Celebrating the release of The Wager

Meet Damian Andrews:
Damian's interview

Tell us something about yourself:
I am a second son and love the freedom. I can go where I want and do what I want to do. I like to right wrongs done by the world to those less fortunate.

Is that why you smuggle?
Yes, it is much easier to play a foolish dandy with too much money when you are committing crimes against the government. The authorities don't look in your direction too often. They don't believe you could possibly do anything with your time save gamble your fathers money and play with your paramour.

Are we talking about French brandy?

I thought you knew I smuggle political and religious refugees from other countries. They come across the English Channel to the Dover shores. The brandy is merely a ruse.

Why did you wager with your friends?
They weren't really my friends, and I had to keep my cover in tact.

Tell the whole truth.
It was love at first sight. And I don't believe in love--period.

Tell us a little about the wager.
I don't think so. Perhaps you should read the book.

Who won? You or Amorica?
I guess you could say we both won. Although at one point it didn't appear either of us would win.

Why are there white roses on the cover of your book?
White roses are Amorica's favorite flowers. And once I had to scale a thorny trellis of said flowers.

How did you meet Christine?
Amorica introduced us. Actually Christine's daughter created all of us. I think Christine has ten more books to write. I wonder if she will ever finish all the stories. Amorica has three younger sisters and eight cousins. Aidan's the littlest and she is a spitfire--fancies herself in love with a rogue named Blade.

Are there characters in Christine's head besides the ones you mentioned above?
Many, I share the spotlight with Allura and Hunter. There story came before mine. Hunter is a bastard son of an English Earl. And Allura is the oldest daughter of the McCllean clan.

Anything else you want to add?
I think Christine should hurry up on the retirement plan and get busy writing their stories. I'm eager to read them and she's not writing fast enough.

Is she writing at all?
A little, I think. I've heard via the gossip mills in court that she has the third book A Marriage of Inconvenience, almost written.

Anything else you want to add?
Buy my book and I assure you will enjoy the tale of adventure, love and intrigue.

Thank you so much, Damian.
You are very welcome.
