A Tricky Tale

One of the fun things about doing a weekly blog is that it gives me the opportunity to meet authors from not only in the United States, but from around the world. Today's guest in My Writing Corner is author Rachel Brimble who hails from a small town near Bath, England.

Rachel lives with her husband, two adult daughters and beloved Labrador in a small town near Bath, England. She is the author of 30 novels and has been published by Harlequin Mills & Boon, Kensington Books and others. Her latest series includes the Ladies of Carson Street trilogy and the Shop Girl series, both published with Aria Fiction. She also has several single titles with The Wild Rose Press. Her debut novel with publisher Harpeth Road Press, Dressing The Countess, is due for release in May 2024.

Rachel is a member of the Romantic Novelists Association and the Female Entrepreneur Association and has thousands of social media followers all over the world.. Since that isn't enough to keep her busy, along with her writing, she is also studying for a history degree with the Open University in her spare time… 

Rachel, what is the book that you will feature today and how did you come up with the idea to write it?

The book is Her Scandalous Suitor and I came up with the idea for this book after watching a British period drama where one of the characters I absolutely fell in love with was a confidence trickster. I just knew I had to write a hero with the same occupation...'

Let's get a blurb:

Emily Darson assumed her future of propriety and privilege amid a loveless marriage was set in stone. At least, she did until confidence trickster Will Samson came into her life...

Then everything changed.

With each revelation about her fiancé and herself that Will uncovers, he also reveals a little more of who he is, what he has suffered, and the volatile vengeance that burns in his heart.

Can Emily really risk security for scandal? Loyalty for love? Only time will tell…

Let's get more information about the story by talking to Emily:

What do you want your future to be?

Is it enough to say happy? For me, happiness is independent thinking, excitement of what I might achieve next and family – hopefully, with a kind, supportive man beside me to share it with.

Tell us a little about the man you are about to marry. 

Nicholas is…a difficult man, ambitious but more often than not frustrated. He can be unkind at times and quite pompous. The reality of my future doesn’t look quite as I’d like it, does it?  

What attracted you to him and what frightens you about marrying him?

We have known each other since childhood – our fathers were business partners in a tobacco company until Nicholas’s father sadly passed away. I am frightened about what marrying Nicholas will mean for the rest of my life. He is beginning to make certain signs that our marriage will very much be on his terms rather than ours.

What was your first impression of Will Samson?

Flirtatious, intriguing, exciting… and a rogue of the highest order!

What intrigues you about him?  

He seems so entirely sure of his direction in life, yet at other times can be easily consumed by something that veers him off course. He has secrets, I’m sure. Many secrets…

What frightens you about him?

That he has appeared in my life now when I am due to be married – it’s frightening how he has stirred such new and wonderful feelings inside of me. A yearning for more, to be more.
