author photoWhat was the hardest part about writing this story?

My hero has a learning disability: dyscalculia, a brain-based condition that makes learning or understanding math difficult. Portraying a character with this condition, without making him appear like a victim of his disability, took a lot of research, and a lot of hard thinking and planning.

Do you write every day?

I try to write five days a week, Monday through Friday, in the mornings. Some days that’s harder to do than others! But I put my butt in the chair…

Who was your first auto-buy historical romance author?

Courtney Milan. I love the combination of her humor, her respect for history, and her determination to portray women who ACT, rather than women who are acted upon. And I love that her heroes love and respect her heroines for their strengths, not for their weaknesses.

author photoTell us something fun about the relationship conflict.

I’m not sure how many "one night stands" happened in the old west but this one was super fun to write. I really liked that Katie was more the aggressor when it came to their passion and that it was Scott who felt the responsibility. That it was Scott who demanded they do the right thing.

Do you plot your books before you write?

Lol. Not much. With this one I knew they’d sleep together immediately and that his past would be the conflict between them. Other than that, the book tends to come as I write. I find it really hard to plot ahead. If I know too much before I start then I’m bored and don’t feel I need to tell the story. Of course, this way is much more stressful but I also think it’s more fun.

Who was your first auto-buy historical romance author?

Sandra Brown. I LOVE Another Dawn. Love that story. And also Hidden Fires. Sandra Brown sold me on historical westerns.

In this book, Scott and Katie find some unconventional places to make love. What “unconventional” place would appeal to you (if you were a heroine in the west in the 1880’s?)

New Release: Three Weeks to Wed by Ella Quinn @ellaquinnauthor

Today, I’m thrilled to have Ella Quinn here on the blog, sharing a new historical romance!

book coverThree Weeks to Wed

In the first book of her dazzling new series, bestselling author Ella Quinn introduces the soon-to-be Earl and Countess of Worthington—lovers who have more in common than they yet know. The future promises to be far from boring…

Lady Grace Carpenter is ready to seize the day—or rather, the night—with the most compelling man she’s ever known. Marriage would mean losing guardianship of her beloved siblings, and surely no sane gentleman will take on seven children not his own. But if she can have

author photoWhat was your inspiration for this story?

This was my first Nanowrimo book. I originally wrote it to be part of my Marriage Game series, but I didn’t get it finished in time for the series chronology. So it became the first book of The Worthingtons. My inspiration was Matt Worthington. He had been in the first two books, and it was clear he was looking for a lady to marry. Fortunately, he found her.

How much research do you do?

Tons. Especially for this book. The premise hinges on laws specific to the Regency regarding child custody. Many people are surprised to know that married women could not have guardianship of a minor child. This applied to their own children as well. The concept was just not there. That, of course, was in addition to the clothing, horses, houses, carriages…

What are your favorite historical romance tropes?

I love the compromised into marriage trope, and I probably use it too often. Although, I’m in the process of reading some of Amanda Quick’s older Regencies, and she uses it quite a bit as well. It’s just so much fun and there are so many ways one can fall afoul of Polite Society’s rules.
