Interview & Giveaway with Anna Randol

Hi Anna, Welcome to Anna's Book Blog! I'm glad to have you here. To start off can you tell the readers a little about yourself?
Thanks so much for having me! (I am a big fan of anyone with such an awesome first name. J) I write sultry, adventurous romance for Avon. I have a horrible sweet tooth. I am a big nerd in real life. And I love happy endings!

A Most Naked Solution is your latest release, can you tells us a little about it? Lady Sophia Harding: beautiful, blond, and . . .capable of murder? That's what Lord Camden Grey intends to find out. It is Camden's duty to uphold the laws of the land. His neighbor's pale beauty and winsome grace don't make her the most likely suspect, but is the innocent and altogether beguiling look in her eyes the truth, or is she secretly a scheming seductress?

Lord Camden Grey is entirely too distracting and too smart. Sophia knows that to keep her family's secrets, she must avoid any entanglements with the powerful and brutally handsome man. But the pull of their mutual desire is all-consuming. Can Sophia trust Camden with the truth when she knows it might kill the love that has grown between them?

What is your writing day like?
I’ve got two little kids, so my writing is usually limited to naptime and bedtime. I do try to get a solid 2,000 words a day written, but that’s often in bits and pieces throughout the day.

When you’re not writing, what kind of books do you like to read?

I love all types of romance, but I also love YA (especially fantasy and those with a strong romantic element). And I always have a nightstand full of research books. Right now, my pile includes everything from books on paper mills to the Congress of Vienna.

What are 3 things that are "must haves" for you when you sit down to write a book?
Dark chocolate, sleeping kids, my comfy, old laptop.

Since becoming published, what has been your favorite part of the process?
I love talking with my readers! Writing can be a solitary endeavor, so it’s amazing to find out that my books are actually being enjoyed by real people. I also love being able to match faces with online friends when they come to see me at book signings.

What do you like most about writing historical books?
Regency England is such a fascinating time. On one hand, some of the restrictions that would come about during Victorians times had not yet materialized, so there’s a chance for heroines to really be able to experiment and run a bit wild. Yet there are social restrictions that keep them from going too far!

The Napoleonic war was still costing countless lives in the background even as balls and soirees went on in London, creating perfect opportunities for heroic heroes and all sorts of intrigue. It’s such a great time to work with! 

If you could give your lead characters one piece of advice, what would it be?
It’s okay to trust your heart and put your needs first. You are worth it.

If you can, please tell us what is next for you?
My next novel, Sins of a Virgin, releases Aug. 28th. This is book one in my new Sinners Trio series that I’m so excited about! Here’s the blurb: There is improper, there is scandalous… and then there is Madeline Valdan.

To the world, Madeline Valdan is a scandalous courtesan, with society's most eligible gentlemen at her feet. But no one knows her shocking secret: she has never experienced the most intimate touch of any man. So she astonishes the ton by telling them the truth . . . and by announcing the auction of her virginity to the highest bidder.

Handsome and disciplined, Gabriel Huntford knows his time is best spent hunting down criminals from the darkest corners of London. As a Bow Street Runner investigating his sister's death, he has no desire to join London's strutting peacocks in this competition when there are more important tasks at hand.
Now, his quest leads him to one of Madeline's "suitors," so he agrees to help this sinful woman. But what begins as a business arrangement quickly turns into something more . . . and love blooms with a passion neither one expected.
