WED Historical Sale Blitz & Interview – Characters

Historical Sale Blitz

Hopefully summer frees up a little bit of time for reading. And with Book #1 of these three series on sale for just 99¢, it’s time to start a new series (or 3).

To celebrate the sale, authors Robyn DeHart, Ally Broadfield, and Harmony Williams are spending the week with us! To start, we asked them a bit about the characters in their series.

 What do you love about the hero & heroine in the first book in the series?

Ally Broadfield (author of the How To series): How stubborn they are. They’re a classic enemies to lovers couple, but both of them fought hard against the pull of attraction.

Harmony Williams (author of The Ladies of Passion series): I love the banter between them. Rose can be stubborn but Warren is not willing to back away from the obvious chemistry between them.

Robyn DeHart (Author of The Brotherhood of the Sword series): How stubborn they are. They’re a classic enemies to lovers couple, but both of them fought hard against the pull of attraction.

What characters have been your favorite to write? Why?

Ally: Thornbrook and Louisa from How to Bewilder a Lord. They were both secondary characters in How to Bewitch an Earl, and I had no intention of anything ever happening between them. Luckily they had other ideas.

Harmony: Mary’s go-getter, brazen, “I’ll fix this” attitude is a huge amount of fun to write. She is fearless, even if she is sometimes out of her depth.

Robyn: I love Evie from Undercover With the Earl. She was so fun. I kind of imagined her as Mary, the middle Bennett sister from P&P only with more personality. 😉


Start the How To series, by Ally Broadfield, with How to Beguile a Duke.

Start the Ladies of Passion series, by Harmony Williams, with How to Play the Game of Love. 

Start the Brotherhood of the Sword series by Robyn DeHart, with Undercover with the Earl.

OnlyAViscountWillDo_500ABOUT ONLY A VISCOUNT WILL DO

Lady Alice Worthingham never conforms to Society’s norms. Ever. She loves adventure, new experiences, and approaches life with a sassy attitude Society can take or leave. But even for her, robbery by a highwayman is a bit much.

Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—acting the proper viscount by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his attention is no mean feat, or the wisest of moves.

When Lady Alice learns the truth, the viscount finds that when a well-bred woman seeks revenge, she’ll make a gentleman thief pay for his crimes with everything…including his heart.

Each book in the To Marry a Rogue series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

ABOUT ELIZABETH KEYSIAN 

Elizabeth Keysian felt destined to write historical romance due to her Cornish descent, and an ancestral connection to the Norse god Odin. Being an only child gave her plenty of time to read, create imaginary worlds, produce her own comics, and write sketches and a deplorably bad musical for an amateur dramatics group.

Three decades spent working in museums and archaeology fired Elizabeth’s urge to write, as did living on a Knights Templar estate, with a garage full of skeletons, a resident ghost and a moat teeming with newts.

Elizabeth lives near Bath in England with her partner and cats. Subscribe to her author newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/cxe369
