Author Interview with Suzanne Enoch

POSTED ON April 4, 2017 BY Austine IN Interview

Today we’re traveling to the Scottish Highlands with Suzanne Enoch, author of My One True Highlander! And she has 8 reasons for you to check out her newest release so keep reading! Plus there might just be a giveaway for you too!

All About Suzanne

You wrote a book! That’s pretty awesome. Why don’t you tell us a bit about what inspired My One True Highlander?

My One True Highlander is actually my 41st book. I’ve spent the last couple of years writing Scottish Historical romances, and I really enjoy the men, especially, as alpha heroes in a world that’s becoming more civilized. This one, especially, looks at the challenges facing a rough-and-tumble Highlands male thrust into the middle of domesticity.


Introduce us to your main character!

Graeme, Lord Maxton, is a chieftain in clan Maxwell. His clan is on the verge of warfare with the Duke of Lattimer, an Englishman who happens to be Graeme’s neighbor. The guardian of his three young brothers, he attempts to stay out of clan politics – until his brothers kidnap the Duke of Lattimer’s sister and drag him into the middle of an impossible situation.

Lady Marjorie Forrester thought she’d spend her life as a lady’s companion, until her brother unexpectedly inherited a dukedom in Scotland. As the sister to the new Duke of Lattimer she hoped to be accepted by the ton, but instead found herself ignored. Looking for an escape from London, she decides to surprise her brother with a visit to see him in Scotland – only to be kidnapped by three young hooligans and their arrogant oldest brother.


Alright, the ultimate question: why should we read your book?

I shall make my case in list form:

  • Scotland
  • Kilts
  • Humor
  • Romance
  • Animals
  • Children
  • Sex
  • Happily Ever After

Not necessarily in that order, because that would be weird.

About Suzanne Enoch

Suzanne was born in Southern California sometime in the latter half of the 20th century. In the way that some people are born knowing they want to be astronauts or cellists, Suzanne always knew she wanted to be a writer. Early dreams of becoming a zoologist and writing true stories about her adventures in Africa were crushed, however, after she viewed a television special about the world’s most poisonous snakes; she did NOT want to write about how she’d been bitten and lost a limb to a cobra. Thankfully at the same time the movie “Star Wars” premiered, and she realized that she could make up adventures and write about them, and not be eaten by deadly predators while doing research.

She dabbled in romantic fantasy writing for a year or two after graduating with a degree in English from the University of California, Irvine, until her affection for traditional Regency romances led her to write one for fun. After several encouraging rejections from publishers, she snared the interest of the world’s best and most patient literary agent, who advised her to revise the manuscript. This ultimately led to the publication of her first book, The Black Duke’s Prize, from Avon Books in the Spring of 1995. A second Regency, Angel’s Devil, followed that Fall.

When Avon folded its traditional Regency line, Suzanne was encouraged to try her hand at historical romance. As she remained keenly interested in England’s Regency period, she decided to attempt another manuscript set in that time. Lady Rogue hit the shelves in March of 1997. She wrote a total of 29 books for Avon, including two anthologies and a five-part contemporary series which received a pair of starred reviews from Publishers Weekly. One of those books, Twice the Temptation, was named one of the five best romances of the year by PW in 2007.

In 2002 her well-known love of all things “Star Wars” led to an invitation to appear on the E! channel in the television special “Star Wars: The Force Is Back”, where she discussed the romance in the movie series and ended up with more air time than George Lucas.

In 2010 Suzanne left Avon Books for St. Martin’s Press, where she continues to pen historical romance novels. Her 31st book, Taming an Impossible Rogue, is set to arrive in March 2012.

Suzanne is known for her humorous characters, sexy bad boys, and whip-sharp, witty dialogue. She currently resides in Placentia, California with several hundred guppies and various other tropical fish, and handful of very loud, spinach-loving finches. And her collection of action figures and statues from “Star Wars”, “Lord of the Rings”, “X-Men”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Everybody needs some inspiration, after all.

GOODREADS

Rugged highlander Graeme has one thing on his mind—take a stand against the horrible Englishman Lattimer and he will be rewarded with enough money to be set for life. But when his reckless younger brothers take it one step too far and kidnaps a young woman on her way to see Lattimer, Graeme has to intervene. He cannot send the lady back without his kin getting in trouble. And when a damsel this beautiful is dropped into your lap, it’s hard to let her go...

Marjorie should be terrified she’s been captured by highland scoundrels, but it’s hard to live in terror when your captor is a devilishly handsome and sinfully tempting as Graeme is. She cannot stay by his side forever—no matter how her heart may pound at the thought—but Graeme seems to have other plans. This wicked highlander is out to seduce her and doesn’t plan to stop until she’s in his arms...forever...
