Abschnitt 4. Abschnitt 5. Abschnitt 6. Jack has been the hardest character so far. He does a turn in Pickpocket Countess as a man who dresses as a fop but works for the king as a private agent. After all, their story is set four years after Pickpocket Countess. It is now But I did write three different opening chapters before ending up with a first chapter that worked. She started to realize that chapter 3 usually ended up being chapter 1. That worked for me in this case. DC: I know I gave you a little bit of a hard time in my review about less action in The Viscount Claims His Bride , but I did enjoy the story and I know other readers really liked this book for that same reason.
Do you even think of things like that when writing? Are you surprised at the reactions you do get from your readers on this type of issue? BS: I usually feel like I know what people will appreciate ahead of time. They got into the setting, the descriptions of the weather, of Cornwall and its wildlife, the cool bit about visiting Trist House while it was under restoration which it really was that year , the banking issue that plays a small part in the story, the conversation Beldon and Valerian have about the Bickford fuse, all of that had enormous appeal for them.
Romantic Times even noted the excellent overview the book provides about post Napoleonic Europe, which tickled me silly because I am a double minor in history and foreign policy. These readers liked Viscount , and I knew they would. On the other hand, the Notorious Rake readership loved the two Undones but found Viscount too slow for their tastes.
Crispin spends plenty of time in bed with the unconventional heroine, Aurora Calhoun. Still, for history lovers out there, I do have some interesting historical background. Aurora is set on racing in the premiere steeple chase of the time; St. I found great documentation of the St. Albans steeple chase; the list of riders and horses, who finished, who fell, which horse had a fatal accident on the course, the controversy about the starting line and the controversy over who wins, even information on the hotel the riders stayed at.

As you can see, I was very excited about that part of the book. It was also interesting to me that scientists think we have a love radar that is pretty accurate up until the age of This makes sense to me. The pre love radar for most of us, draws us to people who are like us, value the same things, see the world the same way.
I wanted to explore that with Val and Phillippa. In this story, the villain is a perfect foil for the love radar theory. On the surface, Lucien is everything society says she ought to respect in a man and a second husband, but beneath the surface the reader learns he is very corrupt. DC: You also write under the name of Nikki Poppen.

I have written six books with them since The Heroine is absolutely a virgin or the issue of her purity never really comes up and there are no explicit love scenes. Essentially, PG or PG rated romance books. I love working with her. DC: How do you feel your male or female characters have evolved over your career? Do you think you write them differently now than you did when you started? The big difference I can see these days is the style of revisions my editor at Harlequin sends.
Early on there were comments about how realistic it would be for a character to think certain things at certain times. Instead of paragraphs of back story or a big self-disclosure chapter, now I try to work in the bits and pieces through dialogue tags. Can you give us a sneak peek? BS: I like this story so much! Her father, a British diplomat, dies in St. Petersburg and she and her sisters return to London. The British want this list and so do the Russians.
The race is on. Peyton and Tessa are both sharp, sophisticated adults who understand their political world. I had a great time with their history. BS: I like 19th century history, so I am very happy there.

I would like to do more American fiction. I have great hopes of doing American history stories along the lines of what Philippa Gregory has done with English history. I would also like to write American centered historical romance. BS: It really depends. My North American releases came out in the UK within a couple months of their release here. BS: Keep writing!
