December Joyathon: Interview with Delilah Marvelle + Giveaway (US/CA)

What is there to say about Delilah Marvelle besides she's a fun time. Her books are sexy, her RomCon event (Mangasm) is sexy and fun, her book trailers are EPIC and she's finally finishing her School of Gallantry books. Seriously, we've been waiting for a long time.


Meet Delilah:
Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room. She is a two time Golden Heart finalist and winner of RT's Best Sensual Historical Romance of the Year. You can visit her at her website at www.DelilahMarvelle.com or her blog, which explores the naughtier side of history, at www.DelilahMarvelle.blogspot.com.

Jamie and Kati: Hi Delilah! Welcome back to Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance. Thanks for celebrating our December Joyathon with us :)

J&K: Who is Delilah Marvelle during the holidays? (author, gift giver, last minute shopper, baker)
Delilah Marvelle:
I am all of the above, except for the author bit. I stop being an author during the holidays because my family comes first.

J&K: What is your favorite thing about the holidays?
Being able to spend quality time with my family. All while eating cookies, lol.

J&K: Do you write more or less during the holidays?
I actually don’t write at all during the holidays. It’s all about my family and the writing takes a back seat.

J&K: Which of your heroes would you go on a sleigh ride with? (with permission from the heroine of course)
Snort. Which hero? That’s like asking which chocolate I like. I like it allll. But I’d have to say Lord Atwood from FOREVER A LORD. Because if you’re going to go out into the snow in a sleigh ride (which aren’t really known for being safe), you might as well do it with a guy who can hold on to you. (see Book Trailer)
 J&K: Which 5 authors (dead or alive) would you invite for a holiday feast?
It would be the feast of the dead, sadly, because I’d only invite all the dead people. Charles Dickens, Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, Voltaire, and Hans Christian Anderson.

J&K: What holiday movie is more likely to be playing in your house: Elf, A Christmas Story, or Diehard?
Elf. All the way.

J&K: What are you excited about for 2013?
DM: That I’ll be self-publishing and finishing the School of Gallantry series! I’ve waited over three years to write these suckers, and I’m super excited to not only get back to the humor and passion of the series but to sit down with all the characters again. So I’m excited to say Lady of Pleasure, book 3 in the School of Gallantry series will be coming out March 2013!

Author’s choice: If money wasn’t an object, what would YOU want for Christmas?


He's a fighter, not a lover. But that's about to change... 

Lady Imogene Norwood lived a sheltered life of quiet respectability and routine...until she debuts at her first Season. There she meets the wild and broken Lord Atwood among London’s elite. And the very shy English rose suddenly realizes that a little chaos might just be what her heart desires. ​

Lord Nathaniel James Atwood doesn’t believe true love exists. Since scandal tore him away from his family at an early age, he has spent his life fighting for what he wants. That attitude made him a rising star in bare-knuckle boxing, and now leads him back to London to reclaim the life that was stolen from him. But upon meeting the innocent Imogene, his beliefs are trounced…as guarding his heart against her proves to be the fight of his life.
