Please welcome Duncan Maclachlan, Earl of Thornton to the virtual offices this morning!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Duncan Maclachlan?
[Thornton] I wake early. Aye, I ken it’s unusual for a lord, but I am what ye might call embarrassed of funds at the moment so I need to work to pay the creditors. Aye, I ken that’s unusual too, but I will do what I must. And dinna bother telling me to marry some rich heiress to right my fortunes. I have learned from my parent’s mistake. I will never, never marry an heiress.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Miss Harriet Redgrave?
[Thornton] Explosive, Unpredictable, Fascinating
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you find most exasperating about her?
[Thornton] She does have a disturbing penchant for accidentally setting things on fire with her experiments on alchemy. I have’na decided if she’s brilliant or touched in the head. She also seems to do and say whatever comes to mind, wi’out regard for societal strictures. I dinna ken what to make o’ her but I’d like to see her more… if only she weren’t so obscenely rich.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Thornton] I let the disaster that was my parent’s marriage color my view on the institution. Huge mistake. Fortunately, Miss Redgrave has other ideas on the subject. Ones that I confess I am verra interested in exploring further.
Amanda Forester – Thanks so much for inviting me and Thornton to visit. I hope a little Midsummer Bride will warm your hearts this holiday season! I love to hear from readers so come visit me at my website, facebook, or twitter.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
About the book:
One Unconventional American Heiress Can Be Even Wilder Than the Highlands…
Outspoken American heiress Harriet Redgrave is undeniably bad ton. She laughs too much, rides too fast, and tends to start fires pursuing her interest in the new science of chemistry. And despite her grandfather’s matchmaking intentions to the contrary, Harriet has no interest in being wooed for her wealth.
Duncan Maclachlan, Earl of Thornton, would never marry to repair the family fortunes. Or would he? When he saves Harriet from a science experiment about to go very, very, wrong, all bets are off.
