Today we have a special guest to the blog! Jean Hart Stewart is the author of many books, but has a new release out – For Love Is New. In honor of this new book, she is doing a whirlwind virtual book tour. When I found out that she would be visiting my blog, I asked her why did she write this book at this time? Here’s her answer:
Why oh why did I wrote this particular book at this time? Delighted to answer, since For Love Is New means so much to me.
I’ve always adored historicals, ever since I got hooked on romances when I was thirteen. Pride and Prejudice is the book who grabbed me way back then (please don’t ask how many years ago because I refuse to answer) P and P is still my favorite book, and I look for unusual copies of it in used books stores whenever I get the chance.
Then I became enamored of King Arthur and Merlin. That interest is evident in my mage and druid books. But all the time I was writing those, I was doing off and on research on the Duke of Wellington and the Peninsular Wars. I have simply tons of research on that fascinating period. Eventually I started to wonder about Napoleon’s escape from Elba. It seems improbable he managed that escape and his return to power in France.
And there was my idea of this book. What about the British secret service? Were they doing anything to try to stop Napoleon? The diplomats refused to heed Wellington’s warnings. Was anybody in England paying attention? For Love is New is a love story between two people who are prying attention and try to stop him, and the villain they try to keep from getting money to Napoleon. My villain is the darkest I’ve ever written about. I mean, really, really bad.
You’ll hate him, but I hope love Christian and Juliet.

You may say to yourself, why do I want a copy of this book? Tell me more! Here’s the blurb from the back:
Lord Christian Cherne, recently invalided out of the Penninsular Army, is looking forward to the pleasures of London. He has one duty to discharge before he searches for a mistress. He must offer his protection to Lady Juliet Sloan. Paul Sloan was killed in battle, leaving Christian a horrifying letter of his sadistic treatment at the hands of Roger Gullis. To his dismay, Christian finds Gullis sitting in Lady Juliet’s parlor when he comes to call. All his plans must now concentrate on keeping Juliet safe. Christian further suspects Gullis of being a traitor and his fears for Juliet increase.
Juliet is attracted, but suspicious of which man is the traitor. As attraction between Juliet and Christian grows, Gullis turns cruelly vengeful.
Will Juliet and Christian be able to thwart Gullis’ plans to help bring Napoleon back to power, even as he finds wicked retribution for his rejection by the two lovers he has come to hate?
Now, I think this book sound pretty interesting, and it’s made my wish list 🙂
Jean loves to hear from her readers. She was recently chatting with Book Junkie, and when asked if she could ask her readers any question, what would it be? Her answer was: “Oh lordy, I’d like to ask them so much. Wish they’d go on line and tell me what they really like in romance fiction. Character, emotion, plot????? What makes you buy a book? Cover, blurb, word of mouth, price? I could go on and on, but will exert a little self-control her and stop. Just comment asking if the readers have any questions for me, OK? Love being interviewed, and enjoy feedback and getting to know a reader.”
