Hallo, Hallo dear hearts!
As you might have inferred by how regularly I’ve featured #HistRom novelists and their stories on Jorie Loves A Story – this is a niche of Historical Romance I personally LOVE to read and discovering new voices of the craft is a wicked sweet delight of joy for me as a reader. Whilst I also like to feature these authors through my monthly (semi-weekly) chat @SatBookChat!
I have spent hours of wicked sweet readerly joy tucked inside Regencies over the years whilst Historical Romances are now at a record equal bit of consumption for me as a reader as Contemporary Romances! The latter was a harder sell to find the writers who are penning the stories I want to be reading in those realms of enquiry whereas with #HistRom – if I tuck into the Regency, Victorian or Edwardian eras of British LIt I am nearly going to have a #mustread on my hands! I simply love those eras of interest – love the instincts the writers have to tell those stories and I get lost inside the propriety of how society directed social interests & the art of courtship. There were a lot of hidden rules to courting and a lot of it weighed against your station in life as well.
Aside from my passion for Historical Romances – I heartily love interviewing authors as it gives me a chance to get to know their writerly style, peer into their process as fellow writers and give my readers & the visitors of my blog a front row seat into finding out if the story I’m highlighting is one which might be a wicked good fit in their own readerly lives. I love bringing readers and authors together – to help others find stories which will be wicked good #nextreads for them and to champion the joy of being a book blogger who loves chatting about the stories popping up on her bookish radar!
I am a champion of Self-Published & Indie Publishers/Press novelists – I’ve maintained this for the last seven years I’ve been blogging and am thankful I can continue to seek out and showcase the authors who might not get as much attention as others who are with Major Trade publishers. A lot of my favourite reads over the years have been from this group of authors – they take risks and they are writing stories I am wicked thrilled about having in my hands. Remember to give them a chance at giving you an unputdownable read as much as they have continued to give me every year.
And, now I hope you’ll enjoy the light-hearted conversation about The Bachelor series and an inside look into “The Bachelor Duke” as Ms Rene and I discuss the story, her characters and her love of #amwriting Historical Romances. Be sure to brew yourself a cuppa and tuck into this conversation!
The Bachelor Duke
Subtitle: The Bachelor series
by Cecilia Rene
The Bachelor Duke meets a beautiful, curvaceous lady.
Remington Warren, The Duke of Karrington, lives his life by the name society has thrust upon him. Having witnessed cruelty against the fairer sex with his own eyes, he vows never to marry to prevent himself from becoming like the monster who raised him. After ten years of being The Bachelor Duke, his life is irrevocably changed when he sees Lady Olivia St. John across the ballroom floor.
Having lived a sheltered, pampered life, surrounded by her loving family, Lady Olivia St. John longs to know passion and love. She is beautiful, bold, and has a rather large dowry. According to society, she would be a diamond in the first water of this season if it wasn’t for her one flaw.
Will she find all she longs for and more in the arms of The Bachelor Duke, or will heartbreak be her demise?
