Friday Fast 5 with Alanna Lucas

April 24, 2015

Today I welcome historical romance writer Alanna Lucas to the Friday Fast 5!

What is on the top of your to be read pile?

Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey– love those Malory’s!

How do you overcome writer’s block?

Vacuum. It solves two problems at once 😉

If you were stranded on a desert island and could chose any famous person (living or dead), who would you chose to be stranded with you and why?

Leonardo da Vinci. He would probably be able to invent something to get us off the desert island. If it were a beautiful tropical island, my answer would be different because I wouldn’t want to leave 😉

What is your favorite part of writing?

Researching! Which is also the most distracting part.

What advice would you give new authors?

Never give up! Oh, and have fun 🙂

Don’t Miss Face to Face

Face to FaceA masquerade, a chance meeting, and a kidnapping: Little did Miss Penelope Ashurst realize that breaking the rules would result in the adventure—and love—of a lifetime.


One night. That’s all Miss Penelope Ashurst wants away from the strict decorum of Regency society. Donning a mask and attending a forbidden masquerade, she meets the man of her dreams. Then, before she discovers his identity, she is kidnapped.


From their first encounter, his goddess in a golden mask stirs a deep and different longing within Ranulph, the Earl of Monfort. When she disappears, he vows he will find her no matter the cost.


Soon it’s a race against time, and the kidnappers are just the start. Penelope and Ranulph’s very lives are in jeopardy. Before the end, everything will be stripped away, and Penelope and Ranulph will be more than just face-to-face. But this is true love, and nothing will stop it.

    Cute, fun interview. Alana if Da Vinci were really as cute as the guy on the Starz series you might not want him to leave either.

    Congrats on the release! Looks great.
