Tell us something fun about the relationship conflict.
Well, Sabine is a (reluctant) French counterfeiter threatening England’s stability and Richard is an aristocratic English spy, so there’s plenty of conflict between them! Add a sizzling unwanted attraction and forced proximity as they work together to uncover an even greater threat, and sparks begin to fly!
Where do you get your ideas?
Lots of my ideas come from real historical events or people. There are so many fascinating things I uncover in the course of my research. I love playing the ‘what if’ game, and imagining different adventurous scenarios into which I can drop my poor heroes and heroines!
What are your favorite historical romance tropes?
Most of my favorite tropes are included in the Secrets & Spies series! Both ‘To Steal a Heart’ and ‘A Counterfeit Heart’ have ‘enemies to lovers’ tropes and criminal heroines, because I love the inherent potential for lots of snarky banter and simmering unwanted attraction, and ‘A Raven’s Heart’ has the ‘best friend’s little sister’ / forbidden lust aspect, which I love too. I hope readers enjoy them as much as I like writing them!
We want to hear from you!
