Carole Mortimer: Checking In!

We are currently having a heat-wave in the UK! Not my favorite thing, I have to admit. I’m more of a snow person than a sun-worshipper, which is a little odd because my birth sign is Leo, and we’re supposed to love the sun. Guess, in my case, someone got that wrong!

2016 is proving to be a very busy year book-wise for me. So far I’ve had a book out every month, and my publishing schedule looks as if I will have a book out every month for the rest of the year too. Not that I’m complaining—I love writing romances, contemporary and Regency, all with the added excitement of lots of steam and suspense in the storyline.

Pursued by the Viscount, book 4 in the Regency Unlaced Series, was released on May 27th. I have been absolutely overwhelmed by how popular this series is, constantly in the Top100 bestselling charts. I’m so pleased, because I really enjoy writing this super sexy Regency romantic suspense series. I love doing the research for this series. The Regency period is one of my favorite times in history. Such a short period of time, 1811-1820, but so exciting too, with the war against Napoleon, his surrender and banishment to Elba in 1814, his escape, and then recapture and incarceration on St Helena. Plenty of scope there for exciting Regency heroes and heroines!

Desired by a Lord (Regency Unlaced 5) is now available for pre-order and will be released on July 22nd. Captured by a Gentleman (Regency Unlaced 6) will be available for pre-order soon, with a release date of August 31st. There will be more books in this series in 2016.

June sees the start of my new contemporary Romantic Suspense series Knight Security, with the release of Defying Asher on June 30th. This book is now available for pre-order. The introductory novella to this series, Resisting Alexandre (Knight Security 0.5) – and previously published as “Alexandre”, in the Royals & Rogues anthology with 5 other bestselling authors – will also be published June 30th. So keep an eye out for the pre-order to this novella, because it features the first explosive, and unforgettable, meeting between the hero and heroine of Defying Asher.
The Knight Security series is a spin-off of the #1 bestselling Alpha series. A chance to meet old friends and make new ones!

As always, the stories in my Regency Unlaced, Alpha, and Knight Security series, are all romances, but with more explicit language and sexual content than my other books. In other words, they’re hot!
