Berkley Sensation

Historical Romance

March 6, 2012



The dazzling wedding of fashions of A Lady’s Favor dress shop are guaranteed to make any girl the talk of the ton. But the brides aren’t the only ones falling in love….

Lady Helaine’s father was cast out of society as a liar and a thief—a scandal which renders her unfit for marriage. In order to provide for herself and her mother, she adopts an assumed name and runs a dressmaker’s shop that specializes in bridal wear for ladies of high society. Helaine is happiest immersed in silk and satin, but she lives in terror that someone will learn her true identity and she will lose everything…again.

Robert Percy, Viscount Redhill, is entranced with the mysterious Helaine and weaves a web of seduction sure to ensnare the delectable dress designer. Yet too late he learns the heartbreaking truth about who she used to be. Now he must find a way to overcome the past to claim Helaine as his own. But what chance has love when a secret mistress becomes a scandalous wife?

Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all “fangirl?”

Jade: Jim Butcher. I love his work. And joss Whedon. Firefly was shiny!

Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?

Jade: Same two because I would learn so much.

Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?

Jade: I love conferences. I'm the rare author extrovert and just get off on all the fun!

Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?

Jade: My iPad that has dozens of books in it. Uh....honestly, I guess I would take pad and paper and write. It will be the only thing that keeps me sane in a bunker while my world is under attack.

Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else’s)

Jade: Harry Dresden from the Dresden files. (Jim Butcher). And of course Ali Flores the heroine of my next blaze...Living The Fantasy by Kathy Lyons. Coming in October. Plus Samuel my hero for the next bridal favors book....Wedded in Sin by Jade Lee. He's just a great character. A guy who lives in his head and is knocked on his butt by love. Think Sherlock Holmes in love....and that just freaks him out!

Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?

Jade: The rescued kid at the beginning of Wicked Seduction. Would love to see how he grows up.

Ali: If you friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?

Jade: Lively. I'm just always doing or thinking or writing. I really need to learn how to be quiet!



*Favorite color: purple

*Favorite food: Duh...Chocolate

*Boots or heels: Heels. Boots make my feet too hot

*eReader or Print: Whatever is at hand. I just want to read

*Beer, Liquor or Wine: Rum. With fruity stuff in it!

*Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: Office chair

*Favorite TV Show: Right now....Smash. And Supernatural. Love me some Sam and Dean!

*Favorite Book series (besides your own): there's a theme here...Dresden by Jim Butcher. I know he's not romance but wow, he's just so very, very good.

*Pj’s or Lingerie: Uh....naked.

*Vampires vs. Shifters: Shifters!

Jade is giving every Simply Ali reader a copy of Engaged in Wickedness!!

WILD CHILD

Lady Gwendolyn is playing with fire. She has a habit of wandering into illicit places with gentlemen just to see how well they kiss. It’s dangerous, but she can’t seem to stop herself and no one in her family is up to the task either.

THE QUIET ONE

Sir Edward Murray is the man who can tame her. He may be just a country baronet, in town for a spell then gone, but the vivacious Lady Gwen draws him as no other. So he devises a carefully plotted campaign to capture the lady as his own. But he never guesses the depth of the lady’s spirit or the power of her passion.

SECRETS!

Why is Lady Gwen risking herself and her reputation with her scandalous forays? When Edward uncovers the truth, he is caught in his own stratagems. She figures out his deceit and may never forgive him. Can Edward convince her that some things aren’t as wicked as they seem? And that love is the wildest ride of all?

Get Your FREE Copy HERE!

Jade is also offering a copy of Devil's Bargain for the Fully Loaded Kindle!!

The death of her father made Lynette a penniless relation. Rather than burden her family, she resigns herself to the inevitable: selling herself into marriage. But to whom? Viscount Marlock—a dark devil, carnal and unrepentant—offers to arrange her match, but for a price. He will teach her all she needed to know about ensnaring a man; will use his touch, his tongue, to open her to the pleasures of the flesh. She, in turn, will obey him without question, trusting his whispered promises. But in this game, who will be caught, and who saved?

Thank You Jade for you Awesome Generosity!!

Don't forget that your comment today enters you not only in the daily prize but the Two Grand Prize Drawings for
A Kindle Fire & One AAD Nola Registration
and
A Loaded Kindle Fire
