When I first wanted to write romance it had to be historical romances because that is what I loved to read. Rather than modern-day billionaires or Arab Sheikhs, I fell in love with the rakish Lord with the heart of gold. I must admit I like a smart heroine, but I also love the damsel in distress scenario. There’s nothing more romantic than a man laying down his life for you. For instance, I still love the scene in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, where Maid Marianne says, “You came for me.” and Robin replies, “I’d die for you!.” SIGH.
So, I’m so excited to see the new website set up dedicated to everything historical. The Historical Romance Network showcases over 1500 historical authors. If you’re looking for a new read head over there. There is a FaceBook event , Fall Back In Time, scheduled for 1 November – come win prizes and meet all the authors.
Since we’re celebrating historical romance, I thought I’d share that my latest release, INVITATION TO PASSION, is on sale of only 99c until early November 2014. Look what RT Book Reviews had to say about my story:
Madeline Knight is marrying her best friend and the man of her dreams, Lord Richard Craven. Unfortunately, he is in love with another woman, Sarah, who was forced into an arranged marriage to an evil man. Richard believes he could be the father of her unborn child and has no choice but to deal with the heartache and be the best husband he can for Maddy’s sake. Maddy feels she has trapped him to save her reputation, but the more time they spend together, the more he falls in love. When a family enemy threatens Maddy’s life, Richard must open his heart and fight for what’s most important. (BRONWENEVANS.COM, dl $2.99)
