NEW RELEASE: Traitor in Her Arms by Shana Galen @shanagalen

Today, I’m thrilled to have Shana Galen here on the blog, sharing a brand new historical romance release with us!

book coverTraitor in Her Arms

Two morally compromised souls wage a battle of wits—and seduction—against the backdrop of the French Revolution in this thrilling romance from bestselling author Shana Galen.

Apple iBooks (iTunes/iPhone/iPad)

Barnes & Noble Nook
Kobo
Google Play (Android)

$4.99 USD – $5.99 CAN – £4.99 GBP

author photoWhat 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.

Spinster Miss Eleanor Lockhart is suddenly homeless and employment is her only option. Ruined after succumbing to a scoundrel’s excessive charm nearly a decade ago, she’s lucky to obtain a position as a paid companion and committed to behaving with the utmost propriety.

Titus St. John, Duke of Kendal, is known as the Forbidden Duke, a mysterious, intimidating figure who enters Society just once each year at his stepmother’s ball. A decade ago, he was a devil-may-care rake until his idle roguery brought about the ruin of Eleanor Lockhart—and his resulting self-imposed isolation. Now she’s back, and she needs his help. But by “saving” her, he may just ruin her life all over again.

SALE: A New Life by Merry Farmer @MerryFarmer20

Today, I’m thrilled to have Merry Farmer here on the blog, sharing a historical romance for less than a dollar!

book coverA New Life

Millie Horner considers herself the luckiest woman in the world. Saved from a life of prostitution in the Old West, she is determined to make a new life for herself across the ocean in Cornwall, England. But life below-stairs at Starcross Castle is filled with its own problems, specifically, the problem of making sure that none of her new friends discover the life she came from.

That challenge becomes even harder when she falls for handsome and ambitious footman, Owen Llewellyn….

author photoWhat was your inspiration for this story?

I’ve been writing historical western romance for a few years, but my heart has always longed to write romance set in the Late Victorian Era. Well, that time has finally come! But I wanted to lead into my new direction by taking characters from the beloved Wyoming town my readers already love and giving them new lives in England. I also wanted to explore the lives of the people who live downstairs in the great English houses. So while the lord of the manor is an important character in A New Life, it’s the maids and footmen, the housekeeper and the butler, and the world they inhabit that this story revolves around.

How much research do you do?

I’m a little bit of a history weirdo. Okay, a lot of a history weirdo. I majored in history not just once, but twice in college. And I read history books for fun. Like, last summer, I gorged on 7 thick books about the Victorian Era, the life of Queen Victoria herself, and coolest of all, the lives of the people who served in her household! That was a cool book! I’ve drawn a lot of inspiration from that reading.

Who is your latest auto-buy historical romance author?

I just discovered Tessa Dare! Dude! Why had I never read anything by her before? I love how her characters are light and engaging, but still packed with deep, real emotion. She makes me laugh and cry at the same time.
