Welcome Alina K Field, author of The Marquess and the Midwife, a new Regency Romance.
Why did you write this book?
For starters, I love the Call the Midwife stories, as well as secret babies. And, a few months before I started The Marquess and the Midwife, a family member tragically lost a good friend in childbirth to toxemia. (Unthinkable, right, in the twenty-first century?) I guess pregnancy and childbirth were on my brain! Somehow, my muse came up with this story.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love Regency romance, and I especially love stories with a lot of adventure added to the romance.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Hmm. May I have two? I love the rascally Rupert Carsington, the Mr. Impossible of Loretta Chase's book by that name. I also like William Doyle, the bluff , clever spy of Joanna Bourne's The Forbidden Rose. Actually, all of Chase's and Bourne's characters are brilliant, but they both write the most delicious heroes.
What are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming months?
I'm working on a Regency series about four adult children being married off by their father, an earl who is a retired spy lord. Or is he retired? Book one is called The Bastard's Iberian Bride and will be coming this spring.
About The Marquess and the Midwife
Genre: Regency romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Once upon a time, the younger brother of a marquess fell in love with his sister's companion. He was sent off to war, and she was just sent off, and they both landed in very different worlds.
Now Virgil Radcliffe has returned from his self-imposed exile on the Continent to take up his late brother's title and discover the whereabouts of the only woman he's ever loved.
Abandoned by her lover and dismissed by her employer, Ameline Dawes has found a respectable identity as a Waterloo widow, a new life as a midwife, and a safe, secure home for her twin girls. Called to London at Christmas to attend her benefactress's lying-in, she finds herself confronted by an unexpected house guest--a man determined to woo her anew and win her again.
But, is loving the new Marquess of Wallingford a mistake Ameline cannot afford to repeat?
