I am delighted to welcome Award Winning and USA Today Bestselling Historical and Paranormal Romance Author CAROLYN JEWEL to Rakes and Rascals today for an exclusive interview.

Thank you so much for having me here!



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

I was born in Southern California but we moved to a small town in Northern California when I was six. We lived out in the country and since I had siblings, we played together and outside a lot. I was involved in a lot of activities such as music and ballet that kept me pretty busy after school. I have been very fortunate in my life, I must say.


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

I would love to say I’m easy-going, but I think not.


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

At times I have survived on coffee and dark chocolate. Draw your own conclusions from that!


What is your most treasured possession?

My iPhone. If I can’t pick that, then I’ll say my grandmother’s rock collection. There are some really beautiful samples in it and my son was enthralled with the collection when he was a boy.


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

This is a tough choice. It might be a three-way tie between a house in California’s Gold Country, a pied-a-terre in Paris, or a Scottish croft house. If money is no object and maintenance is included, then I would choose a castle in Scotland. If that happens, please come visit me!


Finally, what has been your most embarrassing moment?

I wish I had a better answer to this question. Like most authors, I am an introvert who has to be an extrovert for brief periods. This means that I limit my interactions and thus my opportunities to make a fool of myself. In my adult life, however, I reached a point where I concluded that as long as I am being true to myself, fair to others, and interacting in good faith, I have nothing to be embarrassed about.




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

Thank you so much!

Cover Blurb:

From an author known for her “pulse-pounding action, well-drawn characters, and sexy romance”,* comes the tale of a proper young widow and the rake who is out to steal her heart…

The Earl of Banallt is no stranger to scandal. But when he meets Sophie Evans, the young wife of a fellow libertine, even he is shocked by his reaction. This unconventional and intelligent woman proves to be far more than an amusing distraction – she threatens to drive him to distraction. Unlike the women who usually fall at Banallt’s feet, and into his bed, Sophie refuses to be seduced. And soon Banallt desires her more than ever – and for more than an illicit affair.

Years later, the widowed Sophie is free, and Banallt is determined to win the woman he still loves. Unfortunately, she doesn’t believe his declaration of love and chivalrous offer of marriage – her heart has already been broken by her scoundrel of a husband. And yet, Sophie is tempted to indulge in the torrid affair she’s always fantasized about. Caught between her logical mind and her long-denied desire, Sophie must thwart Banallt’s seduction – or risk being consumed by the one man she should avoid at all costs…

It’s been a few years since I read any of Carolyn Jewel’s books but when I saw this free on Amazon, I snapped it up.

(Pennyroyal Green, #1)

Genre: Historical Romance (Regency)

Cover Blurb:

His life is in her hands…

She’s willing to be fearless for a price…but what if the cost is her heart?

A rescued rogue…

Scandal has rocked the city of London. Colin Eversea, a handsome, reckless unapologetic rogue is sentenced to hang for murder and, inconveniently for him, the only witness to the crime disappears. Then again, throughout history, the Everseas have always managed to cheat fate in style: Colin is snatched from the gallows by a beautiful, clever mercenary.

A captivating captor...

Cool-headed, daring Madeleine Greenway is immune to Colin’s vaunted charm. Her mission is not to rescue Colin but to kidnap him, and to be paid handsomely for it. But when it becomes clear that whoever wants Colin alive wants Madeline dead, the two become uneasy allies in a deadly race for truth. Together, they’ll face great danger—and a passion neither can resist.

A lot of my friends have recommended this series and so I thought it was about time I took the plunge and started reading it.
