Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway with Maggie Robinson

Welcome to the Blog Tour:

First off, can I just say that Maggie Robinson has some seriously gorgeous and extremely hot covers? Yes she does! She is the author of the Courtesan Court Series and her alter ego is Margaret Rowe who writes deliciously wicked and sexier books than Maggie. But, Maggie has come to play today. Perhaps we shall have Margaret as a guest some other time. So let's give a great big Texas "Howdy" to Maggie.


Meet Maggie:
Maggie Robinson is a former teacher, library clerk and mother of four who woke up in the middle of the night, absolutely compelled to create the perfect man and use as many adverbs as possible doing so. A transplanted New Yorker, she lives with her not-quite perfect husband in Maine, where the cold winters are ideal for staying inside and writing hot historical romances.

2 Releases in One Month by Maggie Robinson
Hey, Kati! Thanks for having me here to talk about my latest books, Improper Gentlemen (August 2011) and Mistress by Marriage (September 2011). Yikes! Yep, that’s two books in two months, and I’m a little bleary-eyed. I’m not complaining, mind you—I’m thrilled that by the end of 2011, five of my books will have been released in the wild. I also write as Margaret Rowe, and she claims two of them.

Improper Gentlemen is an anthology with Diane Whiteside and Mia Marlowe, and my story in it, “To Match a Thief,” is a comic reunion story of two very atypical romance protagonists. True, my hero Sir Simon Grant has a knighthood, but he started as a thief on the streets of Edinburgh. Lucy Dellamar is a former milliner/now courtesan. Or is she? Throw in a cross-dressing earl to act as fairy godmother and presto—happy ending.

Slightly more serious is Mistress by Marriage, the third book in the Courtesan Court series . Lord Edward and Lady Caroline Christie have been married for six years and separated for five of them. They want a divorce, which was really, really hard to get c. 1820. So Caroline writes romance novels, where she kills off Edward in as many ingenious ways as she can in her books. But she doesn’t really want him dead, just in her bed more often. It was fun defrosting Edward and making him fall in love with his own wife.

One commenter can have their choice of book if you tell me how long you’re willing to wait for a book in a series. (My next—and last—Courtesan Court book comes out in April) Are you a fan of back-to-back releases, say, over three months? Do you save up a series to read it all at once? Are you a rebel and read books out of sequence? (You can with the Courtesan Court series—they’re standalones.) Inquiring writers want to know.

Mistress by Marriage:
Lady Caroline Christie has been separated from her husband for five years. Their brief marriage was a disaster everywhere but in the bedroom. Baron Edward Christie was the most proper widower in the ton - and marrying the scandalous beauty was his one impulsive act. Yet before he puts Caroline out of his life, he must get her out of his blood. And the more he learns about her, the less he wants to let her go.
Caroline was prepared to hear that her husband wanted to divorce her, spare them both the torture of passion they can neither tame nor escape. His plan is more wicked than any she's ever heard. Life as his wife is suffocating. But she cannot resist becoming her own husband's mistress...
