Two Truths and a Lie—about the author
Thank you for hosting me today in connection with the release of my newest historical romance, SECRETS OF A SCANDALOUS HEIRESS. It features a wily heroine pretending to be someone else, a mixed-race hero hunting his cousin’s blackmailer, and—of course!—a happily-ever-after once Joss and Augusta begin to help each other and reveal their true selves.
I’m here to tell you a little about myself. But in the spirit of a historical romance full of so many secrets and scandals, I’ll fudge the truth a little. I’m not a very scandalous person (except in my own imagination), so these truths—or are they truths??—are on the lighter side. Two statements are true, and one is a lie. See if you can pick it out and leave a comment below on which one you think is the lie!
1. Rarely do I order dessert at a restaurant. But if it has coconut in it, I almost certainly will. I am a fiend for coconut. On the other hand, I can’t stand chocolate cake and will never choose it on a menu.
2. I don’t follow any sports with much attention, so it’s pretty surprising that the one time—the one time¬—I went to a sports bar (hey, I was humoring a football-fan friend), I met my future husband.
3. I am originally from Louisiana, and my grandparents’ first language was French. Sadly, they didn’t teach it to me. But I have picked up on lots of Cajun food traditions and can peel crawfish like nobody’s business.

One good proposition deserves another...
Heiress Augusta Meredith can't help herself-she stirs up gossip wherever she goes. A stranger to Bath society, she pretends to be a charming young widow, until sardonic, darkly handsome Joss Everett arrives from London and uncovers her charade.
Augusta persuades Joss to keep her secret in exchange for a secret of his own. Weaving their way through the treacherous pitfalls of a polite world only too eager to expose and condemn them, they begin to see that being true to themselves is not so bad...as long as they're true to each other...

Historical romance author Theresa Romain pursued an impractical education that allowed her to read everything she could get her hands on. She then worked for universities and libraries, where she got to read even more. Eventually she started writing, too. She lives with her family in the Midwest, where she is working on her next book.
