A princess who had it all.
A lord with everything to lose.
Lords of Essex #2
Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan
Releasing March 27, 2017
Entangled Select Historical

Lord Graham Findlay, the shamelessly virile Viscount Northridge, has a
disgraceful secret, one he’ll do anything to hide. Holding his passions at bay,
Gray has sworn off the fairer sex. But when temptation comes in the form of an
intriguing woman he cannot easily avoid, Gray’s integrity—and his most depraved
desires—are put to the ultimate test.
Self-assured and carefree Princess Svetlanka Volkonsky never dreamed she would
one day become a lady’s maid to avoid a dangerous traitor. But danger also
comes in many guises, especially in the sinful and devastatingly attractive
lord of the manor who introduces her to a world of singular pleasure.When Lana’s past emerges to threaten the life and the false identity she’s
built in England, she and Gray find themselves falling into a tangled web of
lies and intrigue…and the last place either of them expected to fall…in


Describe yourself in five words or less.

AMALIE: Creative, fun-loving, humorous, passionate, free-spirited.

ANGIE: Relaxed, creative, inquisitive, cheerful, active

Can you tell us a little about your book?

MY DARLING, MY DISASTER is a fun, sexy story about an arrogant young lord who meets his match in a runaway princess disguised as his sister’s lady’s maid. There’s mystery, suspense, action, and buckets of sizzling romantic tension.

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

AMALIE: Journey’s DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’…seriously, it’s my personal anthem. Also, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY by Queen when I’m feeling saucy.

ANGIE: HAIR UP by Justin Timberlake from the movie TROLLS should play from magical speakers whenever I enter a room.

Name one thing you won’t leave home without.

AMALIE: My phone. I can work while waiting for my kids at various activities. That, and pants. I never leave home without pants. Because that would be awkward. And maybe scary for some.

ANGIE: There is NOTHING I won’t leave home without. Trust me. I’ve left home without my purse, my phone, my CHILD. Just kidding. I usually remember them all. But I do always remember to put a bra on. #goals

What are some books that you enjoyed recently?

AMALIE: Two recent historical romance books I really enjoyed were THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE by Jennifer Ashley, and WILD WICKED SCOT by Julia London. They’re both very different, but the writing in each is sublime.

ANGIE: I loved THE ALIENIST by Caleb Carr and am so excited for the TV series starring Luke Evans coming up soon! I thought PROMISE OF FIRE by Amanda Bouchet was a really fun romantic fantasy. Right now I’m reading BARED TO YOU by Sylvia Day and I’m constantly blushing.

What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

AMALIE: I’m an obsessive/compulsive reader. Sometimes, on a reading binge of a particular genre, I can read a book a night for weeks at a time. I also like to watch movies. I’m a very visual person, and films are my guilty pleasure. Put it this way, I’ve already seen Beauty and the Beast twice and it only opened two days ago on Friday. I saw Deadpool at least a handful of times in the theaters and bought the Blu-Ray, and let’s not even talk about The Force Awakens. Anything Marvel can take my money. I’m super excited for Ghost in the Shell and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2. #DIEHARDFANGIRL.

ANGIE: I make sure writing happens almost every day, and I’m usually working on more than one project at a time. But on my off-hours, I’m a school volunteer, a chauffeur for my daughters and their friends (unfortunately, there’s no bus transportation for our small school!), my town’s official crazy chicken lady, a freelance editor for Independent authors, a long distance runner, and — whenever I get the chance to sit down — an avid reader.

Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?

First of all, don’t be afraid to write what you love, and have confidence in your ideas.  For any new writer, we would encourage reading as many books as you can get your hands on—the more you read (especially books that have been successful in the genre), the more you’ll understand the elements required to pen an equally successful novel of your own. Reading outside of the romance genre will broaden your scope, too. The most important piece of advice though is just to keep writing, keep trying, and keep reading.
