Taking a step away from my usual reviews, I wanted to bring you a preview/interview as a stop on Christina Ow’s blog tour for her new book Trial of Love. I don’t know how many of you are familiar with her writing, she’s written several books that i’m a fan of and the latest release is coming out soon.
and….there’s a giveaway so keep reading!
Check it out….
Christina OW writes suspense, thrillers, erotica, interracial and multicultural romance books. She is the author of Contemporary, Fantasy, Paranormal, Regency Romance books and a poet of currently 3 titles. She loves reading novels that take her on a ride of wild emotions. Books have always been an escape for her, for a few hours she gets to live the lives of characters she grows to cherish and admire. She’s always had an active imagination and because of it has lived in her head more than she has been in the outside world. She always imagined scenarios and wondered how they would turn out in the end, and what kind of emotions they would invoke. Thus began her writing career.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? My love for reading novels started a very long time, about when I was 10 or 11. I was in awe of how a person’s imagination could just take form and fill up pages. I loved the fact that I would read the words and watch it play out in my mind. Some of the books became way more interesting than watching TV!
I’m a person who lives in her head more than the outside world because off all the stories in my head. So I figured maybe I should put down all the stories I had in my head on paper, and share them, see if everyone else loved them as much as I did.
What about historical/regency romance? I wasn’t much of a fan because the books I’d read so far the characters just seemed stuffy and annoying. But then I found several books published by Second Wind Publishing and I was hooked!
Their books were more than just trying to be historically accurate, they had everything and they seemed to come alive through the words and I couldn’t stop reading them. I’m a huge Regency fan now.
Do you have a favorite and a least favorite scene in the book? Yes, I do have a favorite scene and a scene that I didn’t like writing but was necessary in the book. A person’s character is built buy the positive and negative things in their lives and the same goes for books.
Is TOL apart of the series? How many books are in the series? Yes, Trial of Love is apart of the series and the first book. So far, there are 3 books in the series, TOL, A Lady Unbecoming and Lady Nancy.
I’m still playing with the idea of adding more books about some of the supporting characters in TOL. I’ll see how these 3 books go first then take it from there.
Any more new releases for 2014 from you? Yes. His Paris Affair (Albury Affairs #3) will be out in late June and I’m expecting Book #2 of the Slave Bound series A Lady Unbecoming to be released later on this year.
Trial Of Love, a turbulent love story about a slave from America and the Earl who saved her from a fate worse than death.
After her mother’s death, Melanie’s life in America is full of heartache. Still, she has never allowed herself to despair. She was responsible for the care of her beloved father. Then he remarried a woman to wicked to be considered a mother to Melanie or her two sisters. After years of abuse, the stepmother sells Melanie off—to work in a brothel, and about to be sold to the highest bidder. Through a series of fortuitous events, Melanie falls into the care of Christopher, Earl of Ashworth, who has family issues of her own. The solution to his problems—and redemption for Melanie—wind together toward destiny.
She nodded, holding tight to his jacket, “Thank you Christopher. I can sleep peacefully now.”
He pulled away and arched a brow at her, “And what is my reward?”
She giggled, “A smile…. and a kiss.” Her hands slid up to his neck as she reached up to kiss him. “Just one,” she warned.
“Just one,” he repeated lowering his head, shortening the trip and capturing her lips. He sighed at the contact, wrapping his arms around her frame and holding her tightly against him.
She tasted so good. Like honey full of hope and love. He could only imagine what the rest of her tasted like. At that thought, he pushed his tongue into her mouth deepening the kiss. She moaned, pulling his neck to her.
Just one… just one long one… He thought.
Christopher’s hand sank to her arse and pushed her up his knee to straddle his thick thigh. He rolled her hips against his thigh releasing a shivered gasp that quickly turned into a heated moan. She lifted her thigh to press against his arousal. Christopher’s member jumped at the contact, sending a fierce heat rushing through him. He lifted his thigh a little higher and pushed her parted thighs to his hip to greaten the contact.
She whimpered, rolling her hips again and pressing her thigh harder against him. Christopher felt his control leave him. He wanted her, then and there, damn the consequences!
As if to counter his resolve, he felt a wet chill rush down his head and down his back. Melanie screamed, pulling away.
Christopher stood, facing the heavy familiar chuckle, “Nicholas!” He hissed, pushing his wet hair back.
“Chris, five more seconds and you would have taken her in your grandmother’s studio.” He announced in a whispered laugh.
Nicholas then turned to Melanie and took her hand, kissing the back of it. “It’s a pleasure to finally meet you Miss Monroe.”
She pushed her wet hair off her face and curtsied, “It’s a pleasure to meet you too Lord Townson. I’ve heard so much about you, and I am relieved it was you, not the Countess who found us.”
Christopher turned to her with a betrayed look, “You are glad!”
She glanced at him with a familiar chastising look. He’d seen it on many well breed ladies—it annoyed him. “I know what taken means Lord Ashworth.”
