What was your favorite book to write?
The Virgin and the Viscount is my favorite book so far. One reason may be that it has no mustachio-twirling villain or villainess providing the external conflict. My other books tend to have avaricious relatives tightening the screws, but all the stress here comes from the hero’s preconceived notions about honor and his great fear of indulgence. It’s more realistic, with less melodrama, although I will probably always reach for a mustachio twirler given half the chance.
