The Devil in Her Bed is the third book in the stunning Devil You Know trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!
He lives in secret service to the Crown―a man of duty, deception, and an undeniable attraction to a woman who threatens to tear his whole world apart.
They call him the Devil of Dorset. He stands alone, a man of undeniable power. Moving in and out of shadows, back alleys and ballrooms, he is unstoppable and one of the Crown’s most dangerous weapons. However, when he sets his sights on the undeniably beautiful Countess of Mont Claire, Francesca Cavendish, he doesn’t realize that he has met a match like no other.
TRUE LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE
Francesca is a countess by day and stalks her prey―those responsible for the death of her family―by night. What she does not expect is to be thrown into the path of the devil himself, the Earl of Devlin. She has secrets of her own and he seems determined to lay them bare. Can her heart survive finding the love of her life and losing him when all is revealed?
An interview with the author, Kerrigan Bryne:
1. Tell us about your latest release.
THE DEVIL IN HER BED is about a spy and a countess who share a tragic and secret past. They’re thrown together to fight a common enemy, but what they end up fighting is their intense attraction to each other. Francesca, the heroine, has trained her entire life in weapons, combat, and revenge. Chandler, the hero, is who you would get if you mixed James Bond and John Wick, and I’m super excited for you to meet him!
2. Without giving away any spoilers, give us a hint about a favorite scene.
My favorite scene is when the heroine sneaks into a safehouse guarded by a hero. As they tussle in the dark, she ends up on top of him… but I won’t spoil who really has the upper hand. 😉
3. What inspired you to become a writer?
I’ve always been a reader, and when I was a kid I realized how much I wanted to make the stories I love end the way they did in my head. The only way to do that was to write them myself. 😊
4. What is a typical writing day for you like?
It’s not pretty! I wake up hard and stumble out of my bedroom to potty the dog. Then my hubby (who is a morning person for some crazy reason) has coffee made for me. *My hero! While I drink that one of us makes breakfast and we eat together. Then at about 8:30 I hit the computer and chat with my critique partners about what we’re going to do that day. That usually takes longer than it should, so I start writing right after. I try for about half to 1 scene a day and I often fall short because I’m such a slow writer! I edit as I go, so I do a lot of reading through what I’ve just done. I’m usually finished around 4 or 5 when I take the dogs for a walk and come home for dinner! After that I turn off my brain and either play video games, read my favorite authors, or watch some tv and cuddle with my love.
5. If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing?
This is such a difficult question because there are so many things I’m interested in! I’d love to be history teacher or an archeologist. But if I’m being real, here, I would probably end up a real estate agent. I love empty houses and buildings. I love the potential of them, wondering what they could be. What would happen in their walls. It’s very interesting to me.
6. Do you have any interesting writing quirks or habits?
I do a great deal of testing dialogue out loud… terrible accents and all. If anyone heard me they’d think I’d gone mad!
7. What has been one of the most surprising things you’ve learned as a published author?
Definitely that once you publish in one category, that seems to be your expected niche for the foreseeable future. If you write regency or Victorian, for example, it’s very difficult to be successful in another genre such as ancient Rome, suspense, or contemporary.
8. What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
Cynthia St. Aubin is probably the best writer of my acquaintance. She’s been my critique partner for almost 15 years now, and I am constantly in awe of her talent!
9. Do you have any favorite authors that you like to read?
My favorite authors are Christopher Moore, Lisa Kleypas, JR Ward, Lori Foster, and Karen Marie Moning.
10. What other hobbies or interests do you have?
I love to play video games on the Playstation, I love hiking in the woods with my dog and kayaking with my husband and friends. My favorite hobby is travel. I want to go everywhere!
11. Can you tell us about what’s coming up next after this for you writing wise?
Next I’ll be writing a series based on fairytales for St. Martin’s Press! I’m super excited about it.
12. How can readers connect with you online?
I am on all of the social media and I love to connect with readers!
