Love Redeemed Blog Tour with @SorchaMowbray

15 Nov

Fellow Silken Sheets and Seduction blogger and erotic romance writer extraordaire, Sorcha Mowbray, is visiting the blog today. She has a fabulous new book out this week! And there’s a contest! Woohoo!

 

 

Sorcha Mowbray On Writing a Series

First, I love reading a series. I love getting to know characters and then seeing them in other books. So, writing a series was fun for me too! In The Market Series there are not many characters that carry over from book to book. These are novellas so there isn’t a whole lot of room for secondary characters; which means this particular series doesn’t have an extensive amount of characters bouncing around.

That said, there are a few. Okay, two to be exact. The first (and most important!) is Madame Marchander. As the proprietress of the brothel she has a relatively significant role in the first two books, and then will be the heroine in book three. While still being the hard-nosed business woman we met in Love Revealed (Book 1), in Love Redeemed (Book 2) she uses her shrewdness to help further the relationship between Brennan and Serena. By no means is she a matchmaker, but she is smart enough to see the inevitable.

The other character we see in Love Redeemed (Book 2) who reappears in the final book is Celest. One of the senior girls in the house, she often acts in Madame’s stead when required. We don’t know much about her, but she is definitely a presence.

The real continuity of the series comes from the setting. The Market plays a pivotal role in each story from the series. That’s not to say it is the primary scene of all the action, but it is where some of the most important scenes occur. In Love Redeemed (Book 2) it is the location for two key scenes…which I will not giveaway.

But, it is the house itself that binds all three stories together, and in truth leaves the door open for future stories set here. As of now I don’t anticipate more books set at The Market, but stranger things have happened!

What do you love about reading or writing a series? Got a favorite series from any genre?

Love Redeemed (Book 2, The Market Series)

Brennan Whitling wants for nothing but the love of a good woman. He has a close family, good friends, and a successful textiles import business. But, a beautiful and elusive young woman he has only seen from afar haunts him. Until a chance meeting leads to far more than dinner.

Serena Freemont has only ever known the life of a prostitute. When an invitation to dinner by a handsome gentleman provides her an opportunity to experience life as a young lady, it’s too tempting to pass up. Much like the man issuing it. After a night of passion she must disappear or face his reaction when the truth is revealed.

To find happiness Serena must shed her past long enough to realize she is worthy of a future. To win her heart, Brennan must show her the redemptive power of love.

 

Excerpt:

“Are you all right, Miss?”

For a moment, for this moment, she was a normal young woman experiencing the attentions of a handsome young man. Heat crept up her cheeks as he held her hatbox out, and the burning had nothing to do with the sun. “I-I— Yes, I am. Thank you.” His blue-gray eyes seemed to bore into her.

“I am so glad. I was sure you were a goner there for a moment.” He flashed a brilliant grin liquefying Serena’s insides instantly. “Please let me introduce myself. I’m Mr. Brennan Whitling of Whitling Textiles Importers and Wholesalers.”

“How do you do, Mr. Whitling?” Serena allowed her lips to curve up ever so slightly. “I am Miss Serena Freemont.”

“It is a pleasure. Might I interest you and your”—he glanced around the bustling street as his grin faded in confusion— “chaperone in a cup of tea?”

A wave of horror swept over Serena. Chaperone? Harlots did not require one of those. “Oh, Aunt Henrietta is in the bookstore, and I fear she will be in there a very long time. I am certain she won’t notice if we slip off for a quick spot of tea.”

“Excellent! There is a lovely little shop just up the street.” A beautiful smile spread across his face, causing her pulse to quicken.

He escorted her up the block where they stopped at a quaint little teashop. They settled in at a table and ordered a pot of tea.

“What has you on Bond Street today, Mr. Whitling?” They sat in semi privacy at the back of the shop.

“Oh, I was visiting some of my customers and taking new orders. I am very glad I was there to help you, and by virtue of said assistance make your acquaintance.” Did his already deep voice grow huskier? Their tea service arrived, dispelling the moment.

“As am I. Landing on my backside in the middle of the street would have been rather embarrassing. But in truth, thank you for your assistance today, and now the tea.” She lifted her freshly prepared cup to her lips and took a dainty sip from the delicate china. Through lowered lashes, she watched his graceful movements as he prepared his own.

“It is my pleasure on both accounts. You seem familiar to me. Have we met somewhere before? A ball perhaps?”

 

 

 

Sorcha Mowbray is a mild mannered office worker by day…okay, so she is actually a mouthy, opinionated, take charge kind of gal who bosses everyone around; but she definitely works in an office. At night she writes romance so hot she sets the sheets on fire! Just ask her slightly singed husband.

She is a long time lover of historical romance, having grown up reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught. Then she discovered Thea Devine and Susan Johnson. Holy cow! Heroes and heroines could do THAT? From there, things devolved into trying her hand at writing a little smexy. Needless to say, she liked it and she hopes you do too!
