A very talented group of my friends have put out a massive historical romance box set (10 full-length novels). It's only available for a limited time, and it's extremely well-priced. So if you haven't tried these ladies, I highly recommend checking out TEMPTED BY HIS TOUCH!
Q&A with Erica Monroe
What’s your favorite
historical romance? I definitely have a few. Books that have really changed
how I approach writing are Bound by His
Touch by Meredith Duran, A Gentleman
Undone by Cecilia Grant, and Forever
and a Day by our own Delilah Marvelle (yes, I'm a fan girl!).
What is the first
romance novel you ever read? The
Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig. To this day, I have
a huge weak spot for spy romances.
Would you want to live
in the time you write about? What would you love? Hate?
Honestly, I don't think I'd like to live in the rookeries, LOL.
I love writing about them because it astounds me how these people can deal with
these harsh circumstances, this back-breaking poverty, and still have hope.
That's what I really wanted to show when writing the Rookery Rogues
series--love comes even in our darkest hours. But given that I'm pretty
outspoken, I don't think I'd fit well into the traditional roles offered to
women. I would definitely hate being pigeon-holed. I'd probably have to be like
the heroine in A Dangerous Invitation,
who sets herself up as a fence for stolen goods and learns how to shoot a flintlock
better than the men around her. I think I'd enjoy that!
If given the choice
between a duke, a rogue, or an alpha hero, which would you choose? In
literature, always a rogue. I like the unconventional views, and the dangerous
side. In reality, I gravitate toward beta heroes normally.
What tempts you?
(Chocolate, caviar, long walks on the beach…) Gluten free pastries, gluten
free cider, extra dirty vodka martinis, television, and a great deal on
Rapid fire round:
Designer purses or
Target special? Target, always! I am a thrift shop queen.
Heels or flip flops?
Ridiculously high stiletto heels, though I spend most days in ballet flats.
Rich or famous?
Rich. I don't think the paparazzi and I would have a grand love affair.
American hottie or sexy
Brit? Sexy Brit, though I married an American hottie who claims he'll learn
to do a British accent (11 years later, I have yet to hear it).
Where’s your happy
place? Being at home with my husband, surrounded by our two dogs and our
Excerpt from A
Daniel took one look at the bannister, then at her, and tugged
her closer to him. His hold was strong, but not unrelenting. She was flush
against him, so close she could feel the beating of his heart. Warmth replaced
brisk wind, and his presence blotted out loneliness until she was part of
something greater, something powerful beyond herself.
Kate feared that heady sensation. Passion didn’t stick to
predetermined routes and checklists.
When he spoke, his breath tickled her skin. His voice rumbled
in her ear. “I don’t want to lose you again.”
A tremble tore through her. In those few months after he left,
she’d woken with those words on her lips, whispers from dreams wherein he’d
fulfilled his promise to return for her. He was here, and she forgot the reasons
why she should loathe him.
Everything but the smell of bergamot and cloves disappeared.
