Today Richard, the Earl Blackthorn from author Kristi Jun’s Sinful Ladies of London Series sits down with us for an interview.
What was your life like before your author started pulling your strings?
My life had been just the way l liked it, despite the mission I spied for the Home Office and the Regent. I’d rather face a pistol than the torture this author put me though.
What’s the one trait you like most about yourself?
My honor, my word.
What do you like least about yourself?
Impatience. My penchant for solitude. Often, in Society, I find myself suffocating amongst the ton.
What is the strangest thing your author has had you do or had happen to you?
Drink to the point of allowing stupidity to dictate my behavior.
Do you argue with your author? If so, what do you argue about?
She somehow believes that I am worthy of love and that I have a lot to contribute to the opposite sex other than sex. She insists that I can accomplish her goals if I simply tried harder. I believe she is gravely mistaken on both accounts.
What is your greatest fear?
Allowing Miss Knight into to my life.
What makes you happy?
To see Miss Knight smile.
If you could rewrite a part of your story, what would it be? Why?
Actually, I can’t say I would want to rewrite the story because her insistence has allowed me to see that I do indeed adore Miss Knight.
Of the other characters in your book, which one bugs you the most? Why?
Sir Kendall. He is a coward and a bully who manipulates those around him to get what he wants.
Of the other characters in your book, which one would you love to trade places with? Why?
My brother, Max. He was all that was good in this world and he deserves happiness.
Tell us a little something about your author. Where can readers find her website/blog?
She is, I would conclude, brave, courageous, and she was right about me. I do have something to offer Mrs. Knight. It took guts to take a chance in us, in me, despite my grave resistance. You can find her online at www.kristijun.com.
What's next for you?
Sinful Kiss (Book 2 of Sinful Ladies of London) will be available later this summer.
