The Other Duke by Jess Michaels
MBA&M: What is the single most important thing you have ever done?
I think the most important thing anyone can do is love and be loved. And I’ve definitely done that. That’s pretty much the best legacy you ever get in this world.

MBA&M: How do prioritize your writing?
After my husband, my writing is my number one priority. I write or promote about 80 hours a week. I’m pretty much always working at this point. LOL

MBA&M: How do you great your creative juices to flowing?
Writing is such a pleasure to me that it’s actually hard to turn the juices off rather than get them flowing. I sit down and my body and mind are trained to write. Even on days when it’s harder, after I get some words going, the switch flips and I’m into the story.

MBA&M: What is the first book you remember reading as a child?
My Mom read to me from before I can even remember, so I don’t know what my first book read to me was. The first book I remembering reading that had a HUGE impact on me was Anne of Green Gables. I wanted so much to be friends with Anne Shirley. Honestly, I still would be.

MBA&M: If you could pick character,main or secondary, as your favorite. Who would it be, from which book and why are they your favorite character?
If you’re talking about from my own books, that would be impossible. I love all my characters and have learned and grown from telling their stories. From another person’s book, I’ll go back to Anne. I would totally hang out with her.

MBA&M: If you could have dinner with one person, real or fictional, who would it be, and where would you go to eat?
Right now I’m in deep introvert mode as the year comes to an end, so I think I’d most like to have dinner with my Mom, Dad, brother and husband in my house. And we’ll be doing just that for Christmas! Our first one together in 13 years!

About the book…

The Other Duke

The Other Duke by Jess Michaels

The Notorious Flynns, Book 1

For years Serafina McPhee has been engaged to marry the heir to the Duke of Hartholm and for almost as long, she has been struggling to find a way out of that engagement. When he suddenly dies, she does not mourn but thrills at the idea that she will be free. Unfortunately, best laid plans go awry when the next in line for the title, her intended’s cousin, Raphael “Rafe” Flynn is forced to take over the engagement. But Serafina knows Rafe’s reputation as a libertine and wants nothing to do with him, either, even if he is devastatingly handsome.

She proposes an arrangement: she will agree to the marriage and provide Rafe with his heir and spare. Once she has done her duty, he will let her go. Rafe is intrigued both by her beauty and by her utter disgust with the idea of being his bride. Women normally fall at his feet, not cringe away from him. However, since their arranged marriage is not something he can escape, he agrees to her terms.

But when he finds out on their wedding night the truth about her torture at the hands of his predecessor, he finds himself driven not just to fulfill his bargain with his new bride, but to introduce her to desire. While they move closer together, surrendering to wicked pleasures, dangerous emotions may violate every agreement they’ve made.
