TBT: Throwdown Challenge Rake v. Love Letters

Keeping up with my #TBT retrospective of The Bachelor Chronicles in preparation for the release of Mad About the Major, I’ve always found it interesting how divided readers can be about their deep and abiding affection for either This Rake of Mine or Love Letters from a Duke, the 2nd and 3rd installments in the Bachelor Chronicles series.

I call it Rake v. Love Letters.

Personally I think it really divides this way:

Team Mad Jack v. Team Felicity
Now what isn’t to love about Mad Jack Tremont? He’s a rake, (hence the title, This Rake of … Read more »

TBT: Something About Emmaline

With Mad About the Major only a few weeks away from arriving on an ereader near you, I thought I would look back at the Bachelor Chronicles–starting with the first book, Something About Emmaline.

If you’ve never read this one, I have to say: what are you waiting for? Emmaline is one of my most favorite heroines–I adore how they first meet–Alex arriving at his London town house to find it in the throes of being redecorated and a woman in his bed. A woman who claims to be his wife:

“Yes, thank you,” she replied. “When my

TBT: Love Letters from a Duke

People always say this is one of their favorites–with Felicity Langley being one of my most beloved heroines. Yet her story would not have been told without some help. So on this Throwback Thursday, let me introduce you to some of the books that helped me write Love Letters from a Duke:

LoveLettersFromADukeThe London Encyclopedia, ed. by Ben Weinreb and Christopher Hibbert. This is one of my favorite books to have within reach while I am writing a book set in London.

Names through the Ages, by Teresa Norman. I love the way this book divides names into … Read more »

5 Things About: Elizabeth Boyle

I used to do these Tuesday 5 Things interviews all the time, but got out of practice. My bad! But because so many of you have asked me to continue doing them, I’m gathering them in as I write this. In the past we found out 5 Things about some of my favorite friends and authors, including Katharine Ashe, Sarah MacLean, and Laura Lee Guhrke (who like so many authors, can’t count and answered way more than 5 questions! LOL), who all agreed to take a list of crazy questions from me and give up 5 of their secrets.… Read more »

A Scandalous Price

Avon loves to pick out a few ebooks each month and offer them at the crazy, ridiculous price of $1.99. So this month you can get one of my favorites, Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress for just $1.99.

This was the book everyone wanted me to write–Pippin and Dash’s book. Their first meeting in This Rake of Mine, on a smuggler’s beach, caused quite the stir. I got email after email after email, all saying the same thing: Write Pippin and Dash’s book. I also got one letter that scolded me for having a young girl of 15 … Read more »

Looking Back: Something About Emmaline

Since Avon Books has my electronic backlist on sale right now, I thought it would be fun to look back at the titles that are being offered for $4.99. Over the next 6-8 weeks, I am going to pick a book and look at the inspiration behind it, the characters and perhaps some of the challenges behind writing it.

Something About EmmalineI had to start with one of my favorites (yes, an author can have a favorite), Something About Emmaline. This was the first book in the Bachelor Chronicles series. Something you might not know is that this series was inspired … Read more »

Weaving Series

Someone in Dallas this weekend asked me if when I started a new series, such as Rhymes with Love, am I tempted to bring in old characters from my other series. The answer: Boy, am I ever!

Old, familiar characters are what makes writing a series fun.

Anyone who has read my Danvers series will notice I have a slight fondness for Temple. He appears in nearly every book. I adore that man, er, character, to the point that borders on obsession. I had thought that after giving him his own book, Stealing the Bride, that would be enough. … Read more »

Lord Andrew

Every once in a while, I come to a place in a book where I need an unexpected character. Someone I wasn’t planning on. Usually I have all my characters mapped into the outline, names picked and they wait in the wings until their curtain comes up.

Then a story will take a little bit of a twist and I find myself making a quick casting call.

In the case of Lord Langley is Back in Town, that character was Lord Andrew Stowe. Suddenly, I needed a young agent from the Foreign Office willing to help Langley. Basically, I … Read more »
