Hi Readers, If there is one book I would ask you to read this month it would be BENEATH IT ALL by Tori Madison. I loved this book. I learned from this book. I am a better woman for reading this book. Because I was amazed by this book I reached out to Tori Madison and asked her to be a guest on my blog today. Please welcome the fabulous Tori Madison to the blog!

Beneath It AllRRG: I loved the courage and strength Victoria has in Beneath it All. Did you find you had the same strength and courage during your experience with breast cancer?

TM: I wasn’t as strong as Victoria, or at least I didn’t feel that way. I tried to put on a brave face because I had two small children watching me go through it all. We explained that I had an “owwie” and that I would have to take “silly” medicine that would make me sick and lose my hair. They had no clue what was happening, but now they understand.
Hindsight, I could have been stronger, but I always have high expectations for myself.

TM3RRG: Do you have an amazing group of friends like Victoria has?

TM:I have a pretty awesome group of friends and the characters in the book definitely share a mixture of their personalities and traits. They all joke with me that we need to plan a spa day (which will happen) and a cabana boy night (pretty sure our spouses would have issues this this). A few of them stood by my side during my battle with breast cancer, while others I met after the fact. Regardless of when they came into my life, they are an important part of it now.

RRG: As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

TM: I wanted to be an interior designer. No joke. I actually went to school for it, but got bored and transferred out. I never had any big dreams other than to be a princess, of course.

RRG:What song can you not get out of your head?

TM: Running Around In My Dreams by Tyrone Wells. I just wrote an amazing part of book two listening to it on repeat.

TM PIcRRG: What was the last movie you saw?

TM: The Green Mile and I was bawling like a baby. I always do. I’m a very emotional person and when something grips my heart it takes over.

RRG: What do you like to read?

TM: I’m open to pretty much anything, but the whole paranormal, zombie, dystopian thing is not for me. I don’t shock easily when it comes to books, but shy away from books with domestic and extreme violence toward women.

Interview & Giveaway with Julie Johnstone

Readers, Today I have the fabulous Julie Johnstone on the blog! Her new book My Fair Duchess has been released. Please enter to win a free copy of My Fair Duchess. Please welcome Julie!

RRG: What is the first romance novel you ever read?
JJ: Ransom by Julie Garwood.

RRG: Would you want to live in the time you write about? What would you love? Hate?
JJ: I would like to go back to the past and live in the time I write about for a bit, but not permanently. I think it would be fun to immerse myself in the Regency time period and really learn about life, plus I would die to where those gowns!! I’m assuming I’ll be rich, of course! However, I wouldn’t want to stay because their life spans were so much shorter than our’s today! Plus medicine, childbirth, etc. is just not what it is today.

RRG: Who is your favorite romance duo?
JJ: I have to say to this day my favorite hero and heroine are still Whitney and Clayton from Whitney My Love.

RRG: How do you come up with your character’s names?
JJ: Oh, that’s painstaking!!! I have a list of common Regency names that I use along with several research sites and from there I narrow, narrow and narrow some more.

Rapid Fire Round
Heels or flip flops? To go out – heels definitely. Day to day – flip flops.
The Beach or The Mountains? Beach in the summer. Mountains in the fall.
American hottie or sexy Brit? Sexy Brit, of course!!!
Sugar or Salty Snacks? Salty!

Thank You, Julie!!

My Fair DuchessAbout My Fair Duchess
After years of playing the rake to hide a dark family secret, the Duke of Aversley feels tainted beyond redemption and cynical beyond repair. Never does he imagine hope will come in the form of a quirky, quick-witted lady determined to win the heart of another gentleman.

Thanks to a painfully awkward past, Lady Amelia De Vere long ago relinquished the notion she was a flower that had yet to blossom. But when her family faces financial ruin and the man she has always loved is on the verge of marrying another, she’ll try anything to transform herself to capture her childhood love and save her family―including agreeing to participate in a bet between her brother and the notorious, dangerously handsome Duke Of Aversley.

Bound by the bet, Amelia and Aversley discover unexpected understanding and passion beyond their wildest dreams, if only they can let go of their pride, put trust in each other and chance losing their hearts.
