Writing Buddy Wednesday - Anna Campbell

Anna Campbell is who I call the Queen of Regency Noir. Her books are dark, compelling, and full of forbidden romance. She is a favourite with readers and with writers alike. She debuted with her book Claiming the Courtesan, which featured as the heroine a woman who had spent years as a courtesan. Now, we see it more. Then, it was new ground. Her characters are full of anguish, and have real demons to fight.

I've known Anna via the RWAus' email loop for many years now, and each time we have met in person, I'm always astounded at her enthusiasm and positive attitude. She almost bounces along with it. We were lucky enough last year to have her as one of the speaker's as the SARA/RWAus roadshow, Romancing The Novel, where she was both informative and entertaining. If you ever get a chance to hear her speak, go for it. 

Anna works tirelessly and you can see her on Facebook early in the morning chatting away to her fans. She's a perfect ambassador for the romance writing world. 

I've read Claiming the Courtesan and Untouched, both fantastic books, with characters dealing with their demons. She does love to torture her characters.

Her latest release is Midnight's Wild Passion. Here is the blurb.

London's most notorious seducer, Nicholas Challoner lives solely for revenge…
The dashing, licentious Marquess of Ranelaw can never forgive Godfrey Demarest for ruining his sister - now the time has come to repay the villain in the same coin. But one formidably intriguing impediment stands in the way of Nicholas's vengeance: Miss Antonia Smith, companion to his foe's unsuspecting daughter.
Having herself been deceived and disgraced by a rogue - banished by her privileged family as a result and forced to live a lie - Antonia vows to protect her charge from the same cruel fate. She recognizes Ranelaw for the shameless blackguard he is, and will devote every ounce of her intelligence and resolve to thwarting him.
Yet Antonia has always had a fatal weakness for rakes…

Anna can be found on her website.

Here is some cover love.
