Casting Call with Maggie Robinson + Giveaway


Maggie Robinson stopped by and shared her back to back releases with us last year. Her books feature strong heroines, sexy heroes and whole lot of steamy, sizzling chemistry. Not only does Maggie write sexy historical romances but her sexier alter ego, Margaret Rowe, does as well. Like, hot. Scorch the pages, hot. But today, Maggie is here to play.

WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG 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.

I usually don’t use “famous people” when I dream up my characters, although as I wrote Mistress by Marriage I pictured Edward as a much better-looking Abraham Lincoln, LOL. He’s supposed to be rangy and tall and angular, a complete contrast to his wife Caro’s plump curves. He’s older, too, with a bit of distinguished gray in his temples, compared to Caro’s wild riot of red hair. I think Dermot Mulroney works beautifully as strict Edward, and saucy Isla Fisher is the perfect Caroline. If she can tame Borat, surely she’ll work her magic on Edward!


Romance Junkies gave Mistress by Marriage 5 Blue Ribbons and said: "A sizzling hot read, MISTRESS BY MARRIAGE, the third book in phenomenal author Maggie Robinson’s COURTESAN COURT trilogy, is a steamy, witty historical romance. A definite keeper!” The book was picked as a 2011 Favorite Romance by Seductive Musings and was the September Smart Bitches Trashy Books Book Club choice!

MISTRESS BY MARRIAGE:
Genre: Historical
Length: 352 pages
Publisher: Kensington Brava (August 30,2011)

Too late for cold feet
Baron Edward Christie prided himself on his reputation for even temperament and reserve. That was before he met Caroline Parker. Wedding a scandalous beauty by special license days after they met did not inspire respect for his sangfroid. Moving her to a notorious lovebirds’ nest as punishment for her flighty nature was perhaps also a blow. And of course talk has gotten out of his irresistible clandestine visits. Christie must put his wife aside—if only he can get her out of his blood first.

Too hot to refuse
Caroline Parker was prepared to hear the worst: that her husband had determined to divorce her, spare them both the torture of passion they can neither tame nor escape. But his plan is wickeder than any she’s ever heard. Life as his wife is suffocating. But she cannot resist becoming her own husband’s mistress…
