Eileen Putman

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I really like being able to control my content and cover! Indie authors have more flexibility and more choices for format and distribution. I was traditionally published for years, but now I'm my own boss!
What are you working on next?
Book 4 of my Maitland's Rogues series! And "Lord Difficult," Book 3, is making its way to the publisher now. Very excited about that! A brief summary:

A failed matchmaker who doesn’t believe in love faces her greatest test in Robert Tavish—an intimidating beast of a man who refuses to comply with even basic requirements for a prospective husband. He won’t dance. He won’t learn manners. He won’t even try to please a woman. Robert, a reluctant earl whose only noticeable passion is studying fossils, is pretending to seek a bride at his uncle’s behest to learn whether Emmaline Stanhope is betraying her country and linked to a murder. Although Emmaline doesn’t believe in fairy tales, Robert awakens a disturbing desire to believe in the very fantasies they conjure. But with only one decent frock and her feet planted firmly on the ground, she knows she’s not the Beauty to claim this Beast. Oh, but then he saves her life. Whisks her off to Scotland. Reveals dark secrets. Can she turn away from the spark lurking in those stone-gray eyes?

Love in Disguise
Daring masquerades, with love as the prize In these tales of Regency intrigue, nothing is as it seems: A street wench masquerades as a debutante to fulfill a rake’s wager; an actress pretends to be a vengeful lord’s mistress to catch a killer. A noble war hero disguises himself as a much older man to woo an on-the-shelf spinster. An independent widow forces her disapproving business partner to pretend to be her fiancé — and teach her about passion. All are daring masquerades, with love as the prize.
