Five Things Tammy Falkner Loves about Writing Paranormal Historical Romance — guest blog and giveaway

 

Top 5 Things I Love About Writing Paranormal Historical Romance

 

  1. I get to break the rules.  I’m not a rule breaker by definition. But I do get to break some of the Regency rules with my paranormal historical heroines.  My heroines can be a little feistier, since they’re magical, after all.  They might not know how to dress, since they’re from a different world. So, if they have a flounce that’s out of place, or their hair isn’t perfectly styled for the period, I can get away with it.
  2. My human heroes can be shocked by their behavior.  My Regency heroes are all gentlemen, and while they’re up for some under-the-covers scandalous behavior of their own, they don’t typically flout society. But my magical heroes and heroines might, simply because they don’t know any better.
  3. I get to make up my own magic.  Let’s face it.  Not a lot of people write about faeries.  So, I get to make up their powers without readers having any preconceived notions about what they can and can’t do. It’s a lot of fun building the world and giving them powers within it.
  4. I get to use the Regency world.  I love Regency books. I love the clothing. I love the street scenes and the fancy balls.  I love the furniture and the way of speaking.  When I write Regency paranormals, I get to incorporate all the things I love about the Regency into the book.
  5. I still get to have carriage sex.   Seriously, is there anything better?

When These Worlds Collide…

Cecelia Hewitt has lived her whole life in the land of the fae, and she dreams of a future with her childhood sweetheart, Marcus Thorne. When Marcus is called upon to dwell in the human world, it means leaving Cecelia behind and breaking both their hearts…

 

More Than Sparks May Fly…

Marcus was groomed for leadership in the land of the fae, but now that he has found his human parents, he will inherit his father’s title and position in the British ton—and he will marry a human. As love and passion continue to burn between Cecelia and Marcus, the question remains: Can two people fated for different worlds find one to share?

    I have to agree Magical beings mixing it up in various periods especially regency era is some of the best stuff I enjoy reading. ^ ^ and this is definitively on my TBR list.

    Love tammy falkner!
    Love every book she has ever written!
    When reading her books she never goes for the norm, she makes her own world and love that is timeless and cant be matched!

  3. Those are really great reasons to put aside YA and contemporary and pick up something different. We can all use a bit of magic in our lives.

  4. Interesting reasons
