101 - Writing Stories that Reflect Your Own Experience with Adriana Herrera

Tea & Strumpets: A Regency Romance Review

26-05-2022 • 58 mins

One of the show's most anticipated novels of the year is finally about to be released. Your hosts have been not so patiently waiting to read A Caribbean Heiress in Paris, which meant we found a way to read it early and managed speak with the author herself, Adriana Herrera! Adriana has become well known for her contemporary romance novels but in her debut full-length historical, she has blown us away. We speak about the inspiration behind the novel and what it means to see yourself represented on the pages of your favorite books. There are also many tangents as we learn all about her research process, finding delicious historical tidbits, and talk at length about what fun it would have been to be in Paris during the late 1800's.
