book coverThe Secret of my Seduction

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.

author photoWhat 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?

Leave a comment below!


  • Carol Bisig

    I think it depends, if the Duke takes care of his family, and his tenants, and his place in The House of Lords, then I totally respect him. A self made man by honest hard work is sexy too, no criminal activity please.

  • Deborah Bates

    The self-made man is the better hero. He knows exactly how hard it was to earn the money and power so he respects it more. The one that inherits it feels entitled to it and is more likely to squander it on frivolous things.

    Also, one that inherits power tends to look down their nose at people. Whereas a self-made man looks up to people because he’s been at the bottom and knows what it feels like to have people scrape you off their shoe.

  • Lail

    The self made man is always sexier! Who doesn’t want a man who knows hard work and how to get what he wants! He’s much better than a Duke who has had everything handed to him without knowing life like us commoners. Lo

  • Laurie Gommermann

    I just finished reading Cheryl Bolen’s THE BRIDE WORE BLUE. Loved Thomas Moreland a self made millionaire man.

    I admire a man who has to work to attain a goal , in this case wealth. He’s driven , energetic, hardworking and detrimined. One who has things come to easily can be lazy, arrogant and rude.

  • Mel K.

    Either! As long as he’s intelligent, patient, and has a good sense of humor.

    *Caroline Linden is an auto-buy for me. She inspired me to write screenplays.
