Author Interview and bookgiveaway: Emily Greenwood

I have one more author interview before Christmas. Today's author is Emily Greenwood and there is a giveaway at the end too.

Welcome!

Thank you so much for having me here today to celebrate the release of GENTLEMEN PREFER MISCHIEF!

1. Tell me about yourself
I love to read and cook, and I love writing when it’s going well, and not so much when it isn’t J I have watched a decadent number of TV and movie productions of nineteenth century books. Austen, Bronte, Dickens, Eliot—I find them all enduringly fascinating. I have two teenage daughters and a husband, who are all super supportive about my writing. 

2. Your new book is called Gentlemen prefer Mischief.  Tell me about the book too :)
It all starts with haunted sheep. Or rather, rumors that the sheep belonging to Miss Lily Teagarden have become possessed by the evil spirit that’s believed to inhabit the woods between her family’s property and the estate belonging to their neighbor, Hal, Viscount Roxham. The rumors are causing trouble and she needs Hal’s help, however much she doesn’t want to ask for it— he’s pretty much her least favorite person.

A teasing, playful rake, Hal broke Lily’s heart four years ago without even knowing it. When this prim, cool beauty appears at his estate and insists he resolve the problem in the woods, he’s instantly intrigued, both by her ridiculous problem, and the way she’s changed since he last saw her years ago. But hardly has he begun to investigate when she mysteriously begins throwing mischief in his path. Soon, the fascinated Hal can’t seem to get enough of Lily—too bad she’s the only woman in England who doesn’t think he’s Lord Perfect.

3. Why is Roxham the man to fall in love with this winter?
Roxham would definitely keep a reader feeling cheery over the long days of winter. He’s a golden boy from the top of his blond head to the soles of his polished black boots, and it’s hard to miss the spark of mischief in his blue-green eyes. In addition to being witty and smart, he’s all about play and pleasure…what’s not to like? 

4. What made you drawn to writing historical romance?
Many of my favorite books were written in nineteenth century Britain. In addition to loving the pretty settings and clothes, I’m fascinated by the tensions in a society so ruled by class and gender. So when I discovered authors like Mary Balogh, Jo Beverley, and Judith Ivory, I was hooked on historical romance.

5.  What is coming next from you?
The final book in my Mischief series is MISCHIEF BY MOONLIGHT, which will be out in June 2014. Here’s the story in a nutshell: Engaged to the perfect man, Miss Josie Cardworthy wants her sister to find the same bliss—with Josie’s dear friend, the Earl of Ivorwood. But when Josie gives Ivorwood a love potion, she’s the one who falls under the handsome earl’s spell.

Thanks!
