“Welcome, ladies, the next few weeks will decide your future. But before all that, let me introduce you to my son, Nicholas. To one of you, he’ll be a future husband. To the rest, a nightmare who will haunt your dreams for whatever time you have left.”
Born into privilege, Victoria Hamilton has endured a life of opulent captivity. Disallowed to associate with any men outside her kin, she ventures beyond her gilded cage vicariously, through the art books she adores and the adventures of her dear friend, Tamara. Nevertheless, this staid existence has left her naïve and wildly unprepared when Victoria is finally allowed to debut into society…a debut unlike any other, with no place for the weak.
The arrogantly debauched Nicholas Cavendish, Earl of Lullington, knows he must marry on his thirtieth birthday to inherit his controlling father’s dukedom. The five women selected for him will undergo depraved trials no genteel woman should ever be made to suffer. But for Nicholas, what begins as a means to an end quickly becomes a matter of the heart, thanks to one woman—the brave, beautiful and achingly innocent Victoria.
Sentiment and secrecy make for poor bedfellows, with the Cavendish family legacy being the biggest, most dangerous secret of all. And despite all she’s endured to win her place by his side, Victoria may find Nicholas is truly the one in need of saving.
Innocence and naiveté make Amy Jones a rare breed among exotic dancers. She does the job reluctantly…but there’s no hesitation when she meets a mesmerizing, sophisticated stranger while on holiday. Under his skilled hand, she’ll learn the depth of her own strength even as she surrenders to his masterful control.
Successful businessman James North avoids a dark past by hiding behind an enviable career and rigid control—over his business and pleasure. One night with blonde goddess Amy, however, and the blazing attraction that erupts between them throws his ordered black-and-white world into multiple shades of ecstasy.
When innocence and experience collide, the volcanic explosion may burn everything in its path…including the couple’s fledgling love.
We got a chance to catch up with Anna Edwards. We love being nosey and getting down and dirty, so we did a little Q&A. Let’s see what she had to say!
Q & A Questions
What made you decide to become an author?
I was originally part of a role playing group on Twitter, I met Charity Hendry, who at the time worked for Carrie Ann Ryan, she persuaded me to write a book and the rest is history.
What is the hardest thing about writing for you?
My brain works too fast for my fingers. Most of what I type at the start is a complete mess.
Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book?
I have to plan my story fully before I write it, ok, the characters often go off on a tangent but I need to have a plan in front of me.
Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most?
There are so many wonderful authors who’ve helped me over the years but I have to say Carrie Ann Ryan, Kristen Proby and Donna Grant to name three.
Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why?
My favorite character is William from Tainted Reasoning. He’s autistic and that is something close to my heart. He was hard to write but at the same time liberating. He’s not the typical hero but I just let him go with what he wanted in the story.
Would you consider collaborating a book with anyone else? If so…who? Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with?
I’ve collaborated with several authors already, Dani Renè, Claire Marta, Lexi C. Foss and Maria Macdonald. My unicorn author would probably be Pepper Winters. I’m a big fan.
Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking?
I can’t give you just one, I have so many. Donna Grant and Pepper Winters are two of my top ones though.
What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish?
Learn to be yourself on social media, that is the most important part. I’m very shy as a person and I’ve taken some knocks over the years I’ve been writing but I’ve always been honest and kind. The truth will always show through in the end.
If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be?
Long or thick? You know what I mean. ;->
What is your writing kryptonite?
My kids at the moment but thankfully they are hopefully going back to school in a few days.
Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go?
I always plot, I was an accountant previously so I have a fancy spreadsheet.
Doyou want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other?
I always build universes with my books because I hate leaving characters behind. After I finish that series I always seem to bring the characters into the new books I write.
If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be?
Trust your instincts with your story. You may get criticized for something you write but you can’t please everyone all the time. Trust in your story. I once had a reviewer tell me I know nothing about autism. My son is autistic so I think I do, my experience was different to hers. You can’t please everyone so don’t try.
What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book?
Don’t be afraid to ask other authors for help, some may say no but the majority will love to help you.
What is a guilty pleasure?
What is your favorite movie?
I don’t really watch movies, I’m more of a documentary person.
Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
Florida where my best friend Charity Hendry lives.
What’s an Item on your bucket list?
To visit Salem where the witch trials happened.
What is your most treasured possession?
My wedding rings
Do you have a spirit animal? If so, what is it?
It has to be a snow leopard, I adore them and even wrote a paranormal romance with once as the lead character.
What is your favorite holiday & why?
Anywhere I can sit back and chill out. I need it.
If you could have a superpower, what would you choose?
Teleportation. I would love to travel the world without the airport experience.
What would be your theme song?
I’ve absolutely no idea, something about being quiet on the outside but twisted on the inside.
What is the funniest thing someone has ever said to you?
The innocent ones are always the worse. I think I’ve said funnier things lately. I’d had a couple of glasses (bottles) of wine the other day and my daughter asked me to turn her fan on. I told her no because the chickens would do it. We don’t have chickens so where that came from I have no idea
What’s your favorite candy?
About Anna Edwards
Anna Edwards is a British author from the depths of the rural countryside near London. When she has some spare time, she can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzo. She’s an avid reader who turned to writing to combat her depression and anxiety. She has a love of traveling and likes to bring this to her stories to give them the air of reality. She likes her heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, her heroines demure but with spunk, and her books full of dramatic suspense.
We got a chance to catch up with the amazing Kaylee Ryan. We love being nosey and getting down and dirty, so we did a little Q&A. Let’s see what she had to say!
What made you decide to become an author? I’ve always loved to read and wanted to tell the stories of the characters in my head. I never imagined I would be publishing.
What is the hardest thing about writing for you? It’s a lonely job. You miss out on a lot of events with family and friends to get your stories down and out into the world.
Do you have any routines or superstitions that you go through whenever you write a book – Such as a specific room to write in, certain drink, same pen/pencil every time, specific music or noise? Release a book? Not really. I do listen to music when I write. I also have a notebook for every book. I like to write notes and ideas. It helps me work out the plot and keep track of the characters.
Who is the one person in the writing profession who has inspired you the most? There are so many. I can’t’ choose just one. Recently, I would say my writing partner Lacey Black. It helps to bounce ideas and not feel like you are isolated from the word when you write.
Which character is your favorite? Which character was the hardest to write? Why? I love them all. Each of them holds a special place in my heart. The hardest would have to be Unexpected Bond. I can’t tell you too much without spoilers, but that story hit close to home for me.
Would you consider collaborating a book with anyone else? If so…who? Who would be your unicorn author to collaborate with? Just my writing BFF, Lacey Black. We have a very similar writing style, and overall outlook on life. I couldn’t imagine writing with anyone else.
Who is your favorite author…someone that you will buy their book even without thinking? Lacey Black, Catherine Cowles, Kelly Elliott, my list is long. I one-click so many of my peer’s books to support them knowing it will be hard to ever be able to read them all.
What is your best piece of advice for someone who wants to write or publish? Write for you. Don’t write to the market. Write what you love, hire a good editor, and cover designer.
If you could ask your readers 1 question and have them all answer…what would it be? Names. My reader group always helps me out with new names for characters.
What is your writing kryptonite? Babies and single dads.
Do you plot out your book or do you write as you go? Both. I have a loose plot and make notes in my notebook as I move along. Sometimes I go off the path and change what I thought the story was going to be, and sometimes I stay on track. It’s different with every book.
Do you want each book or series to stand on its own or are you building a universe where all the books/series connect with each other? I’ve done both. The books can be read as standalone, but the world-building is strong. I love the strong family and friendship dynamics that it brings to each story.
If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice related to writing what would it be? Don’t sweat the small stuff. Not everyone is going to love your work and that’s okay. There are millions of stories out there, which means there is something for everyone.
What is the biggest lesson you learned after you published your first book? Everyone gets bad reviews. Don’t take them to heart. One person may love what another hates. You have to learn to roll with the punches and accept that.
What is a guilty pleasure? Reading! When I have time.
What is your favorite movie? Sweet Home Alabama
Do you have a favorite vacation spot? The mountains!
What’s an Item on your bucket list? Visit Australia
What is your most treasured possession? That’s a toss up between my Kindle and my laptop. LOL
Do you have a spirit animal? If so, what is it? No.
What is your favorite holiday & why? Thanksgiving. It’s a time for everyone to get together. You don’t have to stress about gifts, or how much money your spending. It’s just a day to eat, catch up with family, watch some football and chill.
If you could have a superpower, what would you choose? Be in two places at once.
