Angelina Jameson Interview -author photo

I’m delighted to welcome Regency Romance Author ANGELINA JAMESON to Rakes and Rascals today for an exclusive interview.

I am so honoured you asked me to be on your blog. Thank you!

~~~~~~~


R&R:
Could you tell us where you were born and what it was like growing up there?

Angelina:
I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada when the city was a bit smaller than it is now. I grew up camping a lot because my parents were first cub scout and then boy scout leaders. I spent my youth tramping around in the forests surrounding Mount Charleston or swimming at Lake Mead. (Yes, there are forests and lakes in Nevada.) I’m a twin and my sister and I were spoiled by our older brothers and sisters. There were nine kids in our house, so I had a loud, busy childhood well away from the usual Vegas glitz.

R&R
:
How would you describe yourself – temperamental or easy-going?

Angelina:
Easy-going. I wasn’t always that way! The older I get the calmer I get. My mom always told me there were grey areas in life, but I would only see situations in black or white. Now I understand she was telling me I needed to be more sympathetic to others, to walk a mile in their shoes. She was always a lady and I try to be more like her every day.


R&R
:
When it comes to food do you like sweet or savoury or both?

Angelina:
I gravitate toward sweets. My whole family does. Perhaps it was all the birthday cakes I ate growing up. Whenever you turned around, mom was making another birthday cake for one of us kids. And I love ice cream. Ice cream is my Achilles’ heel.


R&R:
What is your most treasured possession?

Angelina:
Wow. That’s a hard one. If I must pick one I would say it was the picture my sister Yvonne took of our mom two Christmas’s before she died. The next Christmas my mom had lost her hair due to chemo. Despite my mom having had a stroke and being in a wheelchair unable to talk, that picture captures her sweet disposition and vitality for life.

My mom Joan. One of the kindest people I have ever met.


R&R:
If you could afford a second home anywhere in the world where would you choose and why?

Angelina:
That’s an easy one: England! A lovely cottage in Suffolk. My husband and I met when we were both stationed at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk. After we got married we lived in Newmarket. Suffolk county holds a lot of special memories for me. You could spend a lifetime in England and never run out of Interesting or historical places to visit. I currently live in Alaska so the coldest temps in England would feel like summer to me.

 

R&R:
Finally, what has been your most embarrassing moment?

Angelina:
There are so many… The one that comes to mind I can envision as if it were yesterday, it was so mortifying to me. If you ever watched the television show Happy Days, there was a character named Pinky Tuscadero, and other characters would say she was ‘hot-to-trot.’ When I was young I was playing outside with some friends and said I was ‘hot-to-trot.’ I had no idea what that meant. My mom overheard me and explained very loudly what the phrase meant and why a little girl shouldn’t be saying such a thing. I got a good dressing down in front of all the neighbourhood kids. It was awful.

Thank you for taking time out to be here today and sharing these interesting facts about yourself, Angelina.

Thank you for having me. I enjoyed reliving some lovely and sometimes mortifying memories!

Genre: Historical Romance (Regency)

Cover Blurb:

As the Black Raven, she’s cold, distant and alone…untouched by the gossip and scorn of her aristocratic peers. Until he enters her house—and her life—then suddenly her icy shell is no match for the heat of attraction…

Notorious Widow Lisbeth Carslake, Countess of Blackhurst was acquitted of her husband’s murder, but no one believes in her innocence. Known as the Black Raven, bringer of bad luck and death, she is eviscerated by the gossips and mocked in the clubs.

She’s also the subject of London’s most scandalous wager.

Oliver Whitely, Earl of Bellamy, needs money, but it takes more than a few drinks to take on The Black Raven Wager. He finds himself drunk, at her house, and—more surprisingly—agreeing to a business proposal at the end of a fire poker.

She will let him win the wager, and he will help find her husband’s killer before the killer finds her. But business agreements don’t mean trust, and Lisbeth certainly doesn’t trust Oliver, her body’s reaction to him, or her heart.

Love may be the biggest gamble of their lives, but is it a wager their hearts can afford to lose?

Cover Blurb:

What if Fitzwilliam Darcy refused to approach Elizabeth Bennet when he observes her upon the grounds of Pemberley? What if Elizabeth permits Mr. Darcy to think her the one ruined by Mr. Wickham? What if love is not enough to bring two souls together?

FITZWILLIAM DARCY’s pride makes the natural leap to ELIZABETH BENNET’s ruination when the lady appears, without notice, upon Pemberley’s threshold to plead for Darcy’s assistance in locating his long-time enemy, George Wickham. Initially, Darcy cannot look beyond the pain of lost hopes, but when Charles Bingley demands that Darcy act with honor, Darcy assumes the task. Even so, the idea of delivering Miss Elizabeth into the hand of Mr. Wickham leaves Darcy raw with anguish. Yet, Darcy loves Elizabeth Bennet too much to see her brought low. He sets his heartbreak aside to save the woman he loves, but it is not long before Darcy realizes Elizabeth practices a deception, one Darcy permits so he might remain at her side long enough to convince the lady only in each other can they find happiness.

Their adventure takes more twists and turns than does the original “Pride and Prejudice,” but the reader will enjoy the devotion displayed by Darcy and Elizabeth as they bring Wickham to the line in Lydia Bennnet’s defense, as well as their working their way through multiple misconstructions and vulnerabilities. Darcy’s final wooing of Elizabeth brings to very private individuals to a very public declaration of their love.

Chastity and her siblings have been on the run for more than two years. Desperate for food and lodging money, she is forced to sell herself.

(Scandalous, #2.5)

Genre: Historical Romance (Regency)

Cover Blurb:

Nothing wagered…

Douglas Bennet can’t resist a good wager, especially not one that involves a beautiful woman. When a friend proposes an audacious plan to expose the most notorious woman in England, Douglas agrees at once. After all, it would be quite a coup to discover the true identity of Lady Constance, author of the infamous erotic serial scandalizing the ton, 50 Ways to Sin.

Nothing won

Madeline Wilde is used to being pursued. For years she’s cultivated a reputation for being unattainable and mysterious, and for good reason: her livelihood depends on discretion. When Douglas turns his legendary charm on her, she dismisses him as just another rake. But he surprises her—instead of merely trying to seduce her, he becomes her friend…her confidant…and her lover. But can it really lead to happily-ever-after…or are they about to become the biggest scandal London has ever seen?
