Interview with Lauren Linwood

Why did you write
this book?
I have always enjoyed reading books in a series, but I had
never written a series of my own. I decided after nine standalone romances that
creating a series would be my next creative challenge. It’s a lot to keep up
with, but I am finding the process truly satisfying.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I enjoy thrillers that have some type of historical
connection. Steve Berry and Brad Meltzer do a fabulous job of weaving history
into action-packed stories that keep a reader guessing till the very end.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m a true Pride and Prejudice fan, so Elizabeth Bennet is
my favorite heroine, as she is for many readers and writers of romance. Lizzy
is intelligent, compassionate, loyal, witty, charming, and feisty–everything I
love in a heroine.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
My Knights of Valor series is claiming all my attention
these days! Every book will have a connection to Word of Honor’s hero, Geoffrey
de Montfort. Geoffrey’s best friend (and cousin) is the focus of Marked by
Honor, releasing in July, and his niece is featured in Code of Honor, coming in
October. Three more books from this medieval historical romance series will be
released in 2017 that will be the stories of Geoffrey’s other niece and two of
his children.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Merryn Mantel and Geoffrey de Montfort have loved each other
since childhood. Once betrothed, Geoffrey leaves for the wars in France for
five long years. Upon his return, the two marry and spend one blissful night
consummating their love and making plans for their future.
But her new husband vanishes the next day without a trace.
Merryn grieves for almost seven years–and then Geoffrey returns to her–changed
from the boy and man she knew and worshipped. This stranger refuses to reveal
where he has been and why he stayed away for so long.
Will her husband’s silence create a rift too large to heal,
or can Merryn and Geoffrey recapture the love they once shared?
