The Pride of a Gentleman @lindaraesa #RLFblog #regency

Welcome Linda Rae Sande author of The Pride of a Gentleman, a new early Regency romance.

Why did you write this book?
This is the second book in the epic series, "The Cousins of the Aristocracy". Although it can be read as a standalone, it's a follow-up to The Promise Of A Gentleman and features the four couples that ended up together at the end of that epic historical romance. Their stories certainly didn't end there, as they've all been included as minor characters in some other of my books that take place in 1814 - 1818. After sixteen novels, my Regency world has grown rather large, but I'm careful to keep track of everyone and all their relations.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Regency romances, although I used to read science fiction exclusively for many years.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Susan Calvin from Isaac Asimov's "Robot" series.
What are you working on at the moment?
Book 3 in "The Widows of the Aristocracy" series.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
The Honeymoon of a Marquess is up next, a sensual tale featuring two couples that end up courting and marrying over the course of just a couple of days. As with most of my other books, it includes a good deal of humor and a surprising hero. The other hero is a "silver fox". I love writing older characters and have begun featuring more of them in my books.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
First comes matchmaking. Then comes marriage. Then comes a baby carriage ... well, usually.
Life in 1802 London throbs with great expectations and unlimited potential. A house under renovation reveals its secrets, and newlyweds Gregory and Christiana Grandby embark on a wedding trip to Italy, determined to keep their secret.
Thomas Wellingham's import business grows faster than he can manage with his brash and brave new wife Emma as head accountant.
Thomas' best friend, Todd Vandermeer, accepts his offer of employment despite concerns about the viability of Wellingham Imports. His wife, Deborah, is expecting their first child, after all, and he needs the position.
Now that he's completed his life's work renovating every townhouse his wife, Sophia, owns, James Simpson is ready for a new job—that of father. Having informed Sophia he would like an heir, he's surprised to discover plans for a family aren't so far-fetched. But can she abide a late-in-life pregnancy and the possibility of heartbreak should it all go wrong?
Can best friends and family remain so when life doesn't quite get it right? Are romance and marriage compatible, reconcilable? Perhaps, but only if they can overcome "The Pride of a Gentleman."
