If Wishes Were Earls (Rhymes With Love #3) by Elizabeth Boyle (Guest Post)

I'm really stoked to have Elizabeth Boyle at the blog today. Elizabeth is an award-winning romance writer and her latest novel, If Wishes Were Earls, was recently released by Avon. Keep reading to find out more about Elizabeth and her novel!

If Wishes Were Earls by Elizabeth Boyle.
Audience & Genre: Women, Romance.
Publication: December 31st 2013 by Avon
Harriet Hathaway has only ever wanted one man: the Earl of Roxley. After a passionate interlude at a house party, Harriet is convinced Roxley will do the right thing and propose. But when she returns to London, she finds the roguish earl on the verge of proposing to another.

Yet Harriet refuses to believe that her hopes of a happily ever after are completely lost—for she can see the desire still flickering in the earl's eyes when he looks at her from across the dance floor. And when they are alone...there is one wish neither can deny.
The Earl of Roxley is in a dangerous fix—and to keep Harriet safe, he must hold her at arm's length. He won't entangle her in the murderous mystery that is threatening to destroy his family and his future. But keeping Harriet Hathaway out of his troubles proves as impossible as it was to keep the determined beauty from stealing his heart.

Five Favorites from Elizabeth

1) Favorite things about being an Author. I can’t really pick one favorite thing, so I’ll just list them. Working at home. Your work uniform consists of yoga pants. I can work anywhere. That blazing moment when a story and all its varied elements—plot, conflict and characters come together and it all works.

2) Favorite Book to reread. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. She wrote the Anne of Green Gables series, which I truly love, but The Blue Castle is her best book, in my humble opinion. I have probably read this book a hundred times.

3) Of all your books, pick a favorite. I hate picking just one, but I do have my favorite: Something About Emmaline. I just love how she turns Alexander’s perfectly ordered life totally upside down. Close second: His Mistress by Morning. For much the same reasons, but this time it is the heroine who makes a wish and wakes up to find her dull spinster’s existence completely altered.

4) Favorite thing to do when not writing – Walk on the beach. I don’t care if it is just Puget Sound here in Seattle or the Pacific Ocean at Seaside, or even better, that beach on Oahu that Jane Porter sent me to. I love water. When I can’t sleep at night, my husband will tell me to listen to the waves. They might be only in my imagination, but I hear them.

5) Favorite movie. Bar none, the old classic, Harold and Maude. It is such a life affirming, get off your butt and do something with grand enthusiasm sort of movie, what isn’t to like? And Ruth Gordon, bless her soul, is so hilarious. That, and the Cat Stevens soundtrack will just compel you to LIVE each day.

Elizabeth Boyle is the author of 22 Regency set historical romances and tries to LIVE each day with grand enthusiasm. When not writing, she is gazing at Puget Sound from her home in Seattle, herding her family (which is much like herding feral cats) and letting her imagination roam through the glorious world of Jane Austen.
