Here is some inside information from Jean about todays book “No Cure for Love”;

No Cure for Love. Is set in Victorian East London and features the lovely red-haired Irish heroine Ellen O’Casey. With a voice and face of an angel Ellen attracts Doctor Robert Munroe who falls for her the moment he sees her. Unfortunately, she also catches the eye of Danny Donavan, the head a criminal gang whose motives aren’t so honourable. As Ellen and Robert fall in love they must battle not only the social gulf that divides them but also the deadly danger of crossing Danny Donavan.

You’ll fall in love with Ellen O’Casey, an Irish Catholic immigrant, is struggling to support her ailing mother, her teenage daughter and herself. Washing other people’s laundry in the day, and singing in bawdy pubs at night, Ellen is determined to make a better life for her family by saving enough for the passage to New York where the rest of her extended family have already emigrated. But Danny Donovan, a local gangster and the landlord of the pubs where Ellen sings, intends to make her his mistress. A widow in her late 20s, Ellen has refused to let another man in her life, least of all the brutish Danny, whose advances she doggedly resists.

Guest Author Victoria Steele answers my questions

Today my guest is Victoria Steele, she has recently read fellow guest author Stephanie Hurt’s books, you can find Stephanie’s replies to the guest blog questions at http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-dv best wishes for your own book.

1) Tell me your name: My name is V. Steele

2) Where do you live? I live in the southern United States.

3)When did you start writing? I started writing several years ago, but after a couple of people read my work and liked it only recently decided to publish my first book.

4)What type of books do you like writing the most? Romance is the genre I write in. I love the paranormal and especially vampires. It’s exciting to imagine a handsome vampire falling in love with a beautiful mortal woman.

5)Pass on 3 tips about writing or publishing. I guess if I had some tips for others they would be always let others read your work before publishing, be very descriptive when writing, it drives up the interest and lastly go the extra mile with any scene whether it be a sex scene or just a casual dinner.

6)What was the last book that you read? How would you rate it? A Love Never Lost by: Stephanie Payne Hurt. I found her on Twitter and decided to look up her books. This one caught my eye. I liked the cover image and have actually interacted with her about how she achieved that picture variation. A cover is very important in publishing. The book itself is very intriguing. It spans a lot of different scenarios from romance to suspense. Once I got into the story, I had to keep reading to find out what happened. I give it a five star rating. This book was the second of her books I’ve read. I read a lot so I have several others in line, but I do plan to read some more of her work.

7)Now choose just one of your books and add a link to it. I choose of course the only one I have currently published which is “Sweet Innocence” the first book in the “My Prodigy” series. http://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Innocence-My-Prodigy-ebook/dp/B00AYLNCE6
