Hi Lexi! It’s so lovely to be here. Thanks so much for hosting me!
Lexi: ONE FINE DUKE sounds simple on the surface, but there’s so much more to Mina and Drew. She’s heading back to London for the Season, but her ulterior motives are to weasel her way into the family spy business. Though her plans take a surprising turn. Can you tell us about the situation with the Duke and his lips?
Well Lexi, Mina is a young lady with a plan. She knows exactly what she wants—to join the family spy business by marrying Lord Rafe Bentley, one of her uncle’s spies. There’s only one very large, very distracting problem: Rafe’s brother Drew, the Duke of Thorndon. He’s determined to stop Mina from making the biggest mistake of her life and marrying Rafe. He’ll use any means necessary to stop her…even if it includes kissing the girl himself ;-)
Lexi: It’s a good thing Mina’s stubborn, because Drew needs help tracking down the source of the kidnapping note, and he needs her more than he knows. Besides being strong-willed, what would you say your favorite trait of Mina’s is?
I love Mina’s fearlessness– she just throws herself headlong into every situation with exuberant abandon. Sometimes we get to live through our characters and Mina’s bravery was fun to write…and live.
Lexi: ONE FINE DUKE is a romance with a thrilling, spy component, but it’s also a story about trust, and trust is powerful. Can you name one thing that trust changes for Drew?
You’re exactly right! Trust is at the heart of this book and it’s on every page. Drew had such a traumatic experience in his childhood that he has difficulty trusting not only other people, but also his own reactions and emotions. Working side by side with Mina he discovers hidden rooms behind bookshelves and hidden chambers in his heart. Trusting Mina with his secrets teaches him that hiding all of his emotions away is no longer an option.
Lexi: Action, witty banter, and romance. What a perfect book! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog, Lenora! And a huge congrats for ONE FINE DUKE! Cheers!
