Today my guest is author Kate Pearce.
Kate chose to do the “Complete the Sentences – Book Version” to tell us a little about her new release.
My book is titled: Simply Shameless
It got that title because: it is part of a series of Simply something books and it fits the heroine down to a ‘t’
My book is about: Madame Helene Delornay who runs a very exclusive pleasure house in Regency London and Mr. Philip Ross, a gentleman from her past who reappears in her life with very interesting consequences.
The idea for my book came from: Madame Helene being a secondary character in the first two books, Simply Sexual and Simply Sinful. I wanted to write about this interesting woman from the beginning and was glad to get the opportunity.
I think readers will like the hero because: He is one of the only men in the world who is smart and sexy enough to deal with Helene and offer her the kind of love she really needs.
I think readers will like the heroine because: she is a strong woman who has been through terrible suffering but has refused to let herself be dragged down and has triumphed in life on her own particular terms.
If I had to describe the hero and heroine’s relationship with one word, that word would be: combustible! -is that a word?
My favorite character in the book is: Helene
I like this character because: she is not ashamed to own her sexuality and run her own business in a time when women were often treated like chattels. And she’s made mistakes but she is trying her best to redeem them.
My book is set in: Regency England
I chose this setting because: I love this time period above all others.
While writing this book, I: found myself really loving how Philip handled Helene, his honesty, his humor and the fact that he ends up respecting and loving her, which is no more than she deserves.
The thing I enjoyed most about writing this book was: the snappy dialogue, and the scorching sex scenes.
What surprised me most while writing this book is: how hard it was to end it and let them be happily ever after. I could’ve gone on writing about them for at least another book 🙂
