After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding.  But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.
A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none.  However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.  Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

Jenna Jaxon is a multi-published author of historical  and contemporary romance. She is currently finishing revisions to  her fifth full length novel, To Woo A Wicked Widow, set in Regency England and the first book in her five part series, The Widow’s Club.
Only Marriage Will Do, second book in her Georgian  House of Pleasure series is with the editor. Her medieval trilogy, Time Enough to Love, is being published by Rising Phoenix Publications. Book 1, Betrothal is currently available.  Book 2, Betrayal, will be available at the end of January.
Jenna has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager.  A romantic herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise.  She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories. She lives in Virginia with her family and a small menagerie of pets.  When not reading or writing, she indulges her passion for the theatre, working with local theatres as a director.  She often feels she is directing her characters on their own private stage.
She has equated her writing to an addiction to chocolate because once she starts she just can’t stop.

Jenna Jaxon Interview

What book are you currently reading?  I am currently reading Effie’s Outlaw by Karen Lopp.  It’s an historical western with a feisty heroine and a gruff outlaw hero.  Lots of fun to read at night!

What’s the strangest (neatest, coolest, etc) thing you’ve ever done?  I had lunch at 95 Metres, the restaurant located 95 meters above ground in the Eiffel Tower with my husband on our 10th anniversary.

What is one place in the world you’d love to visit which you haven’t already been?  India.  I read M.M. Kaye’s wonderful historical novels The Far Pavilions and The Shadow of the Moon and have wanted to see that part of the world ever since.

 Who are some of your favorite authors? Wow.  I have to categorize that.  For Horror, Stephen King, hands down.  Patricia Cornwell and John Grisham for suspense.  For romance, the list is long.  Jo Beverley, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Mary Balogh, Diana Gabaldon, Lisa Kelypas, Loretta Chase, Samantha James, Courtney Milan.

What are you currently working on, or what’s on the horizon?  After Betrayal, I’m finishing up the serial novel, Time Enough to Love, with the third novella, Beleaguered.  Then I’m revising my Victorian romance As Long As You’re Mine for submission and finishing up a Regency romance, To Woo A Wicked Widow.
