Interview with Lauren Linwood
Why did you write this book?
I have always enjoyed reading books in a series, but I had never written a series of my own. I decided after nine standalone romances that creating a series would be my next creative challenge. It's a lot to keep up with, but I am finding the process truly satisfying.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy thrillers that have some type of historical connection. Steve Berry and Brad Meltzer do a fabulous job of weaving history into action-packed stories that keep a reader guessing till the very end.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I'm a true Pride and Prejudice fan, so Elizabeth Bennet is my favorite heroine, as she is for many readers and writers of romance. Lizzy is intelligent, compassionate, loyal, witty, charming, and feisty--everything I love in a heroine.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
My Knights of Valor series is claiming all my attention these days! Every book will have a connection to Word of Honor's hero, Geoffrey de Montfort. Geoffrey's best friend (and cousin) is the focus of Marked by Honor, releasing in July, and his niece is featured in Code of Honor, coming in October. Three more books from this medieval historical romance series will be released in 2017 that will be the stories of Geoffrey's other niece and two of his children.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Merryn Mantel and Geoffrey de Montfort have loved each other since childhood. Once betrothed, Geoffrey leaves for the wars in France for five long years. Upon his return, the two marry and spend one blissful night consummating their love and making plans for their future.
But her new husband vanishes the next day without a trace. Merryn grieves for almost seven years--and then Geoffrey returns to her--changed from the boy and man she knew and worshipped. This stranger refuses to reveal where he has been and why he stayed away for so long.
Will her husband's silence create a rift too large to heal, or can Merryn and Geoffrey recapture the love they once shared?
