What was the best part about writing this story?
I have always been fascinated by the French Revolution. The best part about writing this story has been reading more about the French Revolution and learning all the interesting little tidbits of information about the royal family, the revolutionaries, and the guillotine. It really was a study in what makes a revolution and why one goes wrong.
How much research do you do?
I did extensive research for this book and indeed the series as a whole. I read biographies of Marie Antoinette and books about the only surviving member of the French royal family, Marie Therese. In a sense I feel like I’ve been preparing to write this book since I was in fifth grade and read my first short biography about Marie Antoinette. My interest in the period and the people involved has never waned and the more I learned the more I asked what if. And then the more ideas for stories came to me, of course!
What are your favorite historical romance tropes?
I love fish out of water. Almost every single one of my books deals with this trope in one fashion or another. Traitor in Her Arms features this trope because both the hero and heroine are British citizens thrust into the frenzy of the Reign of Terror in France.
We want to hear from you!
