On this Episode of Buzzing about Romance we are with author Maria Luis about her latest series The Broken Crown Trilogy and her inspiration to take a bit of a darker and angstier turn in her romances.
Meet Maris Luis: Maria is a big fan of books, nature, dogs, and pretty things – not always in that order, though.
By day, Maria is a historian who specializes in 19th century New Orleans and 14th century London. What do the two eras have in common? Not much, except for disease, scandal, and crime – Maria’s favorite historical topics. (For real, if you want to talk any of the above, just reach out!)
When not digging through the archives, Maria writes romances about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet.
Her favorite book will always be “Scandal in Spring” by Lisa Kleypas – she’s worn the pages so much by re-reading it, but will never give it up.
