[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Millionaire Rogue?

[Jessica Peterson] Sure!  This book was so much fun to write.  A couple of years ago I was researching the Hope Diamond and discovered it appeared, mysteriously, in 1812 London.  This was the spark for my HOPE DIAMOND TRILOGY.  How fun to set a trio of romances amidst the intrigue of a cursed diamond with a checkered past?  I couldn’t resist!

A war hero returned from Waterloo should be able to indulge in a bit of bad behavior. Instead, Captain William Endicott is summoned by his father, the Duke of York, to investigate an assassination plot. The unlikely suspect: William’s former sweetheart.

Review: Last Chance Family by Hope Ramsay

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I wanted to read Last Chance Family for a few reasons.  First, Charlene is a veterinarian.  I love vet books.  Probably because I wanted to vet, but silly me – I listened when adults said girls weren’t good at math and science (yes, I went to school a long time ago and had zero self-esteem).  Second, Mike is suddenly forced to play the role of parent to his young niece.  I enjoy the single parent/guardian trope, especially when said parent/guardian is overwhelmed with their new responsibilities.  Mike is a gambler, he had an abusive and unhappy childhood, and he is blindsided by his duties taking care of Rainbow.  So blindsided that he immediately determines that he needs to make the brother he hasn’t seen since he was five Rainbow’s new caretaker.

Please give Chelsey Krause a warm welcome to the virtual offices!

[Manga Maniac Cafe]  Good morning, Chelsey! Describe yourself in five words or less.

Eclectic. Funny. Organized. Creative. Capable.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your book?

What if you found “the one,” and then lost him?

This story is about Sophie, an acute care nurse who loves the Rolling Stones. When her best friend bails on their plans to go to a concert together, Sophie ends up with an extra ticket, and (begrudgingly) gets stuck on a blind date.

Although Brett Nicholson may be the hottest carpenter alive, and Sophie may technically be single, she isn’t exactly on the market. Six years ago she found The One. He was everything Sophie dreamed a man could be—and then she lost him. Now that he’s gone, Sophie finds herself in a life she never expected.
