Welcome historical romance author, Terri Rochenski...

 Thrilled to welcome my online from Terri Rochenski to my blog today - hi, Terri! I recently took part in Terri's release party and had a fab time. Wishing you all the best with future success and sales, lovely lady! Let's start with my questions...

1)   Did you set any goals for 2015?

My alter ego, Lynn Burke, has one Risso Family novella release in Feb with Evernight Publishing and 3 other novellas planned of which two are written.

My real name ME!!! needs to get busy on rewriting / editing Love’s Pardon, Means of Mercy #3 which is scheduled for a Jan 2016 release.

While I’d love to throw in a few more shorts & novellas, I’m keeping my goal right there. Attainable for a stay-at-home mom of 3!

2)   How long does it take you to write a 50,000-60,000 word manuscript?

Funny question right there. It took me over 12 years to finish up Love’s Sorrow and Love’s Revenge. BUT ‘Lynn’ is able to pump out a 15k contemporary, spicy romance in two weeks. Go figure.

3)   Tell us about a new author you’ve recently discovered

While I’ve been cyber ‘frieinds’ with Vonnie Davis for a long time now, I’ve just recently read one of her titles – A Highlander’s Obsession. All I can say is WOW. Great story. Great characters. The type of book you finish, and immediately check Amazon to see if the next title is out yet.

4)   Name two romances you’ve read more than once

All of Roni Loren’s books. (MAJOR guilty pleasure right there!!!) All of Keri Lake’s. (NOT for the faint of heart) All of J.A. Belfield’s. Ok. That’s way more than two, but I can’t help but shout out about my fav authors!!

5)   Tell us about your first car

A ’70 Dodge Dart – plum-crazy purple HOTROD! (My Pop & older brother restore cars.)

6)   Tell us something you’ve lied about?

Since keeping secrets is ‘lying’ – I found out the sex of my 2nd child at 20 weeks prego and didn’t tell the hubs. Sneaky, I know. SOOOOOO I had to go and do the same thing with baby #3. hehehe

7)   Kissing in public? Yes or no?

Oh, hell yes!! While I don’t want to see groping or slobbering all over faces, I don’t mind a somewhat heated smooch from the hubs—or watching others. 

Title:  Love’s Revenge (Means of Mercy #2)
Author:  Terri Rochenski
Publisher:  Roane Publishing
Release Date:  January 26, 2015
Keywords:  Sweet, Historical Romance, Series

Embittered by betrayal, Anne MacKay flees London for America, where she learns she's pregnant with her abusive husband’s longed-for heir. In a society that doesn’t protect, or afford a well-to-do wife’s desire for divorce, Anne decides there is one way to exact revenge: deny the father any knowledge of his child.

Sought after by her husband’s henchmen, Anne travels by rail and horseback, far from civilization where silk and stays are worn, let alone thought of. Lies and deceit protect her identity for a time, allowing her to birth—and grow to love—the child who was supposed to be her vengeance.

 With the help of her loyal and protective business partner, Jude Connagher, and the ranch hands in their Montana Territory valley, Anne attempts to rebuild her life under the shadow of her husband’s wrath.

 One unwise decision lands Anne in her pursuers’ clutches, tearing her from the ranch, her child, and her growing love for the one man who could redeem her from bitterness. She's left with no choice but to finally face her husband, knowing her freedom and life hang in the balance.

Purchase Links

Digital (eBook)

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.
Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
