Q&A with Anthea Lawson

What’s your favorite historical romance? It’s hard to choose just one! But I’d have to say As You Desire by Connie Brockway, partially for the way she poke gentle fun at romance tropes, and for the exotic setting, wounded hero, and strong-minded heroine.

Oh, I'm a big fan of that book! What is the first romance novel you ever read? Probably something by Victoria Holt, smuggled off my best friend’s mom’s shelves when I was in middle school. And lots of… Barbara Cartland.

Would you want to live in the time you write about? What would you love? Hate? The Victorian era was full of energy and transition, but I wouldn’t want to live as a woman in that time.

Me too. It's a fascinating era but not so kind to privileges for women. So if given the choice between a duke, a rogue, or an alpha hero, which would you choose? Hm, I’d prefer all three wrapped into one.  ;)  That said, I’ve always had a thing for rogues…

What tempts you? (Chocolate, caviar, long walks on the beach…)  Chocolate. And also, chocolate.

Rapid fire round:
Designer purses or Target special? Target but it has to be a little funky
Heels or flip flops? Designer sandals
Rich or famous? Rich
American hottie or sexy Brit? Brit. Love that accent. [Yes, I'm with you on that!]
Where’s your happy place? Playing in the sea of words. And sleeping in with my handsome, roguish husband.  ;)

Hidden by the shadows, heedless of the applause surging behind them, he pulled her into his arms.

She went willingly, their joined music still echoing through her. His lips touching hers was simply the next movement—an inevitable extension of the intimacy they had experienced onstage. Clara set her hands on his shoulders and lifted herself onto her toes, pressing more deeply into the kiss. She could not help it, any more than she could help the music scribed in her soul. The feel of his arms around her was fierce and exhilarating, and she opened her mouth to his, taking his breath and giving hers in return.
About Darcy Burke:
A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her devoted husband, their two great kids, and two Bengal cats. In her “spare” time Darcy is a serial volunteer enrolled in a 12-step program where one learns to say “no,” but she keeps having to start over. She’s also a fair-weather runner, and her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.

About Bronwen Evans:
USA Today Bestselling Author Bronwen Evans grew up loving books. She writes both historical and contemporary sexy romances for the modern woman who likes intelligent, spirited heroines, and compassionate alpha heroes.
Her debut Regency romance, Invitation to Ruin won the RomCon Readers’ Crown Best Historical 2012, and was an RT Reviewers’ Choice Nominee Best First Historical 2011. Her first self-published novella, To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield, was a FINALIST in the Kindle Book Review Indie Romance Book of the Year 201,2 and a finalist in the RomCon Readers’ Crown Best Historical 2013.

Delilah Marvelle is the winner of the Reviewer's Choice for Best Sensual Historical Romance of the Year and had Booklist name her historical romance 'Forever and a Day' one of the TOP 10 Romances of the year. When she isn't writing, she's digging through inappropriate research books that include anything in history having to do with courtesans, brothels, sexual contraptions that were never properly used and other fascinating forms of dirty history that didn't make it into college textbooks. She includes all of her research in her books to ensure countless hours of entertainment and continues to take pride in knowing more about dirty history than most people feel comfortable with.

About Erica Ridley:
Erica Ridley learned to read when she was three, which was about the same time she decided to be a writer when she grew up.
She is the author of three Gothic romances, Too Wicked to Kiss, Too Sinful to Deny and Dark Surrender, the vampire romance "Never Been Bitten" in the paranormal romance anthology Born To Bite, contemporary paranormal romances Charmed and Midwinter Magic, and the holiday fantasy romance Let It Snow.
When not reading or writing romances, Erica can be found riding camels in Africa, zip-lining through rainforests in Costa Rica, or getting hopelessly lost in the middle of Budapest.

About Emma Locke:
Emma Locke is a writer and engineer living in the Pacific Northwest, where she loves hiking with her dog, hot yoga and riding out the annual 330 days of rain. Hiking and yoga give her time to plot, the lack of sun makes for perfect writing weather, and as for her day job, the dichotomy seems to work: her analytic side ensures her passionate, satisfying love stories don't mulch under her bed, and her author side forces her to keep writing more.

Now, under the supervision of her three dogs and three cats, she writes amid a library of research books, with her only true break away is to spend time with her other life long dream – her Arabian horse – with him, her muse can play.
