Amazon | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound | Harlequin
Desperate times call for daring measures as Honor Cabot, the eldest stepdaughter of the wealthy Earl of Beckington, awaits her family’s ruin. Upon the earl’s death she and her sisters stand to lose the luxury of their grand home—and their place on the pedestal of society—to their stepbrother and his social-climbing fiancée. Forced to act quickly, Honor makes a devil’s bargain with the only rogue in London who can seduce her stepbrother’s fiancée out of the Cabots’ lives for good.Julia London answered a few questions for you all here giving a little more insight into the series and Ms. London herself :)
An illegitimate son of a duke, George Easton was born of scandal and grows his fortune through dangerous risks. But now he and Honor are dabbling in a perilous dance of seduction that puts her reputation and his jaded heart on the line. And as unexpected desire threatens to change the rules of their secret game, the stakes may become too high even for a notorious gambler and a determined, free-spirited debutante to handle.
If you could be any one of your characters in the Cabot Sisters series for a day? Who would you choose?
I guess I would be Honor. I liked how she was unapologetic for going after what she wanted and needed. I think a lot of women, myself included, apologize when we put ourselves first instead of our families. But sometimes, a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do and she shouldn’t have to apologize for it. That’s the way Honor is. I’d be like her, gutsy and bold. Mostly in my head. But in my head, I would make a great Honor.
Where did you write this book?Mostly at home, but I write wherever I am. Thank goodness for laptops because I’m always on the go. I have an office, but I like to move around and change scenery. It helps me stay productive. Sometimes just a move from the office to another room is enough to get me off the stinking internet and writing again. The internet is the bane of my existence. I have no discipline when it comes to social media.
What are you reading now?The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger. It’s a great look at modern day marriage and the secrets that no spouse want’s to discover.
