About Lady of Seduction

It’s a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually-sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn’t expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands–and with it, her heart.

Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered, nor will he ever forgive himself for placing her in harm’s way. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland–or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he ever let her go?

RISK THE PASSION Burned by betrayal, demon assassin Iskander won’t get too close to anyone.

Under his protection, she will be drawn irresistibly into his life and learn about her own mysterious powers. And not a moment too soon. The mage haunting her isn’t acting alone-and he won’t rest until he destroys both Paisley and Iskander.

Your Dangerous Lady Seduction Pleasure is the BEST book I ever read. It has everything. Ladies. Danger. Seduction, Pleasure. Hot guys. TEN stars. No, a HUNDRED stars! A bazillion stars! Fictional novels just don’t get any better than this. Jewel McKeeCabe is a genius.

Tell me about your book

Amanda: Lady of Seduction is the third (and last!) of my Daughters of Erin series, and I’m so sorry to say good-bye to these characters! Though I like to imagine they are off living their HEAs and having lots more adventures. It’s set in 1803, and is (possibly) my favorite of the three stories. Caroline is my favorite sort of heroine (bookish, outwardly quiet and sensible, but adventurous and brave when she needs to be), and Grant is my favorite sort of hero, the villain-turned-hero (he was one of the bad guys in Duchess of Sin), scarred, dark and brooding, lives in a crumbling old castle (I blame my love of the Bronte novels).

It also has a windswept Irish island with ancient ruins and cliffs, and a “road romance” as Caroline and Grant have to make a run to Dublin with all sorts of danger chasing them. (There’s also a medieval manuscript that contains dangerous secrets). I had so much fun writing this book!

Carolyn: My Dangerous Pleasure is book 4 of my My Immortals paranormal series. The hero is Iskander, a demon and former blood-twin who entertains a different woman just about every night because he’s still learning how to live alone. Paisley Nichols is his tenant. She’s living her dream of owning her own bakery. To keep costs down, she rents a tiny apartment above her landlord’s garage. She doesn’t know her smoking hot landlord isn’t human. Then she finds out and things get hot.

Jewel MckeeCabe: My Dangerous Lady Seduction Pleasure is a book for the times. For all times. A sweeping saga that will bring you to tears while making you laugh. There are no clowns in this story.

What’s next?

Amanda: My Amanda McCabe self has a Harlequin Historical Undone short story out in August (Unlacing the Lady in Waiting), but you’ll have to wait until May 2012 for another full-length book! Laurel will have a new series, The Scandalous St. Claires, which will start in 2012 with book one, One Naughty Night. It’s a bit of a change, since this series is set in Victorian London and centers around an underworld family of gaming club owners, actors, and naughty bookstore owners. There will be great clothes, too….

Carolyn: I have two historicals slotted for 2012, Not Wicked Enough and Not Proper Enough. The two books are loosely linked by a locket reputed to have magical powers. In Not Wicked Enough Lily Wellstone comes to the rescue of her best friend and ends up falling in love with her friend’s brother. You can read Chapter 1 here. (Unedited and subject to update!)

Later this year, I expect to get the last of my reverted backlist titles online and available once again; my Crimson City novel, A Darker Crimson and my Crimson City novella, DX, as well as the very first book I wrote, a Georgian-set historical titled Passion’s Song.

Jewel MckeeCabe: In 2012, I will win several literary prizes for novels of staggering genius. In 2013, watch for six major motion pictures based on my fictional novels.

Who is your favorite queen of all time? Ever.

Amanda: LOL! Only one??? But there are so many. Catherine de Medici, Marie Antoinette, Elizabeth I, Victoria. I think I would have to go with Anne Boleyn, though. Beautiful, intelligent, strong-willed, brave, fiery-tempered and outspoken–yeah, I’m definitely a fan.

Carolyn: Queen Latifah. Because Amanda stole all the dead ones I like.

Jewel MckeeCabe: Uh, Queen is a band and there can be only one. Unless it’s me. I am queen of the fiction novel. Ask anybody.

If someone said you could live in any time period but your decision had to be based SOLELY on the clothes, what time period would you choose and why?

Amanda: Hmmm. For looks–the mid-18th century. I am crazy about those rich fabrics, big skirts and tight waistlines, ruffles and lace and ribbons. But for comfort–the Regency. Light corsets, high waists, thin fabrics, much better. But that’s two, isn’t it? Can I go with the 1920s, too?

Carolyn: Imperial Rome, because I really have a thing for Centurions and Legionnaires. Also, I would like to point out that Amanda is cheating with her answers.

Jewel MckeeCabe: Honey, I invent fashion. Everyone else just follows.

For this question, assume you would have all the necessary talent, skills and aptitude: If you weren’t a writer (PRETEND!) what would you be instead? In other words, non-writing dream job?

Amanda: When I was a kid I told everyone I wanted to be an opera singer, but I can’t actually sing so that was out. Then I thought I might like to be an actress, and did school and community theater. I had so much fun with it! So I would be an actress, but a stage actress not a movie actress. Or maybe a race car driver.

Carolyn: I’d want to be an artist, I think. Or else a physician. I really always wanted to be a singer, but I can’t sing and Amanda stole that answer, too.

Jewel McKeeCabe: I would be the world’s best number guesser. Then I would guess a couple of mega-winning lottery tickets and I wouldn’t need a job. You two are kind of slow, aren’t you?

    What a fun post, I loved it. I loved the “fact” that Jewel MckeeCabe will, In 2012, win several literary prizes for novels of staggering genius.
    My favorite queen has always been Elizabeth I, I think she was so extraordinary to hold her crown in an age where men ruled the world.

  2. Diane Gaston says:

    You know, I almost deleted this whole blog because of that interloper, Jewel MckeeCabe (obviously a made up name. Come On.)

    But I just could not delete all this exciting information about bad boy heroes and brave heroines. Great books, ladies, and many more to come.

  3. Carolyn says:

    Here’s a Jewel MckeeCabe fact: She can kick Chuck Norris’s @ss.

    True fact.

  4. Kirsten says:

    “There are no clowns in this story.” – Good! I hate clowns 🙂

    These books sound great. My favorite Queen is the late Victoria (of Victorian England, duh…)
    Her love story (proof of 9 kids) is something that intruiges me still. She also had a passion for art drew fun pictures of her family.

  5. CrystalGB says:

    Great post. Your new releases sound good. My favorite queen is Elizabeth I.

  6. Cathy P says:

    In 2012 win several literary prizes for novels of staggering genious and in 2013 watch for 6 movies about her novels. I also liked the fact that she is her favorite queen (of fiction novel – ask anyone).

    I have 2 favorite queens – Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria. Both of them were very strong and admirable women.

  7. Jeanne M says:

    I can’t wait to read Lady of Seduction. I love Laurel’s books and can’t wait to find out how Grant turns from villiam to hero! His character really got my attention when I read Duchess of Sin which was a not to be put down read.

    Laurel always does such a terrific job in developing her characters and I love the depth she gives them.

    Anyone who hasn’t read one of Laurel’s book should run not walk tot he nearest bookstore to pick one up. They’ll never wnat to miss her releases again!

  8. Two more for the TBR Tower! Great stuff, ladies and wonderfully witty post.

    My favorite queens ?

    Queen Boadicea of the Iceni. Love any woman who can give the Romans a run for their money.

    Queen Jezebel of Israel (Princess of Phoenicea)and wife of King Ahab. This much maligned woman was, when the dust settles, an outspoken woman when women were not allowed to speak, a shrewd politician, a powerful woman, loyal to her husband and went to her death with style.

  9. Jane George says:

    Freddy Mercury.

    Seriously, congrats to both of you!!!!

  10. Artemis says:

    My favorite Queen would be Queen Elizabeth I. During her reign, the country had a great deal of stability. The country had it’s Golden Age.

    More wonderful tomes to add to the towering TBR!

  11. “Here’s a Jewel MckeeCabe fact: She can kick Chuck Norris’s @ss”

    And sings at the Met. And just won the Indy 500.

  12. Thanks so much, Jeanne M!! I hope you like what happens with Grant in this story. I really loved him. 🙂

  13. librarypat says:

    Thanks for an enjoyable post. Thought we were going to have to call for a referee a time or two.

    I kind of like the Band Queen answer. The soundtrack for A KNIGHT’S TALE was perfect. The songs certainly were contemporary and not medieval but they fit the movie perfectly.

    For a female queen, it would be Queen Victoria.

    Favorite “fact” – Amanda really doesn’t know what she would want to be if not a writer.

    I like the sound of both books. Now that all the DAUGHTERS OF ERIN are out, I’ll read them. I like the sound of this one best. I have Carolyn Jewel’s IMMORTAL ASSASSIN on my TBR shelf and will put MY DANGEROUS PLEASURE up there with it and hopefully get to them both soon.

    Hope everyone has had a great weekend.

  14. “The songs certainly were contemporary and not medieval but they fit the movie perfectly.”

    Librarypat, I enjoyed this about “Marie Antoinette” as well!

    And it’s true–I have no idea what I would do if I wasn’t writing. 🙂

  15. Maureen says:

    Congratulations on your new books! I think Jewel McKee Cabe is a fascinating author who is also quite modest.

  16. Margay says:

    I’m sad to say I don’t have a favorite queen.

  17. Hee! You guys made my day. And both releases (not Jewel MckeeCabe’s, sadly) are winging their way to my house RIGHT NOW.
    Yay!

  18. limecello says:

    Fun yet little known Jewel McKeeCabe fact… she can shoot rainbows from her hands. She doesn’t do it often though, because she doesn’t have to to maintain her utter awesomeness.

  19. Paulita says:

    My favorite queen is Eleanor of Aquitaine. My daughter has traced our heritage to her, so I can channel my inner queen. She reigned defying the help of men, in spite of being imprisoned by her husband for nearly 20 years. Feminine power emobodied by Eleanor.

  20. Ren says:

    Can I join Jewel in being the world’s second best number guesser? Also “There are no clowns in this story.” Hilarious.

    My favorite historical queen is Mary Queen of Scots. Does Kate Middleton count as a future queen? I’m loving her cheap and cheerful fashion style.

  21. Rosie Hong says:

    My favorite queen would probably be Elizabeth I. She was strong, intelligent, and successful in her own right – the embodiment of girl power! 😛

  22. Hello there, You have done a great job. I’ll definitely
    digg it and personally suggest to my friends. I
    am sure they will be benefited from this web site.
