Sealed With a Kiss Event with Samantha Grace


RITA-nominated historical romance author, Samantha Grace, discovered the appeal of a great love story at the age of four, thanks to Disney’s “Robin Hood”. She didn’t care that Robin Hood and Maid Marian were cartoon animals. It was her first happily-ever-after experience, and she didn’t want the warm fuzzies to end. Now that Samantha is grown, she enjoys creating her own happy-endings for characters that spring from her imagination. Publisher’s Weekly describes her stories as “fresh and romantic” with subtle humor and charm. Samantha describes romance writing as the best job ever. Part-time medical social worker, moonlighting author, and Pilates nut, she enjoys a happy and hectic life with her real life hero and two kids in the Midwest.


It’s a celebration of love!!! What a fantastic event for romance lovers everywhere! I’m so happy to be here today to chat about my favorite topic, amour, and to introduce you to the hero and heroine from my latest story, RESISTING ROMEO. This long novella can be found in the limited edition boxed set Once Upon a Regency, releasing February 5th.

Here is a little background on my characters and their love letters: Claudine Bellerose is an accomplished French actress who has written her first play, and it is about to be performed for the first time. Earlier, an accident left her without a leading man, so Russell Hawke, the small playhouse owner, stepped into the role. The couple began their relationship at odds, but they have fallen in love and recently declared their feelings for one another. Russell has just slipped his love letter beneath Claudine’s dressing room door. Should we read over Claudine’s shoulder? I don’t think she will mind.


Check out Claudine and Russell's love story in Resisting Romeo, featured in the Once Upon a Regency Box Set.


Join us on a Regency adventure of love and romance in the limited edition box set Once Upon A Regency: Timeless Tales And Fables!

French actress and aspiring playwright Claudine Bellerose recently closed the curtains on a bad romance and has returned to center stage at a small London playhouse where she is about to premiere her first production. Enter Russell Hawke, the new owner of the Drayton Theatre, to deliver disturbing news. If Claudine’s play doesn’t turn a profit, he’ll have no choice except to close the theatre. To further complicate matters, her leading man just suffered an accident and can’t perform. Russell is confident he is capable of stepping in to star opposite the lovely Claudine, but she quickly realizes his horrible acting is threatening to turn her romantic play into a farce. Her only option is to tutor him in his role, and hope she can resist the charms of this handsome Romeo.

    1. Hi, Joanne.
      When I'm not writing, I'm open to reading just about anything. Usually, it's something contemporary, though. I just discovered billionaire romance novels and had a blast reading them. They were quick, sexy reads. I also love mystery and suspense, and stories about smaller communities. What about you? What is your favorite genre to read?

      Delete
    2. Well, discovered isn't really the correct word. Lots of readers have been reading billionaire books for a long time. :)
