The Rogue Steals a Bride by Amelia Grey (Interview/Giveaway)



Fans of the Rogues’ Dynasty will both rejoice and cry. Why you may ask, let our guest today tell you. Welcome Amelia Grey!

AG: Thank you for having me today at Reading Between the Wines to talk about my new book The Rogue Steals A Bride.

Lexi: Your Rogue’s Dynasty is complete with your newest release, The Rogue Steals a Bride. This sixth book ties everything together nicely and will give your fans closure on the series. Were you excited or sad to finish writing it?

AG: Sad, sad, sad!  I hated saying good-bye to The Rogues’ Dynasty Series. The Rogue Steals A Bride is the sixth and final book in this Regency series and it’s been a great adventure. The first book was published in 2009 so I’ve been with some of these characters for over five years. In fact, the biggest challenge was to keep the continuing characters the same in all the books, but keep them fresh and believable in each book, too. When I started this series I knew each book had to stand alone. I knew I had to make each hero, each heroine, and each storyline exciting and different. But, I had to keep the same tone, pacing, and flavor to all the books. And, I have to tell you it’s been challenging at times but I love working to make it happen.  

But The Rogue Steals A Bride is special not only because it’s the Rogues’ Dynasty’s swan song, it’s also a very special book because it’s my twenty-fifth published book! So I’m celebrating and being sad at the same time. 



Lexi: As a good ending to the series you still bring plenty of emotion and angst. You have a way of writing your characters so they tug at our heartstrings. Looking back at the series is there one character in particular that stands out to you, one you became connected to above the others?

AG: It has to be Sir Randolph Gibson who had a major supporting role in all the books. He was fondly called Gibby in the first three books. He was a fun and devoted friend to the heroes of the first three books. But I had to make him the enemy of the heroes in the second three books because I needed a new hook. Not an enemy in that he was a bad person, but the brothers in the last three books had a good reason to not like Sir Randolph. So it was challenging yet fun to switch up the way the characters thought about him. He went from being the good guy to being the bad guy.


Lexi: The Rogue Steals a Bride will make you connect with Matson and Sophia, but there are also a couple sets of twins! If you are not a twin I am sure you have heard about the twin thing, where they feel the same emotions or are connected to one another on a deeper level. Or when strange things happen such as each twin buying the exact engagement ring for their fiances without talking to one another. You’re not a twin, do you know any twins to talk to for research?

AG: You’re right. I am not a twin and the truth is I’ve known very few twins in my life. I went to grade school with twin girls and there was a set of boys a couple of years older. But I don’t currently know any adult twins that are the same sex. I researched twins in historical times and found out there isn’t much written about them. The reason seems to be because it was very rare for both twins to live to be adults. As luck would have it, I had already set up my plot to have two sets of adult twins so I rushed in full speed ahead and had a wonderful time creating Sophia’s twin spinster aunts. I had read that it was common for one twin to the dominate one. I certainly didn’t want that for my twin heroes but it worked very well to have one of the aunts control the other.

Lexi: Research is done for this historical romance series. Any plans for your future projects?

AG:  I’m almost finished with the first book of my next series. We haven’t decided on a title yet, but I will tell you that I’ve started another trilogy and each book will have a sexy titled gentleman as the hero and a heroine who will let him know he has met his match. 

Lexi: Thank you for stopping by to share your newest release and complete series with us Amelia. We will be looking forward to what you come up with next!

AG: Thank you. I enjoy talking about my books. I would love to come back and join you again. In the meantime, I hope your readers will check out The Rogue Steals A Bride and the other five books in my Rogues’ Dynasty Series A Duke To Die For, followed by A Marquis To Marry, An Earl to Enchant, A Gentleman Never Tells, A Gentleman Says “I Do”,  and now, The Rogue Steals A Bride

It's always hard to say goodbye to a wonderful series but I know you'll bring us more great stories in the future. Love to read about rogues who are conquered by love...smile. Congrats on writing your 25th book.

I'm sad to leave the lives of the characters I've created, but excited about all the possibilities in my new books. Rogues can be devilish, delightful and daring. I'm looking forward to them all!

Hi, Amelia!

I am so looking forward to reading “The Rogue Steals a Bride.” The end of a series is bittersweet in that while it’s the end of a group of stories, the smart reader knows that this great author is working on something new to dazzle us. Cannot wait. Congratulations on your terrific successes and all the best!

Laurie G said...

Congrats on book #25! I have some catching up to do.
I'm looking forward to reading Matson and Sophie's love story.

Twins. I had two friends in HS Pam & Patty. Opposite personalities: one was witty, outgoing and a bit wild, the other more sedate, quiet, friendly and nice. They definitely were in tune to each others feelings and emotions.

Amelia said...

Thank you Erin.

Amelia said...

Laurie G. - I haven't known many twins but I understand they are usually opposite with one being more assertive.
