Ella Quinn’s bachelors in The Marriage Game series are charming
and cunning when it comes to the ways of love—until the right woman captures their
unsuspecting hearts…
Custom-made gowns…nights at the theater…and a host of eligible
bachelors. Accustomed to living a quiet life in the Scottish Borderlands, Lady Serena
Weir has never had any of these luxuries. But when Serena’s brother demands she
finally have a Season in London,
she’s thrust into a glamorous world she’s only dreamed of…
Robert, Viscount Beaumont remembers all too well what it feels
like to be in love. That is why he must keep his distance from Serena. He’s only
felt his pulse stir the way it does now when he made the mistake of loving the wrong
woman once before. Yet the more he strives to resist his feelings, the nearer he
is to falling under Serena’s seductive spell…
“Supported by a wonderful cast of characters, Quinn’s thoughtfully
drawn lovers teach each other the value of love in this delicious Regency treat.”
~ New York Times Bestselling author Eileen Dreyer

Interview

Tell us about your story’s world. What is it like in this
period or place?
The story is a Regency.
It begins during the main Season in London, from
there we move to Paris, then Yorkshire, England.
1816 is known as the year without summer.
What inspired you to write this book?
This is the 3d book in
my series The Marriage Game, however it was the second one I wrote. Robert kept
badgering me until I had his story down. As anyone who has read the book can tell
you, he is a very difficult man.
Which character in your current book do you think readers
will like the most? Why?
Well I hope they like
Serena and Robert. They’ve both had difficult but different experiences they’ve
had to overcome. Robert is used to getting what he wants, but Serena won’t be bullied.
Getting to their HEA was, at times, a struggle. One of my favorite secondary characters
is the Dowager Lady Beaumont, Robert’s grandmother.
Why do you write?
Because I love it. It’s
the best job I’ve ever had.
Who has helped you the most in your career as an author?
That’s a hard question.
My mother-in-law has been my biggest cheerleader, but for actual help, it is other
authors. My critique groups played a big part. I had a great mentor in Delilah Marvelle,
and my agent’s assistant, Claire Cavanaugh, who taught me how to edit and polish
my books.
When you’re not writing, what would we find you doing?
Social media, supporting
other authors on Facebook and Twitter. I blog three times a week. Almost every morning
I walk the beach and on the weekends I paddleboard.
Are you a plotter, or do you prefer to make it up on the spur
of the moment?
It’s more spur of the
moment, but I will plot a scene in my head.
Any advice for new authors?
Learn about the business,
and know that this is a huge business. Join a supportive critique group, and professional
organizations, such as RWA and its chapters. Develop your voice. Don’t give up.
What other jobs have you held besides writing?
Boat cleaner, sales clerk,
musician, soldier, college professor and lawyer.
What are you currently reading for fun?
I’m reading Jo Beverly’s
Malloren Series, but I’ve got new releases from Grace Burrowes, Shana Galen and
several others on my Kindle waiting for me.
If you could time travel what era would be your first stop?
LOL, Regency England.
Do you believe in luck?
I do believe in luck.
I also believe in hard work.
What kind of music do you listen to while driving? Same question
for Writing
I don’t. I listen to
NPR. I have to have silence when I write.
Do you play any musical instruments?
I play piano, but not
as well as I used to.

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with Gorgonzola cheese.
I’m always ready for snuggling with my husband.
When I’m alone, I write and read.
