Virtual Book Tour + #Giveaway: Irresistible by Darcy Burke @darcyburke @GoddessFish


by Darcy Burke

GENRE: Historical Romance (Regency)


Jessamine Goodfellow has spent six Seasons avoiding the parson’s trap, and spinsterhood is finally within her grasp. A brilliant scholar, she longs for adventure and new experiences, things her family frowns upon. Presented with the opportunity to use her puzzle-solving talent on a secret mission for the Foreign Office, Jess eagerly accepts. Even when it means posing as the wife of a scorchingly attractive Scotsman who she must also covertly investigate as a possible double agent.

Lord Dougal MacNair, the new Viscount Fallin, has always completed his assignments for the Foreign Office alone. Now he’s saddled with an overly enthusiastic amateur partner. She possesses a remarkable intellect, but something about her isn’t quite right, and after two failed missions, Dougal is certain someone is working against him. Battling their secret suspicions, Dougal and Jess dive deep into their cover as a married couple, which arouses temptations they find irresistible. Danger is all around them, but it’s their hearts that may be the most imperiled.

 “Tell me why I’ve hurried back.”

A mission to the Dorset coast. You leave in a week.”

Dougal frowned. “If I don’t leave for a week, why am I here now?”

Lucien hesitated the barest moment. “Because you need time to prepare with your partner.”

My what?”

Voices in the hall interrupted further conversation because a moment later, Lucien’s butler announced the arrival of Lady Pickering and Miss Jessamine Goodfellow. Dougal was very familiar with Lady Pickering, but the other white woman was unknown to him. Taller than most ladies, Miss Goodfellow possessed vivid cobalt eyes that assessed him with a keen curiosity. Indeed, her unabashed attention could only mean one thing—that she was to be his partner.

Lady Pickering moved her vigilant gaze toward him. “I’m pleased you could arrive so quickly, Lord Fallin. I do apologize that you were called away at this time.”

Dougal inclined his head. “I am always eager to serve.”

One of your best qualities.” Lady Pickering turned slightly toward the young lady. “Jessamine, this is Lord Fallin.” Lady Pickering then looked to Dougal. “Allow me to present Miss Jessamine Goodfellow. She will be your wife on this endeavor.”

My what?” First, he had a partner, and now he had a wife?

Interview with Darcy Burke

Author of Irresistible

If you could have one paranormal ability, what would it be?

I’d like to go back in time. Not to change anything, but to just relive special moments. I’d also like to go back and talk to my dad. He died when I was 16 so I didn’t know him as an adult. I’d love to talk to him from my current perspective.

What is one thing your readers would be most surprised to learn about you?

Maybe that I never read Jane Austen until I was an adult? (And, shhh, I haven’t read all of her books!) Or how about the fact that I hate coffee? I’ll take a chai tea though!

When writing descriptions of your hero/ine, what feature do you start with?

I think almost always hair color. I find physical descriptions SO hard! I don’t really picture actual people when I’m reading or writing. Because of that, it’s hard for me to put into words how I “see” them.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Plotter in that I outline a book. Once I have that framework, I write to each turning point. The most I plot is from one turning point to the next—not usually more than five scenes at once. The last third of the book typically comes into view so I can often plot that out. But everything is subject to change!

Did you learn anything from writing this book? If so, what?

I learned that no matter how many books I’ve written and how well I think I’ve nailed down a process, a book will come along and say, “You don’t know anything!” 😂

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Darcy Burke is the USA Today Bestselling Author of sexy, emotional historical and contemporary romance. Darcy wrote her first book at age 11, a happily ever after about a swan addicted to magic and the female swan who loved him, with exceedingly poor illustrations. Click here to Join her Reader Club.

A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her guitar-strumming husband, artist daughter, and imaginative son who will almost certainly out-write her one day (that may be tomorrow).

They’re a crazy cat family with two Bengal cats, a small, fame-seeking cat named after a fruit, an older rescue Maine Coon with attitude to spare, and a collection of neighbor cats who hang out on the deck and occasionally venture inside. You can find Darcy at a winery, in her comfy writing chair, or binge-watching TV with the family.

Her happy places are Disneyland, Labor Day weekend at the Gorge, Denmark, and anywhere in the UK—so long as her family is there too.
