What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Hello everyone! The first thing to say is I’m so excited to be here. This is all very new for me; I’m normally at the day job. Helping to create positive change is really important to me so as well as getting involved in lots of community projects I work in Charity Management. When I’m not at work I’m often being a princess, pirate, monster or whatever takes my four year olds fancy.
What book are you going to tell us about today? Is it part of a series? If so, what's the order the books should be read in?
* My first book Duty to Love, a regency ménage, is stand alone, but I enjoyed writing it so much I’ve started another set in a similar period.
How'd you/your muse come up with this story?
* I’m a huge Jane Austen fan - when I was younger I named my dog Darcy - so writing a regency romance really appealed. I also love ménage, as I enjoy reading a man’s point of view and feeling the depth of his emotion, with two men there is all the more of this. The story itself came from the question I posed myself of how might a happily ever after ménage actually come about during regency times. When I first started thinking about this story it was important to me that it be well crafted and convincing: a regency ménage that doesn’t require a complete suspension of belief. I hope I’ve succeeded.
Describe the hero in five words.
* Noble, dominant, caring of others.
Describe the heroine in five words.
* Innocent, passionate, all natural woman.
If ménage/multiple partners, then pick a third hero or heroine to describe in five words.
* Second Hero ~ Impetuous, dashing, and very endearing.
Who's your favorite character in the book & why?
* That’s really hard to say, the three central characters are so closely bound together. At a push I’d say Arthur as he is the lead hero and it is his honourable intentions and giving nature that allows love to grow between the three. I admire Arthur, but have a soft spot for James.
What's your favorite line in the story?
* The one I most enjoyed writing was when James said this to Arthur: “I would be in agony. I am already in agony. If I thought I could kill you I would call you out. If I thought I could hurt you the first you would have seen of me would have been my fist.”
A look into the story
* A craftily worded contract and fate finds Arthur, Earl of Hentonury, having to marry not the lady he expected but her younger sister Amelia, the woman he knows his brother James loves and hoped to marry. Arthur cares for both Amelia and James how can he choose between his love for them and his duty?
* James may be the younger son, but he has taken leave from the Army and will fight for Amelia.
* Torn between her feelings for two brothers Amelia wishes to marry Arthur but can't bear to lose James.
* Is there any chance the three of them can find happiness together? Will duty or love win out?
* James's hands tightened on her, pulling her closer, until their hips pressed as close as their chests. Amelia felt breathless, heady. It was a novel sensation. She'd never been one for allowing her corset to be laced too tight. She'd never imagined Arthur could make her feel like fainting.
* But, oh God, it wasn't Arthur kissing her. Amelia jerked trying to free herself of James's hold. Arthur was watching her. He was watching her kiss another man. She was kissing her fiancé's brother while he watched.
