Exciting news!!! THE MADDENING LORD MONTWOOD hit the USA TODAY Bestsellers List!!!!
I’m completely over the moon about it! I found out when I was in NYC at the RWA conference. I was in one of the glass elevators when I read a Tweet of congratulations. At the time, I was surrounded by about 8 strangers, and none of them conference goers, but even so, all I wanted to do was jump up and down and cheer. I’m sure they would have understood, right? 😉
Anyway, I couldn’t be happier about the wonderful news. More than that, I received dozens of congratulations and warm wishes from my fellow writers, proving that romance authors are the best people on the entire planet. <3
Onto more news…
Describe yourself in 3 sentences?
Nearly normal writer of romance. Excels at drinking copious amounts of tea. Enjoys using dark sense of humor to torture family.
Love it Vivienne~ lol If we opened your refrigerator, what would we find?
Tea and milk. Everyone else has to fend for themselves.
I like how you think 🙂 What’s your favorite food to cook?
I love to bake scones and come up with my own recipes.
I’m a huge advocate for experimenting in the kitchen, too. I love making up recipes. What’s under your bed?
Fluffy carpet—the boogeyman likes a soft, clutter-free place to sleep.
I love choosing my character names. How did you go about choosing your hero and heroine’s names?
For THE MADDENING LORD MONTWOOD, I’d given Lucan his name in the first book he appeared, Winning Miss Wakefield (Wallflower Weddings Series, book 2). I wanted a character that was dark and charming, and I thought “Lucan” fit that description perfectly. The heroine I had in mind was slightly prickly on the surface, but passionate and driven on the inside. “Frances Thorne” seemed to fit.
Great name choices! What’s the first sentence in your book?
Lucan Montwood wanted to get drunk.
Now the last sentence.
“Would you care to wager on that?”
Describe your hero through your heroine’s eyes…
