Hi everyone! I’m excited to welcome Heather Boyd as our featured author today. I love the topic for her blog because I’ve written a couple of accidental books myself. Welcome Heather!
Even authors have fan girl moments around other authors. *raises hand* Sometimes, despite all good intentions to be cool and utterly professional a small squee slips out when you hear from someone you really admire. Thanks Jess for inviting me to blog on your site today.
I’m Heather. Australian. Writer of sizzling regency era romance novels. I do love a good rogue and a good scandal in the making. My purpose when writing is to entertain, amuse, thrill and occasionally prompt my readers into seducing their own partners. Fan mail like that makes me so proud of my work. I’m a storyteller and hopefully a changer of moods. If I can take you, our dear readers, away from your everyday life for a brief time I’ve done everything I set out to do.
My newest release is An Accidental Affair, which was truly an accidental book. I’d not planned to write it but a fan was very insistent that the best friend from Hunting the Hero needed her own book so I caved to the pressure. LOL In truth I was pretty much a pushover. Arabella had intrigued me too.
Widowed beauty, Arabella Lawson, Lady Farnsworth, knows the value of independence after being trapped in a marriage that left her unfulfilled. Although she longs for a lover at last, she’s expected to chaperone her flirtatious niece during her first season. However, given the way the girl keeps disappearing every chance she gets, there is little hope of a good or speedy result. While searching for her charge yet again, she blunders into one of Lord Rothwell’s scandalous assignations. This time it’s Arabella’s turn to be on the receiving end of his hungry kisses, and she’s far from prepared to make the most of the opportunity.
Gossip may paint Merrick Bishop, the Earl of Rothwell, as a notorious scoundrel when it comes to women, but this season his intentions are honorable. Duty bound to marry, he’s determined to discreetly court an open-minded bride and prove the gossipmongers wrong by being on his very best behavior… until in his frustration, he mistakenly kisses the wrong lady and discovers that everything about the encounter feels so very right. Merrick never once believed he had a chance with shy Arabella, and when the unthinkable happens, she turns to him not for an affair or hopes of marriage but for his friendship and protection from her own family.
Can a rogue with a reputation for breaking hearts convince a widow who only hopes for an affair that their feelings are not only the stirrings of desire but the beginnings of the deepest and truest love?
Thanks, Jess, for the opportunity to blog with you.
Bestselling historical author Heather Boyd believes every character she creates deserves their own happily-ever-after, no matter how much trouble she puts them through. With that goal in mind, she weaves sizzling English set love stories that push the boundaries of regency era propriety to keep readers enthralled until the wee hours of the morning. Brimming with new ideas, she frequently wishes she could type as fast as she conjures new storylines. While writing full time north of Sydney, Australia, Heather collects dust bunnies in all corners of the house and does her best to wrangle her testosterone-fuelled family into submission.
