About the author:
I adore 18th century English history and imagine I'm transported back to that period when I'm writing. I make every attempt to represent the period authentically when I write of it and don't pull punches. As a result, you may find some of my content unusual, but I believe strongly in representing likely characters of the period realistically.
HOW DO I CREATE MY CHARACTERS?
Character inspirations come to me after reading of a particular event, during the period, that interests me. I often awaken from a sound sleep with a poem or segment of a story telling itself to me quite clearly. I jump up (scare my hubby half to death) and run to my desk to write it all out. At other times, mostly when I'm gardening or just allowing my mind to wander, a character will reveal itself to me with such clarity that I feel as if they are real. When I write of them it's more a sharing of their thoughts then a telling, if you understand my meaning.
I'll close with this tidbit...a segment from my dream the other night.
Don't be afraid to dream: fear is a rabid beast with gaping mouth, blood-drenched teeth and a voracious appetite for dreams.
Dream on, dear reader!
Seduction of a Bluestocking
Sisters of the Heart, Book Two
Jilted and heart-broken, Miss Rachel Steele leaves home to begin a new life as governess, mind-made-up never again to succumb to a man’s charm. Then William Seaton, old friend of her employer, disturbs her peace: meddling in matters outside his concern. ‘Good riddance to bad rubbish,’ she says when he finally leaves. Soon thereafter, disaster strikes and Rachel accompanies her charge to the estate of her guardian, the Duke of Warwick: who from his letters sounds like a man well in his dotage. Rachel marches in to his study to persuade the doddering old coot to keep her on as governess. Words fail her when she finds that he is not at all old…definitely not doddering, but none other than the irritating, William Seaton!
William Seaton’s life is precisely as he would have it: mistresses all prettily lined up in a row, a cozy chair at Whites molded comfortably to fit his frame, fine port and cheroots a nod away…just perfect! He is anything but charmed to renew Miss Steele’s acquaintance, she is a nuisance he does not want or need, in fact, he’d prefer to hear nothing except farewell from her tightly-pressed lips. Knowing the annoying bluestocking will likely disrupt his well-ordered life, he agrees to retain her for the sake of his ward.
Hence begins a sizzling romantic campaign of Napoleonic proportions which draws the unwelcome attention of a villain from William’s past. Will Rachel and William realize their love for one another before he seeks revenge?
