Welcome Author Becky Lower

        Please Welcome: Author Becky Lower

     Banking on Temperance: Book Three of the Cotillion Ball Series

 

Blurb:

Banking On Temperance—Book 3 in the Cotillion Ball Series

 

Basil Fitzpatrick was born into a life of privilege. In 1856, at 23 years of age, he is the owner of the St. Louis branch of the family banking business. He has his pick of the ladies and life by the horns. Temperance Jones and her family are far from privileged. Her father is a circuit-riding preacher from Pennsylvania. But the rumblings of a war between the North and the South force the preacher to move his family to Oregon rather than to take up arms against his fellow man. However, hardship and sickness have slowed their pace, and they are forced to spend the winter in St. Louis, waiting for the next wagon trains to leave in the spring.

 

Basil is drawn to the large family the moment they roll into town, partly because they remind him of his own big family in New York. But also because of the eldest daughter, Temperance. She is a tiny, no-nonsense spitfire who is bent on fulfilling her father’s wish to get the family safely to Oregon. Basil is only interested in finding a mistress, not a wife. He knows if he allows Temperance into his heart, he is accepting the obligation of her entire family and their quest to settle in Oregon. He wants Temperance like he has wanted no other, but the burden of her family may be too much for him. And he can’t have one without the other.

 

Good morning Becky, so glad you made some time to swing by. So, let’s start this right off. You have a new book out. What’s it called?

 

Becky: Banking On Temperance, which is the third book in the Cotillion Ball Series.

 

What’s it about?

 

Becky: It’s an historical romance, about one of the Fitzpatrick brothers, Basil. He’s the branch manager of his father’s bank in St. Louis, and has been handed a life of privilege. He’s not looking for marriage, only a good time. But Temperance Jones and her family walk into his bank and upset all of his plans.

 

How did you come up with the idea?

 

Becky: Basil and St. Louis played a secondary role in the first novel in this series. One of my early readers told me she hoped I’d write about him, since he needed a strong woman to straighten out his uptight ass. How could I resist?

 

What makes a perfect read for you?

 

Becky: I love stories that have strong characters, and I want to see a relationship develop. It doesn’t need to be a long build-up, but I want something. No sex in the first five minutes kind of thing. And I love the second chance stories.

 

Favorite or most wished place to write?

 

Becky: Now that it’s almost summer, I move my writing to the screened-in porch.  Winters, I’m inside in my office. This is the first house I’ve had that I could have an office in.

 

What’s the one word you use that makes you blush when using? Any? Some authors have a word or giggle phrase that causes them to ponder using.

 

Becky: I really can’t think of any. I recently used the word “fornicate” in a contemporary that I’m working on, but it doesn’t make me blush. I love the word.

 

Is it in the book?

 

Becky: No, not in Banking On Temperance.

 

Anything you want to tell us about the book?

 

Becky: This is the first book I’ve written with a male in the lead role. I had a great deal of fun writing it because it was so different for me to crawl into a guy’s head for a while.

 

Okay-Speed Round, old school style. Just for shits and giggles.

 

1st crush-Delbert, when I was in kindergarten

1st Kiss-I was a late bloomer. I was 19, and working at a root beer stand for the summer. I think he just wanted free root beer.

Biggest blooper to date– (C’mon, we all had one) None that I’m willing to claim in public

Celebrity Crush-Irish golfer Graeme McDowell (this week, anyway)

True Blood or Vampire Diaries-True Blood. Hate the vamps

Angels or Demons-Angels

 

Alright–now that we’ve had a peek of Becky Lower’s new release as well as peek inside the mind of Becky herself, how about a giveaway.

Becky Lower is giving away ONE ARC (ebook only) to one commenter who answers the below question. Contest open until 6/5/13

 

Becky’s Question– Where does this book take place?

Welcome Daryl Devore-Author Carpi’s Fate

                 Please Welcome: Daryl Devore

                   

Blurb: What’s a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?

Corporate business woman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. Once a shocking, mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.

Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbors the irrepressible need to be with the woman he’s desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents – a fantasy.

Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?

 

Good morning Daryl, so glad you made some time to swing by. So, let’s start this right off. You have a new release. What’s it called?

 

Daryl: Capri’s Fate

What’s it about?

Daryl: Capri goes to a sex toy convention and here’s a mysterious voice. The voice follows her home and the fun begins. By the end of the book, Capri has ended up in Indonesia, met a dragon, got swept away by a tsunami and was charged with corporate espionage.

How did you come up with the idea?

Daryl: Oh I don’t come up with the ideas. My character’s do.

What makes a perfect read for you?

Daryl: A British murder mystery. One full of right proper dialogue and wonderful descriptions and fleshed-out characters.

Favorite or most wished place to write?

Daryl: In a hammock, stretched out between to palm trees on a secluded beach, next to the ocean with fresh sea breeze blowing and hot cabana boys bringing me cold Diet cokes and dark chocolates.

What’s the one word you use that makes you blush when using? Any? Some authors have a word or giggle phrase that causes them to ponder using.

Daryl: I think I’m over it. I’ve named every genital I know of. But if you truly want a giggle word – testicle. It’s tickles the mouth when you say it.

Is it in the book?

Daryl: Hmmm – don’t think so. I’d have to do a word search to find out. Yes it is! Twice.

Anything you want to tell us about the book?

Daryl: Capri is unique. Editor said – don’t do it. I did it anyway. If it works, it works. If it doesn’t, hey I tried. Sometimes you gotta get out of the box and try something.

Okay-Speed Round, old school style. Just for shits and giggles.

1st crush?


Daryl-Don’t even know his name. Grade 13 student when I was in grade 9. I knew where is locker was, but not his name. (High school in Ontario used to go from gr 9 to 13. We don’t use names like Freshman, Sophmore.)

1st Kiss?


Daryl-Wayne.

Biggest blooper to date?(C’mon, we all had one)


Daryl-Ask me that in a year and I’ll tell you cause it’s a really good one.

Celebrity Crush?


Daryl-Not really a crush, but at the moment kinda liking any movie Daniel Craig is in.

True Blood or Vampire Diaries?


Daryl- Neither – my favourite vampire is Angel

Angels or Demons?


Daryl-in true Canadian fence-sitting style – both!
 

Alright–now that we’ve had a peek inside the mind of Daryl, how about a peek inside Capri’s Fate.

ExcerptNeeding a cup of coffee to slap awake my drowsy brain cells, I hopped off the bed and padded toward the bedroom door. As I reached for the doorknob, I paused and turned my head. My most formal—meaning stupidly expensive designed by a top New York fashionista—evening gown was resting on the chair in the corner. I purchased it the previous year to wear to the Governor’s Ball and haven’t worn it since.

As I lifted it off the chair, to hang it back in my closet, a folded paper fluttered down. I caught it, unfolded it and read—Thall requests the honor of your presence at dinner. R.S.V.P.

I tossed the paper onto my dresser. “Sorry, can’t do dinner. I have work to do. I didn’t work my ass off in college then fight my way up the corporate ladder to lose my job because of a voice.” I grabbed the doorknob, twisted and pulled. The door didn’t budge. “Stupid door.” I tried again. “Did you lock me in my room?”

There was no reply. I kicked the door. Remember I said I needed coffee to wake up sleeping brain cells? Well, the cells that were asleep were obviously the ones that would have said kicking the door was a dumb thing to do.

Hobbling back to my bed, I sat on the edge and checked for broken toes. The paper floated across the room and landed beside me. I picked it up and waved it randomly about in the air. “So this really isn’t a cute invite, but more of a decree. You know, By Royal Command.

“Is that a yes?” His voice swirled around me like a gust of a hot summer breeze.

“Guess it has to be if I want coffee.”

The paper poofed into oblivion and a steaming cup of java settled onto my night table. “Skim milk?”

“Yes.”

“Hint of cinnamon?”

“Yes.”

“Okay, you win.” I picked up the mug and sipped brewed Columbian heaven.

After dressing, putting on my makeup and weaving my hair in a quick French braid, I walked through my kitchen and into my dining room. Except…it wasn’t my dining room.

I paused. As far as I could tell, in the past twenty-four hours, I had spoken with an invisible voice that says it is one of the Fates, purchased a bunch of sex toys, which I would never, ever do. What would mother say! And had somehow flown to a tropical isle where I had the most luxurious massage in a hut on a beach, and then had the most incredible sexual experience ever in the whole length of recorded human existence. And still, here I was a bit surprised to find my dining room had been replaced with a sultan’s tent.

Really? How cliché can you get?

Two flutes of champagne filled with sparkling bubbly rested on what used to be my dining room table. Now, it was a banquet table with a centerpiece that must have emptied the local florist shop. At this end of the table, on a snow white tablecloth rested gleaming gold dishes and sparkling crystal wine goblets. Four forks rested beside each plate. Four? I can figure out two, salad and dinner. Only two chairs were present. Guess we weren’t having company.

Mounds of bright pillows lay scattered about in little sitting nooks. The ceiling was covered in brilliant hues of Iris purple, Orchid blue, Rose red and Tulip yellow silk swathes, stretching from the center out to the wall then draping to the floor.

The room was softly lit, casting a romantic atmosphere. A bit creepy as there was no source of the light. No candles. No lamps. Just light that increased or faded as I wandered about.

A breeze tickled the back of my neck. I turned.

He appeared. He didn’t enter. He just appeared dressed in a black tux. Tall, with smiling eyes and a sexy grin. How did he know? The rule is, if you can’t get a man in a uniform, put him in a tux—a black tux with a bow tie—then rip it off of him. Okay, maybe my hormones are still on edge.
