenge, I’ve pulled another line or two out of one of my books, and now I’m asking you:
Who Said It?

“I disagree,” she said, drawing shocked looks from nearly everyone at the table. “My father was afraid of the company one finds in those schools. It was his belief that the polish that you think so highly of, Miss Cottwell, gives a young lady a false sense of pride and superiority that men find off putting. Would you say that was your experience?”

Is it:
1) Maureen Hawthorne from Brazen Temptress
2) Tally Langley from Confessions Read more »

It Takes a Hero

Countdown to 20

Inspiration comes from every facet of my life. The story behind IT TAKES A HERO (my 5th Avon Romance) came during a family dinner, while listening to my husband’s siblings teasing his unmarried sister about their upcoming visit to Lisdoonvarna in Ireland–an infamous village known for matchmaking.

Being a romance writer, what is not to love about a village with a long standing tradition of making happy endings? I was enchanted and story ideas started to bubble around. I just needed a hero and had the perfect one waiting in the wings. The one remaining unmarried Danvers … Read more »

Stealing the Bride

Countdown to 20

I failed#20thAvonRomance Countdown(3) to mention in my last post, (about my 3rd Avon Romance, One Night of Passion) that one of my favorite heroes of all time came to life while writing Colin and Georgie’s story. And if you’ve read these books you know I am talking about Temple. Or as he is formally known, the Marquis of Templeton.

I’ll never forget that moment. I had written the scene with Colin Danvers being tossed out on his ear by his betrothed, Lady Diana (who has just called off their wedding) and Colin is joined by his cousin, … Read more »

One Night of Passion

Countdown to 20

For my third Avon#20thAvonRomance Countdown(2) Romance in this countdown, I came up with Three Fun Facts You Might Not Know About ONE NIGHT OF PASSION.

Fun Fact #1

ONE NIGHT OF PASSION is my outlandish Regency take on Cinderella, so when Avon asked me to come up with a tag line for the book, I couldn’t resist being a bit wicked, coming back with:

“Sometimes Cinderella loses more than just her shoe …”

Honestly, I never thought they would ever use it. I was just being snarky. But they did, and it is still to this day, … Read more »
