Is It True: The Viscount's Seduction by Alina K Field @alinakfield #RLFblog #RegencyRomancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Alina K Field author of The Viscount’s Seduction, a Regency Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Searching for the Truth

Lady Sirena Hollister has lost her family, her home, and even her fey abilities, but somehow the fairies have handed her an unexpected chance at a Season in London. From her place on the fringes of high society, she resolves to find the truth about her only brother’s vanishing, and settle her family’s score with the wily English Spy Lord, the Earl of Shaldon. Soon enough, her schemes stir up an unknown enemy…and spark danger of a different sort, in the person of the Earl’s handsome heir, Viscount Bakeley.

Seducing the Beauty

The impertinent hoyden Bakeley met years earlier was as wild as her Irish roots, and just as unlucky. And she’s still an Irish traitor’s sister! But Lady Sirena has grown into a beauty whose charm and courage intrigue him. When danger threatens, Bakeley comes to her rescue, risking scandal, the ton’s disapproval, his interfering father’s ire…and his own heart.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: Regency Romance
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. I have three novellas, one short novel, and one longer novel, the first book in this series, available for fans of Regency romance.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is Book Two in The Sons of the Spy Lord series.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes! I often have to write down ideas that come to me just as I’m falling asleep.
you did research for this book?
Yes, lots and lots! The history of Ireland is fascinating. I also did research on horses and London sewers.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. There are two horses important to the story.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, the story is primarily romance, but there is some suspense.
you speak more than one language?
Yes, sort of, LOL! English is my native language but I also speak Spanish (badly) some German (from my college days and also badly), and I used to be able to manage some French. Use it or lose it, as they say.
you grew up where you live now?
No. I’ve been in California for over 35 years, but I’m originally from the Midwest. I miss those Midwestern autumns and springs, not so much the cold winters and steamy summers!
you love to read?
Yes. And I’m particularly drawn to historical fiction with romance and adventure.
you are never late?
Yes, that’s pretty much true. That’s partly from a lifetime of working in a highly structured environment plus my husband’s influence. He’s fanatically on time.
you love pizza?
LOVE pizza, yes. I like a thin crust with lots of cheese and vegies. I could probably eat pizza every day.
you love sushi?
No. I’ve never been able to figure out the appeal of that dish. But, I’ve never acquired a taste for seafood, either. You order the sushi and I’ll get pizza!
you have a pet?
Yes, I have 2 pets, a dog and a cat.

Alina K Field's new Regency Adventure @alinakfield #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceAlina K Field author of The Bastard’s Iberian Bride answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.

Though I earned a Bachelor of a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, I discovered my true passion is in the much happier world of romance fiction. My roots are in the Midwestern U.S., but after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, I moved to Southern California where I share a midcentury home with my husband, a spunky, blonde, rescued terrier, and the blue-eyed cat who conned his way in for dinner one day and decided the food was too good to leave.

What’s your favorite down-home family style meal?

My mother’s Sunday beef pot roast with pan roasted potatoes, and her homemade cherry pie for dessert. Mm-mmm, I miss my mom’s cooking!

What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?

I must confess, I love to watch the hot-button current event hashtags trending on Twitter (and they change day-to-day) to see the stories before they’ve been officially vetted. Sure, I know some of the posts are inaccurate, slanted, or downright fake, but I love when the folks on the ground manage to scoop the professional media, and I love the diversity of opinions expressed, even if they’re a little crazy!

Describe the perfect vacation.

The perfect vacation is a driving vacation, with no “gotta-be-there-by” commitments. I’d love to take that kind of vacation in the British Isles, if only I could get my driving brain to operate on the other side of the road!

What are your hobbies?

I’m a knitter, and I also sew, nowadays mostly easy, straight-stitch things like curtains and table runners, but I do make the occasional Regency gown.

What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?

My sources include blog posts and articles, memoirs, and historical books. For The Bastard’s Iberian Bride, I used Google maps to try to figure out the route to Gretna Green. I also love Pinterest for helpful images. I make boards for each of my stories to help me with inspiration and description. For the next books in this series, I’m reviewing books I read last year about 18th and 19th century smuggling in England, as well as early 19th century piracy in the West Indies. So much fun!

If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?

Daughter of spies

For a chance at true freedom, Paulette Heardwyn needs the fortune left her by her inscrutable father. But she doesn’t know what it is, where it is, or how to find it, and the only man with answers, the Earl of Shaldon, takes his secrets to the grave. Worse, the dead earl tries to force her marriage to his bastard son—and leaves her prey to a traitor seeking the same treasure she’s after.

Soldier, Steward, Bastard

Bink Gibson is ready to throw off his quiet life as steward to his old commander and head for India and the chance of prosperity. But before he can leave he’s summoned to the deathbed of the Earl of Shaldon, a meddling spymaster, a complete stranger…and his father.

And the Earl has set a trap Bink will never be able to resist.

Welcome Alina K Field, author of The Bastard’s Iberian Bride, a new Regency Romance.
Why did you write this book?
I had a secondary character in one of my earlier books who stuck with me and demanded his own romantic adventure. As it turned out, Bink Gibson was an illegitimate son of an earl who served as a spy lord for England
during the Napoleonic wars. While I like all the titled gentlemen who populate the Regency world, I had a great deal of fun writing a character who doesn’t quite fit in with his aristocratic father and siblings. The Bastard’s Iberian Bride is the first book in a series I’m calling Sons of the Spy Lord.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love historical romances, the more adventurous, the better.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
If I may have two: William Doyle, who appears in several of Joanna Bourne’s books, and is the hero of her book The Forbidden Rose, and Loretta Chase’s Rupert Carsington, the hero of her book Mr. Impossible.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m cleaning up Book 2 in the Sons of the Spy Lord series, doing final revisions.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll be releasing the second book in this series in late summer 2017, and the third book around the end of 2017.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Welcome Alina K Field, author of The Marquess and the
Midwife, a new Regency Romance.
Why did you write
this book?
For starters, I love the Call the Midwife stories, as well
as secret babies. And, a few months before I started The Marquess and the
Midwife, a family member tragically lost a good friend in childbirth to
toxemia. (Unthinkable, right, in the twenty-first century?) I guess pregnancy
and childbirth were on my brain! Somehow, my muse came up with this story.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love Regency romance, and I especially love stories with a
lot of adventure added to the romance.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Hmm. May I have two? I love the rascally Rupert Carsington,
the Mr. Impossible of Loretta Chase’s book by that name. I also like William
Doyle, the bluff , clever spy of Joanna Bourne’s The Forbidden Rose. Actually,
all of Chase’s and Bourne’s characters are brilliant, but they both write the
most delicious heroes.
What are you working
on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming months?
I’m working on a Regency series about four adult children
being married off by their father, an earl who is a retired spy lord. Or is he
retired? Book one is called The Bastard’s Iberian Bride and will be coming this
spring.

About The Marquess and the Midwife

Genre: Regency romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Once upon a time, the younger brother of a marquess fell in
love with his sister’s companion. He was sent off to war, and she was just sent
off, and they both landed in very different worlds.
Now Virgil Radcliffe has returned from his self-imposed
exile on the Continent to take up his late brother’s title and discover the whereabouts
of the only woman he’s ever loved.
Abandoned by her lover and dismissed by her employer,
Ameline Dawes has found a respectable identity as a Waterloo widow, a new life
as a midwife, and a safe, secure home for her twin girls. Called to London at
Christmas to attend her benefactress’s lying-in, she finds herself confronted
by an unexpected house guest–a man determined to woo her anew and win her
again.
But, is loving the new Marquess of Wallingford a mistake
Ameline cannot afford to repeat?
