Interview with Tracy Anne Warren

Posted March 2, 2016 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Featured Authors, Interviews / 5 Comments


Welcome to UTC! First off let’s get to know you a little better. Who is Tracy Anne Warren? Tell us five interesting things about yourself that readers wouldn’t know!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I’m so pleased to be here with all the wonderful readers at UTC. As for a few interesting things about me, here we go…

– Purple is my favorite color.
– My mother tells me that my first spoken word was “kitty.”
– I graduated with honors from The Ohio State University with a BA degree in history.
– I love Vermont.
– Some of my favorite books are from the Harry Potter series.

You write The Rakes of Cavendish Square series. Can you tell us a bit about the series?

I sure can. The Rakes of Cavendish Square novels are a continuation of my earlier Byrons of Braebourne series. The novels are about the three youngest Byrons––Leo, Lawrence and Esme. The rakes in question are twin brothers, Leo and Lawrence, and their less-than-proper neighbor, Gabriel, Lord Northcote. They all revel in the delights that come with seeking out pleasure regardless of their tarnished reputations. The books let the reader experience the highs and lows that each of the youngest Byrons experience on the road to real love and happiness.

HAPPILY BEDDED BLISS is book two in the series. Now I have to say that I love the premise of this story. Where did you get the inspiration for Lady Esme Byron and her drawings?

Throughout the original Byrons of Braebourne series, Esme was always drawing something. Once I decided to write a book for her, I immediately wondered what would happen if she drew the wrong thing – in this case, a gorgeous naked man that she just happens to find sleeping next to a secluded country lake.

Describe Gabriel for us. What do you hope readers will like about his character?

Gabriel is a classic, charismatic alpha male; a bad boy, Regency style. He’s deliciously seductive, the kind of man who could tempt even the most chaste woman into his bed. Hopefully, readers will appreciate the reasons for his wild ways, and that despite his notorious reputation, he is, at heart, an honorable man, who secretly wants nothing more than to love and be loved by Esme.

Was there a scene in this book that was the hardest for you to write? And how did you overcome that?

To paraphrase Nora Roberts, the hardest part of any book to write is the beginning, the middle and the end. The only way to overcome the challenges in writing is to keep writing. Every day.

What was is about historical romance that drew you in?

Since I first started reading for pleasure, I always loved reading Regency romances. Also, my major in college was history, so selecting Regency England as the backdrop for my historical romance novels was a natural step.

There is something very special about this time period with its careful manners and elegant style, the glamour of the Ton and the gritty heroism of the Peninsular Wars. For me, the Regency has an almost modern sophistication while still retaining all the gentle grace and slower style of the old world. Plus, the clothes are wonderful, especially the mens’. Who doesn’t love a guy in a tailcoat and breeches with a sexy chapeau bras tucked beneath his arm?

What book have you read recently that you loved and would recommend?

I recently finished re-reading Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy. I enjoy her creativity and writing and would recommend these books to anyone who likes a mix of romance and magic.

What can you tell us about the next book in the series?

The last book in the Rakes of Cavendish Square trilogy is Lord Lawrence Byron’s story. His profession as a barrister brings a very special woman, with an unusual secret, to his notice and into his life. Complications and seduction will ensue along the way.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing with us today!

When Lady Esme Byron happens upon a gorgeous naked man sleeping beside a secluded country lake, she can’t resist the impulse to sketch him. But when her highly improper drawing is mistakenly revealed at a party, she finds her once-pristine reputation in tatters.

Gabriel, Lord Northcote, may be a notorious rakehell, but he is still stunned to find himself accused of despoiling a duke’s sister—especially since he's never set eyes on her. When Esme’s six irate brothers demand a hurried trip down the aisle, he has no choice but to comply. He thinks he can forget about his inconvenient bride but Esme Byron is no ordinary woman and Gabriel is about to learn just how unforgettable she can be.
