Title: A LADY’S PAST
Author: A.S. Fenichel
Publisher: Kensington Books/Lyrical Press
Genre: Historical Romance
The greatest risk—for the sweetest reward…
His fiancée’s betrayal nearly cost Jacques Laurent everything. Despite his resolve not to trust anyone again, he can’t abandon the young woman he finds alone on the road to London. In the brief hours they spend together, the enigmatic Diana touches his heart in a way he can’t explain. Even after bringing her to the Everton Domestic Society for safekeeping, he can’t get her out of his thoughts. And when he next encounters her, working as assistant to a renowned scientist, he becomes even more intrigued…
The Society’s kindness is especially welcome after everything Diana endured in a French prison, but she fears for the safety of those who get close to her. French spies are on her trail, convinced that her scientific knowledge can help them win the war. As peril draws them irrevocably together, Diana and Jacques succumb to mutual desire. But love may be the most dangerous pursuit of all, when a lady guards her heart even more carefully than she guards her life . . .

- What is on your nightstand?
Glasses, a journal, a pen… Oh, do you mean, what am I reading? I just finished Nancy Harkness’s Time’s Convert yesterday. It was really good. I finished Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore on Tuesday… FABULOUS and I’m reading two books now: The Heartbreak Cowboy by Mina Beckett and The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.
- What author would you totally fan?
I rarely fangirl. I got a bit giddy when I met C.L. Wilson. She was lovely and very down to earth, but I love her books to pieces and may have been a bit overzealous to meet her in person. AND she traded me a book. Squeeee… I’ve been lucky enough to have met a lot of my favorite authors: Eloisa James, Mary Jo Putney. I might get silly if I ever meet Jude Devereaux.
- What makes you cringe?
I’m pretty open minded. If the writing is great, I’ll forgive most faux pas. I’m not a huge fan of first person, but when well done, I can ignore it. I also don’t like head hopping (going from one point of view to another mid scene). I feel like this is cheating. There are so many ways to show what a character is feeling without having to jump into his head and confusing the reader.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I do a rough plotting and make a list of scenes. The plotting shows me why each scene is necessary for the continued forward movement of the story and reminds me of plot points I need to fit in. The list of scenes keeps me on track for my deadlines.
I don’t obsess about my outline. Sometimes the characters do unexpected things and the scenes change or an extra scene pops up that is clearly needed. I will go with the flow if it makes a better story. Besides, I can’t make the characters do anything that is not in them naturally.
- Is there a word you love to use?
“Indeed” I love it when historical characters are sarcastic but polite. LOL
