Sweet Bea Release Blog Tour!
When he’s bad, he’s better!!!
As I tell you all the time, this blog is one of my favorite places to hang out. I’m totally excited to be here and celebrate the release of my second medieval romance, Sweet Bea.
When I wrote Sweet Bea, I took a bit of a chance on the hero, Garrett. He’s a bad, nasty boy in the beginning.
That got me thinking about bad boys and how much I love them. So, before I tell you a bit about Sweet Bea, I thought I would count down my ten favorite bad boys of all time.
10. This must belong to the bad boy that started it all for me, the granddaddy of all bad boys and my first crush - Rhett Butler. He’s 78 this year, having first ogled his way into our hearts in 1936 with the release of the book, Gone with the Wind.
9. Like so many others, I have read nearly everything written by Johanna Lindsay. So, my next bad boy has to be Captain James Mallory from A Gentle Rogue by Ms. Lindsay.
8. Shifting genres with a ‘shifter’ bad boy, how could I forget that seven-foot plus polar bear/lion shape shifter, Bo Novikov from Shelly Laurentson’s, Beast Behaving Badly.
7. I adore Kelly Robak from Cara McKenna’s smoking hot erotic romance, After Hours. He takes big, bad, mean and moody to a whole new level. Strictly non PC, a thug with a big heart.
6. Suave, sophisticated and deliciously devious, there is always space on my top ten for Leopold Dautry, Duke of Villiers, from Eloisa James’ wonderful historical, A Duke of her Own.
5. And sticking with those historical hunks, how could I even think of a list like this without including Suzanne Enoch’s “Saint”, Michael Halboro, Marquis of St. Aubyn, from her book London’s Perfect Scoundrel. A ‘saint’ he is not.
4. A more recent favorite would have to be Kane “Tack” Allen from Kristan Ashley’s steaming, Motorcycle Man. Complete with tats, a Harley and a bad attitude.
3. A tortured bad boy with a terrible past and the scars to prove it, my newest favorite has to be Rex Carter from J. B. Salbury’s incredible novel, Fighting to Forget.
2. Going back to Regency England for the number two slot and it belongs to Sebastian, Viscount St. Vincent, from Lisa Kleypas’s wonderful book, The Devil in Winter. Another smooth-talking, sophisticated scoundrel with murky intentions.
1. And my all time, favorite bad boy, the one I can read and reread and read again has to be Hardy Cates. Another Lisa Kleypas winner from her contemporary novel. Blue-Eyed Devil.
Which brings me to my bad boy, Garrett, and Sweet Bea. Let me just leave you with the blurb.
Is anything sweeter than revenge?
In a family of remarkable people, ordinary Beatrice strives to prove herself worthy. When her family is threatened with losing everything, she rushes to London to save them. Unfortunately, she chooses as her savior the very man who will see her family brought low.
Garrett has sworn vengeance on Sir Arthur of Anglesea for destroying his life when he was a boy and forcing his mother into prostitution for them to survive. He has chosen as his instrument Sir Arthur's youngest daughter, Beatrice.
Can Beatrice’s goodness teach Garrett that love, not vengeance, is the greatest reward of all?
