I recently got to ask Laurel McKee some questions about her recent release, Duchess of Sin, and more....
Ali: Congrats on your latest release, Laurel McKee! What can you tell us about Duchess of Sin that we won't read about in the back blurb?
*Laurel McKee: You'll have to read the book to find out all that! :) I love the passionate connection, almost a soulmate-dom, between Anna and Conlan, which I sensed when they first met in book one, "Countess of Scandal," and I also really enjoyed spending time with the secondary characters, getting to know their personalities and destinies. I hope readers enjoy them too!
Ali: How did you come up with the idea for the trilogy of The Daughters of Erin?
*Laurel: Two things really--I love Ireland! It's a beautiful, dramatic country with a turbulent history that seems just perfect for the setting of a passionate romance. And when I was a child I always wished for a sister (I only have one brother!), so the two came together in the stories of the Blacknall sisters and their hunky heroes.
Ali: Out of the three sisters in the trilogy, Eliza, Anna, and Caroline Blacknall, which one would you consider as your favorite and why?
*Laurel: That's such a hard question! They came to feel like they actually were my sisters by the time I finished writing the third book. Eliza is so strong and brave, and Anna beautiful and passionate, all things I'd like to be. But I do like Caroline very much, since she's bookish and kind of shy like me. (but she does get her own wild adventure)
Ali: What's coming up next for you, Laurel?
*Laurel: Caroline's book, "Lady of Seduction," is out in June 2011! I can't wait.
Ali: ... and now for my favorite question... What's you favorite dessert or sweet treat?
*Laurel: Just one??? I have such a terrible sweet tooth, it is REALLY hard to choose just one. Cremé brulee, strawberry shortcake, lemon tarts, oatmeal cookies, I love them all. But I'll always choose anything chocolate!
(omg, her list of sweets makes my mouth water... I just lurve cremé brulee)
