Interview & Giveaway with Victoria Lynne!

Victoria Lynne is author of With This Kiss, Chasing Rainbows, Captured and What Wild Moonlight.

Holly: Hi Victoria, it is great to have you here today! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Victoria Lynne: Thanks so much for giving me a guest spot on your blog, Holly.  I’m a full-time writer, wife, and mother of two teenagers.  I’ve been writing historical romances for years, but I’ve recently branched out into other genres. I’m currently working on a young adult project, along with another historical romance set in England.

Holly: Where did your interest in writing first originate?

Victoria Lynne: I’ve always loved reading. In fact, I read voraciously, so I suppose that was the inspiration behind wanting to pen a novel of my own.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your first published work, Captured?

Victoria Lynne: Captured is set in Virginia during the Civil War, and most of the action takes place behind enemy lines.  The hero is a naval officer who’s just suffered a devastating loss in battle. As a result, he’s removed from duty and assigned the lowly task of escorting a convicted British spy to prison in Washington, DC.  The spy is our heroine, and when they meet the sparks do fly!

Holly: You first published your novel, With this Kiss in 1999. Can you tell us a little bit about this novel and its setting/characters? 

Victoria Lynne: With This Kiss is set in Victorian England. That’s an incredibly romantic period, but also one of great social change. The heroine is a reformer of sorts, driven to address the vast injustices of her age. The hero is wealthy and titled, largely immune to the troubles of the rest of society. When his estate is targeted by an arsonist, his life of privilege and ease is abruptly taken from him. The story is primarily a love story, but it also combines a dose of romantic suspense as the hero and heroine embark on a quest through the streets of 1850’s London in search of the mysterious arsonist..     

Holly: What was your inspiration for this novel?

Victoria Lynne: Beauty and the Beast, all the way.  The heroine is intelligent, kind, beautiful.  The hero is dark, brooding, sexy. They are thrown together through truly awful circumstances, yet they are able to bring out the absolute best in each other.

Holly: Where can we purchase you works?

Victoria Lynne: Right now, I’m distributing exclusively through Amazon.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to readers?

Victoria Lynne: Yes: Thank you! I am always thinking of readers whenever I sit down to write. I want them to enjoy reading my work as much as I love writing it. And I always love to hear from them- feel free to ‘like’ me on Facebook or contact me through email!

Holly: What do your family/friends think of your writing?

Victoria Lynne: My family and friends are very supportive. But people who don’t know me very well always seem surprised. I get a lot of giggles: “Really? You write those kind of books…” You bet. And they’re absolutely fabulous!

Thanks, Holly.  Happy reading, everybody!

With This Kiss by Victoria Lynn

With This Kiss — A Romantic Times ‘Top Pick’!
"Beauty and the beast: they were the scandal of the ton.  All eyes feasted on the beautiful flame-haired gambler in London’s most infamous club.  But Julia Prentisse was interested only in the rake-turned-recluse whom they now called “The Beast.”  She lured him out of the crowded club to a deserted warehouse, where she made her scandalous offer: If he married her and protected her from her uncle, she would help him capture the arsonist who had ruined his life.

An act of heroism had left Morgan St. James burned, scarred for life, but Julia’s bold gaze lit other fires he had long suppressed.  And now this glorious stranger was his bride.  But when he tried to claim his husbandly rights, she demanded three months grace—three months to know a stranger’s mind, to touch a stranger’s soul, to go where no woman had ever gone before.  Into his heart…"

Nominated for Romantic Times  “Best Historical Romance”
  • “Ms. Lynne weaves her magic to bring the reader a bit of poignancy along with a sexually charged romance in this very satisfying historical romantic suspense.  Find a place for this one on your special shelf.”  Romantic Times

  • “A smoldering Victorian era romance.”  Booklist

"Why did you come here?" he asked.
Gathering her courage, she ventured hesitantly, "If you're not too busy, I thought we might do something today. Together. As man and wife."
He released a bored sigh. "What did you have in mind, a waltz? Ordinarily I'd indulge your whim, but as you can see, the orchestra has temporarily abandoned its post."
"I've missed you."
The statement hung in the air between them. Morgan studied her face for a long moment.  "There is a term in fencing for toying with one's opponent."
"Are we opponents?"
"Are you toying?"
"I'm not sure what I'm doing."
"Forgive me if I find that difficult to believe. I've never met a more purposeful woman in my life."
A small smile touched her lips. "Is that good or bad?"
"What do you want, Julia?"
She couldn't remember him ever using her name be­fore. The sound of it rolling off his tongue sent an unex­pected rush of pleasure racing through her. Idly wondering if his reaction would be the same if she spoke his name, she said, "I thought it might be nice if we spent a little time together, Morgan."
She saw something flash in his eyes, but the emotion, whatever it was, vanished too quickly for her to properly define. "Ah. So that's it." A small, cynical smile curved his lips. His gaze moved over her body with scorching inten­sity, as though he were able to see right through to her drawers. He straightened and glanced around the empty room, then back at her. "Interesting timing."
Heat flooded her cheeks. "I didn't mean—"
"Didn't you."
"Certainly not. Must you always be so base?"
"You're the one who came to me."
"With the simple proposition that we attend Lord Attmark's boating party this afternoon," she said, seizing upon the sudden inspiration. "That's all I had in mind."
"Lord Attmark's boating party?"
"I thought it would be quite diverting."
"Floating along a river that smells like rancid sewage in this sweltering heat. That's what you came to see me about."
A knowing smile curved his lips. "Liar."
"I don't know what—"
"Liar," he repeated softy.
