This week’s Friday Feature is an interview with one of my absolute FAVORITE authors, Jess Michaels and a spotlight & giveaway of her newest release, A Matter of Sin.
Do you have a favorite book or author you like to recommend? Do you have a comfort read?
Oh gosh, so many comfort reads. I love Anne of Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery) and On Writing (Stephen King — which is weird, I know but it helps center me as a writer). As for who I’d recommend, I’ve been reading so many great erotic historical romance writers (my genre). Lila Dipasqua, Colette Gale and Kate Pearce are three of my new favorites!!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Video games. I love RPG especially, not fighting games. I also have some selected shooters that I love if I can play them cooperatively with my husband. And when he plays I will also occasionally help him with walk-throughs. We’re geeks.
I’m a sushi junkie. I would eat sushi every day and never get tired of it. My favorites are rainbow rolls (California roll with raw fish on top) and soft shell crab roll.
If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
I honestly cannot picture any universe where I wasn’t a writer. It’s the only “real” job I’ve ever had. I would have to do something in the publishing industry, maybe book marketing.
If you could time travel, what time period would you visit?
I wouldn’t want to STAY there, but I would love to visit the Regency period, which is what I write in. But I like my electronics and comforts too much to hang out for too long. 🙂
Thank you so much for chatting with us today! For more info, please visit Ms. Michaels’ website.
Title: A Matter of Sin by Jess Michaels
The Ladies of Pleasure Series Book One
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd
Genre: Historical, Romance, Red Hots!!
Scandal between the pages…surrender between the sheets.
The Ladies Book of Pleasures, Book 1
The widowed Lady Isabel Avenbury has one remaining younger sister to shepherd into an advantageous marriage, and then she will be free. Free to take a lover to fill her lonely nights—the only option left for a woman on the delicate edge of a certain age.
Except when she chaperones her sister to a country house party, she is taken aback by her sudden, undeniable attraction to the host. And deliciously scandalized when she finds a copy of the notorious, much-gossiped-about Ladies Book of Pleasures in his library.
When Seth Rowland, Marquis Lyndham, notices his book is missing, his interest is piqued as to which of the potential young brides at his party has absconded with it—and he’s shocked to discover it’s Isabel. Though older than the women he’d planned to court, the powerful beauty exudes a sensuality he cannot ignore.
The book inspires them to begin a desperate, passionate affair. But their time together is running out and they must choose. Follow society’s rules, or take a chance at love.
Product Warnings: Found within are highly scandalous books that trigger passionate desires, surrender in the orangery and possibly true love.
