Today I am excited to welcome back to RFTC author Maya Rodale. I can't profess my love of Maya's books enough and I'm so happy that she's able to join me for the release of her newest book, Seducing Mr. Knightly. Please give Maya a warm welcome.
Maya Rodale began reading romance novels in college at her mother’s insistence. She is now the author of numerous “dazzlingly sexy and witty” historical romance novels. A champion of the romance genre and it’s readers, she is also the author of the non-fiction book Dangerous Books For Girls: The Bad Reputation Of Romance Novels, Explained and a co-founder of Lady Jane’s Salon, a national reading series devoted to romantic fiction. Maya lives in New York City with her darling dog and a rogue of her own.

Dear Annabelle solves the problem of lovelorn heroines
I am trapped in a haunted castle with two men: a wickedly seductive ghost who is promising me an eternity of pleasure, and the delectably handsome, wonderfully kind and in all other ways completely perfect man who doesn't have any idea that I have loved him for years. What should I do?!
Bea Sinclaire from Captive Bride (A Regency Ghost Novel)
Oh, can I ever relate to the anguish of loving an unsuspecting gentleman for years. Literally: years. Indeed, though he knows me as one of his “Writing Girls” at the newspaper he owns Mr. Knightly has, alas, remained utterly oblivious to my undying affection.
That is, until I embarked on an audacious scheme to make him notice me. After so many years of his obliviousness to my affections, I decided that before I “settled” and accepted the hand of Mr. Smythe, the baker up the road, I ought to make my feelings known to Mr. Knightly.
Thus, I suggest that you let your true feelings be known.
Given the romantic novels I am fond of reading, I am given to understand that even if you forgo an eternity of pleasure, with the right man many earthly pleasures await. How can you lose?

What are some of your favorite scenes from books, movies or real life where the hero or heroine confesses their love?
He’s the only man she’s ever loved…
For ages it seems advice columnist Annabelle Swift has loved Derek Knightly, editor-owner of The London Weekly from a distance. Determined to finally attract her employer’s attention, she seeks advice from her loyal readers—who offer Annabelle myriad suggestions…from lower-cut bodices (success!) and sultry gazes (disaster!) to a surprise midnight rendezvous (wicked!).
She’s the only woman he’s never noticed…
Derek never really took note of his shy, wallflower lady writer. But suddenly she’s exquisite…and he can’t get Annabelle out of his mind! She must be pursuing someone, but who? For some inexplicable reason, the thought of her with another man makes Knightly insanely jealous.
Will Dear Annabelle find her happy ending?
But Knightly’s scandalous periodical has been targeted for destruction by a vengeful Lord Marsden, and the beleaguered editor now faces a devastating choice: either marry Marsden’s sister to save his beloved newspaper…or follow his heart and wed his Writing Girl.
