Alessandra is forced to adopt a name that isn’t really hers, when she returns to Austria to claim an inheritance…that isn’t really hers. She’s certain that her Romany grandmother left her the property nestled in the foothills of the Alps.
Raul, heir to the Stirling dukedom, is determined to unmask Alessandra’s masquerade. He knows she’s lying. More importantly, he needs the same property she’s claiming, and he’s sure that his need is more desperate than hers. Because the duke is not all he seems, either.
This battle will be fiercely waged.
Not in a court of law.
But in the hearts of Alessandra and her fairy-tale duke.

Author Interview

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Carly Carson here with us today. Carly, Thanks for visiting us.
Thanks for having me.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing? 
I’ve been writing all my life. My cousin and I used to exchange stories we made up via snail mail. I started professional writing when I won an entry in a Harlequin Round Robin writing contest. They asked if I had any submissions anywhere in their office. Sadly, I did not. But I was hooked!

Tell us about your title featured in: Sweeter Than Chocolate: Valentine's Day Anthology.
My title, Royal Masquerade, is part of my series about British dukes.

Blurb: A kingdom of the heart is hard to hold onto…

Alessandra adopts a name that isn't really hers, when she returns to Austria to claim an inheritance...that isn't really hers. She must claim her Romany grandmother’s property, which is all that’s left of her family and her childhood.

Raul, heir to the Stirling dukedom, must unmask Alessandra's masquerade. Because he needs the same property she's claiming, and his need is more desperate. Because the duke is not all he seems, either. 

The battle will be fiercely waged. 
Not in a court of law.
But in the hearts of Alessandra and her fairy-tale duke.

How did you come up with the storyline? 
I had already started a series about British dukes. I’ve always been interested in marginalized people, and how they retain their cultures, so I knew I wanted to incorporate the Romany people, which required me to move the story to Europe. Then I love to ski, so I thought it would be fun to include a bit of that sport. And voila! Royal Masquerade was born.

What inspires you to write? 
I’m inspired by my love of romance. I want everyone to have a happily ever after, which I can at least achieve in my books, if not in real life!

What is your favorite genre to read? 
I read most every romance genre, but my favorites are contemporary, military, and romantic suspense. 

What would you say is the one thing you are most passionate about outside of writing? 
Of course, the number one thing is my family. But who wouldn’t say that? I do love to travel, whether it’s hopping in the car for a day trip to an unknown destination, or a carefully planned holiday someplace exotic. I have to be busy on my vacations, preferring to see all the sights, rather than relaxing on a sunny beach. I’m truly passionate about seeking out gorgeous scenery, and wildlife.

When you are not writing, what do you like to do? 
I love to read, of course. I love many sports like all paddle sports, skiing, exercise classes, swimming, etc. I’m a big board game enthusiast. I love traveling and entertaining, and being with friends and family.

Tell us about your other books.
Duke of Devonwood is the first in my series of books about British dukes. Sparks fly as Miranda plots to gain control of her inheritance from a modern day Duke who tries his best to resist her wiles.

Let’s see. If you like military romance, I have Taken by a Navy SEAL: A Navy SEAL follows the rules. A desperate American woman, his accidental captive, must break them.

If you like billionaires, I’ve written a few books in that genre, including Seduced by the Billionaire: To save her sister, a sexy businesswoman accepts a mysterious, high-paying job with a hot business tycoon. But he thinks he’s hired a new mistress. 

Also in the contemporary genre, I have several shorter novels/novellas with a touch of paranormal which are known as the Love Charm series. A group of young women friends are each, in turn, gifted by a fortuneteller with a silver bean to use in a love charm. Can each of them find what she seeks, even if the right choice is well hidden?

About the Author: 
Carly is a contemporary romance author, who will never marry into the British nobility, as she is already happily married to Traveling Man. But there’s nothing wrong with a little fantasy in one’s life, right? She has three children, who provide a daily dose of reality, even though they are almost perfect (just ask them!) Carly loves hearing from her readers.
