About the Author
An award winning author, including the GOLD in Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards, Jen Geigle Johnson discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager.
She once greeted an ancient turtle under the water by grabbing her fin. She knows all about the sound a water-ski makes on glassy water and how to fall down steep moguls with grace. During a study break date in college, she sat on top of a jeep's roll bars up in the mountains and fell in love.
Now, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
1. What inspired the idea for The Duke's Second Chance?
There is a duke associated with Arundel castle who had a really really hard time of it. And his story kind of got my mind spinning. This Duke lost his wife, then his second wife was committed to Bedlam but he was married to her. But then as I started to write a story about a Duke's second chance at happiness, I fell in love with the story. I felt so sad for him that he lost his first wife, and when I realized how much this character loved and missed his wife, I wanted the readers to know that too. So that when he got his chance to love again, we could all appreciate how nice that was for him and his little boy.
2. What did you as an author take away from writing The Duke's Second Chance?
My takeaway from the story is just how much the heart can love. Sometimes we view everything in life as a form of competition. But love just isn't like that. Loving one person doesn't take away love from another. The heart has an infinite capacity to love, and more love just makes it grow.
3. What is your current WIP? What can you share with us about it?
I am currently working on book 2 in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex series. It is Morley's story and I introduce even more the family of sisters we meet for a moment in The Duke's Second Chance. I am also working on a SUPER fun idea for Covenant my publisher. I can't wait for you to see this one.
4. What top 5 books do you currently have on your TBR pile?
1)My Fair Spinster by Rebecca Connolly
2)Deborah: Prophetess of God by H.B. Moore
3)Discovering Grace by Sally Britton
4)Wyatt by Sysan May Warren
5)Something by Kristi Ann Hunter.
5. What is your favorite part about fall?
My absolute favorite part of fall is the chilly weather that makes me want to curl up with a book.
