When it comes to historical romances, New York Times bestseller Sarah MacLean is an author to watch. In addition to being a bestseller and two-time RITA Award-winner, Sarah also writes a monthly column at The Washington Post celebrating the best of the romance genre. Booklist calls her a "literary supernova," while The New Yorker states she "has reignited the genre with a bolder edge." Her books entrance, entertain, and sizzle with delicious relationships, period details, and characters that will forever hold a special place in your heart.
The Day of the Duchess is the final book in her Scandal and Scoundrel series, which combines the celebrity gossip magazines of today with Regency-era London. I've been a huge fan of Sarah's novels since her Rule of Scoundrels series (No Good Duke Goes Unpunished and Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover were LibraryReads picks), so I was incredibly excited to have the opportunity to sit down with Sarah to hear about her upcoming novel and her thoughts on the romance genre.
Watch the interview below to get a sneak peek at the forthcoming novel, learn how she got started writing romance, and why romance is such a great genre to read.
