So without further ado, welcome, Amelia!!

Hello, Amelia and welcome to My Book Addiction and More, we are so honored to have you visit with us and our readers today….
AMELIA: Thank you for having me. I’m very happy to be here.
MBA&M: Amelia, please give our readers some insight into Amelia Grey?
AMELIA: The first thing I like to tell people is that I’m a girly-girl. I want my makeup on, my hair sprayed, and my nails polished.  I love to wear lace, pearls, and I love to pull my hair back with a jeweled hair clip.  I also love to watch sports. Baseball and football are my favorites but I’ll watch basketball, too. I read the sports page every day. I love flowers but I don’t want to have to plant them or water them.  I love to travel and no matter where I go I have a book with me to read.
MBA&M: What do you feel the appeal for historical romance is to readers is today?
AMELIA: I’m sure it’s that ‘wouldn’t it be wonderful if’ fantasy.  There’s just something intriguing about different time periods, including the future.  I think most of us readers enjoy thinking and dreaming about the unknown and historical and books help satisfy that curiosty.
MBA&M: How do you feel historical romance has changed through the years?


AMELIA: Actually, I think its changes quite a bit. I used to write American historicals as Gloria Dale Skinner and Charla Cameron. Years ago, editors wanted historicals to be big, meaty, and filled long passages of narrative with lots of historical detail. The average book was anywhere from one hundred to one hundred and twenty thousand words.  Today editors want a fast paced read with lots of dialogue, few details about clothing, decor, and history and not much more than ninety thousand words.   

MBA&M: Who would you credit your love of Historical Romance to and why?
AMELIA: I started reading Harlequin series romances when I was in my early teens.  I must have been twenty when I read The Wolf and The Dove by Kathleen Woodiwess and I’ve been hooked on historical romance ever since.
MBA&M: Where did the inspiration for “The Rogue Steals a Bride”?
AMELIA: The Rogue Steals A Bride is the sixth and final book in the Rogues’ Dynasty Series. The previous book, A Gentleman Says “I Do” had the first twin in it so I knew the last book would have the second twin. I had already set up Matson’s character traits so all I had to do was find the right heroine for him. I decided that the heroine needed to know all about twins so I gave Sophia twin spinster aunts as her chaperones. And by some early reviews I can see the readers are loving Matson and Sophia’s story and the twin aunts, too.
MBA&M: An intriguing plot with Twin spinster aunts,a deathbed promise,a sworn hatred,an untitled gentleman and a woman about to lose her heart,what and how did you develop these characters into an alluring story?
AMELIA: Both Matson and Sophia have issues of from the past they have to deal with before they are free to love and have their happily ever after ending.  Publishers Weekly wrote this in their review: “Sophia plays a dangerous game, urging Mason to seduce her while looking elsewhere for marriage. Sophia’s two aunts, Mae and June, and Sir Randolph Gibson himself are delightful, and series fans will cheer Matson and Sophia to their happy ending.” 
MBA&M: “The Rogue Steals a Bride” is #6 in “The Rogues’ Dynasty” do you feel readers should start at the beginning,”A Duke to Die For”, or do you feel you can read one without the others?


AMELIA: These books do not have to be read in any order as each book stands alone. There are some characters like Sir Randolph Gibson who are in every book but no story line carries over from book to book.  I like to put it this way: Sir Randolph is a best friend to the heroes in the first three books and he is the enemy to the heroes in the last three books.  

MBA&M: How, let’s have a little fun….
AMELIA: I am all for fun so let’s go!
When you hear these words,what do you think of? Fiction or Nonfiction?
AMELIA: Romance 🙂

AMELIA: Romance
Chocolate,Coffee,or Tea?
AMELIA; Chocolate
Cake,Cookies or Pie?
 Real or fiction?
AMELIA: Fiction
Print or Digital?

    Thanks so much for the great giveaway!

  2. Good mornin', Amelia,
    I love your interview and can attest to the fact, folks, that she is a girly-girl. She always looks amazingly perfect the writer's conferences I've had the honor of attending with her. I'm jealous that you get to LIVE in Florida. It's my number one favoritist (that's a word in my dictionary) place to visit.
    This book looks absolutely awesome and BTW, that cover is delicious.

  3. Hi

    I have read the first in The Rogue's Dynasty and look forward to more! I would love a copy of A Marquis to Marry – I would take any version (print or digital) and the digital can be mobi. Thanks so much!

  4. Hi to both of you! I am new to Amelia's books and love Regency-Victoria stories. Your books seem a delight to read.
    I just loved the video The Rogue steals a Bride that I saw on your website!I loved the gypsy music. Please surprise me with a hard copy of one of your books, any one to get me hook to them. I love your book cover, it is so romantic! nlaverdure88@videotron.ca

  5. Good morning!

    I'm very so happy to be at this lovely site today! Thank you for having me.

    We have had a very soggy July so far in Northwest Florida but thankfully it's dry inside!

    Carolyn, you are so sweet. See at conference in Atlanta.

    Hi Pam, good luck!

    Nicole, I'm so glad you enjoyed the video!

    I'll be checking back later in the day so if you have a question or comment, let me know.


  6. Thank you, Amelia for spending time with us today. It is always such a pleasure to have you with us. I enjoy your stories, and this was no exception. I loved it.
    Thanks for sharing your amazing stories with us. I am eager to see what is in store for us next.


  7. Hi Amelia!

    After reading your books for so many years it was great to find out more about you!

    I started reading your books back in 2001 when I read Never a Bride after having read several of your books written as Gloria Skinner (which I had picked up because one of my "boyfriends" in High School was a "Skinner".

    I have loved all your stand-alone books (especially A Little Mischief) but must admit I was thrilled when The Rogues' dynasty series was released and am thrilled you'll have another series coming out! All I can say is "YEAH"!

    They only book that I missed in the Rogues Dynasty series is A Marquis to Marry and I'd love to win a copy!

    Good luck with your new series when it comes out and I can't wait to find out more about it!

  8. Jeanne,
    So good to hear from you and such wonderful comments, too! I have to admit Little Mischief is a favorite of mine too! Thank you for being a fan. If you haven't done it yet like me on FB and keep up with all my books. Facebook.com/AmeliaGreybooks. Stay in touch and thank you and good luck!

    1. Hi Amelia! I found out about you visiting My Book Addiction and more when i visited your Facebook page today! Now if I could just wrench the computer away from my husband more often I could visit more often!

  9. I haven't read Amelia's books yet so I'd like A Duke To Die For A Rogue’s Dynasty #1 in print – cause I like to start a series at the beginning.

  10. I haven't had a chance to read any of the Rogue's Dynasty series yet, so I'd love to win a copy of A Duke To Die For (A Rogue’s Dynasty #1).

  11. I've read the first 3 books so A gentleman Never Tells would be my choice, in digital please.
    I'm a fan of Amelia Grey books!

  12. What a fabulous series this looks to be.

    I'd love to begin with A DUKE TO DIE FOR in print thank you.

  13. Diane, Barbara, Monica and Mary, thank you for stopping by yesterday! I'm wishing all of you good luck in winning the book. Someone from this site will let me know who the winner is and I'll be in touch.

  14. I received an ARC of The Rogue Steals a Bride from Goodreads and although there were some parts of it that I dislike (mostly had to do with the aunts) I did enjoy reading it (review on goodreads). I remember reading the first three books of the series and somehow forgot about it which is not like me. But I do need to go back and read book 4 and 5 just to learn more about the Brentwood's brothers.

    I would love to receive A Gentleman Never Tells in print if possible. I have too many books in digital that I want some in print so I could just stare at the covers.

  15. Since I haven't read any of the books in this series, I'd love to win the print version of A Duke To Die For( A Rogue’s Dynasty #1). I'm adding all the titles to my TBR pile!

  16. Thanks for introducing me to this series, it sounds like some good reads! I would like A DUKE TO DIE FOR in print format. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  17. I love historical romance. I'd like A Duke To Die For A Rogue’s Dynasty in print. Thanks.
