Romance Historical

Ella Quinn's bachelors are clever, charismatic--and determined to remain single. Yet one by one, they find that fate--and certain irresistible women- -cast doubt on even the best laid plans. . .

Haunted by her past, Lady Caroline Martindale fled England for the solace of her godmother's palazzo in Venice. But if Caro was hoping to escape the charms of marriage-minded men, she's come to the wrong place. And she'll resort to extreme measures to spurn the advances of a dangerously determined Venetian marquis. . .

Though most of his friends have married off, Gervais, Earl of Huntley, remains bent on eluding the parson's mousetrap. But his convictions begin to falter when he arrives in Venice and meets his match in the alluring Lady Caro. What began as a hastily concocted lie to save her from the marquis may become a chance for them both to relinquish their fear--and embrace what they can no longer deny. . .

Re: Desiring Lady Caro

I love your description of your muse and how you argue with her when she refuses to let you do it your own way. So funny, thank you.
(Jen Barnard 9:14am April 9, 2014)

I hope you and your muse continue to have a long and prosperous partnership. Thanks for the chance to win!

The excerpt you posted, really made me laugh!! I truly enjoyed it, and wish I had the book here in my hands, to find out how the story unfolds!! The cover is wonderful, and I'm sure the book will be just as wonderful!! It's always nice to find out a little bit extra from the Author as well. That makes the book a little more special. Thank you for coming here today, and giving that "little bit extra" about the book. I'm really going to look forward to reading it!!
(
Peggy Roberson 9:25am April 9, 2014)

Hi Ella! I had to laugh at the excerpt. Did Caro enjoy her
view the rest of the way up the stairs as much as Huntley
had? (More importantly, will she admit it to herself?)

I'm glad your muse and Caro decided to cooperate!
(
Glenda Martillotti 10:07am April 9, 2014)

i cant wait to see what happens when they both go up them
steps together lol

Thanks so much, Jen. I've never lost so many arguments in my life! But it's all to a good cause.

Ella Quinn 10:54am April 9, 2014)

Thanks, Nancy! Good luck in the drawing!
(
Ella Quinn 10:55am April 9, 2014)

Hi Peggy. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Typically, Caro did not tell me her thoughts on the matter, but I suspect it was too soon for her. I can promise you she changes her mind.
(
Ella Quinn 10:56am April 9, 2014)

Me too, Glenda!
(
Ella Quinn 10:57am April 9, 2014)

I enjoyed reading your creation process. It is sometimes
fascinating to see how our subconscious works. The gift you
have for writing and having your readers being immersed in
the story is one of the highest gifts a writer could ask
for. It does not matter rather you are the tidy neat writer
that can whip out an outline or rather the messy one who has
to be beaten to write an outline. What matters is the final
results captivates as well as entertains your readers. I
feel very privileged when I am able to read a book that I am
immersed in as well as cannot put down. So thank you for
writing and sharing your talent. Your muse may be a part of
the process but the GOD given talent you have shines
through. Regards, Anna

Thanks so much, Bonnie!!

Ella Quinn 12:24pm April 9, 2014)

Anna, thank you so much!! I absolutely believe that God gave me the first, and second, shove toward writing.
(

Ella Quinn 6:59pm April 9, 2014)

Your muse must keep you entertained at times. I think it
would be a great thing to have a must, but at the same time
it would not. This sounds like a very good story. Can't
wait to read it.

Funny Ella! :) I can't say I have a muse, well maybe the ironing board but that's mostly for writers block. I'm a panster and I've been known to write a first chapter, trash it and then write another with about 10 edits to the darn thing but eventually everything gets said and from there I'm on roll. When I get stuck, out comes the ironing board. Hate to iron cuz it's so boring. My mind wanders and before you know it, I've come up with a solution that puts a fast halt to the writer's block. I guess the good news is that there's no right or wrong way to write. :)
