“Never Run From Love (Kellington Book 4)” by Maureen Driscoll

A Few of My Favorite Things

Historical Romance Month continues this week on Nesie’s Place with the work of author Maureen Driscoll in the spotlight! Maureen shares her personal insights on books from two of her series, The Kellingtons and The Emersons. Also, THREE random commenters will win ebooks each day this week! Good times!

I know I’m not the only person to fall for a bad boy.  Unfortunately, my personal dating life is filled with too many of them.  The good thing about writing is you can reform a bad boy and he stays reformed.  Results may vary in real life.

The first series of Regency romances I wrote revolved around the Kellington family, headed by William (Liam) Kellington, the Duke of Lynwood.  He had four siblings:  Edward, Arthur, Hal and Lizzie.  The fourth book was about Hal, the biggest playboy of them all.  The book is the most sexually explicit of any I’ve written and opens with two couples having sex in a brothel.

Hal is getting bored with his life of debauchery and meets an American reformer who is helping prostitutes start new lives in America.  He makes the biggest transformation of all as he goes from being a bad boy to a very good man (though still fun in the bedroom).

What inspired me most about the story was I like imperfect people at a crossroads.  Life gets most interesting when you have to make a choice to become a better person or continue as you were.  And it’s one reason why I like Hal so much.

Who is the TV bad boy you’d most like to date?  For me, it could be just about any guy on SONS OF ANARCHY, though if I had to pick one, it’d be Jax Teller.

Never Run From Love

“Never Run From Love (Kellingtons Book 4)”

Author: Maureen Driscoll

Genre: Historical Romance/Regency

Release Date: November 16, 2013

Amazon buttonKindle Unlimited

Another Kellington brother finds love in the fourth book of Maureen Driscoll’s Regency romance series.

When Hal Kellington sees a respectable reform worker with the stockings of a courtesan, he’s intrigued. When his friend wagers he cannot kiss the chit, he’s challenged. And when he gets to know the spirited American, he realizes the stakes are higher than he could possibly imagine.

Since arriving in England to live with her uncle and aunt, Melanie Sutton has been working to help London prostitutes start new lives in America. When they begin disappearing, she accepts the help of a notorious rake to track them down. But she soon discovers that resisting temptation is much easier preached than practiced.

NEVER RUN FROM LOVE contains explicit language and adult situations. The earlier books in the series were NEVER WAGER AGAINST LOVE (Book 3), NEVER MISS A CHANCE (Book 2) and NEVER A MISTRESS, NO LONGER A MAID (Book 1), which USA TODAY’S HAPPY EVER AFTER blog called “enjoyable, suspenseful and satisfying.”


Maureen DriscollDanielle Fishel calls Maureen Driscoll her “most favorite author of all things naughty and delicious.”

Maureen is a television writer based in Los Angeles whose credits include MADtv, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Nickelodeon’s BrainSurge.  She was also a former recipient of a Walt Disney Studios screenwriting fellowship, where she wrote a romantic comedy based on her rather painful divorce.  The script didn’t make it to the big screen, but it did teach her a few things about happily ever after.

Before moving to Hollywood, Maureen spent nearly a decade working on Capitol Hill.  Her Dating Geroge Clooneynovel Dating George Clooney is a political satire inspired by those years.

She has written two Regency Romance series, one centered on the Kellington family and the other on the Emersons.  She is launching a third in 2017 called the Jasmine Cottage series and has also written a time travel romance set in America in the 1920s called The Tycoon Murderer, to be released later this year.  She can be found occasionally on Twitter at @MaureenDriscoll, slightly more frequently on Facebook at Maureen Driscoll Author and almost never on her blog at MaureenDriscollRomance.wordpress.com.

    I loved this article! Bad boys are always in vogue…as long as they do not constantly bring trouble to your door 🙂 However, you do not want them too reformed 😉 My kind of bad boy…let me think…I was crazy about Person of Interest. It was so cerebral and Reese was a bad ass…loved him! Even though he had a tortured soul, he had a good heart. Any he was sexy as hell LOL

    I am going to go check out your books and see which one I want to read first. Good luck with your newest venture and nice to meet you!

      I loved Person of Interest, too. And whoever thought of making Reese the Man in the Suit was brilliant. Too reformed is awful. You still want him to kick butt on your behalf, as needed. Now I’m going to be thinking of Reese all day. Thank you for commenting and it was nice meeting you, too!
