Interview and Giveaway: Tammy Falkner - A Lady and Her Magic

Today I have author Tammy Falkner over for an interview, and at the end there will be a giveaway, and this time, open to all :)


Could you tell me a little about yourself? 
TF:  I am a mom of two boys, and have been married to the love of my life for almost twenty years.  I believe in the “happily-ever-after” and it’s why I write romance.  I am the quintessential sports mom, and will travel all over the place just to embarrass my boys from the benches.  I am not a sports fan, not when it comes to sports on TV.  But I LOVE school age sports.  My oldest is a wrestler and a football player, and my youngest is an aspiring gymnast.  One of my boys is almost 18 and the youngest is eight.  

Your book is called A Lady and Her Magic, could you tell me a few things about it?
TF:  Rules are made to be broken, and scandals are destined to be shocking.  The dangerous Duke of Robinsworth was rumored to have killed his wife, and his daughter was there when it happened.  Sophia is of the fae world, and her mission is helping Lady Anne, the duke’s troubled offspring.  Little does she know that her fate is not in her own hands when his melancholy piano playing draws her to his chambers in the dead of the night.  She can’t marry a human, nor can she fall in love with him, so she has no idea what to do with all the emotions that are shaking the serenity of her well-ordered world.  

You have written about werewolves and vampires. What about the magic here then?
TF:  I love vampires and Lycans, and might write more of them one day.  I like fantasy and paranormal.  I like to suspend reality when I read, and be taken to meet people I would never encounter.  Magic in this story is one more reason why the hero and heroine can’t be together.  It also makes for some interesting happenings as the garden gnomes step into the picture, as well as the shimmering dust that paints pictures of real life.  You’ll find out more about fae magic when you read the book, but I had fun making the world!

The hero is a man rumored to have killed his wife. Was it hard to make a love story out of this?
TF:  Not at all!  Everyone loves a rakish hero. Ashley is tortured every day for his wife’s death, for which he does feel responsible. It’s not until he finds someone worthy of pulling him out of seclusion that he attempts to rejoin society.  It’s too bad she can’t accept what he has to offer.

What’s coming next from you?
TF:  In November, Ava Stone and I (writing as Lydia Dare) have a release called WOLFISHLY YOURS.  And then I have the next installment in the fae series.  The next one is the story of Claire Thorne, Sophia’s younger sister and the Duke of Robinsworth’s younger brother, Lord Phineas.  

What makes paranormal historical romance so fun to write?
TF: Like I mentioned, I like to be taken out of the mundane when I read for pleasure.  I like the ball gowns and the lords and ladies, and feeling like I’m in a world filled with handsome gentlemen and beguiling ladies.  Add some garden gnomes, some faerie dust, and some glittery wings, and I’m in heaven.


1 copy of A Lady and Her Magic

1. Open to ALL
2. Ends Sep 20th
3. The rules are simple, just enter :)

But do be free to ask questions, comment or tell me what you think about the Fae....


Rules Are Made to be Disobeyed...
Sophia Thorne is new to the Regency's glittering high society, which resembles her magical homeland only insofar as both places are filled with ridiculous rules. Which means no matter where she goes, she's bound for trouble...

And Scandals Are Meant to be Shocking...
The Duke of Robinsworth has flaunted and shocked society for years. In a moment of fateful mischief, Robinsworth encounters the enchanting and distinctly scandalous Sophia. Between her streak of magical mischief and his penchant for scandal, they're about to take rule-breaking to a whole new level...

As half of the Lydia Dare writing team, Tammy Falkner has co-written ten books, including A Certain Wolfish Charm and In the Heat of the Bite. A huge fan of Regency England, her new series explores the theory that the fae can walk between the glittering world of the ton and their own land. Tammy lives on a farm in rural North Carolina with her husband and a house full of boys, a few dogs, and a cat or two. For more information, please visit and follow her on Twitter, @TFalkner.
