How to Ravish a Rake with Vicky Dreiling
My spotlight author this hour is Vicky Dreiling. She’s a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.” When she’s not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and most of all, long lunches with friends. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.
Her next release is How to Ravish a Rake (April 1, 2012). Don’t you just love that title?
Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can’t, she’ll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security—if little else. What she doesn’t count on is the inappropriate—and irresistible—attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will “The Devil” Darcett . . .
When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton’s shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn’t simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he’s mended his wicked ways . . .

Be sure to leave a comment or question for Vicky so you’ll be entered in this hour’s drawing. She’ll be giving away a signed ARC of How to Ravish a Rake + Romance Trading Cards! Open to US entries only.
My heroine Rika is a skald, a Nordic bard. In a world before cable TV, being a storyteller was a very big deal. She has a prodigious memory and regards her role as a keeper of the lore of the Norse gods and heroes as a sacred trust.
Remember today is Touch of a Rogue‘s release day!
The heroine in Touch of a Rogue is Lady Julianne Tyndale, the widowed Countess of Cambourne. Before her marriage, she was Julianne True, a celebrated actress on Drury Lane. Even though she married well, she’s not entirely respectable, but she doesn’t let that bother her. She’s determined to finish what her dead husband began–reuniting a set of six magical Druid daggers.
