The Next Best Thing - Tagged for WIP challenge!

I've been tagged by the delightful   Debra Suzanne Ingram for The Next Best Thing.  

So here we go with the questionnaire:

What is the working title of your next book?
Toast of Clifton -  Book 2 in the Royal Series [4 books]

Where did the idea come from?
It's a sequel to book 1 - By Loyalty Divided - and you might not believe me if I told you, so I’ll just say “Ghost of a Horse”

What genre does your book fall under?
Historical Romance

What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Richard Armitage & Kiera Knightley

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Toast of Clifton is a story of intense and passionate love in which past betrayal haunts the hero, and when the chance to right a wrong comes his way he takes it, but to lose every thing including the love of his life will be a high price to pay for heroism.

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?

How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
Five months.

What other books would you compare this story to within the same genre?
By Loyalty Divided – Francine Howarth/ Herald of Joy – Pamela Belle/ Royal Escape – Georgette Heyer

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
A house I lived in and a house I knew well.

What else about your book might pique the readers interest?
That it's set within the 17th century during the period of the English Civil War, that it features swashbuckling Cavaliers & Roundheads and royal persons of note.

Now here's the fun bit I had to tag five other authors, and here they are: please pay them a visit and see what sort of books they pen!
