MEET LIANA DE LA ROSA


Liana De La Rosa writes historical romance with a touch of spice.  Her stories are set in the Georgian and late Regency periods. She is a longtime fan of the romance genre, and can remember sneaking Harlequins into her bedroom to read on the sly. After her second child was born, her husband challenged her to write her own romance, and she’s been pulling all-nighters, slugging wine and perfecting her craft ever since!

When not writing witty heroes and saucy heroines, she is cheering her alma mater, the University of Arizona, and wrangling an increasing brood of small children with her patient husband.  Liana is also a wannabe domestic goddess and fashionista. Visit her at www.lianainbloom.com.




ONCE UPON A SCANDAL


Her debut novel, TO LOVE A SCANDALOUS DUKE, was published this past September by Entangled: Select Historical to critical acclaim.  It’s a well-written romance mystery about the Duke of Darington and his childhood friend, Lady Alethea Swinton. Declan Sinclair returns to England to discover his brother has been murdered and he is now the new Duke. Alethea agrees to help him. As family secrets are laid bare and long held mysteries revealed, the two find themselves falling in love.  But can their love survive the greatest scandal of all or will Declan choose vengeance over love?



TO RESIST A SCANDALOUS ROGUE, Book 2 in the series, is about Alethea’s twin brother, Finlay Swinton, Viscount Firthwell.  Finlay is determined to make a name for himself free of his father’s treacherous shadow. He prepares to stand for a contested Parliament seat, when he encounters the lovely young woman who ensnared his attention the year before and has haunted his memory since.  Widowed, penniless and desperate Charlotte Taylor has returned to England searching for stability. She takes a position teaching at a foundling home and relaxes into a predictable life, until she meets the man from her past who ignited her passions.  

  

The Latina Book Club wishes you a Happy Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day and many hours of joyful reading.
