My Q and A:

1. What was the inspiration behind Never Rescue a Rogue?

It was the two main protagonists. Diana Merriwell and Giles Sinclair were and integral part to the 1st instalment of my Merriwell Sisters series—Never Fall for Your Fiancée. From the moment I put them on the page together the banter and sparks began to fly between them, so I knew I had to give them their own story. All I knew before I started writing it, however, was that Giles had some rattling skeletons in his closet because that phrase was also mentioned in book 1. What those skeletons actually were, I had no clue. But it turned out that both Giles and Diana hid big, scandalous secrets so in their story they have to kick a few hornets’ nests—hence the buzzing hornets on the cover. 

2. Where do you prefer to write?

In my little office. Because I write fulltime, it made sense to create a dedicated space for it. I love it because it was expressly designed with just me in mind and its neat and nice and quiet.

3. Are you a writer who plans and plots or are you more of a pantser? 

I’m a total panster. I cannot plot at all. I’ve tried and failed miserably. My odd brain sees and hears the story unfold live in my head like a film, so I write what I’m watching.

4. Who is your favourite character from any book you have read or written and why?

That’s a hard one as after 26 books I have so many that I adore. But if I have to pick just one then I’ll plump for Randolph, the over-dramatic best friend of the hero in The Scoundrel’s Bartered Bride. He has dwarfism but its not stopped him because he’s gregarious, optimistic, manipulative and hopelessly devoted to his long-suffering wife and children. The way he misbehaved during the birth of his child in the middle of that book was spectacular.

5. If you could have a dinner party with 5 famous people including authors past and present, who would you pick?

Oscar Wilde because I adore his witty way with words. Nora Roberts because she is my writing goddess and I wish I had her talent. Ryan Reynolds because he is hilarious and doesn’t take himself too seriously. Billy Connelly because he has always been my favourite comedian and Nora Ephron, who is sadly no longer with us, but who wrote such fabulous screen RomComs I would love to pick her brain.

Never Rescue a Rogue

Why on earth would she want to kiss him when he vexed her so?

Diana Merriwell and Giles Sinclair only tolerate one another for the sake of their nearest and dearest. Everyone believes that they are meant to be together, but Diana and Giles know that it is animosity, not attraction, that fuels their barbed exchanges. Anyway, Diana loves her freedom too much to give it up for marriage, and Giles is happily wedded to his bachelor lifestyle.

After Giles’ curmudgeonly father, the Duke of Harpenden, unexpectedly turns up his toes, it’s only a matter of time before the circumstances of his only son’s birth are revealed. With the threat of blackmail hanging over him, Giles must uncover the truth, or he and all those who depend on him will be ruined.

As Giles and Diana dive into his family’s past, the attraction that they insisted wasn’t there proves impossible to ignore. It seems that the future of the Sinclair estate isn’t the only thing on the line…
