Today Tammy Falkner is over for an interview and there is a contest too :)
1. How about 3 fun things about yourself to start this with?
TF: 1. I am the ultimate sports mom!
2. I have a houseful of boys. I wouldn’t know what to do with a girl if I had one!
3. My husband has banned me from bringing home any more dogs from shelters.
4. Bonus fact—I hate cats. So I only have five of them.
2. Your new book is called The Magic of ”I Do.” Could you tell me a little about i
TF: It’s the story of Lord Phineas Trimble and Claire Thorne. Claire’s a faerie, and Finn has been tasked with taking her to the country to hold her hostage while his brother takes care of some business. After a little too much to drink, they get too close, and then Claire vanishes before the sun comes up. Three months later, she tumbles into his chambers through a magical painting. With the threat of murder hanging over their heads, they tumble into more and more trouble together.
3. Would you rather live in Faerie or the human world? And why did you choose the one you chose?
TF: I believe in magic, but only the kind of magic you create by doing good deeds and being a good person. So, I choose the human world.
4. How did you decide to write about fairies?
TF: I had already written about vampyres and Lycans in the Regency period, writing as Lydia Dare. I started to think about all the other creatures that might live and interact with the ton. Faeries came to mind, particularly those who have missions and are forbidden from falling in love with humans.
5. What is coming next from you?
TF: Next up from Sourcebooks is THE MAGIC BETWEEN THEM in January of 2014. It’s the last installment in the faerie series. And I also have the first book in a New Adult series called TALL, TATTED AND TEMPTING in July of this year. I’m really excited about it!

THE MAGIC OF “I DO” BY TAMMY FALKNER – IN STORES JUNE 2013
Desperately Seeking Excitement...
With the temporary prohibition on magic on the land of the Fae, Claire Thorne might as well go back to the Regency world. The haut ton has just as many annoying rules as her world, but at least they have parties and dances. Plus, the roguish Lord Phineas "Finn" Trimble is there...
When the feisty faerie tumbles into his room through a magical portal, Finn can't believe how completely unpredictable she is. Even before the two stumble into a dangerous intrigue that threatens both their worlds, Finn discovers that his hitherto carefree life is about to go up in smoke...
