GUEST POST: ROBYN DEHART, THE TEMPTATIONS OF ANNA JACOBS….

The Temptations of Anna Jacobs

Dangerous Liaisons book 2

TODAY’S GUEST:

Welcome, Robyn!!

When I was in college I got my degree in Sociology with an emphasis on social deviance. Of course it wasn’t me that was being the deviant only that most of the classes I took focused on those topics. Juvenile Delinquency, Criminology, Violent Crimes, Social Deviance… I was fascinated. Yet when I had the meeting with my internship director and she asked me “if you could have any job in the world, what would it be?” I proudly declared, “an historical romance author.” Needless to say she was momentarily dismayed, but we worked it all out, in the form of my internship with Bestselling Author, Pamela Morsi. Of course that’s a whole ‘nothing blog.

But all my friends and family who knew what I studied in college kept asking when I was going to incorporate all my “kill your mama” stuff (as my sister calls it) into my writing. I’ve dabbled in it through the years, the body count is pretty high in my Legend Hunters series, but frankly I was dying (okay bad pun!) to write a romantic suspense. I wanted to write a serial killer book. And hello, I already write in the Victorian era so you know there’s that one killer…Jack the Ripper.

There are so many different theories about the identity of Jack the Ripper. Even today the mystery begs to be solved. Patricia Cornwall thinks she solved the case. I watched a fascinating documentary about a former NYPD cold case detective who thinks he’s uncovered Jack’s identity. He made a very good argument. At the time of the murders the theories ranged from a barber to a doctor to a member of the royal family. I came up with my own story for Jack, but I don’t want to reveal any spoilers.

The first book in the series, The Secrets of Mia Danvers, received some great critical acclaim. And now readers can return to my dark Victorian series with the sequel, The Temptations of Anna Jacobs. I really can’t wait for readers to step into the world I’ve created and I sure hope everyone loves it.

Love and justice…

When Drew Foster is released from prison, he doesn’t much care about salvaging his soiled reputation. Though he’s working undercover, everyone in Victorian London believes him guilty of the Jack the Ripper murders and that his brother paid for his “innocence.”

Despite her genteel upbringing, Anna Jacobs is intent on finishing medical school and becoming a physician. Society’s ridicule has never bothered her, but when her brother, the Yard’s best detective, is scorned for letting Drew go, she confronts the one man who can set the record straight at a ball. She certainly doesn’t count on the rogue being dashing and handsome, nor on him stealing a passionate kiss.

Thanks, Robyn for stopping by today. What a great pleasure to have you visit with us and our readers today.

Love and justice…  

When Drew Foster is released from prison, he doesn’t much care about salvaging his soiled reputation. Though he’s working undercover, everyone in Victorian London believes him guilty of the Jack the Ripper murders and that his brother paid for his “innocence.”

Despite her genteel upbringing, Anna Jacobs is intent on finishing medical school and becoming a physician. Society’s ridicule has never bothered her, but when her brother, the Yard’s best detective, is scorned for letting Drew go, she confronts the one man who can set the record straight at a ball. She certainly doesn’t count on the rogue being dashing and handsome, nor on him stealing a passionate kiss.

Anna’s brazen contempt for his dangerous reputation captivates Drew, but he is harboring secrets that make him unfit to court any proper woman. As he finds himself an outsider among his colleagues at Scotland Yard, the feisty beauty offers up her medical knowledge to assist him on the case. But when the real killer returns to London to continue his reign of terror, can Anna find safety in Drew’s arms?

Author Bio:
I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. I especially love romance and adore writing about people falling in love. I live a lot in the worlds I create and I actively speak to my characters (out loud). I have a warrior way “never give up on my dream.” When I am not writing, I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from Walking Dead, watching Japanese anime and playing video games with my love– Dusean Nelson.

The Duke’s Shotgun Wedding Book Synopsis:
Victorian Era England…
As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s will remains strong. If the only way to save her family’s estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction—and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself…

But she’s made the first move against a very dangerous opponent…

For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it’s his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire—even if she means to only marry for his money—would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her… and demand his own satisfaction in return.

The Affair Book Synopsis:
She was his for one week only…
When a beautiful stranger ducks into his bookshop during a rainstorm, Cale Cameron, well-known rake, is instantly attracted to her. Elizabeth, Lady Thornhill, is restless and hungers for something she cannot name. Society would never accept a countess and a mere bookseller, so they agree to a one week affair to indulge their desire.
As their passion ignites and their connection grows, Elizabeth threatens the one thing Cale has protected above all else—his heart. Letting her go is the only solution…and the one thing he is not prepared to do.

MY THOUGHTS:

http://www.pumpupyourbook.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/AffairFinal_500.jpg

THE AFFAIR by Lily Maxton is another delightfully entertaining Regency Historical Romance. A quick read, a novella of only about 68 pages, but a great read! Follow, Elizabeth, Lady Thornhill and Cale Cameron on their journey to their HEA, hopefully. For only one week, Elizabeth would be Cale’s, oh, but things don’t always happen as expected or as is supposed to happen. As these two learn. Passion ignites between the two and the rest as they say….is history!

Well written with very entertaining and sensual characters. Very well done, Ms. Maxton. I would recommend this quick novella to any and all Historical Romance readers! You will not be disappointed! Received for an honest review.
