Today, I’m thrilled to have Caroline Linden here on the blog, sharing a brand new historical romance release with us!
No one suspects plain, sensible Bathsheba Crawford of being the anonymous author of a wickedly scandalous series of naughty novels. But she is.
When she approaches her publisher, rakish Liam MacGregor, with an indecent proposal, he’s shocked. But he accepts.
The rules for their affair are simple: complete secrecy, and no romantic attachment. But the more they see each other…the more pleasure they find in each other’s arms… the harder it is to follow the rules.
Series Name: Scandals
Genre: Historical Regency
Heat level: One or two love scenes
$0.99 USD – $0.99 CAN – £0.99 GBP
What was your inspiration for this story?
Readers requested it! My previous book (Six Degrees of Scandal) ended with a woman sitting down to try writing a sexy romance novel, more or less. I thought that was the end of the whole series, but several readers wrote to me asking what happened to her. And on a long layover in the airport, a story idea sprouted and grew.
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
No, not at all! I studied math in college, which I personally found very romantic since I met my husband in the math department…when he swept me off my feet by asking if I’d like to work the problem set together. I fell like a ton of bricks. It’s all thanks to him that I know what happily-ever-after looks like, which only proves that math is vitally romantic, when done right.
What are your favorite historical romance tropes?
I really love a good frenemies/enemies to lovers story. That and marriage of convenience stories. Both situations force the hero and heroine to confront their own (often wrong) ideas about themselves and about each other. If they have to work together to solve a mystery of some sort, I am 100% hooked. I’m sure it’s all because of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.
We want to hear from you!
Who’s a better hero: the duke who inherited land and power, or a self-made man who earned everything he’s got?
