AND, Victoria will be giving away a copy of each book from the comments left on each post. So tell us what you think of her heroes and her books!
So first up is the hero in Victoria’s first novel in the series, Against Her Rules. Read my full review here.
Campbell Scott. How can I even describe what it was like to have this taciturn, behemoth of a man sitting at my dining table? I wasn’t sure how talkative he was going to be, but one dram of my best scotch and he was good to go. For the interview. Get your heads out of the gutter.
KR: Thanks for agreeing to the interview, Cam. I’ll start with the basics. Where are you from?
CS: I was born in Glasgow. Lived in London for quite some time in my twenties and early thirties. Now I’m proud to call Heart’s Ease home.
KR: What do you do for a living?
CS: I’m an artist. I use to do a lot of portrait work, but these days I’m focusing more on nature. I have a book on Seabirds coming out soon.
KR: What do you like about Heart’s Ease?
CS: Besides a certain lady? (God, his laugh is hot!) The air. That was the first thing that struck me when I stepped out of the car. It was clean. Fresh. I also like the people, especially the Walshes.
KR: What do you wish was different?
CS: CELL SERVICE! Seriously. I’ve risked life and limb at times to get some decent reception.
KR: Good luck with that. Is there someone special in your life?
CS: Are you playing coy, Ms. Robbins? Of course there’s someone special. But I’ll play your game. Elsie Walsh is certainly a special someone for me.
KR: What do you like best about them?
CS: If I told you that I think she wouldn’t speak to me for some time. So let’s err on the side of caution and say her eyes.
KR: (fans self) What drives you nuts about them?
CS: The woman is a control freak.
KR: What’s the worst thing your author has done to you?
CS: She made me have breakfast with Ted Corbin. In retrospect, this worked out okay. But at the time, I thought it was pretty terrible.
KR: Who should play you in the movie adaptation of his novel?
CS: I don’t care as long as he’s Scottish. Apparently there are times when I haven’t shaved when Elsie says I have a resemblance to Gerard Butler. I’d prefer someone more debonair. I don’t suppose we could resurrect Connery from his Bond days?
KR: Works for me! What impression do you want to leave with readers?
CS: Me personally? Perhaps the notion that when you fall in love, it’s never too soon to say it. Or act upon it. Some people find mine and Elsie’s story a little unbelievable. But it’s our story and that’s how it happened for us. I don’t question if that prince really found a glass slipper that could possibly fit only one foot in the world. Likewise, I don’t question how quickly I recognized my feelings for Elsie Walsh.
Thanks for stopping my Cam! Glad I had some good scotch on hand for ye. 🙂 Tune in tomorrow everyone for my interview with the hunky hockey player from Hard As Ice, Jack Walsh.
Against Her Rules, Blurb
Thriving business? Check.
Sexual exploits with a rockstar? Check.
Complete independence? Check.
Elsie Walsh had it all. Or so she thought. Until Scottish hunk Campbell Scott showed up on the doorstep of her bed and breakfast. He’s making it pretty hard for her to stand by her one rule: No sleeping with the guests. She’s denied some of the world’s hottest actors, musicians, and even royals… but how can she keep Cam out of her bed, when he’s invaded her head and her heart? Campbell Scott went to the wilds of Newfoundland with one thing on his mind: sketch some birds, and then get back to his playboy lifestyle in London. But one look at his sexy hostess and there’s a whole lot more in the air than sea birds.
Rejection isn’t part of his vocabulary, and Cam sets out to not only convince Elsie that he belongs in her bed, but by her side at the Heart’s Ease Inn.
Want to know more about Victoria Barbour? Here’s where you can find her online.
Victoria BarbourVictoria lives on the island of Newfoundland, and is fiercely proud of her home. She can imagine no better setting for her works, and hopes that her readers will one day come to witness Newfoundland and Labrador’s rustic beauty for themselves. When she’s not writing, or trying to convince people to visit her home, she’s busy with her day-to-day life as a mother, wife, and marketing communications specialist.
She was born in St. John’s, and raised above her family’s fish and chips restaurant. She has traveled and lived in other parts of Canada, but chose to make her home where her heart has long resided. Victoria has a degree in History from Memorial University of Newfoundland, with a minor in Newfoundland Studies. The only thing that stands between her and a Master’s degree in History from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia is her thesis. She has a background in broadcast journalism, advertising, and marketing. She is a proud member of both the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and their affiliate chapter, Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada (RWAC).
Victoria counts herself lucky to be surrounded by an incredibly supportive family, and thanks her husband daily for his unerring faith in her, and for being a wonderful father to their infant son.
