Welcome, H.C.! It’s great to have you back. You’ve been busy lately! Can you tell us about your most recent release, A TRYST OF FATE?
I had the idea to have a man sent back in time, who would be the complete opposite of what was considered ‘normal’ in Georgian England. Colt Daniels is six-five and built like a linebacker and I had so much fun writing about his exploits in 1775. Of course, as usual my plots end up as tender love stories. T
I SO love the idea of him being “out of place” in the era. That certainly has to make for some interesting reading. ;c) Early on, Colt is captivated by a painting. What about the painting of Lord Alexander Swift captured Colt’s attention? Does it begin as a surface attraction, or is the draw bone deep?
Colt is refurbishing an old Georgian house, he finds a portrait of the owner and there is an instant connection.
Sounds like one he couldn’t deny, and considering the events to follow I’d have to say the connection was a good one, lol. How did you research the historical aspects of this book?
I spent three months researching the Georgian period for A Tryst of Fate and Lord & Master. I read a lot of court documents for the feel of the time and of course, read as much information as I could find on the other social and economic history of the time.
Court documents—that’s one I haven’t heard before. How clever! What might readers be surprised to learn about the plot or characters of A TRYST OF FATE?
I usually give my stories a little twist and a lot of conflict and this one is the same.
Even the title has the “twist” in it, LOL. Let’s have some fun with A TRYST OF FATE. What’s the first sentence?
Colt Daniels lifted his bidder’s card. “Thirty thousand.”
Wow, he most certainly does mean business! LOL. What’s your favorite line in the book?
The last one LOL.
Oh, nice tease! ;c) How about an excerpt … three sentences long! Yep, that’s it. Three!
Colt gazed down at the glossy illustration. A trickle of ice slid down his spine. The portrait of the Honorable David Fitzhugh depicted a tall, muscular man with dark flowing hair—and the royal blue eyes that stared back at him were his own.
Wow. Talk about a connection! What are you currently working on?
Lord & Master has just been published by Noble Romance, a M/M historical, BDSM romance novel.
I’m working on three stories, Hurt Me Good a M/M BDSM novel, Vanilla Boy a BDSM novella and #4 in the Pride Brothers Series. Nox
All destined to be best-sellers, I’m sure! ;c) Let’s take a closer look at A TRYST OF FATE.
