Spotlight on: Mia Marlowe and …

Touch of  Seduction Series!

Touch of a Lady [Prequel]

TOAL MMTristan’s grandfather lost the family fortune and the Devonwood earldom still hasn’t recovered under his father’s tenure. In order to save the estate from disaster, Tristan is determined to wed the daughter of a duke. Lady Florence’s dowry is reputedly hefty enough to sink a frigate, so Tristan will shoulder the family’s burden, even if it means a loveless match.

When he first lays eyes on Delphinia Preston, he knows she’s trouble in a gorgeous blue dress. Despite the rumors about her being a half-gypsy witch, there’s something about the grey-eyed beauty that calls to Tristan. And he can’t keep himself from answering, even if it means wrecking all his carefully laid plans…

Touch of a Thief [Book I]

TOAT MMLady Viola Preston can relieve a gentleman of the studs at his wrists without his being any the wiser and pick any lock devised by man in less than a minute. But she’s careful to wear gloves when she steals jewels. Because when Viola touches a gemstone with her bare skin, it “speaks” to her, sending disturbing visions–visions almost as unsettling as the sight of the cool-eyed stranger who catches her red handed.

Now Viola will only be stealing at Greydon Quinn’s behest. And even more daunting than the violent history of the red diamond he’s after is the prospect of a night in the devastatingly handsome lieutenant’s arms. Touch has always been Viola’s weakness, and the full body-to-body contact Quinn has in mind is about to shatter her defenses and set her senses reeling.

Touch of a Rogue [Book II]

TOAR MMJacob Preston has three requirements for a woman desiring access to his bed: She must be enthusiastic in affairs of passion, jaded in matters of the heart, and–to ensure the first two qualifications–she must be married.

Lady Julianne Cambourne has all the makings of a passionate lover, and she certainly shows no signs of sentimentality. . .but her unmarried status should render her firmly off limits to Jacob.

Instead, it proves only a temptation. One that grows stronger when she comes to him in desperation, looking for the kind of answers only he can give. For beyond his rakish reputation, Jacob is known for the mysterious–even otherworldly–power of detection he commands through his sense of touch. And Julianne, surrounded by long-hidden secrets that threaten to ensnare her in a deadly trap, will do whatever it takes to recruit his skills. . . using every form of persuasion at her disposal. . .

Touch of a Scoundrel [Book III]

TOAS MMGriffin Nash, Earl of Devonwood, wants to believe that he’s seducing Miss Emmaline Farnsworth out of protectiveness for his young brother. After all, if his brother is convinced that the tantalizing professor’s daughter is unworthy of his trust, perhaps Teddy will lose all interest in such an inappropriate choice for his station.

But in truth, something else motivates Devonwood: a scintillating vision he’s had of a future tryst with the lovely Emmaline. A vision too realistic to be doubted–and too scaldingly passionate to be denied.

Yet Emmaline is not as easily tempted as Devonwood might have hoped–nor is she actually in pursuit of a wealthy husband. No, the real reason for her visit to the manor is something much more shocking. . . though being enticed by a dashing earl may prove to be a most welcome by-product of her schemes. . .

Mia MarloweMia Marlowe’s Bio: Award winning author Mia Marlowe writes historical romance for Kensington Publishing and Sourcebooks. Her debut title received acclaim from romance luminaries. #1 New York Times bestseller Victoria Alexander says Mia’s Touch of a Thief has “adventure and heat and everything I want in a great story!” UK’s BooksMonthly has crowned Mia Marlowe “the queen of saucy historical romance.”

Mia learned much of what she knows about storytelling from singing. A classically trained soprano, she won the District Metropolitan Opera Auditions and shared a stage with Placido Domingo. As she prepared for operatic roles, she devised back stories for her characters. Since she’s worn a real corset, and had to sing high C’s in one, she empathizes with the trials of her fictional heroines. But in Mia’s stories, they don’t die in a Parisian garret. They get to live and keep the hero!

  1. What fabulous things you have done so far in your young life! I’m very impressed. AND a wonderfully talented author too. Sigh…

    I love the names you choose for your heroes and heroines. They all sound so very aristocratic. Looking forward to reading even more of your novels.

    Congratulations on all of your successes!

  2. I’ve read Touch Of A Rogue and loved it! This was the review that I left:

    “Jacob and Julianne’s story was an interesting one. It was full of secrets and danger that take you into the underworld of a secret society. Jacob is a rake in the first order who finds himself falling in love with the only woman who can shake his beliefs. The only problem is that she has learned never to give her heart. She’s suffered great loss and finds that opening herself up to Jacob can be her salvation instead of her downfall. Jacob and some of his family have powers they’ve kept hidden from the public. He is a Metal Mage. His is a power with metals. He cannot come close to them without hearing their past and the aftermath is a great pain that takes over his body. The stickler is that Julianne hires him to help her find the last dagger of a set. I enjoyed following them on their journey as they not only uncovered secrets and set them free, but they learned to set their own souls free with a most powerful love.”

    I’m looking forward to reading the others. Thank you for the chance in the giveaway. :)

  3. I keep finding new (to me) authors just about daily! I can’t wait to read your books, whether I win or not. Thanks for the contest~~

  4. Hi Melanie and Mia!

    Melanie -
    I’m thrilled you invited Mia over to visit! Have you ever picked up one of her books and been able to put it down before finishing it? I know that I haven’t been able to because there’s just that something special about them that you don’t just want to know what’s going to happen next but MUST find out NOW! Please let me know that I’m not the only one who feels that way!

    Mia -
    Thanks so much for all the wonderful hours of reading you’ve shared with all your readers. I think the first book of yours I read was called A Duke For All Seasons but I do know that when I hear one of your books is going to be released that I’m going to read it! I’ve always wondered which is more difficult for you coming up with the plot or the characters?

    You always manage to come up with such interesting secondary characters that I’m always hoping to “see” them again. What secondary character that you wrote did you like the most?

    • Oo, some good questions, Jeanne. Plotting is more of a challenge for me than characterization because I start with the characters and let the plot grow out of their needs organically. I love all my characters, but one of the secondary characters that threatened to take over my book is Damian in SILK DREAMS. (This was first published under Diana Groe in 2007, but I got the rights back from Dorchester and plan to reissue it as a Rock*It Read this year.)

      • Mia -

        Here I thought I had read all your books and I didn’t know anything about Silk Dreams! I love that you and the other authors got together to make Rock*It Reads a reality! I’ll be looking out for Silk Dreams to be released later this year!

  5. I already have the prequel, so please don’t enter me in the contest…..I just wanted to stop by and tell Mia how much I enjoy her books and thank you so much for the many hours of enjoyment I’ve had reading them!

  6. Oh Mia Marlowe, what fun to read her writing. She has the ability to take me away everytime I crack one of her books open. And I have always loved the cover for Touch of a Scoundrel.

    (no need to enter me in the drawing, I have her ebooks)

  7. I’ve really enjoyed meeting so many good writers through other writers and now bookworm2bookworm has been a great source of information. Mia, I haven’t read any of your books, but truely love historical regency fiction/romance. It’s funny–I studied music and got my Bachelor of Music degree. My leaning was toward opera. I fell in love with that time period since I was a child. I love the dresses and the architecture of the time period as well as the music. And now it looks like you have some paranormal in your books. Mia, you are my kind of author! I’m excited to start the series. Will you be writing more or does book III complete the series?
