I choose my ARCs with the whimsical nature of a two-year old sometimes. It’s the weirdest thing, but so far, it’s working. When I met Regina Scott I just knew I needed to review her books – I mean with a name so similar to mine, she just had to be awesome, right? Well, if historicals are your thing than you need to look her up!
After I read her book, we got together for a chat…
Regina, I absolutely adored your characters in The Rogue’s Reform! I was enthralled with the dissention between Adele and her mother. What about Adele did you admire most?
Thank you for the kind words! I admire Adele’s ability to move forward in the face of difficult circumstances. She was raised to expect a life of wealth and privilege, but when things turned out differently, she didn’t mope, she didn’t wring her hands. She picked herself (and her mother) up and went on, head high, making the best of things. I can only hope I’ll be that pragmatic when faced with adversity!
What was the most difficult part of writing this particular book for you?
Waiting. The three Everard men and their new cousin Samantha have been in my head for over 5 years. It never seemed the right time, the right venue for their stories to be told. I’m so thankful my editor at Love Inspired Historical encouraged me to give them a chance!
Can we expect to see more of the Everards? I mean, really, their personalities are so dynamic and fun I want to meet them!
Indeed you can! Captain Richard Everard, the second of the gentlemen, gets his own book in July 2012 (The Captain’s Courtship), and I am currently wrestling with the swashbuckling poet Vaughn Everard to finish the manuscript for his book (The Rake’s Redemption), which is scheduled to hit stores November 2012.
Wow, I can’t wait for more! Thanks, Regina!
Well, Gosh, it sort of looks like I’m talking to myself, doesn’t it?
