To Entice an Earl
by Naomi Boom

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Regency Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Miss Alexandra Farris lost her heart to her older brother's friend, Lord Maxon Collins, long, long ago. Despite her girlhood attempts to win him, he never noticed her. Now that her first season is underway, she understands why. He prefers willowy blondes, not curvaceous maidens with darker coloring like herself. Rather than wallow in self-pity, she forgets love and focuses on something more attainable—an advantageous match.

Lord Collins is plagued by an uncomfortable feeling whenever he goes near Miss Farris. One of annoyance. And yet, he can’t seem to stop thinking of her, touching her, kissing her...He must act in her brother’s stead, which means he has to approve her suitor and ensure her safety. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to find a worthy gentleman.

Wedding her off should be a simple task, but not if he can’t let her go.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

She inhaled and stepped up to him. He was so tall, at least five inches taller than her, yet she would not allow him to intimidate her, not this gentleman she used to pester as a little girl. She peered up at him and planted her fists on her hips. “You cannot possibly imagine I would listen to you, can you?”

His eyes narrowed, and he straightened from his position against the wall which brought him that much closer to her. “I don’t only imagine. I know you will listen to me. You have no other options.”

“Of course I do.”

“No, you do not.”

Their gazes locked, and everything around Alexa faded away, except for the brilliant blue eyes which held her riveted in place. She brought her palm to her chest to make sure her heart still beat.

It did, just barely.

She finally broke away and whispered, “I have not given him a response yet.”

His responding smile lacked warmth, and he appeared to gloat as he said, “Excellent. I never have liked Lord Edwin and cannot fathom why you do.”

“I happen to be very much in love with him.” She colored. She had just told Lord Collins she loved Lord Edwin. Where was her fan when she needed it most? Next to Miss Cannis where she had forgotten it. And now, she had to endure a most frustrating conversation where she admitted a falsehood. Not a simple falsehood, either. One which competed with the largest untruths of her life.

Her rushed denial teetered on her lips as a stronger gust of wind tore through her hair, causing several more strands to dislodge. She muttered a curse and reached up to repair the damage the wind had made.

His large, warm hand shot out and stopped her. The humid night air could not compare to the warmth of his hand on hers, nor could it compete with the spasmodic tingles breaking out throughout her body.

The contact was too unexpected.

Too intimate.
Too much.

She darted a hesitant glance his way where he quickly masked a warm look and took a step away from her. “Leave your hair.”
She swayed from the loss of his touch and the lack of warmth in his tone.

“Are you quite all right?” he asked with a sneer, as if to erase all touches of warmth with harshness. It hadn’t worked, though. She knew better.

Whatever strange demon had overtaken him tonight was not normal and was, quite frankly, vexing to deal with. “I see you can choose to employ good manners when you wish.”

His countenance darkened and he lifted a brow. “You evidently are just fine.”

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?

Anyone who likes Regency romances. While I write clean romances, I also want to create books where the reader doesn’t notice a graphic scene is missing. I like to leave things behind closed doors, if anything even happens. Not that I dislike graphic scenes, I just usually find them unnecessary.


Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

Alexa, the heroine. I like how she’s human. She makes mistakes and has some insecurities that she must deal with. At the same time, she has her pride, which sometimes gets in the way of making the best choices. 

How about your least favorite character? What makes them less appealing to you?

Lord Edwin, the villain. He has a strong desire to please his father, which would be fine, except he cares more for his father’s opinion than Alexa’s – the woman he’s pursuing. In fact, Lord Edwin does most with one goal: To please his father. No wonder Alexa gets irritated with him.

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?

Snuff. I knew a bit about snuff boxes but for To Entice an Earl, I needed to know a lot more. Like, what it felt like for first time users, how it’s stored, and its origins. I only ended up using a fraction of what I learned but goodness I spent a lot of time on that subject.

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I love hearing from readers, so if anyone wants to contact me, send me a message through my facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/NaomiMBoom/ 

What can we expect from you in the future?

More novels. I love writing and learning how to write better. Reviews give me insight into what I need to work on and with each realization, I get a strange desire to work more. I’m addicted.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Naomi Boom never expected to love writing. Her inspiration struck while searching for the perfect historical romance novel to read. Nothing sounded appealing, so she decided to write her own. That one novel has morphed into a series, and hopefully many, many more.

She resides in her home state of South Dakota with her husband and toddler. Her dream is to someday find an acreage where she can raise chickens and, naturally, continue her writing.
