Greetings my peeps. Everyone curtsy and bow.
Peep Rep: Why?
Liza: Because we are interviewing a Regency era book today: The Seduction of Lady Phoebe.
Peep Rep: I think you mean you are interviewing the author, Ella Quinn.
Liza: Wrong again Peep Rep. I am interviewing the book. I had planned to interview Ella, but my questions proved too disturbing, so she sent her book to be interviewed.
Peep Rep: I seriously doubt she meant for her book to be interviewed.
Liza: Why not? It's a perfectly lovely book.
Peep Rep: You're completely bonkers.
Liza: Enough from the cheap seats. It is my honor to present my guest today, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe.
Liza: Welcome to my blog. May I call you Sed?
Book: I beg your pardon. Are you speaking to me?
Liza: Yes. Your name is a bit long, may I call you Sed during our interview?
Book: You wish to interview me? I say, that is most unusual.
Peep Rep: Welcome to my world.
Liza: I only have one rule: No talking to Peep Rep.
Book: What is a Peep Rep?
Liza: My democratic peeps have elected a representative to speak for them.
Book: Very well, I will contain my responses to you alone. But I'd prefer to be called Lady Phoebe.
Liza: You are a gentlebook, for sure. However, I don't want my peeps to think you are one of your characters. So here are your choices: Book, Sed or Seduction.
Book: Why can't I have Lady Phoebe. It's part of my title.
Liza: Book, Sed, or Seduction.
Book: But I've been called Lady Phoebe for two years.
Liza: All right. You can be called Lady Phoebe, but you are the book, not the character. Do you understand?
Lady Phoebe, the book: Of course.
Liza: Well, Lady Phoebe, the book, I notice you arrived with letters of recommendation.
Lady Phoebe, the book: Indeed I have. My dear friends have been kind enough to offer to help introduce me to the world.

Ella Quinn’s The Seduction of Lady Phoebe is a passionate tale full of humor, romance, and poignancy. Quinn writes classic Regency romance at its best!”
Liza: Most impressive. Can you tell us a bit about yourself.
Lady Phoebe, the book: Well, I am to have my come out during the Little Season. My ball is set for September 19th. I am one of three books that my author has created under the banner: The Marriage Game.
Liza: I like her already. What about the troll. What's he like?
Can Phoebe learn to trust her own heart and Marcus? Or is she destined to remain alone?
Liza: Don't ask me. I haven't read it yet.
Lady Phoebe, the book: No, of course not. I forget you cannot know what I hold within my bindings. I assure you it is a question that quite worried me. Lord Marcus was not at all the thing when he and Lady Phoebe Stanhope met.
Liza: Well, we might see for ourselves if you'll let us peek beneath your covers...
Last week in August, 1814, Cranbourne Place, England
She greeted her brother, Geoffrey, the sixth Earl of Cranbourne. “Good morning.”
When he looked up from his news sheet and met her gaze, Phoebe saw the fatigue etched in his face.
Grinning, Phoebe said, “I am sure he would have appreciated the advice.”
After pouring a cup of tea, Amabel asked Phoebe, “When do you leave for Town?”
She swallowed a piece of toast. “Next week.”
“I do wish I could go with you,” Amabel said.
Her sister-in-law pulled a face. “But they are so dry.”
Her sister-in-law’s mouth dropped open in shock. “You cannot mean that!”
“I am well aware of my age,” Phoebe said as mildly as she could. “I’m not on the shelf yet.”
After taking a sip of tea, Amabel said airily, “I have invited my brother to visit us.”
Phoebe creased her brows. “Evesham? I thought he was too ill to travel.”
Amabel hesitated before continuing, “He needs to marry now, and I immediately thought of you.”
Liza: That was a delightful peek. Can you show us more.
Lady Phoebe, the book: I fear not. A book must never share too much, or no one will buy it. However, my authoress has other excerpts she has allowed other lady reporters to publish. If you would like, you may discover more by visiting them.
Liza: Well, I'll definitely be buying you.
Lady Phoebe, the book: Thank you so very much.
Here are the links to pre-order:
Lady Phoebe, the book: It was not as bad as I feared. To reward your 'peeps' for enduring your, dare I say, silliness, I wish to offer a copy of myself when it is released to one lucky commenter who leaves their email address.
Peep Rep: Oh yes! I dearly want to win your book.
Liza: Well, you know what to do to get it.
Peep Rep: Leave a meaningful message and my email address so Ella can find me.
Liza: I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous, because I want this book as well. I like everything I've heard and seen about this book. It's becoming a compulsion!
This is the part of the cover I like best:
Liza: I could stare at that all night and day.
Please leave comments for me, Lady Phoebe, the book, or Ella. We'd love to hear from you.
Peep Rep: What about me?
Liza: No leaving comments for Peep Rep. But a comment to Ella or her book and your email address will put you in the running for The Seduction of Lady Phoebe, which I expect to be a best seller. While Ella will let you know soon who has won the fabulous gift, she cannot send it to you until it is released. But it is without questions a gift worth waiting for.
