Q&A with Darcy Burke

What’s your favorite historical romance? Sooo many to choose from. Classic: Seaflame by Valerie Vayle (I was convinced I could write it into a screenplay when I was in high school), “Modern:” Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas and The Serpent Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt

What is the first romance novel you ever read? Kathleen Woodiwiss’s Ashes in the Wind

Would you want to live in the time you write about? What would you love? Hate? No, I don’t think I’d like to live there. I used to, but then I had children. I’m not interested in nineteenth century childbirth, thank you! But I do think I’d love to spend some time during those simpler days, when receiving a letter and writing a response was a highlight of your day.

If given the choice between a duke, a rogue, or an alpha hero, which would you choose? An alpha, roguish duke of course!

What tempts you? (Chocolate, caviar, long walks on the beach ...) My family (not terribly sexy, but true!), salted dark chocolate caramels, a really good margarita

Rapid fire round:
Designer purses or Target special? I’ve tried to buy designer purses and never end up liking them!
Heels or flip flops? Flip flops
Rich or famous? Rich, please
American hottie or sexy Brit? Sexy Brit!
Where’s your happy place? Anywhere with my family (especially Denmark with my cousins), Disneyland, and Labor Day Weekend at the Gorge with my hubby and the Dave Matthews Band

Excerpt from SCOUNDREL EVER AFTER:
In repose, Mr. Locke looked younger. His ink-dark hair was thick and in need of a trim. His beard was longer still, and Audrey was surprised to find she still found it attractive. Despite the growth of hair, his chin was squared and strong. He might look youthful in sleep, but he also exuded a power and magnetism that was undeniable. At least to her.

Mr. Locke’s eyes shot open and he was suddenly on top of her. He’d rolled like quicksilver, pinning her to the mattress.

She gasped -- both with surprise and with the shock of his masculine body pressed atop hers. He was hard and muscular, and for the first time in her life she felt dainty and impossibly feminine.
His gray eyes focused on her, but she couldn’t immediately discern what he was thinking. Then his brow arched and he drawled, “Good morning” without sounding the least bit apologetic.

About Emma Locke:

Emma Locke is a writer and engineer living in the Pacific Northwest, where she loves hiking with her dog, hot yoga and riding out the annual 330 days of rain. Hiking and yoga give her time to plot, the lack of sun makes for perfect writing weather, and as for her day job, the dichotomy seems to work: her analytic side ensures her passionate, satisfying love stories don't mulch under her bed, and her author side forces her to keep writing more.

About Gina Danna:

Gina has spent the better part of her life reading. History has been her love and she spent numerous hours devouring historical romance stories, dreaming of writing one of her own. Years later, after receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees in History, writing academic research papers and writing for museum programs and events, she finally found the time to write her own stories of historical romantic fiction.

Now, under the supervision of her three dogs and three cats, she writes amid a library of research books, with her only true break away is to spend time with her other life long dream -- her Arabian horse -- with him, her muse can play.
