1. Do you have any phobias?
A few. Flying is probably the worst. I usually medicate heavily prior to boarding. Real medication, not just a vodka/tonic. I’m talking Valley of the Dolls caliber stuff. My oldest child flew to Florida with us last year and it was the best flight I’d ever had. Something about having my daughter with me made me feel confident in the flight.
2. Ever broken any bones?
There was an incident with some fingers, but nothing serious like a femur or anything.
3. Any weird things you do when you’re alone?
I read my books out loud in a british accent. Is that weird (said with accent)?
4. What is your favorite quote and why?
“And all men kill the things they love, by all let this be heard. A coward does it with a kiss, a brave man with a sword.” Oscar Wilde – The Ballad of Reading Gaol. It’s beautiful. It’s about a horrific subject, but there’s something so lyrical about the piece that the meaning doesn’t seem to matter.
5. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Vanilla. Which is so unexpected of me. I’m a pretty creative, wild person – yet I choose vanilla. Perhaps it’s a comfort thing?
Ambrosia Tisdale is the very picture of propriety and the epitome of what a respectable young lady should be. Haunted by a memory and compelled by her family, she pursues perfection to a fault.
The Earl of Bristol, Duncan Maddox, has returned to London after years of familial imposed exile. As the second son, he has led a life filled with frivolity, leisure, and a healthy dose of debauchery. Now his older brother has died, leaving the family’s flailing legacy in Duncan’s unwilling arms.
At the behest of his uncle, Duncan is advised to do the one thing that could provide instant fortune and respectability – he must marry. But there is only one prospect who meets the unique requirements to solve all the Earl’s problems – the lovely Miss Ambrosia Tisdale. But securing the prudent daughter of a Viscount’s hand proves to be more challenging than this scandal ridden second son of an Earl has bargained for.
With scandal, extortion, treachery, and even love itself threatening to keep him from his goal, will Duncan succeed in compromising Miss Tisdale?
