Today we have Karen Erickson on for My Favorite Things!
First, a big thank you to Candace for having me! I’m excited to be a part of the My Favorite Things Event. I have so many favorite things, you see, but today I want to take about historical romances…
My first historical romance novella came out Monday with Carina Press. Lessons In Indiscretion is part of The Merry Widow series and, well, I love the idea of a widow finding love again. Or maybe even for the first time. And I especially love it within the confines of a historical setting.
There are just so many rules and expectations and obligations within English society. Heaven forbid you break one rule – you’re ruined for life. So I love reading about a couple who goes against all odds and breaks every rule in the book. Or at least bends them in their favor. *wink*
I love writing about them, too. Garrett and Julia in Lessons In Indiscretion both set out to obtain what they want despite what society expects of them. Julia wants a secret affair while Garrett believes he’s found the perfect lady to take as his wife — and she’s a widow. Oh, the scandal! I love scandal.
Here’s the lovely book trailer for Lessons In Indiscretion:

Description for Lessons in Indiscretion:
First in The Merry Widow series…Widowed Lady Julia Renwick is still young enough to crave a man’s touch; but she’s too old to think that the Earl of Bedingfield could see her as anything more than a family friend. Garrett Walker is handsome, charming and only 26 years old—the perfect catch for any one of this year’s debutantes.
Garrett has no interest in the maidens vying for his attentions. He wants only Julia. With just two weeks left in the season, he makes a bold move by asking her to dance. When she counters with a shocking request of her own, Garrett eagerly agrees.
Soon, they are stealing away for passionate encounters at every society event they attend. Garrett introduces Julia to excitements she never knew existed, and her newfound confidence quickly attracts other eligible men. It’s not long before Garrett realizes he must find a way to keep the lady all to himself…
