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?
