When Lady Helena Simpson flees an unwanted marriage to a revolting lord, she finds refuge with James, a charming, handsome man unlike any she’s ever known. Helena concocts the perfect solution to her problem. She asks—begs—James to ruin her. Surely her betrothed will repudiate her if she is no longer pure. And if all her efforts fail and she still ends up married to a horrid man until the end of her days, she will at least once have known true passion.

But James is not all he seems. He is, in fact, a wicked lord with a dark fancy. When Helena awakens his desire, he becomes determined to take everything she has to offer and more. No matter the cost.

The authors and attendees of the Historical Romance Retreat will be descending on Spokane, Washington in the next few days.  Since I’ve lived in Spokane for the last 15 years, I thought it would be nice to give a little tour of downtown Spokane and some things to see and do within walking distance from the hotel where HRR will be held.

This past weekend, my nephews and I wandered around downtown looking for places to feature.   We’ll start at the Davenport Hotel where the conference is being held.   The Davenport is one of the most luxurious hotels in Washington State and originally opened on 1914.  The hotel shut down in 1985 and was nearly demolished before it began restorations in 2002.  Here are a couple photographs we took of the main atrium which includes a seating area, restaurant and coffee bar.

img_3520Jen:  We’re less than a week away from the Historical Romance Retreat and we’re excited to welcome Katherine Bone to Romancing the Book.  Katherine, will you share a short bio with us?
Katherine:  National best-selling historical romance author Katherine Bone has been passionate about history since she had the opportunity to travel to various Army bases, castles, battlegrounds, and cathedrals as an Army brat turned officer’s wife. Who knew that an Army wife’s passion for romance novels would lead to pirates? Certainly not her rogue, whose Alma Mater’s adage is “Go Army. Beat Navy!” Now enjoying the best of both worlds, Katherine lives with her rogue in the south where she writes about rogues, rebels, and rakes—aka pirates, lords, captains, duty, honor, and country—and the happily-ever-afters that every alpha male and damsel deserve.
