Author spotlight: Anna Campbell

5 October 2021

In the lead-up to ARR2021 in December we will be spotlighting the authors who will be signing. In the spotlight today we have Anna Campbell.

Who was the first romance author to catch your interest?

Georgette Heyer via my mother. Barbara Cartland via my grandmother.

What do you write?

Historical romance series in third person (mostly Regency).

Which usually comes to you first—characters or plot (or something else)?

I usually start with characters and opening scene and some sort of a problem that the characters need to solve. The plot generally emerges from that.

Choose one of your books to turn into a movie—who would you cast in the lead roles?

I’ll choose the first book in my new A Scandal in Mayfair series, One Wicked Wish, which is a steamy rake–governess romance set in 1816. Stella, the heroine, needs to be smart and strong, so I’m thinking Emilia Clarke. The Earl of Halston, the hero, is a really sexy rake so I think I need someone with that English brand of charisma like Matthew Goode. I think he’d look wonderful in Regency costume!

Tell us about your latest release in 100 words or less:

Two Secret Sins is the next steamy instalment in the A Scandal in Mayfair series. It’s an attraction of opposites story featuring a man of immaculate character with political ambitions and a notorious widow with an unhappy marriage in her past. Eliot Ridley, Viscount Colville, and Lady Verena Gerard have been conducting a secret affair for six months when the story opens, but everything changes after Eliot recklessly decides to propose. When the once-respectable lord sets out to convince the wayward lady to take a chance on happily ever after, scandal ignites and sets high society on its ear.

What else are you working on in 2021?

I’m currently writing book 3 in my A Scandal in Mayfair series, Three Times Tempted, which should be out around late October.
