Blog Tour: The Tainted Love of a Captain | Jane Lark

Today folks, is my turn on the official blog tour for 'The Tainted Love of a Captain' by Jane Lark. I am lucky enough to have a fabulous guest post from the author herself about how she researched certain aspects of her story. 
The Tainted Love of a Captain: Researching the Marlow Intrigues series to give my stories the authenticity that readers love

A lot of people wouldn’t touch writing a historical because they are put off by the thought of research, but I love the research. I want to make sure my historical stories are as realistic as I can make them. Someone once said in a review that they were so involved in the book that when the character lifted the skirt of her dress to climb on a horse, so did she. I thought that was an amazing thing for someone to be so deep in the story they felt as though they were living it. But when I’m researching the books that is what I try to do – imagine living in the time…

I spend my weekends walking about historical homes and gardens letting my imagination roam with me, and I always stop and talk to the room guides because they usually have some great tales and details to tell. I buy the guide books to pick up any evidence of the family history and discover odd little stories about the way of life that might generate ideas and greater understanding. But I also buy any old memoirs or letters of the family that have been published. There are also lots of letters and diaries that can be tracked down to read on the internet. These are like a treasure trove.

What is great about reading letters and memoirs is that I hear life described by those who lived it then, not by historians who put their own judgement on the past.

Reading letters and memoirs also opens up the thoughts and emotions of the people who lived in the time, as well as expressing how they lived, and I recall and capture that as I write my stories.

The first book in the Marlow Intrigues Series was inspired by the memoirs of a courtesan, and a couple of scenes in The Tainted Love of a Captain go back to the ways of life I discovered in Harriette Wilson’s story. I’ve even gathered some of my insight of life for Harry in the barracks in Brighton from Harriette. She was employed as the mistress of the teenage heir to a dukedom (against the will of his parents) and was living with him in Brighton and talks about being allowed to attend the barracks while he paraded in the morning, and of joining all the men in the mess for dinner.

Harry is not the heir to a duke and is at the barracks a couple of decades later than Harriette. Also between the Regency era and the Victorian era mistresses had moved from women who were proudly displayed to other men, to people who were hidden away from society. So I made some changes to the way Harry behaves, but even so, Harriette’s descriptions of life in the barracks at Brighton and staying in inn’s with her protector inspired my imagination in many respects.

There are lots of details about Harriett’s real life adventures on my blog


THE TAINTED LOVE OF A CAPTAIN

The sounds and scents of the Crimean War are strangling Harry Marlow, shutting him off and silently smothering his soul. But he is a soldier and that is his life, and he can see nothing else besides that. So why should he care when a woman watches him? His life is not one to share with a woman, other than for a few moments in his bed.

When a woman is already drowning so deeply in sin she is without any fear of judgement - what can it matter if she chooses to begin a new affair? It is like escape to choose her own man and Captain Marlow is the perfect candidate for a dalliance. All she has to do is obtain an introduction...






About the Author

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult romance and author of a No.1 bestselling Historical Novel,'The Illicit Love of a Courtesan', as well as a Kindle overall top 25, bestselling author in the United States of America. 

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write. 

Now Jane is writing a Regency series as well as contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others' imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane's favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was 'Katherine' a story crafted from reality. 

Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses these to create more realistic plots.

'Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it's wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.'

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.

Blog Tour: Just For The Holidays | Sue Moorcroft

Well folks, I could not be more excited to be part of today's blog tour. Sue Moorcroft is someone who I have long admired and respected, and I am thrilled to have her on my blog today for a fabulous Q&A. So as I usually say, grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy yourself.
Hello Sue, thank you so much for agreeing to an interview ad part of your blog tour, I am pleased to welcome you to my website. How are you?
Hello Daniel. Thanks for being part of my blog tour for Just for the Holidays and for the welcome. I’m pleased to be here and doing well, thank you.
So to break the ice a little with my readers, what can you tell us about your latest release ‘Just for the Holidays’?
Just for the Holidays takes us to Alsace where Leah, who has opted not to have a husband or children, ends up looking after her sister’s estranged husband and children. Her sister, Michele, is in the middle of a life crisis, including being pregnant just when she’s decided to end her marriage. Leah begins to rely on the grounded helicopter pilot living next door with his teenage Goth son - until the arrival of a very uninvited guest. I’ve shared more of my own traits with Leah than I usually do: she loves cars and thinks the only way to watch Formula 1 is in total silence. (So it’s a good job that the holiday falls in August when F1 is on its summer break or I’m not sure she could stand the stress.)
What can you tell me about your typical writing day if you have one, and what your process is?
I get up at 06.30 so I’m at my desk before 7.30am and I have my morning cuppa and my porridge while dealing with email, social media and newsletters. Then I get on with that day’s task, which could be planning, writing, researching, promoting, or attending to ‘business’ such as reading contracts or dealing with accounts. Most days, I take a couple of hours off for Zumba, FitStep, yoga or piano class. I finish around 6.00pm. Sometimes I have an event but often all I do after that is social media or emails from the comfort of my armchair. I generally work 50 or 60 hours a week.
When I’m writing a novel (which is most of the time, but I also write short stories and serials), I like to begin with character biographies and working on conflicts and goals. I often have a huge pile of hand-written stuff before I actually begin to type onto my computer. However, the book I’ve just begun (working title The Summer of Finding Out, due out for summer 2018) is breaking out of that mould and I keep writing scenes even while I’m planning. I’ve written two scenes and the prologue. They’re not even sequential but I’ve gone with my gut feeling. Who said a book has to be written in the order in which it’s read?

Do you have a special writing space/room, you like to retreat to?
My study’s my favourite place. It’s at the back of the house and I face the wall so I don’t just stare at the garden all day. The study’s quite overcrowded and messy and it’s the only place where I don’t seem to see dust. I have a big handmade desk that’s getting a bit battered and bears an ink blot in the shape of a palm tree. A garden office is in the planning stage but probably won’t materialise for a couple of years.
For me, when I’m writing I need plenty of snacks. Do you have any necessary supplies when you’re writing? Wine? Chocolate? Music?
I try not to snack between meals but sometimes I need a few crackers or a cuppa soup in the afternoon. I need a good supply of hot liquid, though - tea being the top of the preference list. If I end the day feeling really thirsty I know I’ve been working well because I haven’t been downstairs to put the kettle on.
You’ve been with Choc Lit and now you are with Avon/Harper Collins. Can you tell me about your journey to publication? How did that all happen?
It’s over 21 years since I sold my first story to a magazine, The People’s Friend, so you can see it wasn’t exactly overnight success. I wrote two novels that were destined for the bin then I read that if I had 20 short stories on my CV publishers of novels might look on me more kindly. As I’d worked out for myself that writing better books would also be helpful, I took a course. I began to sell short stories regularly and when I’d sold 87 and a serial my then-agent sold my first novel, Uphill All the Way, to Transita. Although I call that ‘my first novel’ it was actually the eighth I wrote and some of the earlier ones have since been published. To be honest, the journey was simple - I just wrote and wrote and wrote, sent stuff out, educated myself on publishing as well as writing, learned to accept rejection, attended a lot of conferences and never stopped writing, learning or trying. Luck also played a part. I was lucky that Avon was looking for a Christmas novel just when my agent sent mine. This luck was replicated in Germany where the same book was bought by Fischer Verlag and did very nicely thank you, but I do find that the harder I work the luckier I get.
You have quite the backlist of books now as well as contributions to many anthologies and magazines. What do your family and loved ones think of your success?
My family is great. If you look at how many of my books are dedicated to its various members you can see how highly I regard them. Nineteen of us are going on holiday together in October! They are supportive in the extreme, even if it’s hidden in friendly jokes and mickey-taking. I have, sadly, now lost my number 1 fan - my mum.
We all have our favourites but what other writers do you love or have influenced you in some way?
I love stories of love that conquers all. It’s a fantastic feeling to fall in love and as I can’t do that two or three times a week in reality I do it via my reading matter. Nevil Shute was a great influence in the way he makes an epic love affair part of stories that take place on a big stage. Suzanne Brockmann, an American writer of romantic suspense does this even better. I have a long list of favourite authors but those two do hop straight into my mind every time.
I also like reading non-fiction about Formula 1 and its personalities.
Are there any particular highlights in your writing career so far?
Getting to #1 on Amazon for five days with The Christmas Promise. It was a good way to start with Avon! They’re a great team.
I have a copy of your amazing non-fiction book ‘Love Writing: How to Make Money Writing Romantic or Erotic Fiction’ and I love it so much. What inspired you to write a book like this?
Thank you very much! I was teaching creative writing quite a bit in those days and, as spin offs, writing ‘how to’ in the writing magazines. I had dinner with Hazel Cushion of Accent Press and put it to her that she needed a ‘how to’ book about writing romantic fiction and I was just the person to write it. Luckily, she agreed. I’d just had a bereavement and didn’t feel like writing a novel.
If you ever get a spare moment, what do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Watch Formula 1, read, hang out with friends (preferably with food and drink involved), walk, dance and play the piano.
So what’s next for Sue Moorcroft, what are you working on right now if you can tell us?
I’ve begun The Summer of Finding Out, as mentioned; the promo for Just for the Holidays is in full flight; and I’m expecting edits for this year’s Christmas book, Give Me Till Christmas, in the next couple of weeks. At the end of June I’m running a one-week residential course in Italy for Arte Umbria and I’ll be at Swanwick in August. Readers can discover more about my appearances by going to www.suemoorcroft.com and clicking on ‘events’.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions Sue, I am very grateful and I wish you every success with your latest release.
Thank you for making me welcome, Daniel, and for your good wishes.

Blog Tour: Trust Me | Gemma Metcalfe

Today folks, I am happy to be part of the blog tour for 'Trust Me' by Gemma Metcalfe, published by HQ digital. Not only that, but I also have a small guest post from the author herself. 


Guest Post
Trust Me- I was a sale´s woman

My inspiration for writing ´Trust Me.´

People often ask me how I think up my stories and where I get my ideas from. Truth is, I have always been a little bit of a daydreamer, often zoning out to actual conversations with real people to my imaginary world with made up characters. 

  That being said, my initial idea for ´Trust me,´ is based largely on my real-life experiences as a call-centre operative here in Tenerife where I have lived for seven years. One thing I learnt as a saleswoman, was that some people do want to talk, even if that somebody is a total stranger. I have spoken to many characters; chatterboxes who would talk to their own reflection if nobody else was in the room, disgruntled housewives who want to ´dish the dirt,´ on their husbands and proud parents who want to tell you all about their child´s achievements. The saddest part of my job, and also the most rewarding, was talking to elderly women and men, who were lonely and looked forward to their daily sales call.

  I had been toying with the idea of writing a story based in a call-centre for a while. I worked with such funny, unique characters and I knew a story based on a phone call, told from alternate perspectives, would work well for a thriller.

  One night I was in the bath and the plot suddenly came to me. ´What if the person on the other end of the line was about to commit suicide? What if both main characters were drenched in secrets? What if everything wasn’t quite as it seemed?

  I loved writing ´Trust Me´, particularly the call-centre chapters, as I could relate to Lana really easily (although I was a slightly better at my sales job than she was.) Her voice, her way with words and her humour are all me. As for Liam, I adored writing him too, although he was slightly harder to write than Lana. Liam is an emotional character, and I had to dig deep and draw on my own emotions when describing his grief and anxiety. Like Liam and Alice, my husband and I have suffered miscarriages, and as hard as it was to revisit, it helped me to write Liam and Alice´s story with conviction. Liam´s son Elliott, is based on a beautiful little boy called Dilraj who I looked after when I worked as a Nursery Nurse. The character of Sue is also a wonderful assortment of my nanna, auntie and mum.

So yes, I guess in response to the answer ´where did you get the idea for ´Trust Me,´ from? ´ I would have to answer, ´straight out of my life.´ (With a tiny sprinkling of make-believe of course.)


Blurb: One phone call. Two lives. Their darkest secrets.
Lana needs to sell a holiday, fast. Stuck in Tenerife, in a dead end job, she never expected a response quite like Liam’s.

Thousands of miles away a phone rings. Liam never intended to pick up, he’s too busy choosing the quickest way to die. But at least someone should know the truth before he goes, even if that someone is a stranger.

As time runs out both are drawn to the other, expressing thoughts they never thought they would share.



When you’re about to die will your secrets even matter?

About Gemma Metcalfe: Gemma Metcalfe is a Manchester born author who now lives in sunny Tenerife with her husband Danny and two crazy rescue dogs Dora and Diego. By day, Gemma can be found working as a Primary school teacher, but as the sun sets, she ditches the glitter and glue and becomes a writer of psychological thrillers. An established drama queen, she admits to having a rather warped imagination, and loves writing original plots with shocking twists. The plot for her debut novel ´Trust Me,´ is loosely based on her experiences as a call centre operative, where  she was never quite sure who would answer the phone…

Book Review: The State of Grace | Rachael Lucas

It’s about time we have more books about individuals who feel they are a little different from what society considers ‘the norm’. In particular I feel that the YA book market is just now beginning to see a wonderful array of books that allow us to be comfortable with what makes us different, and that our individual quirks and eccentricities are what make us who we are. So you can imagine my happiness when one of my favourite romantic fiction authors Rachael Lucas, had written her first YA book.

The State of Grace is about a teenage girl (Grace) how just happens to be autistic, and what that means for her finding her way through the world. Now as teens we all remember what it was like to feel different and misunderstood and how the pressure of being ‘cool’ was paramount to teenage survival. What Grace has to contend with is not only the stereotypical teenage stuff but also the idea that being autistic changes how you view yourself and unfortunately how the rest of the world treats you.

Grace is a wonderfully written character who comes to life from the beginning and you instantly feel a connection to her. Regardless whether you may or may not be autistic, what makes Grace so wonderful is that when it all comes down to it she is intrinsically human. There is no rule book for life, yet Grace feels like she is the only one who never got handed a set of instructions on how to navigate life. I love Grace’s awkwardness, and I love that she is a geek, it makes me feel even as a 32 year old male, that it is perfectly OK to be awkward and geeky and that made me feel so much better about myself.

This book is a must read for EVERYONE. It really is that simple. This book is a perfectly written story but not only that, it also helps to understand that at the end of the day, despite our differences we are all the same in that we just want to get through each day as a regular human being. Every character in this book has a wonderful purpose, and really put into perspective the way Grace has to live her life as a teenage girl and a human being who just happens to be autistic.

I loved this book, it was heart-warming, informative and an all-round wonderful read.


I gave this book a fab 10/10

Blurb:
Sometimes I feel like everyone else was handed a copy of the rules for life and mine got lost.
Grace has Asperger's and her own way of looking at the world. She's got a horse and a best friend who understand her, and that's pretty much all she needs. But when Grace kisses Gabe and things start to change at home, the world doesn't make much sense to her any more. Suddenly everything threatens to fall apart, and it's up to Grace to fix it on her own.
Whip-smart, hilarious and unapologetically honest, The State of Grace by Rachael Lucas is a heart-warming story of one girl trying to work out where she fits in, and whether she even wants to.

About the Author: Rachael Lucas lives by the seaside with her partner (who is also a writer) in a rambling Victorian house full of books, children and spiders. She wrote her first novel on a typewriter when she was only eleven, and bundled it up and sent it off to a publisher called Pan Books, who published her favourite authors. It was very kindly rejected, but they told her to keep writing, so she did. 
Some years later (quite a few years, actually) her debut novel SEALED WITH A KISS became a bestseller, reaching the Amazon top 10. Bestselling romantic comedies COMING UP ROSES and WILDFLOWER BAY followed this. 

Rachael's young adult novel THE STATE OF GRACE will be published by Macmillan Children's Books in April 2017 with other countries to follow. You can find out more about Rachael at her website - rachaellucas.com.

✮✮✮ JOY RIDE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy...

Let's be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood...for the best joy ride of your life. I'm at your service. Ready to go all night long.

But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She's fiery, she's talented, she's gorgeous, and I'd really like to know what makes her engine hum.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we're forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can't quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can't seem to put on the brakes. If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

Excerpt:

Henley Rose and a hot car go together like peaches and cream, like fine Scotch and a long, dirty night. Which means working with her was like walking into the Garden of Eden every single day. It was a test of willpower because the woman could craft a car as if it were an erotic dance.

Not a striptease.

Not an in-your-face pelvis thrust.

But a beautiful fucking ballet of a woman seducing machine. Those hands, the way she wielded tools, the intensity in her focus—it was sensual, and it was sinful, and it was this man’s fantasy made flesh.

Imagine what it was like working with her for one, hard-on year.

I mean, hard year.

I survived the challenge because she had talent to spare. And I never treated her differently because she was a woman, or because I thought about her naked an obscene amount of the time. I treated her like anyone else—specifically, all the people I work with who I never ever imagine in anything less than full-on Siberian winter garb, complete with the thermals and Michelin Man coat.

“Black heart still intact.” I tap my sternum. “Same model as before.”

“I’d have thought you’d get an upgrade by now. Faulty parts and all.”

“No recall needed on the ticker. It works just fine in this cruel bastard.” I say, reminding her of the words she’d uttered the day she stormed out.

She arches a brow. “Shame. You should have let me replace it. I’m good at making all sorts of clunkers run better.”

Jesus Christ. She still takes no prisoners. “I’ve no doubt you have all the tools to fix anything, and if you couldn’t find the right one, you’d use a blowtorch.”

She adopts an expression of indignation. “There’s nothing wrong with using a blowtorch,” she says, taking extra time on the first syllable.

How the hell did I ever last with this woman? Before I can even fashion a comeback, she taps her toe against the tire on Wagner’s car. “I see you still like to make your cars with big, manly wheels.”

I roll my eyes then make a give it to me now motion with my hands. “All right, Henley. Deliver the punchline.”

She bats her lashes. “What punchline?”

Big? Manly? You’re going to say it’s some sort of compensation thing going on. That’s what you always said about the guys who wanted the biggest cars with the biggest wheels.”

She smirks. “Was I wrong in my assessment?”

I laugh. “I don’t know. I didn’t check to see how that added up for them.”

“Nor did I. My focus was always on the work.”

“As well it should have been.”
“That’s what you taught me.”

“I’m glad you learned that lesson.”

“I learned so many lessons from you.”

“If I was going to place a bet on an author to consistently deliver a FANTASTIC romance time and time again, I would put all my money on Lauren Blakely. She always writes amazing comedic romances—they are sexy, entertaining and always original. Consider me a fangirl.”

~Mary, Harlequin Junkie

 

"At some points during my read, I would have to remind myself to breathe. I was so utterly consumed with what I was reading, with the compelling chemistry between Henley and Max . . . The S. E. X. Was. Soooooo HOTT. I'd argue it was Blakely's best writing by far."

Blog Tour: Razr | Larissa Ione

RAZR - Tour banner    

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione, comes RAZR, a passionate and spellbinding novella from the Demonica Underworld Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy today!

    RAZR - cover

 Excerpt:

He moved toward Jedda, his pulse inexplicably growing faster as he neared her. He’d been in the presence of blindingly gorgeous females with unmatched power in his centuries of life, and none of them had affected him like this. No, this was different, a mix of attraction and anticipation he would almost compare to battle lust.
The thought made him slow his approach, his mind tripping over the implications of that. Was he hoping she was one of the demons responsible for the theft of his property and the deaths of his friends, in which case he’d kill her, or was he hoping she wasn’t involved? And which was worse? Oh, he had no problems with killing demons—it was what he’d been bred for. But it seemed like such a shame to slaughter someone so unique. Or so attractive.
Idiot. You never drooled over demons when you were a full-fledged angel.
No, he hadn’t. There had been a clear separation of class and species back then. But ever since he’d had his wings bound and his powers muted and had been tossed in Sheoul-gra to serve Azagoth, he’d relaxed his standards. Not intentionally, but he had to admit that living life on the other side of the tracks had given him new perspective.
He just wasn’t sure if that was a good thing or a bad one.
Jedda looked up as he stopped in front of her. Up close, she was even more beautiful, with full, pouty lips made to stir up some wicked male fantasies. Her fine, perfect features made her seem delicate, fragile, even, but something told him she was stronger than she looked. Which made him wonder how that strength would play in bed.
Down, boy. Get what you want and get back to Heaven and females suited to your status. And species. “Hello, Ms. Brighton. I’m Razr.”
Cocking her head slightly, she gave him a long, assessing once-over before saying with just a hint of an English accent, “Razr? That’s not a common human name, is it?”
Either she couldn’t sense his species or she was testing him. Either way, he didn’t see any reason to lie. “It’s my fallen angel name. A take on my given name. Razriel.”
“Ah.” She gave him another long, measuring look, taking in the expensive suit Azagoth had given him for the event, and he wondered what she was thinking. “Until tonight, I’d never met a fallen angel, and now I’ve met two, including you.”
“Tonight? Is the other one here?”
She nodded. “Shrike, the event organizer. He owns this place.”
Well, that was mildly alarming. Fallen angels reveled in power and status, which meant that this shindig had probably been arranged for a purpose. An evil purpose.
 

About RAZR:

New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione returns to the Demonica Underworld…

A fallen angel with a secret.

An otherworldly elf with an insatiable hunger she doesn’t understand.

An enchanted gem.

Meet mortal enemies Razr and Jedda…and the priceless diamond that threatens to destroy them both even as it bonds them together with sizzling passion.

Welcome back to the Demonica Underworld, where enemies find love…if they’re strong enough to survive.

She currently lives in Wisconsin with her U.S. Coast Guard husband, her teenage son, a rescue cat named Vegas, and her very own hellhound, a King Shepherd named Hexe.
